Prin, what a last straw that was! Indeed, good thing it wasn't worse, but sorry you all had to burn through that last vestige of hope in that way. Yay for the ultimate outcome, though, for all creatures involved. Sounds ideal for everyone.
Here were are on a cold Monday morning again, too soon. DH just left for a long day trip. I'm getting ready for my Monday Worcester chores, and then will return to meet the cable guy, again. Things seem relatively OK, but they "reviewed our current features" and found that for $10 LESS a month we can get more channels and faster speed. He's bringing out a new modem (free to borrow).
Will be making plans with trips' dad to have lunch as last week's fell through on his end due to work. I think this week looks more promising.
I'm strongly considering stopping on the way at the Natick Mall and getting a Vitamix. I tax our blender every day with the smoothie I make DH, and it's showing signs of wear the last one did right before it croaked. I figure they are $$$, but so is going through cheaper ones that don't handle our regular usage. I'll think more about it and I'm sure I'll about have a stroke at the register if I do it, but they are awesome and we do have a legitimate need for something a lot more capable than we have...sounds like I've made my decision, doesn't it?!
Looks cold out...can't wait for the warmup.
Speaking of which, Pingo, you picked a great week to be gone and day to return!!! We've gone through about 3 times the wood as usual in the last week. I feel for anyone paying for it.
OK, gotta kick things into high gear and get outta here for the morning.
