Against my will, I was forced to eat a Cici’s yesterday and the Michael Bolton (you know, that no-talent a– clown) song “How Can We Be Lovers If We Can’t Be Friends” started to play. That might have been the first time I heard the song this century.
I’ve got a sinus infection (’tis the season) and part of the routine is taking Mucinex D. I’ve always taken two tablets per dose for as long as I can recall; but yesterday, for some reason, I actually read the directions and shockingly discovered I should have been taking only one tablet at a time.
Tuesday should be a bit of a reprieve for local allergy sufferers. If you scroll to the bottom, it will list the five best and worst cities for allergy sufferers. The five worst for yesterday were Tampa, FL, Abilene, TX, Lorado, TX, Dallas, TX, and Fort Worth, TX.
I mowed for the first time this year over the weekend.
I’m still having trouble waking up early, but doing so this weekend allowed me to take the family out for early breakfast each day, and it was fantastic.
One of my neighbors owns a countertop business. In exchange for watching his black lab for three nights when he and his family live it up in Vegas, he’s going to install a granite countertop in the kids bathroom. I think I’ve come out ahead in that deal.
The ‘Mythbusters’ series finale and reunion show was much better than I expected. One thing I appreciated about the reunion show was they talked about all the lame myths the really didn’t want to do but were forced to for one reason or another. I also learned that a candy bar has more energy in it than a stick of dynamite; however, the energy in the candy bar is distributed very slowly over a long period of time and the dynamite’s energy is distributed in a flash.
I bought new socks. I love the feel of wearing new socks.
This weekend was so packed I didn’t get a chance to watch even one episode of the new season of ‘House of Cards’.
WifeGeeding was happy with the ‘Downton Abbey’ series finale.
I’ve often heard of the statistic that a surviving spouse lives on average two years, sooner if their love or bond was quite strong. Heck, I think I first heard of it after Pat Nixon died, with my mother and father saying that there’s no way the former president would live past two years. He died ten months later. With that in mind, I thought Nancy Reagan would have died within that time frame, especially seeing how she publically mourned after her husband’s death.
Military.com – Navy Loosens Body Fat Rules to Retain Sailors – The service branch loosened its body fat restrictions in January and is allowing those who failed their exams three or more times to get one more opportunity to be tested this spring under the more lenient guidelines. The Navy said it has been losing too many talented sailors. Some were resorting to liposuction, diet pills and other measures to save their careers.
