Even though I donít make serious resolutions any more, I still feel as if the start of the new year (or the new month, or the new week, for that matter) is as good a time as any to make changes. Try as I might, though, I couldnít think of any bad habits I wanted to break. Or, more to the point, any bad habits I thought I could break. So I settled for changing the color scheme here, and Iíll continue to eat too much cheese and watch too much TV.

The promises I really need to make to myself are to continue with the exercise program I started last summer, and the on-again, off-again eating regime that seems to be working to make me feel healthier. Iíve been doing pretty well with those, and I donít intend to lose any ground just because itís another year. Maybe I can do even better, but I certainly donít ďresolveĒ to do so. This morning, for example, I didnít work out at all. But tomorrow is another day, if not another year. And I did pretty much lay off the smoked cheddar today.

The Boss has kindly advised me that he has a major typing assignment for me to do on Thursday. Thatís one of the reasons I thought I should get some work done today. The other is: why not? I had a whole day with no reason to leave the house and an extra full to-do list, what with year-end and quarterly taxes and reports to get started on. Getting started being the hardest part of my job, I took advantage of the phone-free day to make that leap. Donít worry, though. I didnít overdo it. Getting stopped wasnít very hard today, either.

When I get a new toy, I play with it.

When I went to bed last night, I wouldnít have given a nickel for my chance to get any work done today. My left wrist was in such pain that I could feel it all the way up to my elbow. I couldnít lift anything with that hand, but even worse was trying to do anything that required twisting it or turning it. I thought Iíd be out of commission for days, but it was better when I got up this morning, and by late this afternoon the pain was completely gone.

And this is why I donít hold out any hope for help with the condition that causes the pain, whatever it is. The doctor didnít believe me when I told him about it, and I canít really blame him. If he did believe in the pain, he might have later been able to claim he cured me, but heís not allowed to take credit after pretty much dismissing me outright.
