9427 – Tuesday

Got epidural (ouch.), appointment with cardio, met with back doc, got spore, Mexican food and maggie moo’s.

Wal-mart drew the last straw, and is now on the official boycott list – poor service plus bad business practices in the pharmacy.

While BHK was reading bergdorf blonds, I played spore – somehow I can’t use the critter I created in the demo creator in a spore game -still investigating why that is.

Went grocery shopping – Cranberry sierra mist is back and I  got creme de menthe altoids – sad to see the mandarin orange mist gone.

As for walkies – we’ve laid out a reward plan – we have a bundle of space-critter buttons, and for each goal, we get an additional "merit badge" – after we get up to distance, it’ll be repetition. My goal is 5 miles a walk, three walks a week.

So far –

5 badges each–earned

1 after 5x 1 mile walks—Allison got a space piggy, Scott got a red astro-kitty

2 after 4x 2 mile walks

3 after 3x 3 mile walks

4 after 2x 4 mile walks

5 after 1x 5 miles walk!

Walkabout pics – mostly flowers, fruit/berries and birds along the view from the boardwalk – I really like the little red star flowers – forgive the repetition, dear journal – trying out aspects of macro and zoom.








Spoke to Brittney about getting serum ready for Saturday, and maybe an EKG at the same time. *please* let it be ready – this’ll be the third week out. I think it’s likely that we’ll get some this go ’round.
