Just Right

Phewww!  This has been a busy and full weekend.  I got a call back on Thursday from ARMS just letting me know that they had received my CD1 call and to continue taking my Estrace twice per day until the 24th at which time I will take it 3 times per day.  Friday, Handsome went to happy hour but I was tired from work and didn't want to make the drive so I just went home and vegged on the couch. 

Saturday I got up fairly early for my 3rd acupuncture appointment.  I was back with Dr. Dana and I enjoy it much more with her.  This time she put needles in between the ball of my foot and the arch.  The feet needles are always the worst.  Then in my calves, the insides of my arms, between my eyes, 3 in my stomach, and one in each ear in the upper lobe - those weren't very fun either.  She also talked to me about taking herbs and trying a smokeless herb stick which I am trying.  After my acupuncture treatment I met up with Handsome at the Biltmore fashion park and we had lunch at Zinburger.  We stopped by the Meat Shop on our way home to pick up some venison for the stew soup Handsome was going to make.  According to Dr. Dana I am cold and need more warming food - both stew/soups and venison are recommended so I killed two birds with one stone.  It will feed us for about 4 days which makes meal planning easier as well. 

Our bed is a king size and had wooden supports in the middle of the support slats.  Unfortunately when Bremen gets excited he jumps on and off the bed pushing it across the floor and the supports bend and fall.  The other night in bed one must have been on the edge and it went out.  The bed kind of dropped and had a sway in the middle.  My husband propped it back up but we knew we needed a permanent solution that couldn't fall over.  We decide to build a box that we could slide under the slats and a box could not slide and fall over.  Once we were done building it and we slid it into place the bed feels much more solid now and the added friction has made the bed more stable against Bremen as well. 

While we were cleaning up from our little construction project the air conditioning guy came out and serviced our air conditioner.  He worked hard and Handsome decided on some extra services cleaning the coils, he worked very hard.  Mean while I finally got the photos up from my photo project.  These were all put up with Command Picture Hanging Strips.  They were a little thick for the frames I got at Ikea but I cut them in half lengthwise and put them up.  Much easier than nailing holes and such.  Here it is all finished!
(sorry for the glare)

I also took some time to put up my new wall hanging system that i had gotten at The Container Store, the wall anchors they gave me would just spin in the dry wall when I tried inserting the screws, I tried different wall anchors but they all kept spinning until I use the screw kind.  By that time the holes were too big so Handsome patched them and I used the screw-in wall anchors above the old holes.  I would have just left the holes, after all the wall file would have covered them up but Handsome wanted to do t right so he patched them.  Looks pretty good doesn't it ?  Now I just have to decide on a chair and maybe some art work above the boxes.  ttyl

Goldilocks and the Three Bears
"After she'd eaten the three bears' breakfasts she decided she was feeling a little tired. So, she walked into the living room where she saw three chairs. Goldilocks sat in the first chair to rest her feet.
"This chair is too big!" she exclaimed.
So she sat in the second chair.
"This chair is too big, too!" she whined.
So she tried the last and smallest chair.
"Ahhh, this chair is just right," she sighed. "
