Today, I had a doctor's appointment in the morning for my physical and to go over lab test results; things were good for the most part. Somethings could have been better, of course. My weight, for example. But various other on-going conditions I have are all under control and within acceptable levels, so, that was good. However, I was dehydrated, according to the blood tests, so I need to up my water intake!
After the doctor's appointment, I went to the office and had a good day. I didn't go to the farmers market, today, but did treat myself to teriyaki chicken and rice for lunch from a nearby Japanese restaurant. I had the leftovers for dinner.
On my way home from work, I put gas to the car. I had a little over 1/4 tank of gas but less than 1/2 tank. I try to have at least half a tank of gas at all times; I live in earthquake country and if there's a big earthquake and the electricity goes off, one can't get gas because there are no hand operated gas pumps anymore. At least, not in this area. I'm really dating myself, aren't I? Anyone else remember hand operated gas pumps? Or full service gas stations? The cheapest gas was $3.45/gal. and I put for $30. I now have an almost full tank of gas.
I was very sleepy when I got home, so I took a short nap on the sofa. As a result, I didn't do any weeding, today. Instead, I washed the dishes, scrubbed the sink, and cleaned the kitchen. And video chatted with daughter, of course.
Today, I am grateful for:
1. A good doctor's visit and check up
2. Good lab test results
3. No co-pay required for a physical
4. They even validated 1 hr. of parking, today (not a consistent happening)
5. Naps on the sofa
So, what about bucket lists? In exactly 5 months from today, I will turn 60. I read somewhere about people making a bucket list of X things before X birthday. I don't have any bucket lists, as such, unless it is to lose the extra weight I've gained over the years. But I am wondering if I should have a bucket list. If I were to have a bucket list of 60 things to do before my 60th birthday, what would they be? Do you have a bucket list? If you were to come up with a bucket list before your next birthday, what sort of things would you have on your bucket list?
