not a waste of a Saturday
( gym: Sept. 21-25Collapse )
One reason to get enough sleep during the week: that way I don't feel lethargic all day on Saturday.
***( gym: Sept. 28 - Oct. 2Collapse )
I gave blood at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Medford ~12:30 today. When they called me on Sunday, I was surprised, not having thought it had been long enough since I last gave blood, but apparently that last was August 6
So I weighed myself at the gym yesterday -- because the form for giving blood asks your weight, and I want to be accurate. ( behind the cut: highlight for weight numbers and talk about food consumptionCollapse )
I didn't get to bed until like 1:30am, but I still woke up a few times before I got up with my 10:30am alarm. And GoogleMaps was actually fairly accurate about how long it would take me to walk to the hospital. I was surprised at how few people there were, but I suppose the rain plus it being early afternoon on Saturday... It did mean I got through quickly. (temp: 98.4F, pulse: 68, BP: 96/60) I am next eligible to give blood Nov. 28.
I deposited L's check, bought paper towels, came home and changed out of my rain-touched (yes, I did use my umbrella) clothes into pajamas, and did a load of laundry (including putting it all away). And felt sleepy doing my Gandhi reading. Sigh. So I laid down and didn't-really-nap for much of the afternoon. I finished the book reading (though I haven't started the online readings), and watched the film clips from Friday, and started my discussion board response.
Prayer from assorted church communities:
UCN: Lillian E. is in the ICU at Brigham with some fluid/blood in her brain after some kind of brain bleed
SCBC: Pastor Vic's wife Mary (age 73) died on Sept. 26
CHPC: LizC's mom (Betty, age 85) died last night after a long illness
FCS: LizD's grandmother had a stroke and is likely in her last days. Liz is particularly saddened that she won't be around to meet her great-granddaughter.
