the bathroom, the sinuses, the love.

the bathroom:
Met with the bathroom guy yesterday. His estimate is a bit more than we wanted to pay, but still within the realm of reasonable. I'm going to see if he'll negotiate at all, but in the end we'll probably sign with him anyway. His timeline fits ours, he knows what he's doing, and he always answers his phone calls. good 'nuff.

the sinuses:
I'm still congested, but completely free of the searing sinus pain I had yesterday. I guess the salt water I snorted up my nose did something. Or else my immune system has finally decided to fight back. Either way, I'm better today than I was yesterday, though still sick and stuffy.

the love:
Mr. December has finally convinced me that instead of complaining about my inability to go to the grocery store, I should just throw money at the problem... so yesterday I placed my very first order with gro.cery gate.way. I ordered last night at dinnertime, and this morning they delivered all of my groceries to the front door. The produce looks awesome and the order is perfect - I'm smitten! This is way better than driving and schlepping and gagging from the smell of the deli counter. I'm officially in love.

That's all for now. At some point I have to throw money at the laundry problem too, which requires a little more work than the grocery problem but is still totally worth it. And then I will drink my raspberry lemonade, eat the newly delivered fruits, and take a good long cold-busting nap.

Grocery delivery is the best invention ever. Enjoy your fruit AND the nap!

I was in love the first time I discovered grocery delivery. The guy brought them right into my kitchen. Worth every cent.

Yep, grocery delivery is nice...I don't use them all the time, but every once in awhile they are a life-saver.

Well if you're throwing money around, I think I might find an excuse to hang around you. All the time. :) I had issues with lunch meat, too. I could shop for it, but as far as making a sandwich for someone else. Nope. Not a chance.

Groc.ery Ga.teway rocks!

Glad you are feeling a little better!

Glad you solved your grocery dilemna. I've never done that, and probably never will. Aside from work hours, it's a guaranteed couple of hours each week when I get to be alone. Course lately my daughter keeps wanting to come along -- hmm? Maybe delivery IS the way to do.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm feeling a bit better today, and the comments definitely help. :)

Good luck with the bathroom. Home renovations are just miserable and a contractor who answers his phone is a delightful rarity to be treasured.
