- Dr. M & I are going to see the Dead Sea Scrolls tomorrow – and I’m checking another thing off of my 50x50 list (you thought I’d forgotten all about that didn’t you?). I’ll have a review of how I’m doing sometime next week.
- So far I’ve had to do two Junior Warden type things: purchase trash bags & tin foil, and get Dr. M to replace a hasp & lock on a door. So I think I’ve got this gig down pat now.
-My doctor is concerned about my kidney function and has forbidden me to take any more NSAIDs. She’s right to be concerned - I’ve been taking ibuprofen pretty regularly for around seven years now (since my hip arthritis diagnosis). So I’m going to try some other things – including not taking anything at all. I might finally give up diet soda since aspartame has been linked to joint pain. During this process I’m going to try Very Diligently to not whine. (But I’d like to note for the record, that it’s now spring allergy season & I have a sinus headache. Ha!).
-I’m realizing just how much I don’t like it when I don’t get my own way. I was practically in tears in the doctor’s office (prompting her to prescribe something that I probably won’t be taking). As I was driving home I gave myself a stern talking to. “Suck it up Ms. Bug! You just need to roll with the punches & quit being such a wuss!”
-I am empty of poetry. I just don’t see the world that way anymore. For now anyway. Kind of makes me sad. Although maybe now I’ll write somber verses about pain. Something for you to look forward to!
-The Braves & Reds have both won two of their first three games, which is a good thing since my NCAA bracket is totally busted. I have one team left (Louisville). All my other picks bit the dust. Next year I’m going to make my choices based on team colors & mascots. Ha!
|Here's a likely candidate - the Wichita State Shockers. And they're in the Final Four this year! According to this site, Wichita State got its name due to its early days, when students earned money by shocking, or harvesting in wheat fields near the university. I think they're my new favorite!|
