What day is it anyway??

Ok, I'm off kilter a bit since I'm not having any days off. It's hard to remember what day it is. :)

Did anyone see the Lunar eclipse this morning???? I woke up at 4 ( then went back to bed) and it was just starting here. By 5 it was totally eclipsed. Too cool. I'm a nut for that sort of thing!

Finally got my Lab results. Yay!!! there was a Rx for some Premerin which I said a big "Hell yes"! My high FSH level and low estradiol are consistent w/ memopause it said.( duh)..plus some other news. Seems as though I've let my Cholesterol get a bit out of whack. Oops! My total is 256! So, I'm supposed to do some aerobic exercise such as brisk walking at least 30 minutes a day. Ummm, I'm already doing that, plus swimming at night. Guess I'll keep it up though. He'll recheck me in 6 months. Both my parents have been on meds for that since they were in their 50's. Genetics I guess. I'm really going to try and get it down by diet and exercise. That would be better. Along w/ my new 'old lady' pill I'm supposed to take a flax oil capsule daily too. Man, those things are huge! But, I'm doing it. :)

I will do almost anything at this point. I feel so worn out and OLD! I hate that. I don't think I'm old enough to feel this way. So, cross the fingers that the pills work.

Why is it that the old and tired can't sleep? I, too, woke up at four this a.m.
Must be something sisterly.
