I went to the dentist today. I’ve been going every three months for maybe a year. Kids, this is what happens if you don’t go for 20 years. But today they said I could start going every four months instead of three. Woohoo! They set up my next appointment and it ended up being the same day we leave for Atlanta. Well, that’s not going to work so I had them make it for the week before. I’m so close now that I actually have to start looking at the calendar when I make appointments! Exciting. Then I went grocery shopping and had a mild moment of panic where I bought one of everything I love that I could find. Ya know, in case I don’t get to eat it for six months next year. It was a disaster.
Now we are celebrating the first cold week in Houston by using the fireplace. I’m not sure why we even have one since we rarely get to use it but it is awfully nice when we do.
I like to make my own fire starters. They’re cardboard egg carton pods filled with sawdust and leftover candle wax. They last forever but I’m out of them. So I tried the popular petroleum jelly coated cotton balls for the first time. They have a good flame and last a while but they’re kinda gross.
Vaseline’s so… greasy. Next time I’m out of my regular ones I think I’ll try wax soaked cotton facial pads. I hear those are nice too.
