According to Chrissie in Belgium, jobbigt is Swedish for a difficult, trying day. It’s a great word, thanks Chrissie! Any hints on pronunciation??
Picked up my dad’s new glasses yesterday and took them over to him at the nursing home. He put on the glasses, looked up and said, “I had no idea you were so good looking!” He really is funny and I really am lucky.
Filled up my pill boxes this afternoon. I know I’ve written about this before but I’m still astounded at what I take. Seems to be working though so – I’ll stick with it. I don’t see my physician until the end of October. My last visit was in August so it almost seems like a vacation.
And – knock on wood – I haven’t had to go back to the dentist in two whole weeks. I felt like I was living there for awhile.
Sarah – I think the eye doctor’s office is probably “grandfathered” as far as building codes go for ADA. It’s an older tri-level house w/ the office part in the basement. Once we got dad in the examining room, they did everything there, including the guy coming in w/ frames, etc… to fit dad’s new glasses. My dad has been seeing him for over 30 years and so, I feel I can’t switch him to a new eye doctor.
Amylia – gee, you weren’t too far from me when you were in Maine. And yes, griping on a blog is very good for my marriage. I read your post today – tuna salad on a waffle??? Ick!
Yes, that’s a bird clock on the wall. In the same room we have a bug clock and an Elvis clock. We have friends?? that send us a new one each year (there are many more in the basement). Recent mornings we’ve had turkeys in the yard that I watched as I sat at the computer. We also get to see foxes, deer, a bear (once) and a moose (once).
