Friday, November 13th, I had 2.25 hours of lovely oral surgery. I took off from work thru this coming Tuesday. I probably did not need to take the extra day, but this is a nice stay-cation. I have plenty of food, beverage, pain medication, DVD movies, books, quilting, and knitting to keep entertained. Truth to tell - I enjoy being in my apartment, it is soothing and a peaceful place, and if not too cold out, I can take a walk by Lake Michigan.

Truly, I love my simple, peaceful, life of contentment.

I've had my laptop a month now and am so glad it is in my life now.

Thank you all, so much, for being so kind, generous and patient with me.
You are, indeed, deeply appreciated.

Peace,  Carol
