I color my hair. Mainly do root touch up. I tried on a grey wig and looked like Martha Washington.

Roz, never ever colored my hair....it grew to fast to keep up with coloring it and never afforded anyway. I did years ago spray something on my hair that was to lighten hair when in the sun. My cousin that cut my hair told me I was ruining my hair....SUN IN was the name of the spray. Gray hair now but no intentions of doing anything with it. I earned everyone of those gray hairs

I laugh when females in their 30s and 40s have some of our issues. I think just wait it gets worse.

Backing out of drive the beeper alarm for backing up failed to work and he hit his motorcycle...did not damage bike but an estimated $800 to fix ding in car...so now wifey mad at him...returned home from work and tried to retrace his steps at house to find keys and had no luck so he just crawled into bed......and I may need him to help take care of me as I get older...YIKES!! I need to slow up or he needs to speed up emoticon

I have called my three sons by all their names before I got the right one. The other night I did that to my granddaughters and my son told them that that was what I had done when they were little. I still do it sometimes...

Thelma,

Wow! What goes around comes around. I was last child. My mom called me two names before remembering mine. My dad called me three names. My siblings and deceased mother before he remembered mine. My mom never said a word about incontinence. I discovered she had it when she went for bladder surgery.

My mom was always misplacing things. She would come home from shopping panicked that she lost her wallet, money, keys, etc. I had her recount where she went; what she did and go thru her pockets,etc. I always found what she thought she lost. My sister (80) did the same thing when I visited her. I told her it was like being with Mom again.

I use a walking stick or cane when I walk because of a bad knee. I have to pace myself during the day when doing my work. I take a few more breaks than I use to. I get up more in the night to visit the bathroom. I shower and don't take baths.
Keep your sense of humor, it helps so much! emoticon

My legs were better tonight. I was able to walk for 30 minutes without assistance device. Owner won't let us leave anything downstairs or outside. She has fit if I put wet swim shoes outside my door for a few hours. I put plastic pail outside my door to dry. She took it and put in laundry room without telling me.

Tee, can you leave the walker at the bottom of the stairs? One of my friends has a walker upstairs at her home like mine and a nicer one downstairs that she goes out with. You might consider chaining it to something like people do a bicycle.

I came across an empty shopping cart while walking and used for short time. Walking was easier and leg lifting better walking on broken, uneven sidewalks. I probably need a walker but refuse to use since impossible to carry down/up 20+ steps.
