A few weeks ago my toaster croaked. There was smoke and there were sparks - scared the bejeebies out of me! Since then I have been debating on whether or not I will replace it. I have a tiny kitchen and space is definitely at a premium. This is an old picture from when I first bought my house.
Actually the picture below this is from when I first bought the house. The picture above is after hours (and hours) of work by my sister and her friend. What a difference paint makes!
Making toast in the oven can be done, but it is NOT super convenient...and that may be a good thing for me.
I am by no means suggesting that it is a complete ordeal to make toast in the oven, However, I admit by the time, I have waited for the oven to heat up and kept a vigilant eye on my toast to prevent burning, my general laziness and impatience have kicked in. I am much less likely to make batch and after batch.
For my own dietary security, I think I will try to forego the toaster for now. And I will be fine.
Speaking of being fine, I had my oral surgery on Tuesday. I am such a baby when it comes to doctors, procedures, etc. The growth/sore was completely removed. I wasn't really sweating this aspect, but I was happy to hear that the growth was not "suspicious." It was sent off to a lab in Michigan and we will know for sure in two weeks. In the meantime, the doctor left a gaping hole on the inside of my cheek. Although, he "lasered" it to control the bleeding it bled most of the day. Gauze is gross.
I used the frozen pea method to ice my mouth.
I planned one day off after the surgery. I went back to work this morning, but only lasted 2 hours. It is amazing what a "small" trauma and some pain meds can do to your overall energy. Hoping tomorrow will be more successful (and productive). Seeing the heap of work on my desk this morning scared me a little.
National Dog Day was spent laying in bed with this goofy little hound.
This weekend my friend talked me into taking a Pilates Barre class with her. Not really sure what to expect but I will give it a whirl. What do you have planned for this weekend?
