It’s getting to the part of the day where my “want to work” starts running out. And unfortunately, I have two hours left.
We’ve moved back to the Tech Center office from Lakewood, which has cut my commute to 15 minutes down from 40, but I’m still dragging around in the morning and not getting to work on time. I think I’m sleeping okay the first part of the night, but then I wake up too early and don’t really sleep well the rest of the night because it’s already starting to get light. So then at my real getting up time, I’m sleepy and draggy. Maybe curtains over the window shade would help.
In other news, however, I am apparently in pretty good health. Ha! We have this new wellness program at work, which will have some implications for our health insurance coverage choices, but I’m not sure what that means yet. We had to do a health questionnaire, which scored me at 70% (good – probably only because I don’t smoke or drink, because I couldn’t say much good about my eating habits). We also got screenings yesterday for stuff like BP, BMI, glucose level, and cholesterol, and I was within the good range for all, except that my blood pressure was a little high.
I signed up for a consultation on healthy eating, and I’m also participating in a walking challenge. That should be the easiest because I used to be pretty consistent about walking 10,000 steps a day. I’ve just been lazy the last 3 or 4 years. With the weather so nice, I’ve been either walking to lunch or taking a walk in the park across the street in the afternoon. And so far (only the first weekend in), I have been good at making myself walk at home to get to 10,000.
We’re still working on getting mom’s house ready to sell. We decided to go ahead and fix it up a bit before putting it on the market, so we had the hardwood floors sanded and stained, the kitchen floor re-tiled, and the bathroom totally redone. It looks really cute. Too bad it’s way smaller than our current place and 10 miles in the wrong direction from work.
Plus, I don’t think I’d be comfortable with all the nosy neighbors who knew us as kids. :P
They’ve also announced that the jury has come to a verdict in the Aurora theater shooting. Guilty, guilty, guilty! (As if there was really any question…)
