I've been trying off and on all day to write something to post. I guess it just isn't my day. I start OK, then I find myself lost in a lengthy, rambling, and extremely personal dissertation that I'm not ready to put there yet. I have many things on my mind, changes in my life that I'm trying to make adjustments for, and it is throwing me off my pace. When I write it out it seems a bit soppy. Obviously, I still need to mull it over some more before I publish it. I moped a little to a friend in an email, and that helped. So I'll just deal with some small stuff now.
Yesterday I had an appointment for my annual physical. All was well, and I'm waiting to hear about the lab work results. I don't anticipate any problems, nor does my doctor. He is one of the few things/people I will really miss when I leave here. He is the kind of doctor who listens without rushing, truly takes time to talk and explain everything, answers questions. He is quite honest and straight-forward without having a hard edge. He will be very difficult to replace. Who knows, maybe I'll simply come back here once a year for that. I rarely see a doctor outside the annual thing anyway. We'll see.
Our weather for the next few days is going to be unbearable. Temps at or near 100 with heat indexes 115 to 118. Good weekend to stay inside. I mowed the lawn this AM so I could avoid the really hot stuff over these next few days, and before the real heat of today set in. My yard is large, about 1/3 acre, so thank goodness I have a lawn tractor. I still was dripping wet when I got finished. This is one of those things I hate about the Mid West. It is just about impossible to do anything outside in the summer without becoming miserable. At least it gives me no excuse for avoiding my tasks here in the house!
Now, let's hope tomorrow brings a return of my sense of silliness, my ability to find some personal resolution and peace, or some tender memories to post. Something!!
