Geezer? Coot? Old Fogey?

Well, listed out all known symptoms to nurse practitioner, and then again to Doc Johnson, and after careful consideration and looking at last year's blood draw, they're leaning toward it being straightforward menopause, but, because of my family history, they are checking my TSH levels because I have many of the symptoms (but not all). The Doc recommended hormone therapy and gave me a prescription, so I'll give it a try. I know there's pros and cons to hormone therapy, but my Doc says the pros outweigh the cons, and at this point, I'm willing to try. (Plus, he's been a good doctor to me for many years, and I do trust him.) He's also ordered x-rays for my hip and shoulder and they took blood, so with any luck, all things will work themselves out and I will stop dragging around like a zombie (I was so sleepy all day today; I was squinting at the computer screen because everything was bleary).

So tomorrow morning I'll drop White Lightning off at the garage and hopefully they will fix all the major things which are wrong with her, and with any luck at all, it will swing to the correct amount of money (i.e., that which I borrowed for the fixing), leaving me enough to pay off everything else (knock wood). IF our garage comes up with the same estimate as Brakemasters, then I should be more than fine.

Now I'm contemplating all the cookies in the kitchen, although I shouldn't -- I've been really good and actually lost four pounds in the last three weeks, a good start on my goal of reaching 150 pounds by my birthday. Just under two months to go.

Am I the only person who thinks Cougar Town is a laughless snooze-fest? Why do shows that leave me totally meh get so many accolades from TV Guide?
