This-s and that's-s....... ,-)

Why are bathroom sinks, low?????   I am short.  And bathroom sinks, still make me bend over a bit.  And that particular "little bend over," can be problematic, for a back problem.   Why are they low?????????????

Not long ago, birds were in a "fighting-for-a-mate" frenzy.  Now they seem to be in a "nest-building" frenzy.  :-)  Do they even stop, to eat?

"...my life is controlled by the “urgent” and not the important and I don’t want it to be this way."
Source - a comment, on a blog post

What a lovely thought....   What Wisdom, it invokes...  It can obviously pertain to a mom, with house and family to keep rolling along.  But it could also pertain to those of us, who are retired, and past child rearing time.  Even though we have less duties, our life can still bounce from "urgent" to "urgent"...

Any living space, needs upkeep.  And humans need to be fed.  Clothes need to be washed.  Pets need to be fed and taken care of.  Etc.  Etc.  Even the "retired life," has its "urgents".

But with some logical planning, could we plan our "urgents"?  So to smoothly, keep them under control?  In order that, everything gets done, and we still have plenty of worry-free time, for our "want"-activities...  And "want"-activities, is what I'd call our "important" stuff.  ,-)

Gotta' keep going, and going, and going, and going, and.....


Everyone body knows what that is!  The Energizer Bunny.  And everybody knows, what words go with him...  "He keeps going and going and going."  So, this picture is meant to mean, that with siatica, one has to keep going and going and going.  Keep moving and walking and moving and walking and...

And keep taking Ibuprofen and Tylenol.  But the 'old' tightness, doesn't want to quit.  And after lugging that walker around (yes, it is light weight)...  But the brand new (for me) process, of lugging a walker around, manages to make MANY muscles, complain "mightily".  LOL...

Let's take another look at the "EB" float...  Notice the below-the-waist physique, on him????  Guess what???  It is a lot like my physique!!!!!!  While some may refer to this, as being 'zaftig' (having a full rounded figure)...  I prefer honesty.  I am simply too damn fat, from waist down.

Nope, can't do this!!!!  If I could, I surely wouldn't have my over-weight issue!!!

Believe it or not, years ago, I did do free weights, like above.  And used gym machines.  I did!  I did!  And I was Nana-age toooo!  :-)

OK, back to present day.  Needless to say, siatica demands loss of weight.  (Hehhh, doesn't everything?????)  ,-)   I know I need to.  Duhhhhhhh...    I know I want to.  Duhhhhh...  So I'm maintaining a more watchful eye, on everything and how much, enters my mouth.  

(Tammy, I can "see" you jumping around in your computer chair, as you read this.  I  know...  "Wheat Belly"...  And I am working on eliminating the G/F sources of "bad grains")  ...

But in lieu of real walking exercise, for now, while I am still "tied up" with siatica, I am.... don't laugh!!!!...   Pumping iron with my walker!!!   Along with moving around, walking,  etc.

Hey, it's not that light!   -pout-   No matter what they say!!!  -pout-  And what I do is...  Lift it and put it down, lift it and put it down, etc.  Pumping iron with the walker!!!!  LOL.  OK you can laugh.  But an "olden" gal has to do, what an "olden" gal has to do!!!!!!  ,-)

Everyone, play-nice, till I'm back to catching up with you.
