Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
Two weeks ago I went to the doctor's for my semi-annual bloodwork. Thank you, diabetes! I love having blood drawn.
So I go & while I'm waiting I muck up my lace leaf shawl. Fine. A-frogging we will go. I CO & things move along nicely.
Today I went back to get my bloodwork results (Good results!) & brought along my shawl. AGAIN I mucked it up! I'm going to frog back a row tonight. I should know better than to knit lace in the waiting room at our hospital!
My good news is my A1c is lower than it was in Sept. Not as low as I would like but still very healthy & my doctor smiled. It was also interesting as I finally broke down & bought a blood pressure monitor to use at home. My bp is high at the doctor's office so I was on meds. I had an allergic reaction to a new med a week & a half ago & went off it. Interestingly enough my bp stayed low. 112/73 low. Hmmmmm, white coat syndrome anyone? So today my dr. declared I don't need any other meds which is great!
On a sad note (semi-sad) my mp3 player died today. Hunter bought me one in Oct--an 8g sansa. Cheaper than ipod & was nice on the drive to VT at the holidays. I love books on tape/cd for long drives. So fast forward to earlier this month--it froze up & wouldn't fix itself. I exchanged it on the 10th of this month. Today, same thing! froze up. Wouldn't fix itself. 2 1/2 weeks into using it? I only use it in the car so it's not like it's getting pounded on at the gym or anything. So they issued a refund & off to Best Buy I went to get a cute pink 8g ipod! I like itunes better than Rhapsody because there is so much available! I subscribed to Lime & Violet as well as Ready Set knit----are there any other podcasts you savvy gals think I should subscribe to?
Did I mention it's pink???
I'm enjoying the John Adams miniseries on HBO! I'm not a Paul Giamatti fan but love this show. Right now JA is in France w/ Benjamin Franklin. Oh those crazy French & their powdered faces, blush---pardonnez moi, rouge!, faux beauty marks & ornate dress. And those are just the men!!!
