This evening, Mrs. AOW and I plan to go to her cousin's house to celebrate Christmas with food and gifts. And beer and wine, too. I hope that it doesn't snow because getting me out and about in the snow is impossible.
It's hard on Mrs. AOW to drive all that way to her cousins' house and to get me into the house in my transport chair. But once there, Mrs. AOW's cousins do most of the work.
Except when I have to visit the head! Why are bathroom doors so narrow and toilets so low to the ground? We old geezers need grab bars, too!
We'd have a merrier Christmas if we didn't have such a struggle with my disabilities.
But it's Christmas, and we do the best that we can. I don't grieve over what I don't have. Instead, I'm happy that I'm as healthy as I am.
I am in much better shape than I was in 2009. Much less of a burden! I plan to get even better by the time Christmas rolls around again.
