and it's only Wednesday!
Sorry I was MIA yesterday but I needed the day to rest and I took it. My leg is finally healing and it looks like I will be able to go to Hampton Friday for the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. Good thing I'm planning to mostly test drive machines because I don't think I could stand/walk for a whole day.
All I want to say about this whole adventure with my leg is that I am incredibly grateful for my doctor. I was able to call at 2:00 one afternoon and could get in at 4:00! They also have a great portal where I was able to leave a message with a follow up question and she responded. With my last doctor there was a 6 month wait list for a physical and I could never get in on short notice which meant that I got most of my medical care at a local urgent care center.
The new doctor is also younger than me so hopefully she will outlast me and I will not have to doctor shop again.
In other news:
- Willie has finally finished at the spa and is on his way home! I should have Willie and the new Bliss drive system by mid-week next week.
- I have spent an incredible amount of time insurance shopping. We have been customers of USAA for over 25 years. We called them last year about the guest house that we rent out through Airbnb. At the time they told us that they really didn't have time to look at it. In fact, the exact quote was "our underwriter doesn't have time to look at it. We will not know if you are covered until you have a claim." Really. I read the policy. I knew we were not covered and told them so and suggested that they offer us coverage. They weren't interested so we purchased coverage specifically for that elsewhere. This year they non-renewed us without any follow-up. Unacceptable. I talked to the underwriter yesterday and gave him a piece of my mind. Meanwhile I'm shopping for homeowners insurance for the first time ever.
- Chris picked up the new car yesterday. It's supposed to be mine but he's really enjoying it for the time being. It's a nice, boring, gold 4-door sedan and that's pretty much my criteria in a car. The gold best matches the color of gravel and dirt dust in our driveway. Hopefully I'll be able to go another 10 years before I have to shop for a car again!
- I was banned from helping with wood cutting anymore but Chris has been having a great time chopping up the oak tree. He's almost stored a whole cord of wood. I don't think there's any better exercise than carrying wood logs up a steep hill. It has to be done a couple hours at a time.
That's all I have to offer today. No photos. No projects. The good news is that I'm up and around and planning to do a bit of sewing this afternoon. Photos to follow tomorrow!
