I don't let his mobility affect mine. Although I have degenerative disc disease, osteopenia, fibromyalgia and other ailments I refuse to give in. I do what I want within my limits. That means he stays at home and I go do whatever. Forty-three years ago, I didn't think our eight year age difference would be an issue. Now he's 71 and I'm 63 I have tried to take care of myself and stay as active as possible. I do all the yard work and I have a small garden in the spring and summer. I do all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, household repairs and laundry. I also have hobbies such as crocheting, knitting, quilting, genealogy, and embroidery that keep me as busy as I want to be. I have always believed that keeping our minds and bodies active improves our quality and quantity of life.

@cindyt63 – I hear you. My husband and I have a 9 year age difference. In our 40's it hardly mattered. Now he is 77 with Mild Cognitive Impairment… with a likelihood of progression to Alzheimers or some other kind of dementia. I'm 68 and active, busy in the community, LOVE quiliting (you're a quilting sister!), and at the same time trying to make sure my husband eats, stays busy, visits with friends, blah blah blah.. I applaud you for not letting his mobility affect yours. You go girl!
