I hope everyone that celebrates Christmas is getting excited. I know some of my friends got snow this weekend and that’s always fun. I spent Sunday evening wrapping gifts and doing a little more decorating on the house. I almost felt like baking Christmas cookies but I managed to hold off – barely!
I’m still feeling pretty good these days. Monday afternoon I had to go back to the doctor for my blood pressure check, all is well in that area. But they needed to take some blood for a test to see if the medicine is doing any damage to my kidneys. First they stuck my left arm, evident there is no blood in that one. Stuck my right arm, got some blood there. Then back to my left arm for my H1N1 vaccine. Hey, I'm no pin cushion, there in only one part of me I want sore and it ain't my arms!
Thursday I’m going for a bone density test. I haven’t had one before but I know the test is nothing. Hope the exercise for the last three years has done a little to help my bones. We’ll see. Mollie is going with me and after the test I hope to finish up my Christmas shopping.
Good news, I've lost 2 pounds since last week. That’s about what I gained over Thanksgiving so as long as I got most of that off I can’t complain. Maintaining during December is about all I can hope for. This is the next to the last week for the challenge at my gym. I’ve done the 8 required classes and hopefully this week will have all my hours in. I haven’t lost a ton but I know this challenge has been what has helped me maintain so I’m glad I did it.
Now the bad news - I can't write. I have 3, count 'em 3, Fantasy Friday stories in my head. That other dear lady who whispers her stories in my head is very active. What have I actually put on paper (screen, whatever) - nothing!! I can't even seem to answer emails as I normally would. Stories race around in my head as I lay down at night, when I shower the next morning, when I'm working out at the gym, I come home - I want to write, I'm ready. Then I sit down and stare at the keyboard - nothing. It would be bad enough if I didn't have any ideas but to have ideas and just not to get anything started, grrrrrrrr... I don't know what to do. Oh well they are still in my head, maybe sometime.
