After watching some organizing podcasts and being totally frustrated with our bathroom cabinets I decided to organize and purge. A trip to the Dollar Tree and $7.00 spent and I'm really happy with the results. This is my side of the bathroom vanity.
Here is Dennis' side. Much less "stuff" and the cleaning products are in there too! Guys just don't seem to collect as much do they? Although to be fair, that shoebox under my side on the left has travel size toiletries that we've picked up on trips and at Bath and Bodyworks. I use them in my purse, knitting bags, etc. I have a weakness for nice smelling lotions.
Chloe is shedding her summer coat. I put a TV remote next to this pile of hair I brushed this morning so you could get an idea of how much hair she's losing. I have done this every day this week. I don't know how she isn't completely bald! She's so good though. It must feel wonderful to be brushed and get all of this hair off of her. Yuck! I love my dog utterly and completely, but I don't like the shedding at all.
I had my endoscopy done on Monday morning. It was a little rough. I think I've told you before that I have never been sick to my stomach in well over 40 years except for when my heart stopped. Mandy tells me that's not unusual for that to happen. Other than that, I really don't remember the last time. It was long, long before I married Dennis. Well, I was sick, sick, sick when I came out of the anesthesia. They removed several polyps in my esophagus and have sent them off for testing. Otherwise I think everything is okay. They fiddled with my meds though while I was there and I've had chest pain off and on since Monday. Today is better so I'm hopeful that all is on the upswing. Sometimes it seems like nothing goes easy for me and I'm not sure why. I have my semi-annual visit with the cardiologist on Tuesday so if anything is still off, I'm sure he will catch it.
We've had a gray and gloomy week of rain that washed all of the snow away. I kind of like it. I've been huddled inside, getting some cleaning done, knitting on my mystery project and watching Hallmark Christmas movies. Yes, I'm one of those. I love the corniness of the movies. With all of the yuck in the world, the innocence and guaranteed happy endings is a bright spot and an escape.
I have two Knit Picks orders on the way. Yes, I said two orders. Looking at the photos above, it sure doesn't look like I need more yarn does it? I plan to make lots of socks though and I want to re-knit Taci's new pattern with some nicer DK yarn than what I used for the first one. One order should be here tomorrow and the other next Monday so I'll have some yarn goodness to show you next week. It's my Christmas present so I don't feel too bad.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and are staying warm wherever you may be.
