So, it looks like a significant percentage of the bonus books I mailed out a few months ago never made it to their destinations. I’m not sure exactly where they ended up, but now I don’t actually have enough copies on hand to replace all the missing ones. That’s pretty awesome! I’ll be sending out what I can next week, and the rest will have to go out in a few weeks. I’ll be ordering the replacements when I place my GSQ5 order, which could be as early as Monday. But more likely the Monday after.
In personal news, I went to see the doctor today for a routine checkup. I’m officially old now, because while I’m in practically perfect health — apparently regular exercise really is good for you, who knew? — my blood pressure is so high that it’s a wonder that blood isn’t squirting through my pores every time my heart beats. This means I will now be taking medication daily to prevent my heart from suddenly exploding if I accidentally eat a stray grain of salt. This, of course, is the first step to owning one of those little seven-chamber plastic pill cases with drugs neatly sorted in advance for each day of the week. It’s so exciting to be a grownup.
I’m pretty baffled about why I have such dangerously high blood pressure. You’d think the fact that I spend every waking moment of my life working hard and anxious about finances, responsibilities, and obligations would mean I’d be too exhausted to be tense.
