Somehow the Week Ran Away
I had the best intentions to post all this week, but somehow the week ran away. The week at work wasn't too bad, but two issues seemed to soak up extra time. My dishwasher has washed its last dish and that precipitated some visits by my super. I can't complain at all about this. For the last few years I've been saying "When the dishwasher finally goes..." knowing that the day was coming and it arrived on February 2, 2010. I'll start thinking about a replacement when I have a better sense how much Issue #2 will cost. In the meantime, I'm going to be washing my dishes by hand.
Issue #2 is my on-going dental issue. I had to chuckle when I left the office today. One of my friends at work called after me "We'll start praying." My teeth have been the focus of much prayer over the years, for which I am very appreciative. After an emergency visit this afternoon I learned one of the implants I have is coming out. Not an emergency, but it needs to fixed very soon. I have an appointment on Monday afternoon with the oral surgeon. My dentist, who is so nice, assures me it's relatively minor and that this oral surgeon works only on implants and is very accustomed to these issues.
Happily, I won't have much time to ponder either of these issues this weekend. I'm spending the weekend in Providence with my cousins. It's supposed to be snowy, but we're New Englanders and I couldn't let a little -- I hope it's only a little -- snow stop a long planned visit to favorite family in a favorite city. Hope to be back with pictures next week.
Thanks, all, for the comments on "French White." I enjoyed seeing everyone's answers. The slippers I wrote about in December were on my "French White" list. I also bought what I call "The Cadillac of Bath Mats" in January. I replaced my very well worn bath mat with the fluffiest one imaginable and I love it. The price was quite modest, but it seemed more than one should spend on a bath mat. There is no logic here and I know it and I am so glad I "splurged" on this cozy gift to me.
Wishes for a wonderful weekend!
