the lack of an engine has left our car in an unusable condition. and the replacing of the engine has caused it to be at another location – you know, the garage. so, once again, i’m carless. and again michael’s gone. i know – i said he’d be here for 2 months. what i really meant was he’d be in thailand for 2 months. he’s free to travel hither and yon within the borders of the kingdom. and it’s really more 6 weeks instead of 2 months, but whatever.
i could use a trip to the grocery store – there are very few remnants left from junk food weekend and it might not hurt to serve up something not from a jar or a can. getting to the grocery store really isn’t such a big deal. it could be made so much easier if it would stop raining. but the rain keeps it cool and i do own an umbrella. and at some point i will make the trek.
and there’s a possibly/maybe dinner gathering at our house on thursday. dinner gatherings are something i rather enjoy, but that means all planning and arranging and gathering must be done sans car. not that i can’t plan without a car…
braces are a pain in the patootie. i think i may have mentioned this, but it bears repeating (cuz i’m a winer) – eating is difficult and they hurt.
right now i’m keeping myself afloat with the sweet memory of wisconsin cheese. saturday night i had some real wisconsin cheese. i didn’t realize how not great the cheese is here until i had the real stuff.
and if you’re scratching your head wondering how everything in this post fits together. you can stop. it doesn’t. i’m blaming it on the braces and the cheese fog.
