Off My Meds

One thing traveling does is put you off your routine. I got home late Tuesday night. Friday morning, while doing my morning routine, I realized, "I haven't taken my blood pressure medication for two days!" I take a couple of medications every morning, plus another (Niaspan, to raise my too-low cholesterol levels) at night. I did not miss any doses while traveling, even on the days when it was into the hotel for only one night at the beginning and end of the trip, but for some reason, when I got home, I simply forgot about them. No wonder my BP (which I do check each morning) was up about 10/5.

Anyway, I'm back on the routine. This weekend -- the first since 1988 that I haven't been on the road over Labor Day Weekend -- is for rest, unpacking, and getting to the piled up jobs that accumulated during Worldcon, including reviewing the Minutes of the Business Meeting so we can get them published relatively quickly.
