August 30, 2012


Twice now we've found this little guy curled up on our deck. We've been gentle as we've stepped outside but he quickly departs, walking along the fence to the adjoining yard behind us. I can't help but enjoy his visits and hope we'll make friends.


I had to go to the dentist yesterday to get fitted for yet another new night guard. I already cracked my new one! The office is right by the thrift store. I tried on all sorts of stuff but none of it was perfect. I did end up getting the pants though. Very comfy and great for working in my crafts room. Only $3 so if I spill on them, it's no big deal.

I am trying to not invest in things that aren't 100% but it is challenging considering there is so little here to choose from.

I think spilling on crafts room pants should be the objective :)

It's a challenge to buy stuff that isn't 100% but sometimes have to do the best with whats available - and now you have 1 more pair so yay for that :)

I hope the dentist went okay!

I like that Shannon, the objective, that's awesome! And I agree. Dentist was fine. Had to get another mold done of my teeth. Bite plate should be in next week. Hope I don't chomp through that one in a few weeks. Must be part pitbull.

What a powerful jaw you have, Suzie! I hope things keep settling down so there can be more ease and relaxation.

You know, this may sound weird but it helped me a lot when Safina told me that it's perfectly normal to find it hard to find just-right pieces. For some reason it made me really get that it's not me and that it's worth it when I *do* find something.

I'm glad you found some crafty pants!

Wow, cute cat visitor! Looks right out of a Egyptian painting!
