That's what hit me this morning while I was swimming. Even when my lungs were at their worst, I could always swim. But, this morning, it was tough. I was swimming as normal but breathing diet air.
So I came home and pulled out the unopened Spiriva that I had decided I didn't need and fired it up. Then I sent a note to my doctor to please refill. My new insurance has an online pharmacy so I decided to switch my prescriptions there. Signing up was a bit confusing but I finally got that noodled out and set up and it looks like it's a fair bit cheaper than my current one so that's a pleasant surprise.
I feel like there's more Valentines Day hype this year than in the past. My Valentines Day gift is the start of 2017 baseball.
I finished my swim book today - Tracy Kidder's Strength in What Remains: A Journey of Remembrance and Forgiveness. It was interesting - especially the first half but I have to admit I was glad when it was over. I may do music for the next swim or two before I start another book. But next up is Kate Andersen Brower's First Women: The Grace and Power of America's Modern First Ladies.
Today's plans involve a walk - back to Uwajimaya for another poke bowl. Also I want to exercise my walking lungs. I was going to skip today and go tomorrow but to my delight, ljtourist pinged me last night to lunch with him tomorrow and, after lunch, try out a new (to us) donut place.
Also today I need to make sure the house is picked up so that the house cleaner can clean. No, I don't clean before the cleaner but I do like to ensure she doesn't have to waste time tidying up. Plus, she and I have different ideas about where stuff should be put away so rather than my spending time trying to figure out where she put x, I make sure x is put away before she gets here.
I have sewing I want to do today but someday very soon, I need to fill out the CPA's tax thing and send it in. It won't even take an hour. My finances are dirt simple on my end. The only deduction I have is the six months of mortgage interest I paid last year. My financial adviser handles the complicated stuff. But nothing will happen until I get it going. Maybe tomorrow?
