I woke up this morning achey in both mind and body. I stayed too long abed. And yes, I talk like that in real life. I spent far too much of my youth in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.
Whingeing, Whining, Kvetching are not exactly synonymous, tho whinging and kvetching are closest to each other. I actually googled it. Perhaps whining is just the sound of whingeing and kvetching.
I suppose I could attribute my achey mind to my achey body – and that would be a good attribution. When tying your shoes becomes an onerous task and you start to think “I can’t do this anymore, life is too hard” ; well you can see the connection.
I would really like to whinge and kvetch – out loud, and loudly. Doing it silently in my head is just going to make matters worse BUT…
The basic, underlying problem is something I have been beating you and myself with for ten years now. There was a possibility to alleviate the problem 6 years ago but I got tired fighting for it and so I just gave in and gave up. I could still do it now but the cost would be too high, and I mean that literally.
(Speaking of costs – why are grapes $3.99 a pound? Am I living in some sort of fantasy land thinking that is way too much?)
I could do the upside/downside thing – but I’m just not in the mood to look at the upside (other than the fact that I no longer live in Philadelphia. Aw, geeze, those had to be the four most horrible years of my life, and trust me, I have had some truly, by anyone’s standards, horrible years.)
One problem I can afford to fix (and I am thankful that I can afford to fix it) is to get a new mattress. Having just spent $3000 on new computer equipment I can afford to spend $1300 for a new mattress.
So off I go to fix at least one of my problems. Can I get a pat on the back for that at least?
