At last – a blog entry

It’s been nearly two years since my last entry.  What in the hell have I been doing all that time?  I’ve been in school.  Yup, I ranted in a post two years ago about the incompetence of the school I was trying to attend, and they later called me and said they had an opening in the program.  I went, I studied, I graduated.  And I am actually working in a hospital part-time.

So what else has changed in these two years?  I’m fatter.  Nothing beats comfort food when you are stressed out about school and work.  My knees crunch even more and I am someday going to need knee replacement.  Oh yeah, and I have arthritis in my neck.  My thyroid is giving me fits.  But other than all of these petty annoyances, I’m just dandy.
I started swimming for fitness.  I swim in all weather at the local community pool.  If it rains, I swim.  If it is cold, I swim.  If it’s hot, I fight the crowds and swim.  It is really the only exercise for someone who hates to sweat.
I have taken a hiatus from being a political junky because I simply don’t have time anymore.  Now I find myself studying the heart and related diseases because I have to take a big fat test to get my official registration as a cardiovascular technologist.  I’m really looking forward to that.
And in the past two years, I’ve lost my Dad and two cats.  Well, I didn’t “lose” them, but they are gone.  Should I sound more sad?  I do sarcastic better than sad.
And we started another remodel project.  This time it is the master suite.  Apparently we have too much money and need to get rid of it.
Speaking of money, we got Segways this year.  Now that is a good time.  Until you fall off it and it runs you over.  But that has only happened once, so it’s all good.  And it happened to the spousal unit, not me.  I’m glad I was in front of her so I didn’t run over her too.
That’s a brief rundown of the last two years.  My life in a very small nutshell.

I have a wide range of interests, but not a great deal of depth in any of them. So here I share just a smattering of my random thoughts, mostly for my own amusement.
