It is the beginning of a new week.
I have Aaron and Bailey.
We have had breakfast, polished Bailey’s nails and now are watching Trolls.
I have a tenant/resident at work who is turning 102 today!
How exciting is that?
In the last eleven months since I have met her she is getting a little forgetful and has a hard time controlling her bladder but for the most part she is very alert and doing well.
Yes she has aches and pains and has a hard time walking, although she does still walk, but she is doing well for the most part.
I think she is tired, and sleeps a lot and probably is ready to call it a life but of course we don’t get to pick and choose when we go.
I asked her last night when I was getting her ready for bed ( she needs help dressing and undressing) “So now that you are almost 102 what is your secret to a long life?”
She said “So many people have asked me that”
And then she said “Well I tried to eat well and I never smoked or drank”
I said “You have never ever had a drink?”
And she said “Of course at special occasions but not daily or even weekly”
So there you have it folks…..eat well and don’t smoke and drink.
