I ordered the book Homecoming by John Bradshaw tonight. Checked finderscheapers.com
for prices, but pretty much ignored it since it listed two services I
have accounts with, alibris.com
Alibris lost the sale because their checkout screen failed.
I conjured up some one-time-use credit card numbers. They're great for online purchases because they put a (low) limit on the risk from bad people stealing my numbers from a vendor's databases. Bank of America has that as a service on their online banking site.
I got a long, relaxing nap this afternoon/evening. I woke up at 19:05 which was a little late for some events I wanted to go to that started at 7. I could have gone late, but chose not to.
I really like my new sofa. The old one was eaten up a little by my cats and was really old. I also had trouble with back pain sitting on the old one.
I've got to the Y three days in a row which is a big accomplishment for me.
I made an appointment for Friday with the nurse with my cardiologist. I had not seen the doctor she's attached to since March because I was upset that he'd let my blood pressure be dangerously high for months and then told me my goal level was quite below those level. Right now it is quite consistently a good number so I'm happy.... Also that I'm only taking one medication instead of the 2+ that I'd been taking until March. I am concerned how badly winded I got moving the furniture with my dad which shows that blood pressure might not be an wishful explanation of my cardiac condition.
There's an old famous-ish song Dragostea din tei that had a viral video that made it famous. Back when I first learned about the song, I found a musician Craig Anstey on youtube that had done a cover of it. www.youtube.com/user/Canstey84
I have a copy of his cover that I have for making a mix tape (BQM XVII). It's not a literal translation of the lyrics, but it's a version that's well known.
My last cousin is engaged. The wedding is Sept. 15, so we'll all be packing up and going to Louisiana for the festivities. On the most recent royal wedding in Great Britain I liked that the officiator of the wedding said "I Proclaim them man and wife." I think "proclaim" isn't used much (at least it sounded more elevated than the language I remember from the other weddings.) Of the 15 in our generation I'll be the only one not married and it is most likely going to stay that way. There's also been only 2 divorces which is a point of pride in my family -- of the 6 pairs of married aunts and uncles, they have a combined 300+ years married.
I was able to run the media for my church this week. I had someone behind me helping me be more confident. There were a couple of places where he suggested I black the screen that I didn't do on my own. The social media feed was a little messy to turn off, but I remembered the right way to do that so it was not broken for long.
I guess I've typed enough....
