The Day I Have Been Dreading has Arrived

Many of our fears are tissue-paper-thin, and a single courageous step would carry us clear through them.

Good morning everyone.  Well, today is the big day, the day I have been dreading  My dentist appointment is this afternoon.  I am physically ill over this. Can't eat and didn't sleep. That's how much I fear the dentist.  Part of me keeps hoping that he'll tell me he wants me on a week of antibiodics first, but that only gives me another week to worry.  

And now my refrigerator is acting up.  The freezer is working fine, but the fridge itself gets cold, but not as cold as it should be. I had just bought a lot of yogurt since I won't be eating anything but soft foods.  I don't want to lose that.  Believe it or not, this is the second refrigerator in a month.  I seem to be cursed.  My last one was brand new when we moved here and the same thing happened....only even the freezer wasn't cold enough. Guess I had just gotten a dud.  Then the super found a working refrigerator downstairs.  It's not new, but I like it better than the other one.  But now, the same thing happened.  I'm cursed.  To make it worse, both times they went out the day after I did almost a month's worth of shopping.  All that meat and veggies.  Oh dear!!!

There is a building around the corner from my house that was demolished, and they are rebuilding something new and modern.  Fortunately, they had enough sense to save these Romans and Lion.  In fact, they left that wall standing and are melding it into the new building.  Thought I'd share these pictures as a closing today.  I totally love them.

Have a good one and please, keep me in your prayers.



  1. Best wishes at the dentist, Mary! And I hope your fridge gets replaced with a good one soon. Romans #2 and #3 are based on Medici tomb sculptures by Michelangelo but I don't recognize any of the other ones.

  2. Good luck. I hope it goes really well.
    And I am so glad the romans and the lion were saved.

  3. I am wishing your appointment goes smoothly and pain free! And also a fridge that lasts!!!

  4. Hi old friend....growing older seem to always have its challenges. Hope the fridge thing gets sorted out and your teeth remain where they should be...IN YOUR HEAD! LOL LOL LOL



  5. Hi Mary, just popping in to say I'm thinking of you. I hope the extractions went well and are healing up efficiently. I know it'll be soup for a little while though!
