Ive decided while I was going through my old blog entries that Im not going to list the news tidbits as I have been doing for a couple of years. I hope thats okay with you all.
I will, however, remark on news items that I actually want to comment on. Such as:
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada is recommending that the government offer tax breaks for gym memberships and exercise equipment, and no GST on healthy food purchases. I think this is an outstanding idea but I dont hold out hope.
Sleep has been my friend and my enemy this weekend. My friend when it comes, and my enemy when it leaves. This morning I woke up at around 6:30ish. It was some truck going past the building, Im sure. Thats not unusual but normally I can get back to sleep. After about 5 minutes awake my mind started buzzing with troublesome thoughts and I knew I wasnt going to get back to sleep just by willing it. Thats 3 nights in a row and Im pretty out of it at work. I keep doublechecking my work. I got up to find something that I could watch – X2 seemed to work ok for me Sunday morning. Im glad I taped all those episodes of classic Trek while I was working at home because it wasnt long after I plugged in Star Trek Memories with Leonard Nimoy that I at least got a little more shuteye. When I woke up it was already into the episode with the salt-eating shapechanger. I dont know if its the drone of the VCR or that Spocks shenanigans occupy my higher brain functions, but Im thankful. THANKFUL!
