So I think I've mentioned a time or three that Thursday is my nemesis. It's the one day each week that I just seem to be spinning my wheels instead of getting anywhere. It's like that's the day each item on my to do list starts generating offshoots. Plus, if I'm going to get bad news or have crap happen it's a fair bet that it will happen on Thursday. I'm not talking about giant, life-altering stuff here - just run of the mill inconvenient I could really do without the hassle type stuff.
So today, Tuesday, was my Thursday for the week. I'm officially calling it.
Just a million little grievances that all together have left my little brain swirling. A checkbook snafu (I sometimes wonder if the couples who maintain separate accounts are a step ahead of me), a rescheduled evaluation (freaked out for 2 solid days and rewrote an entire perfectly good lesson and then was told the principal would have to come another day), out of control kids (spring fever much?), last minute training requirement (because I have a spare hour and 15 minutes this week to watch a powerpoint slide show that's just going to annoy me), a computer snafu (when the powers that be don't allow us minions update/install rights on our computers how can they expect us to have to most up to date versions of stuff like Java and Adobe?), and my allergies have been kicking up the last couple days so that's fun too. Plus it's really cold outside but the beautiful, huge snowflakes we had this afternoon didn't stick around. So yeah, Grrr! I'm going to watch something from my dvr or finish my book and go to bed.
Yesterday hubby had a dr. appointment for a follow up on some routine bloodwork. His blood pressure and blood sugar were ok (not great, but ok) but his cholesterol was off the charts. Seriously, in the oh my gosh I didn't know the charts went that high range. I thought he had a typo in the text he sent me. He freaked, I freaked, and even the doctor freaked a little I think. After I calmed down a bit though I've chosen to see this as a blessing. Not the blood test results, but the fact that we found out about this as a result of a blood test not some catastrophic thing like a heart attack or stroke. So the next three months are going to be focused on bringing down his cholesterol through diet and taking his meds as prescribed (no missed doses). Hopefully as a side effect he will lose some weight and bring his blood pressure and blood sugar under even better control. I'm hoping that as an extra side effect I will lose some weight too.
I want a cookie - but I'm not going to have one. I guess that's my small victory for the day.
