This & That Including What Ails

Pushing Limits

on January 30, 2015

On days like these, I feel like an 80 year old as my spine is screaming….squirt me some WD40 or lubricant as the darn joints with screws are tightening up!

Whilst I know the saying, “mind is willing, body is weak” – I epitomise it.

I have an energetic mind. It works ceaselessly and I think I can, therefore I do it.

But in truth, I cannot!! Ugh!

I cannot heave ho a trolley of groceries, much less load into my car’s trunk, soap powders of 5 kg packs, or say a carton of anything.

The last 3 days have kept me busy with job lords and the rushing about have made me extremely tired.

I know and empathise how my aged mum feels going on her own to lug groceries, standing over kitchen sink to clean fish, chop or mince pork by hand using the knife.

Thankfully I am working most times and not a housewife, else I would be bitter being unable to take care of my family.

I see able people especially young adults with maids, heavily reliant on hired help and treating them as slaves.

I am fiercely independent. Like my mum ha ha…we can use part time help but not live in help.

But on days, I wished I could have a ready cooked meal, laundry done or groceries shopped and nicely put away!

Ha! If I had a chaueffeur, a butler like Jeeves…now that would be peachy!!

Otherwise, Frankenstein would suffice with “yessss Master” ha ha now where’s my darn gargoyle to take Garfield out for a walk!

Yes…body is weak but the mind can be having a field day in the land of make believe 😉

    Aw sorry to hear you are having “whiplash” to your gallivanting job hunting. Take your days off to recoup your strength and rest as much as poss – time to catch up on the soapies!
    I understand the “mind is willing but the body is not”. Do what you can, and then recover 🙂 Take Care 🙂
