Of memes and living wills
A MEME swiped from the lovely LA:
A) Recommend to me:
1. a movie:
2. a book:
3. a musical artist, song, or album:
(B) Ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want and I will post the answers in a new entry.
(C) Copy and paste this meme in your blog, allowing your friends to ask you anything. (The operative word here is ask. heh)
OK. SO. Monday again. Did NOTHING over the weekend. Husband was making "I'm running short on undies noises" today. Now, before anyone says anything about him washing his own damn panties, I want to point out that when we got married, I traded groceries for laundry. And he pretty much does whatever I ask. Cat boxes? Check. Trash? Check. Dishwasher? Check. Vacuum? Yup. Clean up after dinner? Uh huh. So. The least I can do is keep up with the laundry.
Man. I'm makin' out like a bandit.
Managed to get out walking friday and today at work. Just took off, midafternoon and did a mile in the office park. Felt good. Nice to get it done while the day was relatively young. I'm putting my little stickers in my calendar, and I'm taking it to the dr next time, so I can show her my proof that I am TOO exercising, and now, could she please tell me, in all her doctorly wisdom, why it ain't doin' any good?
Yeah. I feel like I'm getting fatter by the minute again...and the BP is high.
On an even more cheery note....I got my living will all signed and witnessed today. This Terri Schiavo stuff is just ridiculous. Husband knows full well that if my brain is ever replaced by spinal fluid, he is to unplug me and let me go. Honestly. The way this poor woman has become a political cause for both sides of the aisle is disgusting. But it DID prompt me to make my wishes clear. The original is going to my dr, I'm going to carry a copy in my wallet, and I will leave a copy with my Important Papers at home.
And personally, I'm on the side of the husband in this one. She's not in a coma, but a persistent vegetative state. My understanding is that there IS a difference. There's no there there. What made Terri Terri doesn't exist anymore, no matter how much her parents wish it to be.
And that's what I think about that.
