weekend recap

Good morning.
Well, the weekend ended as it began, I was in a de-cluttering frenzy. I cleaned out the medicine cabinet, under the sink, under the kitchen sink, the laundry room, the pantry, more drawers, and even got Craig caught up in it. When all was said and done, I had 7 garbage bags full of trash.  :-)
In other news, I went to the doctor about my lump on my eye lid, and as I expected, he referred  me to Lansing Ophthalmology where I have a 'consultation' next Monday. I already suspect what he'll say. I need it drained to make sure it's nothing, and he'll set up another appointment for that. That's how these doctors work. So I have to pay for 2 office appointments before anything is done. I couldn't go directly to Lansing Ophthalmology because my insurance says I need a referral. I guess that's to make sure it's necessary, but I was pretty sure, my doctor couldn't do anything about it. Oh well.
In other news......
I lost Internet connection yesterday afternoon. So I did the usual routine before calling tech support. Recycle the modem, recycle the router, restart the puter. Nothing changed, so a call to tech support. Surprisingly, I got a real person in just a couple of minutes.  :-)   She did the thing on her end to make sure my modem was getting a connection, then she had me recycle the modem and router in the reverse order. With no change, she had me disconnect the router and go directly from the modem to the puter. Bingo! My connection was back. So that means a bad router. I probably should have done that before I called. Anyway, so I'll need to get a new router this next weekend.
And I haven't heard anything yet on Craig's Honda. My mechanic knows it's not my primary car, so probably working on other more urgent stuff. No big deal, but curious as to what he finds.
And the weather has been unbelievable for this time of year. So far, only 2 storms with substantial snow. This week, the day temps are expected to be around 40. That's about 20 degrees warmer than normal. I'm loving it!
Of course, we still have all of February, and most of March, but so far, so good.  :-)
And we had left-over turkey for dinner as an open faced sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy with a side of honey-ginger carrots.  And for dinner tonight, more left-over turkey, and tomorrow, left-over mushroom lasagna.  :-)
And finally, it's now time to go back to work.  :-(
It's not looking real busy this week, but we'll see how the phone goes.....


  1. Good luck on the eye thing. Hopefully the doc can do what's needed on the same visit.

  2. Hope it all goes well. Have a great week!
