Sorry for the negative posts.

Thanks Wolf, yeah it is getting done. Sorry you have those insufferable migraines.

Mags yeah it can suck. That's the great thing about it. If we know when it sucks, that's because we've experienced the times life didn't suck, maybe even is glorious, or at least satisfying.

Yes we are seeing more Alzheimer's lately. I think it is because we are seeing a lot more decades of life lately:

Excerpt:
"The dramatic increase in average life expectancy during the 20th century ranks as one of society’s greatest achievements. Although most babies born in 1900 did not live past age 50, life expectancy at birth now exceeds 83 years in Japan—the current leader—and is at least 81 years in several other countries. Less developed regions of the world have experienced a steady increase in life expectancy since World War II, although not all regions have shared in these improvements. (One notable exception is the fall in life expectancy in many parts of Africa because of deaths caused by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.) The most dramatic and rapid gains have occurred in East Asia, where life expectancy at birth increased from less than 45 years in 1950 to more than 74 years today."
That from the US National Institute on aging here: https://www.nia.nih.gov/research/pub.../living-longer

The time to worry about quality of life is while we have it. After it is gone, it is too late. I am having a major period of stress right now in moving, dealing with deaths in the family, many contractors, and today my SH's tablet died from some updates last night. Dell is sending a box and we lose all of the data as they will refurbish the system under warranty. Then I have to do all those updates again. I feel like I've been kicked in the stomach. I think it is great that I know this too shall pass. So what if I feel like I am depressed and raging at the same time feeling a bit helpless. I am sober and will stay so. I think I'll take a nap. I have everything but still get knocked back on my heels by life sometimes. <sigh> It ain't what we have or don't. If alcohol were the answer, we asked the wrong question. The answer is . . . 42.

Itchy, sorry you're having a rough go of it at the moment. You've been working very hard and have been dealing so well with a variety of setbacks. We all have our "not so hot" spells and I gather this is one for you. You will get past this, too.

Thanks guys. Doing better tonight. I spent 50 minutes being shuffled around Microsoft support on the phone. And the same with the gas company until I ran into an actual lady who gave a damn about her customer. So I get gas tomorrow ( The good kind) and we can move on. Still lots of details to be fixed but it is getting manageable. Now with acceptance on inspection we have to go through closing.

Dee,
Amen. Soooo true.

Sassy,
How'd your trip go? Good flight?

Wolf, thanks. I know what you mean about chargers. I have done more manual labor than in years.

Morning overs

You wasn't being negative, itchy, I wasn't trying to be either. We'd just been speaking about hubby's uncle then I read your post, a lot on TV about it too, and a guy at works wife has moved to work in dementia ward. That's a good thing! You've had a lot on your plate and it seems a big plate already!

Pleased your feeling better.

It is a bonus, we are living longer and hopefully, we get there with not too many aches and pains!

We have the doldrums here, where the mornings and evenings are drawing in, we haven't had much summer and looking towards a long winter! But, they pass.

And to cheer us up I'm gonna do a dance and this pretty much looks like me dancing, sober! Hahaa. Have a good Thursday.

A quick good morning, Overs!

I had as good a sardine-can flight as can be expected. These days I think we need to be contortionists to fit . The next step? They'll put us in boxes in suspended animation and really load up the plane with no elbow room at all. Ah well, I only do this once a year!

Back home later today.
