Today I turn 41 and a half. I'm not where I expected to be at this point, but that is probably a post for another day.

For the past several months I've (finally) been making an effort to get into better shape. Exercise and weight loss have been on the "things I should do" to help cholesterol, sleep apnea, and depression. I've tried several times in the past to start something, but I was never able to get to the point where it would be part of my schedule.

But this one seems to be working. )

My friend [livejournal.com profile] oaken_glen is going to be walking in the Philadelphia 3-Day to support breast cancer research. You should all go and support her.

So spoke my new dentist. 

Went in yesterday to get my filling replaced, talked about why I've had trouble with that tooth and we both agreed that it was the wisdom tooth behind it that was mostly to blame.  (The wisdom tooth was situated in such a way that food was always getting caught between it and the other tooth).  So he says "Let's take it out".  After asking me a few times if I want it out or not (and me not real sure about this), he says "It's coming out".  And it did. 

Normally this might have bothered me, but I've been of the opinion that it should be removed for years, I just never got up the nerve to get it done - it wasn't like it was impacted or something.  I still have my other three wisdom teeth, and he doesn't see any reason to mess with them.

I've got a follow up appointment the day before I leave for Pennsic, but given that today it doesn't even hurt (and no drugs!) I suspect things will be fine.

But before that )

The new software person started yesterday.  Nice guy, seems to know his stuff, but we seem to have trouble communicating (lots of corrections and misunderstandings).  I suspect it will take a bit of time for us both to figure out what works best. 

Got home and was paying the bills when *pop* out drops one of my fillings.  So now I've got a big gapping hole in one of my teeth.  We'd been in the process of switching dentists so I had to speed that along and got an appointment for Thursday before shire meeting.

Went to fencing for the first time in months - I'm very out of practice (not that I was that good before) and still very out of shape.  Need to keep going to the gym.  I've been able to make it at least three times a week so far, but Pennsic will stop that for a bit.  Our marshal gave [livejournal.com profile] violet_amy and I some fencing homework for Pennsic - namely to fight some pick up bouts during the week.  With my current schedule, I don't see it happening but I'll bring my stuff along anyway.  I'm going to leave my archery stuff at home - I'm so out of practice there that it's not worth it.

For the rest of the week )

Monday's seem like a good time to revisit the week before and think about the week ahead.
