Sometimes it’s just fun to go around the house and WD-40 things. You start with a door hinge or two and then rationalize since you have the WD-40, you might as well walk around and find stuff to un-squeak.
You know you are making progress with your back recovery when you unwittingly walk over 8,000 steps. I was shocked and had to look at the 28-day history of my Fitbit app. Yesterday’s total was more than double my usual, which is closer to 3,500 steps since the surgery. I mean, some days I’m around the 4,000-4,500 range, so yesterday was a shocker.
I visited my mother’s kidney doctor yesterday, it was the first time I saw him or been in his office in 11 years. I thought it would just be a typical trip to see the doctor for myself, but unexpectedly it was emotional as a lot of memories started to pour in. We spent a lot of time in that office, and it wasn’t all bad, there were some fun memories of inside jokes and such. It was one of those things which you forget a lot about but once you visit a place you start to remember the little things you haven’t thought about in eons, like the tile patterns, and that in itself will trigger other memories. The doctor still had not-so-great bedside manner, but still made up for it with how he explains things and goes into detail and you’re left comforted with his knowledge and expertise. He ordered a sonogram for my kidneys, blood and urinalysis, and a return visit in a month.
The Stormy Daniels/Trump story is interesting. It’s juicy, so it draws attention. She can certainly play it to her advantage by increasing her wealth and visibility, more valuable than what the alleged $130,000 or million she would be penalized. But it’s a valid issue and will stay around because of all things, it may have violated campaign finance laws. On top of that, the loan came from Trump’s attorney who financed it with a home equity loan. If it wasn’t for that, the story would have died long ago, and I expect nothing to really come from it. I only mention the story because there’s a local tie and the silliness of CBS11’s reporting. The NDA is being investigated whether a Forney, TX notary properly signed off on it, where Daniels owned a home. CBS11 had to make this stupid distinction about her house, “This house, with four “x”s above the garage is listed as thetriple-x actress’ home.” I thought that tie-in and forced connection was stupid, really stupid.
A girl on last night’s ‘American Idol’ decided to cover an Adele song and I thought that was a horrible choice, there’s no measuring up to Adele. But to my surprise, she’s going to Hollywood.
