This Week

Yesterday I was convinced that it was Saturday. Even when I realized it wasn’t, I just couldn’t shake that feeling. Ever have one of those days? It is one reason this week’s ‘This Week’ post is a day late. Not that it really matters. It’s not like my blogging pals are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for me to blog. Amiright?

We are in the last week of our moving period and you are right if you guessed that it’s nutso around here. Things are picking up speed and getting faster and faster by the minute. Most of our things are packed up, there’s hardly any food in the house, we have aches and pains, the cats are confused and we’re chomping at the bit. On Tuesday we take possession of our new home and a few days after that this house is no longer ours. And we have paperwork to prove it. Thursday we went to see our lawyer and he had gazillions of documents for us to sign. Okay, I’m exaggerating. But only by a gazillion or two.

It’s amazing how little you can live with. Now that our stuff is boxed up, we’ve discovered that we need very few things to get through the day. And we haven’t missed a thing. When we start unpacking in our new place, there’ll be a lot more crap stuff donated. Living a streamlined life is great. I feel somehow...I dunno...liberated.

Remember when I wrote about going to the dentist last week to get my teeth cleaned? Well, I did go. And it wasn’t a very pleasant visit. My regular dental hygienist is on maternity leave and they scheduled me with a young woman that I’d never dealt with before. I think she stabbed my gums about 6,329 times. I know this because I counted. Some dental hygienists have a gentle touch. This isn’t one of them. When she finished stabbing my gums cleaning my teeth, she told me to rinse with water. I did. And out came a mouth full of blood. I had to rinse four times before the water was clear. Yeah. My gums were sore for days. This is one reason why people start being afraid of going to the dentist.

That’s it for now. Today I’ll be spending the day packing up loose ends. And because this post should have been written and shared yesterday, I’ll be convinced that it’s Friday! First world problems...

Happy weekend, everyone.

Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone. How are you all doing? And how was your weekend? We got a big dump of snow yesterday and it really looks like winter out there. No big deal. We've had it pretty easy up until now. It's been pretty mild and mostly dry.

Saturday we went out for dinner to one of our favourite places in the downtown area. Our previous visits have always been during the warmer months and we've always sat outside on their terrace. This is the first time we've eaten indoors and it's a lot bigger than I imagined. Anyhow, we wanted to visit one last time before we leave Kingston. And we went to celebrate my 52nd birthday. I'm another year older and hopefully a little bit wiser.

Anyhow, that's that. Now here's some funny stuff for you.

Have a great week ahead!
