1. Health, or Whatever Passes For It These Days
3:44 PM Dear fibromyalgia: Why do you continue finding new ways to make me suffer? What did I ever do to you?
8:47 AM When your doctor tells you he can work you in to aspirate your swollen knee, do yourself a favor and do NOT google “aspirate” ahead of time.
8:51 AM I’m sure the imaging people hear all kinds of dubious excuses , but I really DID have to call out sick from my mammogram today.Honest.
10:34 AM Went to the doctor for my knee, came out with a diagnosis of high blood pressure.
10:34 AM Also: last month doctor said it was best not to take pain meds if at all possible; this month he said I can take up to 6 a day. WTF?
11:03 AM So now I have to figure out how to go low-sodium. I wonder if there’s such a thing as low-salt salt?
11:24 AM Now that I have to monitor my sodium intake, I’ve discovered this: the world is not made of atoms; the world is made of salt.
2. The Cats, and Other Assorted Wildlife
7:45 PM After all these years I really should’ve known. Tigger didn’t want me for affection; he wanted me for food. Silly me.
5:03 PM Tigger, I’m going to have to stop referring to you as “The Smart One” if you continue to eat your own hair off of the floor.
8:03 AM I would really like to think that my life has a larger purpose than simply that of being Servant To Their Mighty Royal Feline Highnesses.
10:17 AM The ants are now swarming across the kitchen floor. Perhaps it’s time to move and just let them have the house.
1:45 PM Oh, Twitter “group” organizing option, how you do captivate and seduce my pink, puffy, OCD heart!
2:51 PM Am tattooing this to my forehead: “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.” — Charles Dickens
10:20 AM Well it’s taken a while, but happily I no longer want to punch all the characters from the “Dollhouse” in the face at the end of every show.
11:34 AM Oh Russell Stover Chocolate Maple Cream Easter Egg, once again I have succumbed to your siren song.
