Good Sunday...

I slept VERY LATE. That was lovely! I had a bunch of great dreams. I think some were directly inspired from seeing "The Greatest Showman" last night. (smile) So full of color and joy.

Marilyn was gone when I got up, so I did my blood and insulin and set up my pills. Then she came back. She'd wanted to use the track at Roosevelt to run, but it was very busy there.

So she headed to the park to run, instead.

I headed over after I got dressed and we ended up walking there together. I had Sirius radio playing on my phone while we walked and chatted. We were listening to the Beatles, surprise. (I got more than 6,000 steps today.)

When she changed we took a bunch of stuff to the Goodwill (woo hoo) and also picked up prescriptions at the pharmacy (we both had some to get).

After that we took a ride and ended up at Starbucks near Gresham where we like to go. There's an Old Navy near by so we also shopped there.

Then we finally came back home again and were resting and watching the Australian Open Tennis on TV (it started today).

Tomorrow I go to see my nurse practitioner. I don't know if we'll get any answers or not. But maybe we three can start investigating what's currently wrong with me...

I need to check in with Kris about Barracuda (the spam blockers) and Donn to see if he's over the flu. I need him to profile Lisa -- Marilyn's seasonal assistant for 2018 -- this week. Then I'm set to train her on Thursday.

We ate leftovers today from Bong (no meat for me).

It's interesting how good we're being -- and how natural it feels. We've cut back our food intake a great deal. We're drinking a lot of fluids. We're getting more sleep. We're exercising EVERY SINGLE DAY.

We play nearly NO GAMES now. We haven't touched SimCity BuildIt in months, by the way. We still play good old Zuma, though -- nice for eye-hand coordination and mental planning for the patterns.

All this is aside from work, of course.

I've also been reading more again and writing regularly.

Not a bad start to the year. We just need to keep it up!

Marilyn is IMPRESSIVE with her running. She had been doing so well last year until her fall and knee injury. That knee still gives her pain, by the way. Awful. And she really had a fear of falling for some time after that fall...

I Facetimed Rich to tell him to simply go ahead and do whatever they needed to in order to get Merlin's lessons working on my laptop. He's wanted to get together, but I figured I wouldn't know how it needed to be set up anyway, so... She can take it to class and get help, he said, so it's all good.

It's a shame that a doctor appointment will mess up tomorrow. But at least we have the day off! That's nice.

The weather today was lovely! Actually clear and sunny with blue skies. Very mild. Heavy east wind out by Old Navy, though -- and chilly there! We're expecting rain the rest of the week.

Marilyn is right now running on the treadmill. She is dedicated!!!

Heading to bed soon (it's just past midnight here).

Sweet dreams, friends!!!
