Things I like

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have the honor (once again) of chairing a Wednesday noon-time AA speaker meeting.  This means I get to choose the person who will be qualifiying/telling part of their story.  I really enjoy getting to do this.  I have some really fine lads and lassies lined up for the month.

for some excellent test results.  I was diagnosed with Peripheral Artery Disease in 2005.  My symptoms are in my legs (calves) and is mostly noticeable when I walk long distances (15 minutes or more).  Since 2006 I have spent a lot of time on treadmills and eliptical machines with very beneficial results.
In the last 2 weeks, I had my annual ultrasound testings and got the good results yesterday.  My doctor tells me to just keep doing what I'm doing, especially not smoking
(which was the cause in the first place).

that I enjoy being busy, but dislike feeling overwhelmed.  Finding that just right medium is elusive for me.

None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.

Glad that you got the good medical results. I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. I simplify my life as much as possible.

I don't like being overwhelmed either. Have trouble dealing with too much at once. Tend to get a little cranky!
