Doctor Visits and Workouts

Judy has had two doctor visits in the last two days. In both cases the results were god and both doctors don't want to see her back for six months unless there is a problem. Doctor visits are getting fewer and fewer. YEA!

I upped my total weight lifted yesterday to 40,760. I also tried to do something yesterday that I haven't done for many years: run, or at least trot. I have a new app on my cell phone called C25K, which is supposed to get you from being a couch potato to running a 5K in about 8 months. Not sure if I will ever get to that point but at least I am staying active.

Daniel's Visit

It was a nice day with Teri and Daniel coming here for a visit. Daniel is getting quite proficient in dribbling the basket ball. If he keeps growing the way he has he will be able to compete in football, basket ball, and base ball when he gets older. In addition to dribbling he can throw a small football straight as an arrow. In addition to his athletic abilities he is also quite good with music. An all around good boy.

We got up early to go to a yard sale that Judy said yesterday she wanted to go to. When I got her up this morning she said that maybe she would just stay in bed and I gave her the evil eye. She said that it was the best that I have ever done. I wasn't going to let her out of it since I gave up going to the YMCA so she could go to the sale.

Mid-Week or Hump Day

When one is retired hump day really doesn't have the same meaning as when one is working. Same thing with holidays, Fridays, and Mondays.

Took Judy for her Heart Failure Clinic checkup this afternoon and she got a good report. Instead of weekly visits they moved her out to a bi-weekly visit. Tomorrow she goes to a neurologist to see if there is anything in her head that we should be concerned about. I keep telling her that she has nothing to worry about as there isn't much up there :-)

Go Nowhere Tuesday

Today was a free day. No workout and no doctor visits. Both are on the schedule for tomorrow though.

We went outside this afternoon and pulled some weeds from the flower garden and I picked up all the larger branches from the front and side yards. It is supposed to rain tomorrow so hopefully on Thursday I will be able to get out and mow it all.

Watched a little TV this evening and now it is time to get ready for bed and do some reading before I shut the lights off.

Good Doctor's Report

Judy got a good report from one of her doctors this afternoon. All the blood tests were good and she doesn't have to go back to him for 4 months.

To celebrate we went to Logan's Road House for dinner and we both brought about half of it home to have sometime tomorrow.

I guess I will have to break down and pick up all the stray branches and twigs in my yard tomorrow so I can mow it without going over them. We have had a lot of wind damage on the pine trees this winter and spring. After picking up the branches and stuff I will hook my lawn vacuum up to my tractor and mow and vacuum the front yard. Maybe I can burn the stuff if it isn't too windy.

This was a good day. Started with Sunday School and then church service. Today was Disaster Relief Day in Alabama Southern Baptist Convention churches and we took up a special offering to help pay for the expenses that are incurred during call outs.

Judy and I had a quiet afternoon and evening, reading and watching our favorite programs.

The Grass Was Calling

I put it off as long as I could. Yes, the dreaded lawn mowing. Although I only did the fenced in area, it means that from now until late October I will have to mow the yard at least every two weeks.

It was a very lazy day otherwise. Watched some TV and read some in my book on my Kindle Fire. I have so many books on it that I think if I never order another book I can be reading for five years or more. Most of the books that I have have been free so I wont mind it too much if I don't get them all read.
