I Am Getting Old…

It’s snowing again. A lot.

Now I like snow, I really do, but we have had a lot of snow already this year, and right now I am getting a little sick of it!

If I could go out in it once or twice a day I could live with that, but the puppies want to be out running around, so they con me into believing that they need to wee-wee. So out we go and then they just take off, running like little wild ones around the back yard!

Good times!

I also have discovered that bringing them out is easier if I shovel the patio and then a little walk way, and I have also discovered that shoulders and lower backs ache after doing this.

It’s painful to realize that most of these feelings are due to the fact that I am getting old-(er). I can recall the days when I could shovel snow for hours and play with my doggies in the snow and not feel chilly and wet.

So while children in New England are happily singing about a “White Christmas” I am sitting here saying “Bah Humbug”!

  1. I wouldn’t say you are getting old or older, you just get a little slower but there is no hurry, take it easy, lol ! I think I never shovelled snow in my whole life because when there was snow I was a kid after that very rare times Mr. Gattino shovelled and since a few years I haven’t seen much snow. If it snows it’s not enough to shovel away. Therefore I don’t know if I am getting old or not !
    BTW I don’t send any Christmas cards since a couple of years, I send them in email form then I am sure they arrive and those who don’t have an email I just call. I advanced to a very modern woman ! (grin*)

  2. Hi Mom,
    I hear you on being tired of the snow–but for me, it just because of the LONG commutes. I did leave early yesterday, so it took me ONLY 2.5 hours to get home, which I guess was not long compared to many others who left later…. It still seemed rough to me. Was tempted to work from home today, but did make it in to the office!
    Hope you have a great day!
    Love you,
