Putting my feet up after a very, very busy morning.

Did three loads of laundry of which two made it to the clothesline outside. Cleaned both bathrooms, vacuumed the whole house, wet mopped the bathrooms, along with the kitchen and utility room, made two baguettes for tonight's supper, made and assembled a big pan of lasagna (also for tonight), glued and clamped a part of some lattice outside that needed some repair, spray painted a three-person deacon's bench, ran the dishwasher and emptied it after it finished, folded and put away all the laundry except for our bed linens, which are still on the line.

Thought about making an apple pie for tonight's dessert but I've run out of gas and Glenn just returned from having a tooth pulled, so I don't think he's going to be too interested in much more than our entree, veggie and bread tonight for supper. The pie can wait until tomorrow when the agenda promises to be much lighter.

Just finished my weekly banking and the semi-annual revision my budget to reflect current costs.

Himself had a doctor's appointment in the morning! We are not morning people, and yet we were up, out the door, and early to the doctor's office. I wanted to go since this was his first time meeting this specialist. As a long-time diabetic with family history issues, our PCP watches over Himself like a hawk. So today we spent time, lots of time, with a doctor who seems more concerned with helping his clients get healthy rather than meeting a quota number per hour. What a breath of fresh air! So far, this is the second endocrinologist he's met with (his first moved out of the area), and they've both been attentive, helpful, and concerned. For what it's worth, I have trouble remembering "endocrinologist". When someone asks me what the doctor's specialty is, I always want to say "entomologist". Well, Himself does bug me sometimes.

I'm up coughing for the third night in a row. I guess if it doesn't improve I will have to go to the clinic in the morning.

The good part of it is I can work on TB's blanket I am crocheting him for Christmas while he is sleeping. I had to rip it out for the third time so am very far behind on it. The pattern is totally wrong so now I am just doing it my way and I think it will look really nice. Same effect, just better!

Not doing anything, just not going to work for a week.

Mammogram on Wednesday...

Staycations can be even better than vacations! So have a good time not going to work! Hope the Mammogram goes well - not a fun time.
