end of a long day

You end up as you deserve. In old age you must put up with the face, the friends, the health, and the children you have earned.Judith Viorst

the many challenges of marriage and the family sometimes made me feel as if my only two choices were homicide – or humour. I chose humour.
Good choice, Judith — although, at the moment, I’m feelig more homicidal.
Mom and our furniture get moved on Monday.
Tomorrow I and a good friend of mine (who is on vacation but offered to give me a day of her time to help with the move) are loading up both of our cars and driving down to the new digs to unload some stuff and finish painting my piece of the place.
I must have done something right to have a friend like her.
The same goes for my children, my health, and my face.
I can live with that, although I do wish I had a better hold on that humour!
