Weekly Wrap-up

I've been meaning, for quite a while now, to try doing a little weekly wrap-up post here at Joysweb.  Lately, though, I really haven't been doing anything interesting enough to need any wrapping.  But I've decided not to worry about that -- if I'm boring, so be it.  It's my blog and I'll bore if I want to!

My biggest thrill this week -- well, one of two big thrills -- is that I'm finally off all pain meds, after my all-summer-long dental ordeal (believe me, you don't wanta know any more about that).  Had my last root canal session this past week, and so far everything feels OK.

Haven't needed the Ibuprofen or the Tylenol for several days now, and I'm almost able to chew confidently on the left side of my mouth again.  How I've missed that!

The other big thrill was getting the news from M's dermatologist that his biopsy showed no signs of skin cancer.  He had a couple of moles removed during his regular checkup last week, and even though the doctor said they didn't look unusual and the test was just routine, biopsies always make me crazy nervous.  So, I was extremely relieved when he finally got the all-clear notice.  Of course, now I'm waiting for the bad news to be delivered -- I always expect disaster to follow hard on the heels of good news.

So it was a pretty good week.  Not spectacular, but pleasant.  On the other hand, the weather has been spectacular.

We even had a bit of rain on Thursday -- not enough to end the drought of course, but enough to perk up the garden and yard a bit. And yesterday, I got to spend some time pursuing one of my favorite pastimes -- book store browsing.  M and I had lunch out and then spent an hour or so in the local Half Price Books -- lovely.  I don't buy that many books anymore, and I hadn't entered an actual book store in months, so it was really a lot of fun.  Bought three books and talked myself out of several others.  M even came out with a book purchase of his own (very unusual these days).  I'd feel even better about all that if we'd been browsing in an independent book store rather than a member of a chain -- but there just aren't any independents within striking distance out here.  Which is kind of sad, but pretty typical now.

OK, that's a wrap, I guess.  I'm trying to get myself back into blogging after letting things slide for pretty much half a year now.  Also trying to break myself of the very addictive Pinterest habit -- I spend WAY too much time fiddling with my boards there.  So we'll see if I can keep this up.

More later.

  1. I'm glad that the medical news was good...and like you, I always wait for the other shoe to fall. Hopefully, that won't happen.

    Enjoy your week!
