Speaking of agony, I'm feeling some dental pain in the upper left. This has happened before and it's been sinuses, though the gum specialist I was referred to 4 years ago thought there was "pulpal sensitivity" (and then it went away on its own). I'm suddenly noticing hot and cold over there. Uh-oh. I'm dosing myself with Vanquish and if it still hurts Monday an emergency visit will be in order. I hope not; what a way to celebrate a birthday! But there are a lot worse things that could be wrong.
My mother's card already arrived. It's pink with a teddy bear and a pretty pink bow around the card. We're so babyish.
The order from Levenger's also arrived. The packaging was gorgeous. The steel bookstand came in a box with a bungee strap holding it closed, and the stand itself was in a soft bag. I saved the box. For some reason, this item was just discontinued. I'm not sure the lapdesk will be comfortable, but I can detach the cushion. I could have used it outside when it was warm the other day, but I never left the apartment. I also got some bungee bookmarks.
