This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Doctors, Dentists, colonoscopies...OH MY!

Decided on the name Tang for this abstract watercolor I am working on... have not decided if I am finished or not.

Our day started at 5 am this morning. Had to take my hubby to the hospital for his scheduled colonoscopy. We got to the hospital at 6 am and his doctor was a half hour late, so he went in at 7:30 am. By 8:30 am, we were on our way to breakfast, relieved he passed with flying colors!

The past two weeks we have been running a marathon of various doctor, dentist, vision checks, procedures, blood tests, all for our annual physicals. We figured getting it all done at once was a good plan... Glad to be at the end of it. I have a blood test to check my genetically high cholesterol tomorrow. I am allergic to most of the medications my doctor has tried to give me. We are now working with fish oil...

If we don't get good results, I'll have no choice but to exercise... such a fate! I met a women in computer class the other day. She needed help with organizing photos, so I offered to help. We discovered we live close to one another, so we may become walking buddies. She invited me to Country Line Dancing up at the Rec Center. I used to line dance, and I LOVED it. I need to get my hindquarters off the computer chair, and get moving with some fun exercises.

Really need to catch up on my sleep. Been averaging 4 to 6 hours of sleep per night, and I am one who needs 8. Since I am fasting tonight, I think it would be wise to call it a night and hit the sheets...

Looks like you get as much sleep as we do. 5 to 6 hours a night is really not enough for me. My brain does not function well with that little sleep. Glad to hear the test went well. Awww...exercise. It is just making myself do it that is so difficult. It really does make all the differnece in the wrold as to how I feel. Have not tried line dancing but wish I could learn that also.

Thanks for stopping by Brenda. I wish sitting at a computer or at my studio desk could magically count toward exercise...I'd rack up a lot more time than I do being outside walking or in a gym!

I got a sinus headache the first day of Line Dancing class. My friend called me to check on me, and informed me classes had been canceled for two weeks due to vacation for the instructor...so I will blog about it when I finish a class...

When I lived in CA, before I married my husband, I used to line dance all the time. Boy, was I in shape back in those days!
