A busy day
I went to the Dr today. I needed a full checkup. She drew blood. Next week I will get other tests run. I think I'm basically healthy, but I think my thyroid is not working correctly. So this is mainly what she is checking. She is a very nice Dr. I hate to go to the Dr normally. I'm not sure why, but I put it off as much as I can. I did go last spring. So I guess that's ok. But I have not had a full check up with all the lab work for 3 year. And I'm 50 years old, so everything starts to go. I think I had better devote more time to myself. This past year I have not had any personal time. Just time for the 2 houses, the kids etc. I'm not complaining, but I know I have really got to start caring for myself. So even though I hate Drs, I'm proud I made myself go. So now we are also busy in the garden. The lawn is being mowed. I mowed half of it, and Philip is doing the 2nd half. Nicole dug the baskets of flowers out of the front yard. We then took a weed eater to chop down the tall weeds and grass. Now we are covering the whole thing with cardboard. Cutting holes in the cardboard where the plants where. Then will come weed blocker fabric, and mulch. Finally we will return the baskets to the holes. I should have taken a before shot. I missed that. But believe me, it was a mess. I'll save the photos for the finished project.
