We have had a Worldmark Timeshare for some time, and added a Mexican resort too, which we can book over into RCI. Holy crap. We got a free RCI week, which will be used in Vermont, we are going to Hawaii soon (Worldmark points from over a year ago). I got cracking on the weeks I had banked over to RCI, and now we have Tobago in 2013. And I called the Villa Group, booked Cancun (use it or lose it) and found a way to use my owner week coupled with 2013's week to go high season (winter) to Loreto.

Damn. Didn't touch the Worldmark points, going to use them to book airfare.
An embarrassment of riches. But who the hell wants to sit at home?

Good news all over.

And I am not being facetious!

I had another follow up on the hernia surgery, it looks good. I am still bloated with fluid, but I can go back to the pool, I can work out gently, and I can use my gazelle.

I am in a cancer research project through Huntsman Institute, they got my genetic test approved. I am negative for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, which means I am NOT at higher risk for breast and ovarian cancers. With all the cancer in the family, my risk is 20~30%, rather than the 10% for the general population. Much better than 50~80%, don't you think?

I have started using to track my nutrition and fitness. A very good new tool in my toolkit. Like the book Younger Next Year, it is helping me plan for my improved health and wellness.

I got back on the Wii. I haven't used my balance board for so long the batteries were dead. A metaphor for life.

Oral surgery on Monday, it will go well, I insist! You hear me, universe?

And Hawaii for my birthday, huzzah.

In other news, the shoot out in Ogden happened just a block over, diagonally on the other side of the church. I was in the basement, watching TV, and didn't hear a thing.
