This AGE thing...really SUCKS!!!!

We are now experiencing our 4th day of Weather Bliss here in thee old NW. It has actually started getting a little uncomfortable for my taste. Upper 80's or so...

I run to GI Joes sporting Goods this morning to find a cover tent for the back deck, to relieve us all out in the sun while still enjoying it's warmth, but not with it feeling like Africa...I am pulling down a down a tarp thingy...which is only 40 lbs or so..but awkward in it's long box. It falls...almost on my foot, with a big bang. A sales guy walks by, down the isle...here's this is going on, but fails to stop and ask if I need help. So I struggle to the front with this friggin box, and pay for it.

I say to the young girl, whom probably was 20 or 21. "Hey, may I please have some help out with this tent, it's kindof heavy and probably hard getting it up into our truck...she continues to ring me up, I'm thinking are you gonna call anyone up to help me out, or maybe you didn't hear me. She finishes the transaction...her boss walks over and she say's "I'm gonna help this lady out to her car with this box. She proceeds to walk out the doors carrying it, and lifts it with ease into my car as if...as if it's mearly just a feather...

At that point I'm thinking what the heck has happened to me...I should have just walked this thing out myself, if she can do it...so can I. Standing there I felt like a frale little old woman, and really didn't want to come to grips with my age... I bet she was also out alll....nite, came into work with 2 hours of sleep, and able to go out tonite and do it all over again.... Unlike me whom was in bed by 10 completely exhausted. Really...this age thing completely SUCKS!!!!
