I am too old

I hate it when people use age as an excuse to "not" be able to do things.  I have seen some amazing things done by people considered too old.  We have a 70+ year old woman in our Ward that recently lost her husband.  She was a primary care giver as he had suffered a stroke a few years back.  Within the last year she has had both knees replace and is back to clogging.   She is an inspiration to me.

So in the back of my mind as I drink my diet coke and eat my pie pizza loaded with cheese and pepperoni, I am thinking I need to make sure I keep myself healthy enough so that if I wanted to climb Mt Olympus or go kayaking on the ocean at 70+ years of age I can.

So what has prompted this little tirade.  I went to bed last night at a decent hour, between 10:30 and 11:00, and was wide awake.  Oliver has developed a serious over development of saliva issue that we are currently attempting to work through without having to pay the vet, so I was trying to steer clear of the puddles and making sure there were towels under his cute little head.  I opted to read myself to sleep.

This usually works as I find myself bonked in the head with my book as I drift off to sleep.  Last night was exactly the opposite.  I stimulated those little gray cells with a new book I had picked up from the libraryand finished my 300 page book at 3:30 a.m.  Lights went out and 3:45 a.m. with a hope that I would quickly fall asleep and 2.5 hours would be enough to get me through the next day.

I now sit here with my 2nd 44oz caffeinated beverage within the last 4 hours attempting to keep my head off my keyboard.  Saying to myself......I am to old for this.   Sleep in essential for my proper functions.

Now you have read my ramblings here is a b-day card I made for a BFF.
The products used are from Stampin UP, Papertrey Ink and the die for the card is an accordion circle card die sold through  Karen Burniston designed them.  So cute I had to get my hands on them

I hope everyone's Friday was productive and fun
Ta Ta for now.
