District Manager FINALLY thanked me for doing 2 jobs all summer and told me how well I was doing, and told me they finally hired someone for the spot I was covering, and I get to train her starting next week. And I said thank you and that's good to know because I'm retiring. So now I guess I have to actually retire.
So in more birthday news I'm going to be a great-aunt times 3! My niece Jessica and her husband Alan are adopting 2 sisters from Taiwan, to arrive in 5-6 months, and no sooner had they announced this than Jess's brother Joshua announced that he and Anne are going to have a girl even sooner than that!
Putting this out there for the record: age 68 as of 9/1/13. Height 5'2". Weight 124.0 BP 128/76. Pulse 65. I want to see what happens when it gets cooler and my appetite comes back. I'm also hoping to quit smoking before I retire, and yes, I am seriously considering retiring very soon. I wonder how my body will change.
Got my birthday wish. Susannah and Ian (aka My Kid Nine and Partner) came over and Ian cleaned up my yard while I "helped." Ivy is no joke. My 12'X12' cement yard yielded FOUR Contractor Bags of ivy and weeds pulled from the sidewalk and planters. He had to attack the ivy with a tree saw. First time I've seen my clothesline pole in 10 years.
Rabbit! Because it's a Sunday, I wake up to the Sunday Things: check BP and weigh in. Take boneloss pill and do not lie down for 1/2 hour or eat anything. Then take Atenolol and Lipitor and a baby aspirin and orange juice. Because it's the first of the month take Vit D supplement.
So, Today I had a checkup, didn't go to work. Friday is Salary Reduction Day (off), Sunday is my birthday, Monday is Labor Day, and Weds is another Doctor Day off. I could get used to a 3 day work week.
