What a life...

It's been a long time since I last posted something here. I think my medications may have something to do with my lack of ambition. Nothing can be done about that for now. I went to the doctor today...actually, he is a PA-C and more thorough and caring than most doctors I've met. Anyway, I am fine except for a rise in bad cholesterol and CO2 in my blood gases. I also told him about my suspected cataracts and I will be seeing someone for that pretty soon. I hope it's soon as these fuzzy images and tears are a bother.

And so I age...I am going to the gym three times a week for a Senior Wellness program and it's rigorous enough to keep my blood pressure in a safe range. After the exercise on the treadmill and other instruments of torture, I spend an hour in the pool doing water exercises to ease the pain in my hip and leg.

I'm not completely without ambition; I am painting and last week I took 30+ painting down to a local health club for a solo art show. And I just heard that I sold one...the most expensive one at $150. It's also one of our favorites and it had a special place on the wall of our home. Now I have to come up with a replacement. My mind is already churning away at the possibilities...



  1. Glad to hear from you and good going on the painting ;)

  2. Welcome back. I'm having the same trouble. I don't know if the B
    P meds keep me too drowsy to post anything but pablum on my blog or if it's the onset of dementia, but I don't seem to be as sharp as I used to be.

    1. I know what you mean. I take Neurontin for my nerve pain (failed back surgery) and a anti-depressant. I need them both. Such is life. Truth is, most of life is sweet and all it takes to cheer me up is a grandchild. Any of them will do...
