I wonder if my knees will hold together long enough for me to stand upright.
My back hurts and feels "knotted" after I sleep in my "comfort" bed.......the couch seems to straighten this out.
So what if my face is dirty at bedtime..........I go to bed because I am tired , not because I am clean.
The term " spit bath", once an emergency situtation, is now , 'good enough"........anything more is 'primping'.
After a fair day's work, the family is now expected to be thankful for my leftover energy.........maybe it applies to the evening meal, to quality time, to paying the bills, to shopping for clothing................HEY, I came home, ......didn't I?
"want to's" are now taking second place to " have to's".
At 50, sometimes, I feel like 20 and ride my motorcylce with wild abandon just because it is a warm night or a full moon...............some days, I am just too tired to even watch TV with no thinking required. Who needs the noise?
Though, there are stories within me, waiting to be told........I am just too tired to pen them, so I answer questions instead.
What I am today, is not what I will be tomorrow. Some days, I feel old and tired and on other days, I am young and vital.
No one wants to feel old and tired, yet the young are eager to claim tiredness.
Let us all be just what we are.
