Dan and I went into town this afternoon. We hit up Home Depot to browse around and look at things we'll need for finishing the basement like laminate flooring, carpeting, etc. We returned a door handle that locked us into our bedroom (the unlock button didn't work) and picked up some Drywall plaster for Dan as well as a new jug of water for the water cooler, a plaster sanding sponge and some batteries. It was a complete zoo in Home Depot, so we didn't stay there long. After that we went to Zellers and picked up a few things there. Some snap lids for canning, a salad spinner and a big container for storing our lettuce from the garden inside so we can eat more of it. Then we went to the grocery store which was surprisingly less busy than I'd expected! It didn't take us too long there and then we were on our way home.

It was nice for me to be out of the house again, but it was surprising how slowly I found myself walking and how tired out I got in such a short amount of time. Normally those kinds of errands are what we'd run after a full day of work, today it was pretty much all I did all day and I'm exhausted now. I guess a week of laying around on the couch will do that to you!!

On the way home we stopped to get Friday's mail. Dan had Friday off, so we were just getting around to checking the mail today. In there was an envelope from the surgeon's office with an appointment card. I have a consultation on Monday July 17th at 9:00am. That's good news! I was starting to wonder if I'd have to go chasing the doctor down to get my referral. Not that I really want surgery...I just definitely don't want to have to go through what I did this week more than once if I can avoid it at all!! The nurse who has been seeing me all week thinks that it looks like it should come out. She said it's got the traits of an abscess which means that even though they've done the packing and encouraged it to heal from the inside out that likely inside there is still a cavity that will just start to fill again and cause another cyst. No thanks! She said the surgeon can remove the offending tissue and depending on how much he needs to remove he may be able to just stitch it up or I may have to go through this whole packing process again after the surgery.

I'm still needing to get my packing changed every day. The nurse will come to my house again tomorrow and then for Tuesday I will likely be setting up appointments at the nursing clinic in Peterborough so I can just go myself before/after my half day of work. I no longer need any kind of pain killer, not even tylenol when they're changing my packing, so I don't have to worry about driving. It doesn't even really hurt anymore when they change the packing, it just feels like someone pinching me lightly with tweezers or something. The swelling has almost completely disappeared as well, which is really helping with the comfort of standing and sitting. The nurse is really amazed at how quickly and nicely I'm healing up, and I'm really glad to hear that!!!

No plans for the rest of the weekend. I helped Dan to make 2 batches of strawberry jam this afternoon and we've got one more batch to make tomorrow, but we ran out of sugar today. Dumb, I don't know why I didn't just buy two bags to start with!!! Oh well.

Okay, by now you all had to have known it was coming. I disappeared for the weekend again. This time it wasn't entirely my fault though.
My Internet was down Friday through most of Sunday and today I was at my parents' house (I know...excuses excuses...) But I'm back now and I'll fill you in on the weekend! :)

Long weekend post here... )

Had a rather nice day today. Didn't do a whole lot since all the stores are closed, but I did go and get my car washed and take some pictures of it in case I do move to Toronto, I'll want to sell it and this way I have some pictures already developed.
Had Jody and his girlfriend and Dan and our friend Robin over for a "family" dinner tonight, was really nice. A little too much wine always makes things more fun. :)

I decided to leave work a couple minutes early today to try and get a seat on the train for the ride home. I did get a seat, however, the train that was supposed to leave 20 minutes before us left 3 minutes before us and it's an all-stops train (mine is normally express) so we got stuck behind that one all the way, took me almost twice as long as it normally does. So we finally get to my station, I hadn't minded the long ride especially since I was in no particular hurry and had a good book to read.
I get off the train and walk to my car. I was parked in the last spot in the row and someone had "invented" a spot beside me leaving me literally about 6" to get my door open and get in my car. Wasn't going to happen. So I stood there and waited for about 5 min figuring that maybe the owner was on the same train as I was. I gave up and got in the passenger side and climbed over (yes, I drive standard so this was quite the feat!). After much struggling I'm now sweating, so I unroll my window and proceed to back out of my spot. I'm just about to switch it to Drive and pull away when I notice this big tart wearing the J-Lo 70's glasses giving me a dirty look. Here's our conversation (no word of a lie):
Her: You stupid jerk, you nearly hit my car backing out!
I think about saying nothing, but this girl is the last straw...
Me: You shouldn't have parked so close to me, you left me no room to get in my car!
Her: Yeah, well you should be more careful next time!
Me: You should park in a real spot next time instead of on the end of the row...
(lame, I know, I wish I'd had a better comeback)
Her: Fuck You!

I rolled up my window and drove off. What a way to put someone in a bad mood!!

Well...I think I managed to cram my summer holidays into a four and a half day weekend...and I covered just about all the bases.
Stayed in a cottage, swam in a lake, took in an air show, a few concerts, hung out with friends/family, took a trip or two down memory lane, went to Science North, to the movies, the midway, got a sunburn, is there anything more to summer holidays? I think not!
I'm rather proud of myself, but wish I were still's making being at work today rather difficult.
It's Thursday again tomorrow did that happen so quickly? Oh well. I think it will be alright this week.
