Welcome to the FUTURE!

I'm crazy about QR's at the moment and can't wait to do more with them. My head is exploding with ideas.

My asthma seems under control. I have been gluten-free for almost 30 days, and I have not taken any medication for about that long, too. It's been great. My skin feels tighter and healthier, and I just feel more alert and happier. But the asthma thing is the biggest deal, and I've been working on a miracle.

I have been fighting asthma for 30 years. I've tried everything. And now I think that I'm almost finished with it. One... more... step.

Here it is (it's a two-parter):

  1. I'm going to quit alcohol completely.
  2. I'm going to work on building upper body strength.

For the first one, it seems crazy. I don't know how I'm supposed to give up cider and white wine and gin. I love those things very much. After 30 days, perhaps I'll try to drink them once a month or something. This will be a major test of will power. Alcohol has been linked to asthma. It must be addressed before I can say that I've conquered my dark companion.

For the second item, I'm working on getting up to a hundred push-ups in one go. I'm going to try to get to 100 by June 1. I think I'll also get a membership to the Y and start swimming and bench-pressing. Upper body strength has been said to take the stress off much of your respiratory system. It must be developed to muscle out my dark companion.

When I've slayed the dragon, I will write a book to help other people rid themselves of asthma.

Today I found out MBH and I would not buy the house we wanted. But we are moving the cafe and have signed on it and are renovating the space, and one big real estate deal a year might be enough for me. Yes, it sucks that I will not be getting the big tax credit. But that's all right. People have been buying houses without tax credits for a long time.
