Just catching up a little

Well, just decided to catch up a little bit.  It has been way too long since I last posted to this site.  So far I’ve been keeping my diabetes, blood pressure, etc. all in check.  Am still trying to lose a little weight though.  Have been going to the YMCA three times a week lately and have started a different work-out regimen.  I was doing a bunch of crunches, (up to 1,000) and discovered that I have an epigastric hernia and doing all of those crunches is only exacerbating it, so have decided to change the routine.  Now I walk 1/2 mile on the inside track, then do maybe 1/2 hour on the stationery bicycle, then to another 1/2 hour on the treadmill, then a few sets for the biceps/triceps.  Needless to say, that does work up quite a sweat but I feel really good afterwards.

Went to a Mexican Independence party yesterday in Whiting, IN with Jerónimo and family.  I was in charge of making my famous “palomas” which is a drink with Tequila, Squirt and lime juice.  Everyone loves them and I made 4 one gallon containers and they were still asking for more but I didn’t have any more tequila or limes or Squirt, so they just had to go thirsty.  The food they has was so-so.  Someone made a “tinga” of beef, which was ok I guess.  Then there was rice, refried beans and fried chicken.

I often ponder about some strange things and one that always befuddles me is when I wash clothes, why everything comes out of the dryer turned inside out.  It goes into the dryer the right way, but always comes out wrong.  And the craziest thing is that if I actually turn it inside out when I put it into the dryer, it stays that way, it doesn’t turn itself right side out, as I would expect it to do.  It’s crazy and it drives me crazy.  LOL

Well, here it is the middle of September already.  Gosh how the time flies.  And I think that as we get older it goes by even faster.  Seems like only yesterday the year was just beginning and here it is Autumn already.  And what have I done with all that time?  Good question.  Haven’t really done anything productive, except the workout routine I guess so I guess that is something productive.

Well, that’s about it for today.  Hopefully I’ll be able to update a little more often.

Hope everyone is doing well.
