More fireworks & a trip to the doctor

July 5th, 2006 at 08:58 pm

Well, my neighbors haven't run out of fireworks yet! They were shooting them off tonight, so I went over and asked them to stop, as they were going off right under my bedroom window and I had to get up early. They said "Okay." Now I can't sleep! I think I'm just too wound up.

I went to the doctor today and he gave me samples (about a month's worth) of a new cholesterol-lowering drug, Zetia. If I decide to go with it, it's more expensive than lovastatin, but I've been bothered by gas lately and lovastatin may be the culprit. We'll see how it goes.

He was very pleased that I've lost about 15 pounds since the last time I was there. That inspired me to set some new limits -- I've decided to cut out between-meal snacks and limit myself to one dessert a day. Yes, I've been eating more than one dessert a day! I'm a sugar-holic.

What I did today to save money:

Walked to the gym instead of driving.
Took soup, crackers, yogurt and nuts to work for lunch.
Collected more rocks for my yard.
And of course, got free drug samples.

I spent $32 on gas.
