Swords and other S Words

So, this morning, I made a game-time decision to go to the DMV and get my driver's license renewed.  It expires in a week and change.  But, it was also time to get my Real ID - which wasn't just a quick and dirty renewal.  I also had to provide my passport, SSN card, and two proofs of address.  I had all that and more, my friends.  I got there about 10 minutes before they opened, and ended up there for about an hour, all told. 

Not the worst, but certainly enough to get my blood pressure spiked.

Speaking of which, yesterday was my flu shot and biometric screening at work - you get money for meeting certain criteria - some of which I met - some, I didn't.  You have to have a blood pressure of 120/80 or less to get some of the money.  I clocked in at 122/82.  CURSES!

But, hey - free flu shot.

I spent not a small amount of time yesterday pondering whether I had been bitten by ants, bedbugs or mosquitos on my Alabama tripc.  The jury is out, but my money is on ants.  Since while I was in Alabama, I got ants crawling on me at the pool one afternoon.  To be clear, I was working - so, I don't feel the least bit bad about being at the pool.  The ant bites feel like some sort of punishment for not doing anything wrong.

Here's my lecture on a lounge chair.  I was working, I promise.
All of this had been hanging over my head for awhile, and it was good to get it handled.  I've also been mulling over how to still see my therapist when we move to the new building - talked it over with the boss, he thinks I should handle it how I see fit and let him know.  Which is honestly a huge weight off of me.  I'm not really surprised, because my employer has been really reasonable about all things health related, but it's a good feeling when your beliefs are validated.

It's been a good week.  It's been a good few years. 

Really, it's just about cutting down the things that hang over your head.  Except ceiling fans, of course - they provide air and comfort and a soothing hum.

Be young, be foolish and be happy, y'all!
