Ok, just fooling around here, it's not Spring, nothing is blooming but I miss it already.
It IS a gorgeous day outside, sunny, blue sky and 56 degrees so I really shouldn't be complaining. Watched a deer run across the yard yesterday, lots of leaping and bouncing.
Then I saw the stag come running out of the woods after her. Ahhhhh, yes, tis the season.
Speaking of seasons, I stopped in the home store and picked up a 15 ft. fir swag for the porch railing. I could have stood in the garden center part of the store for ages just inhaling that scent of pine trees. So, I'm one mixed up lady here, pinning for spring and blossoms, enjoying the fall deer run and buying Christmas pine items for decorations.
I blame it all on the fasting I had to endure this morning for the lab. I had my yearly physical at a new clinic, here in town. Had a delightful young, oh so young, barely out of teenhood, woman resident. She was bouncy and had a wonderful smile but such tiny little teeth. I found it hard to NOT focus on her teeth. Isn't that silly? I never saw such little teeth.
Anyway, not due for a pap test until 2012. Apparently, at my age they tell you you can go three years between them. She talked me into a sleep study. I was holding my own on not going down that road but she asked me to listen to her spiel and I did and she made sense so I am.
Apparently, that bad coughing bout I had two years ago may have done a little damage to my lungs, on top of the four surgeries two years ago, add in a little snoring.........ok, a lot of snoring and some sleep apnea, which Zeus thinks I have and she talked me into it.
If you have stop breathing, for whatever reason, you cause stress and strain on the lungs and then the blood backs up in the right ventricle of the heart and well, all in all it's not a good thing.
She also thought that if my body actually got a GOOD nights rest and was allowed to do what the body needs to do when you are sleeping that maybe it would have a positive effect on shedding some weight. I have lost nothing since I had both knees replaced. I'm moving at warp speed and not consuming more food and yet, nothing........not even an ounce.
So, I need to go buy some nice pj's for my sleep study. Maybe something with sheep on them....
The problem is that clothing manufacturers don't think that traditionally built women have a sense of humor, or ever feel sexy or want comfortable clothes. We're rather limited in the stores that carry our size and we are hostages to the tastes of skinny designers.
Oh, and my subject heading is actually the title of a book by A. Smith, the writer of the Women's Detective series. I need to read this one. Oh, and that was my offering for Tea on Tuesday.
I know, I hang my head in shame but honestly do you really want to see another picture of my large, unsweetened, lite ice tea, from McD's?
