The boys get anxious right before school starts. Nate gets hyper (interrupts more, stuff like that), and Aaron gets a bit short, usually slowly leading up to a meltdown. The meltdown came yesterday. They’ll be fine by the third day of school or so. Parents, please remember that the start of a new school year is stressful for the kids, too. Hang in there, guys.

The Red Cross refused me as a blood donor yesterday because my blood pressure check was high. This has happened nearly as long as I’ve been donating. The solution is to check me again in a few minutes, and that reading will be fine. Only, the Red Cross won’t do that anymore. LifeSouth will, so I guess I donate with them now. Red Cross, this is a silly policy, and I suspect it will cost you a lot of money.
This is my first 60,000-step week. I’m on track to get there.
Longtime Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos has sued the band, claiming he’s not been paid money he’s owed. Figure it out and get it settled, guys. This certainly would be an unfortunate way for such a great band to go out.
