Monday This and That

Hope is a roving gypsy
With laughter on her tongue,
And the blue sky and sunshine
Alone, can keep her young;
And year by year she lingers
Under a budding tree...

Good morning everyone.  It's another cool, wet morning here in Brooklyn.  Yesterday it was just plain nasty all day.  Picked up the things I needed at the market on Saturday because I just knew I wasn't going to venture out in that weather.  Don't think I'll be heading out today either.  No place to go and no money to spend. 

On that note, I hope you all had a joyful Beltane or May Day.  I wasn't into it this year.  It was too cold and dreary to, and my heart wasn't in it. I guess so much is going on right now, and the weather so blah. 

Well, the saga continues. Someone is upstairs. I don't know who. Last night someone came in. At first I thought it was  Mr. Leadfoot, but then I heard a toddler running about. My first reaction was "Oh no. They're back. Best prepare for a 5 am wake up", but that didn't happen. In fact I slept quietly until 6:30. They just got up a few minutes ago, and everyone, including the toddler seems quieter. Time will tell.  I really don't mind a toddler running about, I realize people have to live, just don't have her doing it at  5 am over my head.  Take her out in the living room.  Be considerate in your neighbors.

Well, I've decided to have my teeth done after the reunion, probably the end of May.  I just can't take it anymore.  Can't eat a lot of my favorite foods because they are too crunchy.  Can't even eat a salad.  And I'm tired of these darn gum infections and pain.  It's something that I have to have done. Can't put it off any longer. Not looking forward to losing my teeth.

Fortunately I found out I have insurance, and just for the heck of it I applied for instant credit when the bank teller asked since I was pre-approved, not expecting it to go through, so you can imagine my surprise when I was told that I was not only approved, but had a credit line of $10,500.  Not going to go crazy with it, I've been through that and cleaned up my credit,  but if necessary to get some really decent teeth, I'll pay for it.  You know how sometimes the dentist will give you crap if he is not being paid enough.  Sadly I have found this to be true and have the dentures home to prove it.  Never did wear them. No matter what, I've resigned myself to having a life.  Not a good quality of life for me right now. 

This week is my last week of school.  How fast the semester went!  I am in total disbelief that it is already over.  Once it warms up I'll be spending a lot of time in the park.  There will be a few summer classes available, hopefully some that peak my interest.  I do know that the comparative religion class I enjoy so much will have 4 summer sessions.  

Have a good one.
