* We bought the most gorgeous new front door. It took a long time to find exactly what I wanted. After months of looking, Chris ordered it for me on Mother's Day, a gift of sorts. I was so excited. It took more than 2 weeks to arrive which honestly seemed like forever. It arrived and it's not correct. There is a 2-inch perimeter around the door that is BRIGHT white composite. The door is a cherry wood finish with wrought iron. The white is like a H E L L O new door! No stain or paint will adhere to it so it's going back. And so we begin again.
* I went to the dentist for my 6-month cleaning which is something I look forward to. My dentist is 45 minutes away and they have massaging chairs. That means I get to drive for an hour and a half by myself in the car and I get to sit for nearly an hour in a massage chair. Doesn't that sound heavenly? Anyway, the dentist said, "I thought we put a crown on this wisdom tooth?" as he flips through my records. I said, "You did, back in February." He looks again and says, "It's not there. You don't remember it falling out?" Um, no, I don't. Since I've had a root canal there I don't feel anything and since it's my wisdom tooth it's so far back there I just didn't know. He said, "You must have swallowed it." I said, "Damn, that was one expensive meal." I go back in a few weeks for another.
* The last day of school is on Friday. The kids will be going to a different school next year and W will be in kindergarten and D will be in 1st grade. Those are two huge things for me to adjust to and I'm resistant to both things happening. As with all the other milestones thus far, I don't have a choice and I'll come around eventually. This summer will be full of karate and swim lessons and bike riding and fighting and whining and complaining but I'm dreading it much less this year than I was last year. Ages 2, 4, and 6 are by far the most challenging thus far but there are some advantages, too. Last summer having a 1, 3, and 5 year old sucked pretty much all the way around. This year we're ready to all have fun together.
