My weight is where it was last year. Even the road trip didn't do me as much harm as the trip to Pittsburgh. My blood pressure is still bad, bad.
As my numb lip begins to heal, I sometimes wish it back. It appears there's a problem with one of my lower front teeth: when I can feel it I have a toothache. Ow. I may have to go in for this one, if it doesn't clear up. Merry Christmas!

Bernadette came over with Gareth so we could go to the SPCA booksale. I tried very hard to be good, but didn't really succeed. Besides some books for Gareth, I also got:
THE CHRISTMAS SWEATER, Glenn Beck CHRISTMAS TREASURY FAVORITE FAIRY TALES. This one has classic illustrations, and is just beautiful. THE DEALINGS OF DANIEL KESSERICH, Fritz Leiber S IS FOR SILENCE, Sue Grafton. (First I have to actually read P IS FOR PERIL, though!) PROBABILITY MOON, Nancy Kress CUSTARD'S LAST STAND, Tamar Myers DEATH TAKES PASSAGE, Sue Henry THE ATTORNEY, Steve Martini THE 6TH TARGET, James Patterson NATURE GIRL, Carl Hiassen
Oh, well. Rich had the baby and all was well till they came by the window and Bernadette waved at him. He wanted his Mommy then. After we finished with the books we looked at their Christmas thrift shop where Bernadette got some ornaments for her outdoor trees. Then we went to Marie Callendar for lunch. Gareth had macaroni and cheese and some bread, and was charming again.
Back at the house I left the room for a minute and when I got back, he had Brobee upside down and singing. I had no idea Brobee could do that. All we ever had Brobee do was ask if you'd dance with him. There's a button on one foot that Gareth discovered. The toy has a whole song-and-dance routine and teaches "the Brobee" dance, then finishes with "you're AWESOME!" Good thing the child knows how the toys work!
