Out of Sync - Down and Dirty Lemon Zucchini Muffins
Nothing that was supposed to happen today happened today. I seem to be experiencing an annoying increase in palpitations, real rib-knockers, the type I haven't had in many years. I know what causes them - I have a tricuspid valve prolapse - and I know what to do about them - I have been faithfully taking a daily dose of propanalol, aka Inderal, since the early eighties - and it is rare indeed that the palpitations break through the beneficial effects of the medication. These are not life-threatening, at least I don't think they are, and by the way I have a little heart murmur as well, a souvenir from scarlet fever in the sixth grade, but they are annoying and they do knock me out. Which is why I still haven't crept downstairs to start my day, although it is embarrassingly late, and that totally precludes my pack-and-go visit to the office. Crap. Better luck Monday.
