I Can’t Do This Without an Arm

Although I was having an amazing time on my trip I decided to unfortunately come home a day early. You see I am getting old, stuff is starting to fall apart, and here is when I go on an old persons rant. I injured my arm last October and it STILL acts up when I take it out to play, which is often, because I need my arm OFTEN. So I was on my trip of course taking pictures all the time and my arm started hurting again. I tried ignoring it but like that old person that catches you on the bus and starts rambling away about how her 12 cats eat her out of house and home, my arm would not shut up.

I want to know what happened to those carefree days when I was invincible, when I would never go home from doing something I loved because my ARM HURT. I feel really old.

Anyways I did the responsible thing and came home before the arm hurting turned into reinjuring it again which would totally suck. Getting home early I was at least excited about a few things. A nice comfy bed for one, running water, a shower and a toilet within walking distance that I did not have to get fully clothed to use; it’s the little things in life that make us the happiest sometimes.

And then the Rambo’s, my wonderful neighbours, took me out for an Outback dinner and a movie. We had such a great time and I relished being with PEOPLE again. That outing and the glorious sleep I got in my bed that night made me feel not so bad about my decision to come home early from my trip.

You with the arm, ahem are NOT old!! LOL Maybe what you need is a good physical therapist who can help you regain your strength. USE IT OR LOSE IT, that's my motto. And If I'm not old, neither is my daughter... Look at us, we're rock climbing, kayaking, and hiking all over this great land of ours.
