On old age and failing eyesight

Posting has been light, or should I say nonexistent, today for a number of reasons. For one thing I hit the magic double number yesterday, and yikes -- I'm suddenly eligible for the senior citizen discount. I suppose I'll have to start wearing support hose and going to early bird dinners and taking bus trips to the casino with the other old folks....

Okay, I am kidding about that but I can't deny the old eyesight is failing me on a regular basis. I notice when I'm blogging on the laptop, even when I increase the font size, I make a lot of typos in my posts that I don't catch until I get home and reread them on the big monitor with my desktop computer. I even skip whole phrases sometimes. That's partly a function of posting on the fly since I mostly use the laptop at work and I'm stealing a moment here and there to put something up, but even though I don't really feel old and decrepit, there's no denying the old eyesight is getting worse and my multi-tasking skills are diminishing.

Still, as one of my exes reminded me yesterday -- every morning that you wake up and everything is still more or less working, life is good.

Thanks MW. I can't believe you're even close to that. I always thought of you as much younger. But then again, I think of everyone as much younger...

I'll be 48 later this year...but I'm young for my least, that's what I keep telling myself. It gets me through the day.
