Last night I watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on DVD, tonight I put in some quality time with the latest Dave Barry book, and overall, the weekend was pretty much just spent lying around, relaxing, and trying not to think about everything that’s been stressing me out over the past couple of weeks. I didn’t make it over to the park like I had wanted to…maybe tomorrow after I finish baking…but I can’t really complain too much…

  • Got a decent amount of writing done over the course of the week (mainly humor columns) and spent a good bit of time trying to find a new design for my professional site that I can be happy with. Unfortunately, I had to scrap the “lined paper layout because it was just too confusing and it’d have been impossible to get the text to line up with the background, but now I’ve got something better and I’m VERY happy with the way that it looks! Hopefully it won’t be more than another week or so until I can unveil it because I’m really proud of this one – the biggest step is probably going to be converting 300+ columns over to a new format (…again…), but ultimately I think that it’ll be well worth it.
  • Came across an interesting find this evening that I may or may not put up on the new site when I get that far – some of the very first columns that I ever wrote, circa 8th grade, which would’ve made me about 14 at the time (1994). Apparently I was a bit racier then than I am now and I don’t know if I want to go there or not, but it’s still kind of interesting to see where I started with all of this. Then again, I’ve always said that one day I’ll put up the big “novel” that I wrote around that same time, so we’ll see…
  • Need to go over to Disney either next weekend or the one after because I guess the blockouts for Easter are coming up soon. It’s kind of hard to believe that I haven’t been over once since I renewed it, but I know I’ll get my money’s worth eventually, so that doesn’t really bother me. Man, would it be great to find someone around here that had the money to go every now and then, though! 😛
  • Finally got Mom’s taxes done this evening, and Lori’s will be soon to follow, but I haven’t even touched mine…and I’m a little afraid to! I can’t possibly owe what I did last year because, well, I didn’t make as much money, but I suppose either way I really should get it done soon at least so I won’t be scrambling for change at the last minute…
  • But seriously, the truly scary post – being included here not to freak everybody out, but more so I can look back on it later and such – is that tomorrow I’m going to the doctor’s before work. I’m doing it under the cover of a “routine check-up” because I haven’t had one probably since I graduated from high school and that was seven years ago, but more so I’ve decided that it’s finally time to find out if I’m going to be following in my family traditions of high blood pressure, diabetes, etc… I know that I’m still a little overweight, even though I’m trying, but a few things that I’d rather not talk about here have happened lately and frankly, they scared the bejesus out of me enough to where I actually made the appointment last Friday. Hopefully it’ll all just be attributed to nervous anxiety … lord knows that’s caused me enough trouble in the last month … but I just don’t want to have a heart attack (or worse) at the age of 25.

I tried to convince myself tonight that I was too young for that to happen, but with the rate that today’s society is going, I’m really not. I know a girl younger than me who has to check her sugar every few hours for diabetes; another good friend of mine cut caffeine completely out of his diet altogether last year after he started having heart palpatations, so anything can happen. I can handle taking a pill or something everyday if it’s just hereditary and there’s nothing I can do about it, but I just really hope that I won’t have to do anything too drastic because although I really am trying with the diet and exercise, I’m going to be miserable if I have to cut out the things that I like altogether. I guess we’ll just have to see what happens…
