To let you know off hand. I am not much of a writer. I feel I have to put this info down someplace and chat about it. Maybe, just maybe I may get feedback on what I am trying to write about.
First off, I am going to be turning 60 this year. Gaul how did I ever get that old. Well for some it is not that old. You know they say the 60 is now the new 40. Age does not mean anything anymore. You think? I guess that is someone else’s opinion. Mine is that I am as old as I feel. Some days may be 25, others I may be 80.
Second there is retirement. You are suppose to be having the time of your life now. Um! Really? Mind you I do have some fun times. Others I sit on the couch and really just do sweet dick all. Depending on what age I feel for the day
Going along with retirement is travel. I do love to travel. As long as it isn’t with my hubby. I do enjoy his company, but he just wants to do too much and if I just want to sit back and chill it ain’t gonna happen. We will walk for miles and sometimes see a lot. Other times not too much, but allot of walking. It is always go, go, go. Oh and then if I do something stupid he gives me the look and sometimes arguments roll around with that. Or when he is driving someplace and I say, “I think you should have turned back there”. Why didn’t you say something. You know though GPS has made that allot better. For travel though I like to go someplace for a week or two. Enjoy the scenery there and then come home to my own couch again. He has the idea that we should have some sort of camper van and travel around all over the country for months on end. I don’t think I could be in closed quarters for that long driving down highways and byways. Well will have to keep an open mind as he retires next year.
Thirdly. I am one sick cookie. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome. A little known disease, but it has added more auto immune diseases to go along with it. I have fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis , IBS, and Reynards. If that isn’t enough there are a few other things that are creeping into my life that I do not want to hear about. Every time I go back to the rhuemy I am told about something else I may have. So this is my life in a nut shell.
Oh also I am a member of the Red Hat Society. It is a world wide organization that is full of fun, laughter and lots of love. Well sometimes you meet up with someone who does not think the way you do about the society, but mostly it is loads of fun. I have traveled all around Canada and the US to play with these ladies. Have made so many friends I can talk with. In a couple of years I am planning on going to Australia to go to a red hat convention there. New experience and I am excited and scared shitless at the same time. So you will see post from adventures I am doing with them.
One thing I do love to do is craft. So you may see a few of my crafting projects come up on here once in awhile. Travels will be here and yes my complaining about my health and how the heck I feel from one day to the next. Below was a couple of diddies I wrote on another blog that didn’t seem to go anywhere. Except for me complaining all the time about how I was feeling. I try to be update but just sometimes it is dang hard.
I retired a couple of years ago. Mostly because I am not able to work anymore. Still would like to be working, but I can not stay awake somedays. Others my back and legs do not want to hold me up anymore. Then there are days I feel so good and hope that it is going to last…I miss my paycheque. I love to spend money.
So that is it in a nutshell. I know my boring life, but maybe me telling you about things might make it so you are not alone in your adventures in life. For fibro no one person is the same. Some it may effect so much and others may only bother a little. So many different symptoms and things that happen. You will know about my ups and downs. The fun I have, the adventures I have and the days I may just be on the couch chillaxing. Life goes on. Whether it is good or bad is up to me, myself and I. There is only one person that really, really matters to me and that is me.
Talk to you again later.
