Figured I should get a blog post in for July. I have been keeping up on Current events in the Memex mostly, so I at least have that life logging still going on. Finally decided to go to a doctor and get a physical. Got my lab results back and everything checks out ok. A little overweight. Probably a little dehydrated, probably because of the flu I had a week before. But overall, ok. No hypertension, no diabetes yet. Figure I should try and lose a little weight. Not sure how I'm going to go about it though. Lessen the food intake and up the activity. The right things. Hydrate more, and sleep more. Shouldn't be that difficult, right? While I was sick, I went like 4-5 days without coffee. I was a little worried about going back to it, but it's not like I needed it. And actually today, I haven't had any yet. Got almost enough tools that I have the Raleigh Super Course completely disassembled. Just have to get the freewheel off. Then have to clean it all and reassemble. My attempt at painting fenders to match the Miyata 610 failed (too almond, not white enough), so hopefully I can add just another translucent layer of white that will fix it. Been more than 30 days since I've biked to work. Got the backyard landscaped, or more like restored. Have a real patio and a little sand pit play area that's Jackson's favorite thing. Always looks forward to playing in it on the weekend, coming home from daycare (both from Children's Learning Place and from the grandparents). Went to Slide the City in Carpentersville last weekend. Fun, only got a couple hours in since we showed up late and they shut it down early because of a lightning warning. Fun as usual. We brought Lucy this time. Jackson's way too small though. Saw someone try and get their toddler down, didn't look very successful.
