No, I didn’t title today’s post because it’s my brother’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Bro!
Instead I can already tell that it’s going to be one of those “old man” days for me, which seem to occur more often than I’d like.
I Thought She Was Trying To Kill Me
Yesterday I joined ITP-Reader Lisa on a trip to the YMCA. After a ten-minute warmup on an elliptical machine we went and did a body pump class, you know, some aerobics intermixed with resistance band and dumbbell reps. For nearly an hour the young, fit, instructor kept barking out the routines we were to do, and I struggled mightily (no surprise). I thought that I was going to die, or at least throw up. Clearly I am out of shape and the person I saw exercising in the mirror directly ahead of me was not the person I’d like to present to the world any longer.
But I did it. Well, as much of the class as I could…
And I am sore today as well.
After our workout Lisa and I celebrated our efforts with a wonderful vegetarian Indian lunch.
How Apropos For Groundhog Day
Yesterday afternoon I decided that I wanted to buy something from B&H Photo. Naturally I went onto my iPad, fired up their app, and placed the order I had queued up a couple of days ago. And then there was an error telling me that my session had expired so I’d have to log in again.
So I did.
And my shopping cart was empty.
So I placed my items into the cart and made the purchase.
And then I received two email confirmations, one for the “unsuccessful” attempt and one for the one I just executed.
Groundhog Day indeed…
After a few minutes of being on hold waiting for a customer service representative I was able to cancel one of the orders before it actually shipped.
It Looks As If I Will Have To See Some Of My Friends Less Often
Oh bother, each time I read articles about addressing today’s health issue they say that I should give up (some are nicer and say to “reduce the consumption of”) caffeine and alcohol. Caffeine and alcohol? These are my bestest friends!
Unfortunately it’s clear that my body is telling me that I have a problem and I am starting to consider going to yet another doctor in order to get some things checked out, especially if I want to make it to the point where my brother is today.
I have been cherishing the days that I’ve not had health issues these past two weeks. Remember, you should be doing this too.
