I made it from 1304 back to 1200 today. During Math time. Mom was here to help with the little schoolies. We had soup for lunch. Like you needed to know that.
Sorry for the randomness of this post, but I’m feeling distressed by an overwhelming number of things I really need to be doing right now… and I’m not. I’m stuck on this blog party like white on rice, baby. This stuff really isn’t good for your health. Blogging, I mean.
I know this. You wanna know how? I went to the doctor yesterday. They told me I needed to take medicine for GERD. Great. There went those enchiladas, and the rest of the hot and spicy foods I love the most. I heart jalapeños. The doctor said that a “sedentary lifestyle” (ie: butt in chair) is not good for your digestive tract. Age doesn’t help, either – nor does gaining some weight (which is brought on by age and slowing metabolism… vicious cycle!). Another culprit besides blogging, of course – would be GREASY FOODS. WHAT??? You mean that I can’t eat at McDonald’s once a week and stay healthy? I thought that if they have salads on their menu, they were “new and improved”??? Too bad I usually order the BIG AND TASTY. I don’t care what you think about it… I do think it is tasty. I guess our weekly trips for fast food on the nights we are out and about will have to come to a grinding halt. Better to give that up than blogging. Stinks to be forced in to dietary changes. Now I know what my poor friend Amy feels like who discovered this year that she has a deathly allergy to gluten. I’m feelin’ her pain. But at least it wasn’t my heart (as I had suspected).
I really don’t want to take medicine so I can eat… and not get cancer of the throat. But alas… for now, I’m going to take the pills and try to make some lifestyle changes. One of those requires REAL exercise. I guess Green Hour will have to be daily, and blog time will have to be – well – TIMEd.
Timing your computer fun is ok, I guess… as long as there’s not a blog party going on. Because that is too difficult to resist. Like chocolate chip cookies or Michael Kors cologne when you have a “Ben Frankie” to spare in your wallet (which is rare in my case). You get the picture.
AND… my blogging time is up today. Already. I haven’t even chosen what prizes I want. I guess I’ll have to forgo the visiting tomorrow and get to the business of party favors so I don’t get left behind. But seriously… I think maybe next year the twins should consider making this party last about a month or so… or maybe just having the visiting time last a week longer before prizes are given out? What do you think?
Better get back to real life. Before I don’t have one anymore!
