What I Did to Stimulate the Economy Yesterday & Today: May 5 & 6, 2009

Of course I carried out my patriotic duty of stimulating the economy yesterday and today, what about you?

Yesterday marked the day that I officially became old. I had a follow up with the doctor through the new County clinic and while he wasn't concerned with the fact my blood pressure has shot up 20 points in 10 days, he was somewhat concerned with my cholesterol which is borderline bad. Rather than prescribe medication he told me to take fish oil and red wheat yeast. Silly me, I thought I had to take shots of fish oil and was happy to learn it comes in a nice pill format.

It's not that I'm now taking these supplements that's making me feel old but that I purchased a pill box to take them to work. *sigh* Suppose it's time to grow up. Here's a run down of my patriotic efforts:

900th Post - It's About Chia Obama

I'm really enjoying watching Determined Chia Obama grow. As you may recall, I received him as a birthday gift from LB last week. I've been tracking his progress each day over on Twitter via TwitPic. I'm up to day 6 and here are links to the images so you can check out his progress, too.

And happy 900th blog post to me! One thousandth post, here I come! I've also launched SoloTravelGirl.com. Not much is over there but figure everything needs a starting point so I'm just jumping in and building groovy content when possible. I plan to get into a regular posting schedule and will have an official launch later this summer, maybe I can coordinate it with the launch of To Japan with Love: A Travel Guide for the Connoisseur (To Asia with Love), I have at least a couple of stories in the book. Honestly though, I'm afraid with the current economic climate and how the project has been pushed back for three years that it's not going to happen. Fingers crossed!

Here are the six days of Chia Obama, enjoy!
