Just a short post today. My sister, Julie, came from the Bay Area with a friend yesterday, and Steve, Joe, their kids, and I went to a BBQ at Jeannie's house. I haven't ever seen so much delicious food! I went back today and snapped this picture of Julie, Paul, and Jeannie & family. Both days most everyone was in the pool as it's been so hot. I think I was outdoors in the heat too long yesterday and haven't really felt right since, although sleeping 11 hours last night helped.
I took a number of pictures by the pool yesterday but for some reason they all came out looking like stormy waves in the water. Maybe it's a reflection from the sun making it look choppy? Maybe someone can tell me.
Today I got the results of the blood test earlier this week, and it looks like everything is normal. My total cholesterol went down as was to be expected from the low dose of Lipitor, but personally I'm not crazy about it being at 102 as I'm sure it could go down below 100. Having cholesterol that is too low isn't all that healthy either, but I guess I'm stuck taking the Lipitor for a while at least. So far the only negative I've experienced is worsening of and a different type of leg & foot cramps at night.
I missed a night of walking yesterday so I'm going to get back to it this evening. I need to figure out where I can go to walk that is a change of scenery at least once in a while. Could do the gym-treadmill thing, but I can't think of anything more boring, at least to me personally.
DON'T MISS HIS SENSE OF HUMOR
