Good news! My husband figured out what was wrong with the washing machine by Sunday night – ordered the replacement part he needed that would be delivered Monday (and was), replaced the part Monday and SUCCESS! We actually fixed it ourselves for under $25 – how often does that happen?
On Friday, we went out to lunch. It always feels so decadent to go out to lunch on a weekday, and then went to cast our vote during early voting. It’s always interesting to see how much they change the process each time we go. This time, the computer screen that you vote on spit out a physical record of your votes that you could double check and then you take that to another machine and fed it into that machine so that it could be counted. That was a first.
A little catch-up since I’m talking about good things: I did get my permeant crowns on my front four teeth a few weeks ago, and they look great. They look like the teeth I should have always had and they match my mouth perfectly. And I finally got the replacement lenses for my glasses. A few weeks ago I managed to scratch them (I just got them in May) and of course it was a largish area right in my line of sight – how annoying! But that’s all fixed 🙂
Lastly, I already rented a house on the beach for next summer and I finalized our plans for Disney this week too. We are going in December. So a great week!
So, that was my week – how was yours?
I was emailed a “read now” book and sent a digital book both from St. Martin’s Press this week. They both sound very good!
For Halloween, we watched The School for Good and Evil on Netflix. It wasn’t scary but what I was shocked by was how unique and fresh it ended up being – even rather deep. It’s definitely not a Disney movie, and I appreciated that!
