One of my co-workers uses this and recommends it, it might be worth checking out.

Lots of stuff has been happening in the last few weeks. We are making progress to securing planning permission for our house. The new job is if nothing else a change from the old and has been very quiet due to everyone but me being out on vacation. Unfortunately the household has been unable to eradicate what I'm starting to call the Sick. Last weekend both I and my Mother were pretty ill with the flue, she was bedridden for three days. We are still feeling pretty ucky but life goes on. Poor Kate continues to be congested and [livejournal.com profile] paradigmslost has a nasty cough that won't go away. I'm getting to see a specialist in the next month or so, it's taken a year for the system to get to me but they are now sending me to a private clinic as I have been waiting for so long. Perhaps they will have some good suggestion on how to keep these sinus infections that have been plaguing me for the last couple of years at bay. We are also taking Kate in again tomorrow if they don't have anything more proactive to say than "she has a cold, take actifed" we are going to ask for a referral to a pediatric specialist.

I managed to finally finish the red sock, this weekend I need to get in gear and cast on the second sock as one single one doesn't do me much good :-) We are also planning to paint eggs and put up Spring trimmings around the house. Monday was nice and low key Kate and her Papa went to the local small parade and I made the now customary corned beef and cabbage, it was quite yummy.

Plans for our US trip are continuing, it's up to [livejournal.com profile] paradigmslost to give me a schedule for the interviews he wants to do so we can set up an itinerary. I'm not looking forward to the flight but I can't wait to see everyone.

The 24 hour blood pressure monitor showed elevated levels but not to the point where the doctor thought it was necessary to prescribe medication. I'm to have it checked every two weeks for a while to see how I'm doing. I have to say I'm not as relieved as I should be as my trust in this particular Doctor has been eroded somewhat. She doesn't seem to hear me, all she can say about my stress at work is basically that I need to buck up and stick it out because I might not get another job. Her main comment when my cholesterol was found to be too high was that I was going to have a very bland Christmas. She couldn't even remember exactly what some of the values on the blood test were she had to go check with her nurse. I'm just not very impressed with her anymore.

Yesterday was another uneventful day, I think re-educating my ankles not to collapse inward will take a while be be absolutely worthwhile. I can't wait until I don't actively have to think about every step. I think today I will pick up a new pair of Birks to replace my very old worn ones that don't support my feet adequately, I believe there is a sale on so hopefully I can save some money. I also made an appointment with a local eye-clinic for assessment for Lasik surgery, it's getting to the affordable range now and I would love for both [livejournal.com profile] paradigmslost and myself to get it done and get rid of the glasses. Anyway the appointment is free and at least this way I will know if I'm a candidate or not.

This weekend I have a massage appointment and am planning to spend a lot of time at home sorting through the stuff that hasn't been put away yet. Theres an attic trapdoor, maybe we can put some of the assorted ugly artwork, kitchen equipment and carpet that came with the house up there so it won't clutter our space. I'm also thinking about moving one of the HUGE armchairs in the living room up into the extra bedroom. The problem is going to be manoeuvring it up the stairs. I think I'm also going to try to make cookies happen, we shall see.
