I was loading the dishwasher and about to put the cocktail shaker in, when it occurred to me that I could make more Margaritas, so I did. I'm not driving anywhere tonight. Dishwasher is running, with the cocktail shaker and strainer.

And Himself wonders why I keep laughing out loud! It certainly isn't my baseball game right now. I need to head to the basement (aka: the Girls Clubhouse - nothing fancy, just a TV and a desk with speakers for the computer and a pad for kitty to lay on) to continue reading DC.

I have mentioned this problem to my doctor. So whoopee! He lowered my BP med by a half of pill. I have more or less changed my diet and am not eating all those foods with a lot of fat. It wasn't a deliberate change. I just prefer veggie salad to fatty meats. And I am eating less that I used to. And the weight is coming off about two pounds a month.

I am going to stop taking my BP meds and not even tell the doctor. I can't keep doing this. My instructions were to check my BP before I take my meds. If my pressure is low, don't take the BP meds. Well, I did check my BP before I took my meds and it was 120/60. That is a very good BP.

Okay. I am feeling better and time to read some of the postings. I need to get some water in me and eat.
You take it easy! It would be a good thing to stay on top of those blood pressure readings. Glad to hear your bp meds got adjusted. Take care! We all want to hear from you for a very long time around here!!
