IT'S NOT EASY BEING A SOUTHERN BELLE-EVEN AFTER YEARS OF PRACTICE!

ALIVE & KICKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"The rumors of my early demise have been greatly exaggerated." Mark Twain. OK-I'm FINE and going 90 to nothing-a little embarrassed from all of the excitement, but REALLY, I am fine. As previously discussed, I like to be in control and having a doctor calling the shots-is not in my scope of being in control. I am still a flabbergasted at Sunday, but I am in high gear-as usual-working on the kitchen project! Thanks for your concern. I do have a new best friend that I will have right by my side-my epi pen. I am counting on the fact that this will never reoccur, but better safe than sorry.

I just finished cleaning the kitchen floor -thoroughly-in anticipation of the final sealing tomorrow. The kitchen molding was finished today and looks great. The stove and new frig were delivered and are ready to slip into their slots. The granite man has called (after my 3rd inquiry) and they will be here Friday. The painter came by yesterday and he will be here next week. OK-yesterday was 2 weeks since the demolition-so we are not in our remodeled kitchen in 2 weeks-but I am not unhappy with the progress. I bought our new dishwasher (QUIET MODEL) today and it will be delivered Thursday. Hopefully I will be able to get the plumber and electrician back in next week and be back in business then. I don't need paint on the walls to cook-so I will be happy with just a functioning kitchen again.

Mel & I ran 5 miles this AM. It was hot & humid LA weather, which always slows us down, but still kept an 11 minute pace-even with all that has transpired this week. I was satisfied with that!
