Can't Do What I Used To Do

 I was trying to move a small pile of rotting lumber yesterday and I fell. The bad part was I couldn't get up until I crawled to something to grab a hold of to pull myself up. Since I had my knee surgery I have trouble getting off the floor or the ground. I was so embarrassed, but nobody saw me.I keep thinking I can do everything I used to do, but the simple fact is I can not!

I am sore today and really can tell I over did it yesterday. Today I had to pay bills and grocery shop. I really proud of myself because I fixed the broken flapper on the toilet. Yes I am not totally helpless. It was really easy and cheap to fix. Yeah! I need to paint the back porch, but that another day. Not today anyway. :)

I about fell over with shock when I filled my gas tank. Wow the price just keeps going up. My grocery bill was also higher today. Seems the only break I got was the gas bill went down. I know next month the electric will go up because it is getting hot enough to use the air conditioner. I guess I have vented enough. so I close with saying things could always be worst and I am thankful for all the things that I have.

I have a harder time getting up from a kneeling or crouching position or if I sit down on the floor. At least my hip wasn't screaming at me today. I shudder for the day when I have to have it replaced because I know it's going to happen. It's only a matter of time.

Its hard realizing we cant do the things we have always taken for granted. Everything here is getting more and more expensive too, I think its happening all over. I dont know how it will all end.

That's no fun that nobody saw it. Be careful please, such things are avoidable.
