You Know Are Getting Old When...

On Thursday, I thought, "Hey, I'll do some laundry. Won't the wife be pleased with that!". I tossed the load in and came back an hour later. I reached in to throw the clothes in the dryer, when TWEAK, just a little bit in the lower back. Oh no! This has happened before and wasn't good. Didn't get much worse over the rest of the day. Friday was okay in the morning, but by mid-afternoon I was practically an invalid. This morning feels a bit better, but still not right. Frustrating because of all of the progress I've been making and it's all the washing machine's fault!!

I know they say it's all downhill after 30, but geez, I didn't think I be rendered virtually useless from the intense stress of doing a load of laundry. I know I'm out of shape, but didn't think I was that bad off. I'm done complaining now.

OFGR..."it's not all downhill after 30, it's not all downhill after 30, it's not all downhill after 30"...I go through this chant on a weekly basis, especially when some 15 year old who is half the size of one of my legs flies by me in a race. Pulling a muscle in your back doing basic chores is, unfortunately, a reality of our age. It sometimes has nothing to do with being out of shape. Last year, my dog pulled me unexpectedly while we were at Petsmart. My body went with her, my left knee did not. I was in a soft cast for a month. Sometimes it's just the wrong place, wrong time. I hope you're feeling better!
