I saw the dentist this morning and he is happy with the way things have healed so far. I made an appointment to have the other molar pulled Oct 7. I just want to feel like living again!
I also visited the gym and walked on the treadmill. I have to get back into wanting to do it. It can be boring, but I can take 25-30 min. of boring if it prolongs having something go wrong with my heart.
My appetite is still like a hungry bear waking up from hibernation, or maybe one getting ready to go into hibernation. Sometimes it is just too much trouble to cook something, as in last night, when I finished off the ice cream - way too much for one sitting. I just brought the spoon and the ice cream container into the living room and didn't stop until it was gone! I didn't get the best night's sleep of my life, but I'm not surprised.
I love to work crossword puzzles. Difficult ones and challengers, not the easy ones. It's hard to find a book with only difficult puzzles, and with the last one I noticed they are throwing a lot of pop culture questions in there - who won an award for best producer (etc.) in 1985, and garbage like that. Also they ask a lot of questions about band members; I've heard of many of the bands but if I know the lead singer that would be about it. I sure can't name the rest of them.
So I went online to see if I could find puzzles with an intellectual bent, and sure enough, they are out there although more expensive than the pop stuff. I've been working these puzzles since I was a kid, and it does wonders to enlarge a person's vocabulary even though many of the definitions are pretty obscure. I want to keep my mind sharp, still learning the language, and find some enjoyment while I'm at it, so I'll probably fork over the $40+ for a subscription.
So after a couple of really hot days we may have one or two in the 70's, and if that happens I think I will venture down to the American River Parkway to see if there is anything to photograph. I want to test the Fuji camera as it's been so long since I've used it. My son, Joe, who often rides his bike along that trail will be here to help me with the leaf blower about mid-week, and I might see what he thinks about me going down to the river by myself. I don't know why I worry about something that has never bothered me before, and I hate to change what I do in my life because of fear. In fact, I'm determined to not fear a damn thing! I'm going to go find something to eat now - be back tomorrow.
