Too true. It just takes SO much longer to do the adapting thing than it used to. As for the aches and pains, got ‘em already. That’s another super frustrating part that’s been creeping up. I’m so used to doing whatever I want. Now it takes several minutes to just get moving, nevermind the stairs. It’s like my ankles forgot how to bend. A little scary to be honest, handrails! Maybe it’s time for a dr appt, but I just don’t wanna go, especially now. I know a good bit of it is my mdd, major depressive disorder 🙄🙄🙄, but it’s still annoying as all get out.
You can adapt and keep going. I wouldn't want to visit a Dr's office now if we didn't have to. Part of what we do around here is support one another through difficult times. We're here for you too. :hugs :hugs
Glad to hear Sue is doing so much better! @Grammy60 I so hope that you return to pain free days again very soon :hugs
Thanks CSA. The folks out here were a tremendous support structure. I can honestly say that this event was more terrifying than combat.

O.M.G.! :gig :lau
I just realized you and Sue are together! I thought the dogs in your avatars looked similar but just chalked it up to a similar taste in adorable dogs. I never even noticed your locations either.
I hit forty last dec. and everything has been just blah. It’s like I actually gave up. I seem to have to work twice as hard to get the same results, no matter what it is.
Wait until you hit 60!

Not to complain cause I'm sure Sue's are worse but I had a headache all day yesterday and its trying to creep back up on me.
Wormed everyone Thursday night and found a tumor in the mouth of a hen. She had yellow stuff in her mouth and I thought maybe an infection but just trying to look at it it split and bled like crazy. She doesn't seem to notice it. So I'll keep an eye on her.
Got the little sebrights this morning. View attachment 2349212
They seem good. Hopefully everyone behaves themselves and gets along.
I'm going to nap again.
Hopefully whatever it is, it heals & she's ok. Beautiful girls though! Ash was a sebright & she was always a really good bird.

With hubs help Bitty's house and run are both roofed. Tomorrow I will do what I can with rain pending.

I have very little lumber at this point. In order to give the biggest run possible it was built off the front of the coop. That made the best use of the 2 pieces of metal roofing I bought. The run ended up 5'3" wide and about 9' long. Of course with the house on a stand I will let them have access under it too.
