Aging Sucks

As I type this, I cannot clearly see the screen. I recently went to my eye doctor and should soon have new glasses, which presumably will address this problem. But I am also having issues with hearing, walking -- and nosebleeds.

I am up early this morning due to a nosebleed. I stopped it, using the methods taught me by an ER doctor, eight years ago. I also remember what my primary care doctor told me -- "better outside than inside" -- he was referring to a stroke.

I am 70, going on 71. I live alone.

This afternoon, my son Aidan called. He is doing a paper for college about a family food tradition and he chose shortbread -- my family's tradition. This melted my heart.

Super Bowl Party

Sarah and her boys and Peter and Claire came by  and enjoyed watching this very exciting game together.

I usually do not get into pro football games too mch but this one was special.
