I was awake until almost 5 a.m. and got up before 8. Here it is midnight and I haven’t stopped all day. I did computer stuff all morning and then started watering the lawn. It’s very dry here and they’re suggesting people water lawns to cut down on fire danger. Considering I live on a pretty busy street with lots of cars – many of them being driven by idiots as best I can tell – it seemed like a good idea.
Right after lunch I took off for the office and a list of errands. I popped in to wish Diana a Happy Birthday and take her present in.
I had a dentist’s appointment at 4 to get my two new caps. I’m still not completely satisfied with the color, but it’s more natural looking and I’m not sure what else to do. I miss Jeff Rayl – he was an exceptional dentist. Thank goodness he did all the work in my mouth that’s highly visible. It took about an hour to get the two caps on and I did not enjoy the experience.
Afterwards I went to dinner with Teresa and Julie. We went to Houlihans. I like the food, but they have no sense of timing. I told the waitress tonight – give me time to eat the salad – don’t put my order in right away. That worked well. But before I had half the soup eaten, my pasta had arrived and was getting cold. Must we all shove the food down our gullets as quickly as possible, without bothering to chew, or heaven forbid actually enjoy the meal?
