Bad mojo all around (posted by Ann)
Well, it has spread to Chicago. No, not a kidney stone, and not even me. Don is scheduled for hernia surgery on Friday. He was in pain, and then in more pain, so we were at the doctor when he opened this morning. He sent us to a surgeon, who confirmed the diagnosis and so here we are, ready to go on Friday. Don's first surgery - ever. I think the first time he's ever been in a hospital, other than to pick me up or wait for me, since he was born.
So, in sympathy, I cooked today. Homemade lasagna, chocolate orange panna cotta, fried chicken, rice and gravy, various salads, pine nut tart, and I'm sure there was more but it all blurs together. And then I found out my dishwasher is broken, so I washed. And washed. And washed. I'm not cooking for a week, and I'm certainly not washing any more dishes.
Maybe you can have your procedure on Friday too, and we'll all be recuperating over the weekend! Surely we are owed some good mojo in both our houses.
Your boring black suit is on the way to you, it should be there by next Tuesday. Buy a white shirt, and you're set. Just think, you'll look just like me! I wear so many plain black suits that Don got me a Johnny Cash CD. 3rd sister had me buying fuchsia instead, which is a great improvement.
Feel better, and we'll work on that on this end too.
