I know I have been absent, very absent from this blog. Sometimes that is just the way it goes, I guess. I have been working hard on my genealogical research, and on my genealogy blog. I have been expanding my reading of genealogy blogs, and cutting back on Facebook time.
The biggest change is that I am spending three or more hours a day exercising. That’s right, three hours. I got Wii Fit Plus, and I am enjoying some aspects of the exercise. I got a pedometer, and I can tell how much
I am walking lazy I am. The reason for this change in couch potato behavior? My blood pressure is still rising, not falling. The four(!) medications I take are not solving the problem, and my doctor is at her wits end. I need to be more active, and perhaps even lose some weight to have any chance at controlling that problem.
Watch my widget at the bottom of the sidebar. It is time to make that weight go down, and along with it, hopefully the blood pressure.
In other news, one of the blogs I started reading is this one. I like the author’s positive perspective on life, and I think a positive outlook is one key to happiness. The post I linked to is about lists. That is so much like me, I might have written it. I never move without my list. I often do things, then write them on the list, then cross them off. As if to indicate these things were importance enough to make the list, why else would I waste time doing them? I have blogged about my list obsession twice times, here, and here. I have mentioned my lists many more times, or at least it was on the list, so I probably meant to mention them.
It turns out that I am not the only person with a blog who lives from list to list. Some of these people are going to actually post their lists. I suspect they will be somehow on a higher plane that my grocery and to-do lists, but we shall see. I’m thinking about joining in, what do you think?
