B&N is alternating between 4 and 8 hours a week for me now. Bookup stays fairly steady at one full day and two half days. We have two people working on our forum integration. I got the help desk set up yesterday, but there are two problems to overcome there as well.  I am moving forward in learning the Traffic Ultimatum system. I have not had much luck finding good options to play lately. I will check IBD again soon.

My health continues to be good, though I’ve been fighting the beginnings of a sore throat with fresh OJ, hot cider and Alkaselzter Cold and Cough. Yoga has been a great addition to my life, increased flexibility is already present, though I don’t get to go to the full class very often. This morning I didn’t groan at a single “take a vinyasa” as was my habit previously.

I am currently off all medications, though I do now have health insurance cards for the newest policy Rich’s company has adopted. I’m not sure I mentioned this, but I have a new GP-OB/GYN here in town, instead of having to run to Newark, and a clean bill of health from her as well. I see my RA doc soon, and need to make a Dentist appointment as well, they’ve been calling again.

Rich had a couple setbacks this week. Some trouble with possible hernias that he is getting checked out today. And a slight mishap in a parking lot between his car and an SUV.  All is well and being taken care of, insurance is a wonderful thing.

Coming soon: Cedar Point and MarCon

I’ve stopped taking my drugs. Not intentionally, I’ve just been lazy. I think I last took some on Saturday, maybe Friday. I’ve little aches here and there, but some movement and stretching generally makes them feel better. I really need to make the time to exercise, and I keep saying this, but it’s true. Yoga, Tai Chi, Strength Training, something, probably all of the above. Food’s been going alright, though I’ve had mad cravings for chocolate lately. And, I admit, have indulged a few times. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, I’m down to 125 last check. That’s 20 pounds in the last three months. Was not my intention, and I’d really rather gain some of that back, in muscle preferably(see the need to exercise). Other than that, things are really going quite well.

Food of the Week: Red Potatoes and Broccoli, dressed with Olive Oil, Rosemary, Basil and Garlic Salt.
