More found money!

March 1st, 2013 at 06:45 am

I found a $5 bill in the station this morning! I also found a penny last night, and on my walk this morning, I found a euro 5c piece. As I can't spend that, I won't count it as found money, but I'll keep it for curiosity's sake.

Last night my son brought over a black four-drawer file cabinet he doesn't want to haul to Florida. It looks brand new, and it actually looks great in my living room corner. Everyone kept saying, "Oh, you'll want to paint it, or throw a cloth over it, it's too stark." Nope. It looks great. My sons agreed, once it was set up.

I have papers stashed away everywhere, so it will be a long process to get it all organized, but I finally have the place to put them all! Honestly, a big file cabinet has been on my wish list for a long time, so this is a very happy windfall.

The fish continue to do well and provide an interesting focal point in the living room. Now I just need my rugs. I guess I'm going to have to call them again.

My visit to the dentist yesterday went great. They raved about how well I care for my gums. That has been an issue in the past, so I'm so glad I reversed the trend. Also, I have occasional twinges of pain that actually feel like they are within one of my crowns. After examining the x-ray, the dentist said there was no action needed unless the pain was bad (it isn't). There may be a crack in my tooth stub but it's not big enough to show. He said a root canal would be unwarranted. He is watching one of my molars for an eventual crown, but that, too, is not needed at this time. Then I got my free toothbrush and floss!

Got extra exercise yesterday, too, as the walk to the dentist is about 3/4 mile each way.

The walk to the station this morning was a bit of a challenge, since the temperature has dropped, and all the slush is ice. I slipped two times, but didn't fall. And I'm wearing boots with a very heavy tread. I just have to be super careful.

    Yeah for the new file cabinet. Smile I am a file cabinet junkie. Enjoy!

    Those file cabinets are quite expensive, too -- if it's the nice office-grade doubl hung ones. A big 4-drawer unit is several hundred dollars at least. I paid nearly $250 for a high quality 2-drawer file cabinet years ago.

    Then my husband's office was renovating and they were just giving away all these great filing cabinets! We took 3 or 4 of the tall 5 drawer models and have more storage than any human being could possibly need.

    Nice work!

    Yes, walk carefully. You don't want any medical issues because of a fall. Smile

    Not sure if they are office-grade. They originally came from Home Depot. They are certainly good enough for me, though!
