Day 230: This 'n' That

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Today has been semi-busy: as Faithful Readers know, Thursdays are one of the grocery days at the Coff household, so first thing this morning the routine is menus - grocery list - shopping. By the time we were finished and back home, it was lunchtime, but this afternoon has been quieter.

I called my aunt this afternoon and gabbed for an hour - she is a real ray of sunshine for me, and my day was surely brightened. I have some more things I've found in my research (including a copy of a letter that was published in their local paper in 1944 - it was a letter my father wrote to their parents, about his trip from the US to the Pacific - he was a new enlistee at the end of WWII) that I'm sending off to her tomorrow.

Other than that, there are several things hanging fire - I forgot to call and schedule the eye exam that's due. I need to pay the rental bill on the storage unit I still - still! - have in PA. Which has gone up another $10 / month. I need to get over there and clean it out and be done with it, but I dunno when THAT's gonna happen.

I've felt somewhat scatterbrained today, but I think it's down to the impending treadmill stress-test at the cardio clinic. That's tomorrow morning, and I'm rather dreading it, as I don't think I'll be able to manage it. I'm not (yet) worried about the rest results so much as about my ability.

Well, one thing at a time, eh? I think I'll be like Scarlett: "I won't think about that now. I'll think about that tomorrow."

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    Hope your treadmill test goes well. I also hope the results of the test are not scary. Hugs

    They have a T.V. show here called Storage Wars or something like that where these two guys go and bid on storage units and then sell the stuff they get. If you stop paying the rent your storage unit could be on the show someday and you wouldn't have to make a trip to clean it out!

    I'm doctoring tomorrow, too. In my case the expected "annual"... been making a list of stuff to remember to mention. We'll see if he smiles as broadly over the weight as he did a year ago! Good luck with yours.

    Maybe the treadmill test will surprise you and you will be able to achieve it.....
    Sometimes things we dread are not as bad as we think....

    If it gets too much on you---tell them and get off---what are they going to do if you can't do it anyhow? And I really don't like the thought of radioactive stuff being in our bodies when they tell us how bad that stuff is for us---duh---then why is it put in us? Went to Ocean City today and ate a french fry or 2 for you---and some caramel popcorn---so don't forget to add them into your calorie count so I don't have to---heehee
