Weekend Plans

I just enjoyed a very nice lunch with a co-worker and now I am all ready for the weekend. It’s supposed to be a damp one this weekend. Not a lot of rain but drizzle here and there. I love rainy days when I can spend them at home.

Tonight.. not much planned but tomorrow we have lots going on. Ballet, taxes and the Blue and Gold dinner for Scouts. The dinner will be a longggg event. Always is, but the kids seem to enjoy it. Although this year they are doing Chinese food and my son will not touch Chinese food with a 10 ft pole (or chopstick!). My little one will try anything. She’s like her Mom.

Oh…almost forgot about Oscar weekend. I haven’t seen too many of the movies but I always enjoy the pre-Oscar coverage. I hope to make something yummy and just hunker down to watch it. Rain, jammies..maybe even get the fireplace going. That sounds nice, doesn’t it? Ok, how many more hours of work do I have?



Ugh..Old Age

Every once in awhile I throw my back out. Not the major “Help! I can’t get up!” type blow out but the simple, everyday.. “reach for something” type of pull. I managed to do this this morning while reaching for shampoo. Yes, shampoo! We are talking a mere 20 ounces when full, but the bottle was half empty..so you do the math.

Now..they say that this happens when you do not have a strong “core”. Well, I have been doing sit-ups and as miserable as I look doing them, I believe I am doing them correctly. What I did not factor into the equation was my age. Could it be, that age has something to do with it? The horror! Please tell me this is not so. Please?

I have been told by some of my co-workers, that once you hit the big FOUR-O, that everything begins to fall apart. However, they tell me that once it does, in a few years everything seems to come back. How can that be? I think maybe they just don’t remember how they were before the fall-out. I know. I know.. don’t make memory jokes. Ok. What was I saying??

Anyway, as the big FOUR-O approaches, this is what I ponder as my back aches (endlessy, I might add). I have made a vow to try and stay positive. There is a strong core down the road for me yet. Just let me put my glasses on so I can see it.
