Otherwise it was mostly ...
That evening, while Dad was at the temple, I ran to Provo to buy a red and white rug. While there Ben called me with an offer of Curry! He said since the recipe uses full cans if stuff it always makes more than they can eat. Lucky me!! Yum.
Wednesday morning I left early to take Darby to her colonoscopy. When I got to her house, the white van lost its natural gastank's seal. Phwiiiisssshhhh. So then we took Darby's car.
Dad took up the slack, by getting the van to Lindon for repair. I dropped Darby in SLC then picked him up in Lindon and he dropped me at work, right on time and then switched out Darby's car for his at her house in Spanish before heading back to SLC to pick her up. Pretty slick, and then he even took her to lunch. Phew!!
Meanwhile Becca was having her colonoscopy, and Emily was having a doctor's consultation appointment about setting up a colonoscopy of her own!!!
If you're not actually one of our kids, you're probably wondering about all the C stuff in our lives ... So let me just say, Brittany had a colonoscopy few years back after much searching for a cause of ongoing stomach pain. The results were surprisingly in one so young and since the diagnosis is strongly familial, her sisters are being proactive. Which, as it turns out, is a good thing.
Wednesday at work was pretty negative for me which left me with a heavy heart again. That lead to me to deciding that in anticipation of our mission, that I should cut back on booths at the mall and work days as well ... I'd been so frustrated and had even considered just giving it up, but Dad thought this more moderate response would be better, and as usual, he's right.
After work, when he picked me up, we headed to Home Depot for more light fixtures, and then to Hobby Lobby for whimsical handles.
While there he saw this mirror made from a faux old window, and realized it would solve our dilemma in our new bathroom! (The light socket above the mirror space was too close to the switch and plugs under the mirror space)
After work Dad picked me up and we headed to Jenn Reed's for a New Years Eve party with other antique dealers.
She's in a new house and has done extensive remodeling. I was so excited to see it!
At 9:00 we left and headed to ...
I always look forward to Barb's movie day! Good times. I'd have never seen Bridge of Spies otherwise and I loved it.
On Saturday we headed to the Mt Timpanogos temple for a session and then we had lunch in the cafeteria there!
We headed home to do more work on the Garret. We got the last piece of furniture hauled up with Spencer's help! Thankfully. It was this cupboard which we'll use for linens! Thanks Spencer!
Meanwhile Dad had finished up with church and got a well deserved nap. Yeah Dad.
When I got home Spencer and Brittney were up visiting Scott and we got to hear about their fun Christmas vacation with her family in Wyoming!
So that's it! Thanks for coming along and learning about our frustrating and fun week!
