You Know You're Old When...

after spending about 7 hours on Saturday recovering 3 dining room chairs I feel like I've been in a car accident. Between leaning over a table loosening and tightening screws, removing about 6o staples per chair, and stapling 60 more with a staple gun every part of my body is sore from my lower back up to my neck; even my fingers hurt. What? When did this happen? I planned on completing the other three chairs today, but instead I rolled out of bed, took two aspirin every 4 hours, and whined about my achy body for the rest of the day. I'm going to have to give myself a few days off before I finish that project. Who knew that such a simple project would be so difficult.

I'm too young to feel this old! Or is it I feel to young to be this old? Today I feel old, that's for sure.


  1. Oh, come on, young people get backaches, too. Or so I hear. Sigh.

  2. I have learned to take ibuprofen BEFORE I start projects like gardening or chair re-covering. It really works.

    Do we get to see photos of the chairs?

  3. Hey, reapolstering chairs is serious work! Especially if you do a good job, which I'm sure you have. So your aches and pains are warranted.

    You won't be old until you're my age.

  4. Yeah, you're old, join the club

  5. It sounds awesome! I can't wait to see the chairs. You are innovative!
