This morning we were discussing my spots as we got ready for school and work. The subject came up because I had my final appointment at the wound healing center - I am healed! I still need to wear the special bandage if I will be sitting a lot (like at work) or sweating, etc. but don't have to wear it at night anymore. This is to keep the skin from macerating until it heals more completely. The hole is closed but the doctor said that the skin is not at 100% yet. But it will be... At any rate, somehow we decided to name Mommy's spots. The ovary spot is of course a girl, and the liver spot a boy. Rebecca decided the ovary spot's name should be Sabrina. Carly said the other spot should be Joey, which I vetoed. If one of the girls had been a boy, he would have been named Joseph Thomas after Jim's grandpa and our dads. So Joey is a special name to me.
When I picked the girls up this afternoon, Carly had a cute little caterpillar figure in a little nest, that they had put together today. She told us that the caterpillar's name is, you guessed it, Joey! That was okay in my book. I ran into one of her teachers in the parking lot. The teacher told me that Carly had a name for her caterpillar right away, while the other kids had to think about it. I didn't go into the back story with her, but I got a good chuckle out of it.
Our other good news tonight was that our new patio furniture was delivered today. So we got to eat supper outside for the first time this summer! I am happy with the set, and made sure to use the fancy cover we had bought for it to make sure it stays nice. The only problem was the bugs. Now, if you were my new PartyLite candle holders, with citronella candles purchased to accompany, where would YOU be? Actually as I am writing this I think I remember exactly where they are, so we can use them next time. Now I just need to get our power washer unearthed from the garage and set up so I can clean the deck; it looks worse than ever with something new on it. I had hoped to get this done before delivery day, but it wasn't to be.
