Sundays, are fundays, as my sister would say! They are for fun times like movies, and beaches and fishing and of course coming soon to all televisions, The NFL ad football.
I relax by watching football when I can, if my wife lets me of course. She hates football or any sports and gives me a hard time so had to buy a second tv just for the game sor movies I like and of course my video games I play.
My sundays, these days are spent filling up what we need and shopping for foof and items as needed. Then I may play some video games and do other things, chores are always first folks, tell your kids work first than play.
As I age, I feel pain more, physically, my shoulders, my neck and back get worse from my service related injuries and I am not able to go to doctors at the Veteran’s Hospital due to scheduling conflicts with my wife’s appointments regarding her cancer fight for life.
I try to make do as is and I suffer at times for it, but I am a man who has to live with pain, and I think all men put up with pain better and longer than women. That’s just my opinion folks, please don’t go saying I am sexist for it, because it’s not what I am meaning, ok.
I believe pain kills and it will kill me eventually unless I get it alleviated in someway, but time will tell. After 63 years of life, I have seen the world in my Naval Service and done my duty in the Army National Guard, so I have done my thing.
I had a few favorite things in life I did and some I still do. First and foremost was always fishing, in the great freshwater lakes of Connecticut. Yet, I grew away from it after many years and moved on. I like to read and then, there is my writings which I do from poetry, to blogs, to short stories I attempt to turn into books on Amazon.
When all else fails, and i tired of the above I get on an X-Box and play video games for fun and to pass the time. Yeah I know an old man playing video games seems funny and silly and a waste of time, but I enjoy them, so I do it.
I take care of my wife daily and our two cats, I clean the house as far as I can if I can. and I get the house fixed and the car and truck too if i can afford them. I am not rich and will never be I am sure, but we get by is all. I even try to win the PCH Lotto everyday, but I am not a winner at those things at all.
What do I see my older life like if I live it, well probably, living alone in a small apartment that is rent controlled somewhere. A small one bedroom and just enough comfort and furniture so I can relax and live my life out. Do I ask for much more than that, nope why because I am a realist if nothing else and know I have to accept what life offers me at this point.
I watch the news, I watch politics too and then television shows in the evening like all other people do too. All I ever ask for in life is simple a car that is decent to get to my doctors, and the stores, food I can eat and handle as a diabetic, a place to shower and brush my teeth and a bedroom to sleep with a comfortable mattress.
As to my dying here is what I think, I have survived 16 years military life, done my duty for uncle Sam, suffered my injuries and am still kicking. Yet, when I do die, I hope Uncle Sam will see to it I am, cremated and buried next to my wife and the American Flag is presented to my eldest daughter to remind her of me. I am a simple man, an honorable man and I do not want fancy, or expensive just a decent place to rest in piece, I hope, that I die in my sleep and never feel it too. God Bless, and Happy Sunday/ Fun day to ALL!
