good news

My blood pressure was good when I went to the doctor yesterday. After four months of not eating as well as I intended to, not exercising as much as I should have (but I did carry a lot of boxes of books up and down stairs for three weeks!), and being super stressed about house purchasing and house owning and house repairing, my blood pressure was completely normal at my appointment. Like 120/78 normal! Not 130/85, not so bad. Not 140/90 or 140/100 scary but still first level hypertension.

I guess deciding to let stuff go and carrying boxes of books was all I needed. Plus, breastfeeding. I think I've lost a few pounds from feeding the little (twenty pound) guy.

So, no medication for me and I can just keep trying to lower the salt in my diet and lose the rest of the baby weight in order to get even healthier. No meds!!! Yay!

From experience, I can say house-buying is more stressful than:

Organic Chemistry
The California Bar Exam

*all put together* (okay, maybe not all put together)

Whew! We're in the home stretch though....

self-centered? who, me?

You Belong in the Baby Boomer Generation

You fit in best with people born between 1943 and 1960.

You are optimistic, rebellious, and even a little self centered.

You still believe that you will change the world.

You detest authority and rules. Deep down, you're a non conformist.
