Rambling and sometimes I just read too much...

--So...it's been a long time since I blogged. As far as my weight loss, right now I have no idea where I am, nor do I really think that I want to know. I will weigh myself tomorrow. I've had this flu bug for the past two weeks and so could not exercise due to coughing fits, breathing issues and general blah-ness. Now, due to my idleness, my arthritis is acting up in my back (crawling around the floor "cutting in" the paint probably didn't help either). Then I "tweaked" my neck. My caring husband is having a heyday with my little ouchs, turning my whole body to look at something, etc. At least someone is having fun!
--I was reading a book called "The Other Brain". I know it sounds like a good horror novel but it was actually about the non-neuronal part of your brain known as glia. Anyhow, I came across the reason why I am a "permanent no donor for blood" after being stationed in Europe during the mad cow epidemic. Previously, I had asked nurses and doctors and no one had a good answer. Well, as my book explained, it seems mad cow disease can incubate in one's system for quite a long, long time! I believe they don't even know how long...30, 50 years!? Just great! At least I don't have to worry about the organ donor thing anymore. I really did feel guilty about not wanting to donate my organs.
--We finally got the living room painted so now my husband needs to put up the crown molding and trim the doors and windows and we're done! We actually painted it twice. The first color, although it looked nice on the square inch sample, was a bright lemon once it was on the walls. The next time we invested in the little can samples and painted all over different parts of the walls. We picked the color, painted the walls and it STILL doesn't look like what we painted from the cans. Tough, it's the color we have now. Neither one of us has the energy to paint it again!
--We also invested in some pretty gas logs for our fireplace. I am very, very happy with them. We will have a happy renter while we move to New Orleans.
--Well there is a short update on my "exciting" life.
************Have a great day, everyone!*********************
