First of all, I want to wish a fantastic birthday to ruralstar
. I hope your day has been supremely wonderful!
For the rest of the folks on my f-list, I want to wish you a Happy Easter!
I hate it when I go ages without posting because then I feel like I need to talk about everything which seems overwhelming and too much like work and who cares, right? So, I thought I'd break it down into bits.Work:
Is going swimmingly. I love it more than I thought I would and I haven't killed anyone. (Yeah, my daily prayer for many, many years has been, Please don't let me kill anyone. That hasn't changed and is probably responsible for my work OCD and need to triple check everything).Health:
Is going fantastic. I'm getting older, which means that conversations will now begin to incorporate health cares and concerns. I have been awesome about regular exercise and trying to eat healthy. I participated in a community health fair which was so much fun. After we had drawn lipid panels on scads of folks (who all hit the line really early because, you know, fasting) we were able to go to the different booths ourselves. My lipid panel was pretty great, I learned that I am not getting hard of hearing after all, and I now have positive proof that I do, indeed, have large bones. My T-score was 1.5! (Acceptable is negative 1 and above. Awesome!
Actual weight loss, however, is as difficult and slow as ever.
Brandon and the ADD experiment is underway as well. He texted me from work telling me that he could already tell a difference. We'll see. But, yowza, that stuff is expensive, even with a co-pay.
Not so good on the exasperating teenager front is Brandon having a little episode of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. (Boys are pretty much idiots). There will be consequences. However, there is good news in that I have confirmation that he tells me the truth about things. Travel:
Whoop! 82 days till vacation and my trip to Halifax/PEI! (I can always count on scarym1
to keep a countdown for me!)Teevee:
Okay, it is easy to avoid spoilers when you happen upon a new obsession. Why did it take me so long to watch Supernatural
!?! It basically has ALL, and I do mean all
, of my bulletproof kinks!! I've already begun to ponder DVD purchase. This week, I took note of some laugh out loud lines, most of which came from Castiel and his delivery of said lines:
"A cupid's gone rogue."
"I think we can rule out Moses as a suspect."
"My people skills are rusty! Pardon me, but I've spent the last year as a multi-dimensional wavelength of celestial intent."
And this one from Bobby:
"They're not like the Loch Ness monster, Dean. Dragons aren't real."
