Finally, we're able to slow down with the hospital, doctor, and "officialdom" appointments. Michael went to the dentist for a new crown yesterday and he claims this "is the last bloody time I'm going to the dentist". Hopefully, that won't be the case and he will need to return for at least his regular six-month cleanings for a while.
Michael quit working. It's truly amazing how vastly his mood has improved and he's sleeping much better at night. I even got an e-mail from him this morning at work, just like the Michael of old, asking about my day, sending me hugs, etc. Since Michael doesn't have to be in bed so early now, we watch movies together in the family room with Andrea and Tattoo Boy (if he's home). Last night we watched "Last Chance Harvey". Not a great film, but at least we're doing things together as a family again. I've missed that. So, dear ones, life is slowing down for the Howes. If all this draws us closer together - I can handle the loss of Michael's income. It'll be worth it.
After dinner last night, I got sort of restless and felt like there was SOMETHING I should be doing. (Ever get like that?) So, I found the gift card for a pedicure and manicure Tattoo Boy gave me for Christmas and used it. I'd never had a pedicure before and it was lovely. Talk about a de-stressor! I could easily get hooked on that kind of luxury every couple of weeks.
Nothing planned for the weekend except a Stash Pot Pie class at Best Friends quilt shop. I've been a SPP drop out since December. Hoping to get some sewing done on my boss' quilt. I just have the nine-patches to complete. The autograph patches are here at the office and I'm collecting signatures a couple each day - just whenever I see people. Need to be careful to do this when the boss is out. I need to figure out what quilt to donate to the United Way raffle this year - that's not far off.
Jill informed me that I made the "cut" for the Bonnie Hunter classes in Indianapolis next month. I'll start "collecting" what I need for those classes this weekend too!
