Had my annual physical this morning. The doctor said everything looks good and results of my PAP should be back in approximately three weeks.

I asked her about my achy knees and she's going to run a test for arthritis. She did say part of my knee pain could be foot related since I walk on the outer edges of my feet (the other thing I asked about). I have noticed since I started not wearing shoes at home and at the office that my feet hurt less, as do my knees. But I don't know if that's also because it hasn't gotten that cold here yet or because I have a space heater under my desk or because I've been exercising or a combination of all three. :)

She did recommend cinnamon (1/2 tsp w/ 1 tbs honey), apparently it's the world's second most perfect food and provides a LOT of other health benefits. So I guess I'll had cinnamon and honey to my plain oatmeal each morning.

This weekend I also completed an in depth revision of my current work in progress. It still needs a lot of work and several more scenes, (and then another revision or two) but hopefully I sufficiently addressed a murky plot point as mentioned by two of the three contest judges. I added some new scenes, tweaked some others, and generally added bits of dialogue or narrative throughout. It felt good, but was also very intensive and I was quite ready to be done with it by dinner time yesterday.

Now to get the week back on track--the change in my routine (drs appt) throws me out of kilter for a bit.

Glad you are healthy. Yup, cinnamon and honey can work wonders ... you should read up on it - and by the way, don't expect miracles overnight, it's a slow effect, but keep it up and in a few months you will feel different. There are also good effects with vinegar; research that too.
Love you,
