Feeling My Age

My hands hurt.

I worked a bit last night and finally put an ice pack between my hands while I watched some sitcoms late at night. It was annoying and a little painful, but they felt a little better when I went to bed.

But this morning they seem worse, just sore and hurting when I pressure them, like opening the sugar jar (it has a tension fitting on it). It's annoying and it bugs me throughout the day with little things. Luckily typing isn't one of them.

I know it's because I'm getting older and I worked them too hard on Sunday. It was trauma to them trying to dig holes in the ground for the fence posts by hand with the post hole digger. Too much banging into the clay to get the holes deep enough because I didn't want to spend 20 minutes switching out the bush hog for the auger on the tractor. They were tired when I finished and I had trouble grabbing things.

Hard to remember that I can't go as hard as I could 20 years ago.
