You don't look that old!A funny thing happens when you have a birthday. (Especially when it is your 77th birthday.) People start saying things like "you don't look that old" or "don't worry, you have a lot of years ahead of you". I never think about it much but that kind of "compliment" can really get you depressed.
We are working at "down-sizing" which really means, the house is to big and our knees can't take the stairs anymore. I had forgotten how hard it was getting all that furniture, rugs, lamps, clothes, luggage, etc. up the stairs. I will always remember how hard it was to get that stuff down the stairs. Going up was like youth, the strength of me, the athlete, the beast, and three strong boys to help. Coming down is like age, slow, one step at a time, take time to breath, don't forget the sweat rag, sore muscles, ice, nap.
