Older than 60 -- so there!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

What's a Sigmoid preciousssssss? Not heard of that. *blinks rapidly* Do I want to know????

Off today after two days on. Then back tomorrow for a mid shift and then a closing shift on Monday then two days off.

Some days I feel I am finally getting used to this job, some days I get home and fall on the couch for an hour or two before even changing clothing. Pathetic, I swear.

I bought some Dr. Shoals gel inserts...if they are making a difference, I don't feel it!!! And they were expensive ta boot. :(

A sigmoidoscopy is and smaller version of a colonoscopy! still uncomfortable but I guess not as bad.

Hey Tooks and rwhen!! Getting older sucks!!! My mom fell and broke her hip yesterday so I will be gone the rest of the week and then the weekend. But I shall return next week. She had pins put in her hip today and did well. She is uncomfortable till they give her a pain shot and then she sleeps. I will be going down to help keep mom company till we can get her into a nursing facility. My other sister will be in from Missouri next week to help out too. My mom is 84. I am doing okay right now but a little stressed. I hate Seattle, Tacoma and Auburn traffic.

Vanadarliin' :hug: Sorry to read about your mom and her breaking her hip. That seems to happen to many folks at some older age. I will add her to my prayer list. And you be careful driving up in the Seattle area, it isn't the easiest for me either. Hang in there and let us know how she is doing when you can post on up again. :hug:

rwhen is doin' fine. No ice cream, but getting ready to jump in the shower and wash the nasty of the night off my body. Looks like all are doing well.

I made it back on Friday from helping get my mom settled into a nursing facility for her rehab. She won't be able to put any weight on her left leg for 6 to 8 weeks while it heals from the break and the pins they put into it. They did not do a hip replacement because the bone did not get displaced or tweaked too much so they could pin it easier. She has been so out of it because the narcotics and anesthesia really wreak havoc on her mentally. But I got pictures today that she is up in a wheel chair and dressed in street clothes and looking so much brighter and smiling!!! I am so excited for her!

What a wet weekend event! But it was so much fun! Lots of friends and good food, war and archery!!! Ladies in pretty dresses and wrapped in wool cloaks to keep warm around camp fires!!! Great times!! Last weekend event till the end of January!!!

Makes me realize how old I am getting. I need my memory foam bed or I am not camping! My friends are even jealous but that just inspires them to make medieval beds too and get off the cold hard ground!!!

Vanadarlin', so glad to get the good update on the mom and that they didn't have do to a replacement. I am so very careful not to fall, especially in the shower. I wear flops in the shower so that my feet don't slip out. Now, I have never broken a bone in my body and being the milk baby all my life that I have been, maybe i have stronger bones than I think I do...but I ain't takin' any chances. ;)

Also sounds wonderful at your last event for the year. And I agree, sleeping on a hard cold ground would bite the big one. I am more of a glamping gal....if there is no room service, I am probably not going. :D I know....I am totally a wuss. But glad you enjoy it so much. :hug:

Trust me I only do Glamping now too!!! Our pavilion is 16 by 16 and waterproof. I have the medieval bed with the memory foam mattress. I have a table for the camp stove and one for my battery lanterns. I have LED tiki torches so they look like flickering flames but they are solar powered. We have a propane fire pit brazer and comfy chairs. I don't do anything that is not with some form of comfort. Well the porta potties are a downer but I have my own for at night so I don''t have to go out into the elements. I now have my own power supply too to recharge cell phones, lanterns and run my nebulizer. I have to have my warm wool cloak lined with fleece to keep me warm and wool mittens too. I wore rubber boots in the rain this weekend, I did not want wet cold feet! If everything in our world went bupkis I could survive with what I have and learned but I do appreciate coming home to all the amenities of home.

That is pretty impressive!!! Other than the bathroom situation....I think even I could deal with that for a bit. :hug:

Okay...today feeling tired after a long busy day at work yesterday. But still some chores to do around the house and I am up at 5:30 this morning...what is up with that!! All else is well I suppose. So I hope that all the oldsters are feel good and looking forward to the day.
