|Bibi with Margarine aka Sparkles aka Sparklette|
Tuesday Rob did something horrible to me. He made a dental appointment for the two of us. I hate seeing dentists, being emotionally scarred when, at the age of six, I had a tooth drilled without the benefit of Novocain. I assume they simply didn’t give children Novocain back then. If they did then I can only assume that Orin Scrivello D.D.S. was my dentist. I left the dentist’s office with a choice: spend $40 on a tooth extraction or I could replace a broken crown will cost $600 or more (and more likely more).
Guess which one I’m going to do.

beneath Rob's outstretched feet. She was obviously
comfortable but it looked really peculiar.
Who knew Bibi would be so upset she didn’t get to spend more time with us that, after they picked up the uniforms, she and Erin came by again? Which is how Rob and I had a fashion show as well as some pleasant (wonderful even) company. We played a board game. We talked and just had a lovely and love filled afternoon. So what if their return interrupted my working out? I would stop and drop everything for family visits!
Saturday Kanika and I walked 3 miles. It was cooler than it has been and we had plenty of things to catch up on. She’d gone to visit her sister and I recommended the frozen yogurt to her. We both successfully resisted the new cupcake place that opened not far from the parking lot where everyone goes. We apparently were not the only ones to realize that the weather was cooler than it has been; I can’t remember the last time I saw the trail where we occasionally walk so crowded. It was great!
Kanika and I are working our way through One Year to an Organized Life by Regina Leeds. We started in June and, to be honest, so far we haven’t really done anything “meaty.” Each chapter is divided into themes and June’s theme was travel with July’s focus was on getting your address book and photographs organized. Next month? Well, August is all about moving. I looked at the table of contents and earlier in the year we would have tackled rooms and such but that’s okay. We’re planning on working our way through to the end of the book and back around to the beginning.
