Still here, but doing some movin’ and shakin’


In other words, I am doing last minute stuff! Brian has some vacation days, so he took off Wednesday through next week (no quiet time for you-know-who)! He went to the doctor with me, but I made him stay in the waiting room. My blood pressure was what I was getting at home, so it’s creeping closer to the normal mark, but I still have to pop a pill a day. And he said my thyroid was a bit sluggish, but it felt fine. In March I will get more bloodwork to check that. In the meantime, I will do my exercises, take my kelp (for iodine) and watch what I eat. I never had issues with anything until I hit this age. If you wonder about your thyroid, I was reading in a book I bought at Big*Lots last night. It’s by Robin McGraw, Dr.*Phil’s wife and it’s called ‘What’s Age got to do with it?’ If you are my age, take your temperature under your arm before rising every day for 4 days (young woman have to do it on ‘certain’ days). If it’s a degree under normal (98.6), you probably have a sluggish thyroid.
Brian and I had fun shopping at the above store and Peebles. Got some great buys on little last minute gifts by Sarah*Payton home decor items. I may sneak out and get a couple of more.
So Brian and I were discussing my van and I think we are going to donate it charity (they take them even if they aren’t running), but mine had a few issues and we don’t want to spend the money to repair it. It’s been ‘almost’ a lemon for the almost 12 years we owned it. We had to get a new transmission when we first bought it, it had a funny noise near the tire area, etc. We will get a newer car for Brian and I will use his Taurus (that has issues) for 6 months or so and replace that. Cars are pains in the butt! I am sick of not having a car to jump in! Wish us luck as the ball will probably get rolling on this in the new year.

  1. I hope you find some reliable transportation soon. It is so hard to get by with one vehicle when you are used to 2.

    What a great giveaway — MS cookbook! I don’t comment on giveaways because I never do one, so I don’t feel that I should win. Darn! I would probably really like that cookbook! šŸ™‚

    Are you all set for Christmas? I still need to wrap a few gifts and do my baking for the family gatherings.

  2. Did I miss a post of your tree? I just tried to click on the one on the left column, but I could not see it — I guess because I am not on Facebook. Darn!
