I had a checkup today.
Good news: blood pressure is significantly lower than when I saw the doctor four years ago.
Bad news: She says I still have to lose weight. What does she want from me??? I just can't please my physician!
At least I didn't cry this time. People who know me know that I have a very sensitive and fickle waterworks trigger. But I kept it under control this time and I didn't smear my light slathering of eye makeup on the hideous hospital gown. And I didn't relieve them of the every last tissue in the room to blow a drippy nose.
The doctor asked me if I had tried a gym membership. I told her that I had but I gained weight over the year that I was a member and then quit. I said I could jolly well gain weight at home without having to pay for it. She chuckled.
All is quiet on the kid front. No concerts, no athletic events, no ceremonies to attend. I feel at a loss for blogging material because of the lack of children's activities. And the Great Room Switch is done. I could blog about the inauguration, but I'm not watching it. I should actually turn in on though. I really should pay more attention to political events like this. Jim did record some stuff yesterday, but mostly because U2 were playing. He likes watching events like these because the music is pretty good.
