First Monday

January 5th, 2015 at 09:00 am

Well, the new mattress & box spring arrived, and I slept like a princess last night! By that I mean, it's so much higher than the old one that I feel like I'm sleeping on a throne. I like it, though, and the mattress feels really good. The cats are a bit unhappy that they have to jump higher. They are elderly cats.

I had time for my haircut, too, and I only paid $3 for the tip. I still have one more free haircut to go on the gift card I bought in the fall.

I finally got hold of someone at Comcast and they will mail me the HD cable box I need. The bad news is that my service will increase by $9 a month. I hope the new picture will make me feel like it's worth it.

I pulverized what was left of my temporary crown yesterday while eating a mini chocolate bar. (That'll teach me!) It's only three days till my dentist appointment so I'm just going to hold out. Luckily, it is not painful.

I drove today to avoid the cold, but I had to clean off the car, so I don't know if I saved much in the misery department. I also had a bunch of stuff to tote, so it was just as well I had the car. On the way, I spotted a station with gas below $2! You never see that in Chicago! I still have 3/4 of a tank, but I'm tempted to top it off on the way home.

Going to grocery shop on the way home as well, and will buy some quarters for laundry, which is stacking up.

First day of work feels not so bad, though I did have to deal with a non-functioning computer. I'm using my "old" computer now, which, luckily, they hadn't carted away yet!

    We bought a new bed last year that was a bit higher than our old one and our older arthritic dog couldn't jump up any more. We actually bought a padded-top bench to put at the foot of the bed for the singular purpose of helping her jump up.

    The things we do for our animals...

    Have you redeemed your stickers? I still have an envelope with 40 in it. I can drop it off tomorrow. Just got side-tracked with life before Xmas, and I am seeing my cousin in Elmhurst tomorrow (new baby is now getting to be an old baby)!
    Let me know!!

    I haven't, Laura! Tomorrow is the last day to redeem them. If you will be in Elmhurst I'd really appreciate getting 40 extra stamps! Thank you! Email me privately if you're not sure where to come.

    I was going to ask you if you put a pea under you mattress, but who would want a smashed pea in their new bedding! Glad the new mattress has been dreamy!

    BuckyBadger's advice about the bench is great. Your post made me think about those old commercials for the pet stairs. Maybe they still have those commercials, I just haven't seen one in years!

    Hi CB, I am going to leave DG at 10 and should be to you by 10:30. I will send you an email too! Thanks! laura

    I would put something at the end of the bed if there were room for it! I have a very small bedroom. There is a rocking chair beside the bed that helps, but my male cat won't let the female jump on it. It's HIS territory. Smile

    When Kari was recovering from her spaying surgery I put several different height boxes upside down beside my bed - it took her about an hour to figure out they were meant as steps. Smile
