A New Routine

And of course my posting again has slacked. Raise you hand if you are shocked.

Finally got around to getting life insurance. Seriously should have done that 2.5 years ago before Grace was born. (Side note: if you have kids, and they depend on your income, do this as soon as you can.) During the course of everything they did some quick medical work, and turns out, I have high cholesterol. So I've got that going for me.

Now, this shouldn't have been a huge surprise to me. The last blood work I had done, back in 2006 or so, showed it to be slightly high and the doctor told me to watch my diet. Seeing as I was eating fast food nearly every day, I chalked it up to that. (I had some not so great lunch habits during my last year in Austin.) I haven't been to primary care physician since then.

Does anyone my age have a primary care physician? I haven't gotten around to finding one in New Orleans because I just haven't seen the need. At this point my daughter's pediatrician likely knows more about my health/stress than anyone. I'm finding health care to be more confusing than usual lately.

All of this was a long lead up to say, I've decided to start exercising. Went for a 30 minute walk today. Used listening to All Things Considered on my phone as a bride. Here's hoping this new idea becomes more of a routine than the blogging has.
