“Halfway there,…sort of”

           When we left our fearless blogger yesterday he was headed to the Home Superstore to get one of those wax ring thingys for the leaking toilet. And despite the simplicity of the task it still remains undone. Fixing it that is. I got not one, but two ring thingys, as perhaps I may need a thicker one than the regular size and I hate to have to drive all the way back again,….BUT I forgot to get a “putty knife” to scrape off the old wax before applying the new ring thingy to insure a good tight seal, that would be on todays agenda. (Looks like that may be the solution as the spot on the ceiling seems to be drying up a bit.) I will announce the final step completion once I get it done, maybe tomorrow it’s too damn cold here today.

        In the “seriously” pile I find a question that is annoying me. This past couple of weeks, ever since Thanksgiving, my weight, which I take every day, has been yo-yoing by three to six pounds a day. I’m thinking it has to be the scales because I am not over eating, no new additions or changes to what I am eating, and aside from a damn head cold I got no aches, pains, or other maladies,….at least apparent maladies aside from acute depression which has been an annual holiday thing since I was like 16 years old!

        Blood pressure is on the mark every day, working on developing a schedule that is balanced between the shifts I have to work, the “management tasks” of my Association management firm, and of course my exercise program. Alas it’s at best a juggling act. I prefer to go to the gym in the 2-4 period every day to workout, but looks like I’m going to have to get one of those big wall charts to see where my open slots will be. I really have no desire to go workout after supper, and I’ve turned into an old Florida wuss, as it’s too cold (45 – 55 degrees) in the predawn and early hours. (sigh) Into each life a little rain must fall.

         The pest control guy came this morning and was spraying the house for bugs and as he was leaving he said “So are you all ready for Christmas?” I looked at him and said, “As ready as I’m going to be.” He smiled and said “Great answer, that’s what I tell my wife, if we ain’t got it we can’t give it you know?”

        Well just a short one this time, gotta run and have a bite to eat then off to the gym and try and get back below 190 pounds again. (Maybe when I’m doing my volunteer thing at the local hospital ER this week I’ll ask them if they can do a quick and dirty lipo-suction for say about six or seven pounds, you know sort of an under the table “favor”,…but I doubt it.
