I am busy following all my footsteps back since I entered the apartment. I went to the fridge to get cheese snacks I had stashed there when I got home. I found my car keys and no cheese...there was a lip balm and handful of mints where I put the car keys, which led me to the bedroom and the top right drawer where I put my pocket things from work. Lo and Behold! Cheese!!!!

Think I need a nap?
HEY! I got wine...you got cheese. COME ON OVER! {{{{{PF}}}}}

Good for you.

I recommend that people who do their own tax returns take it to a tax preparer once in a while, maybe once every five years. Sometimes the pros can find you stuff you didn't realize you could deduct or get a credit for. Of course, if you usually do your own taxes, you can check that the "pro" did a good job.

Shrek is doing great! I'll help do his dressing change tomorrow and see how it's coming along.

I think you need more than a nap. I would suggest that you and Shrek find a room for doubles and take a rest with him. Put a "Do Not Disturb" on the outside of the door.

No, not yet. I'm hoping it happens soon, he has a follow up with the surgeon Thursday next week.

Well, now's the time to stick in your diamonds, pearls, etc. that you don't want stolen. No gold or silver though, if you have to go through the metal detector at the airport.

So glad he's doing better! (sorry Shrek)

I thought metal detectors detected metals using magnetism. Gold and silver, to the best of my knowledge, not magnetic.

Ok, so PF can stick in all her gold and silver, along with the diamonds and pearls! Shrek may need a zipper installed. Not a bad idea.
