If my kitchen ever gets this dirty again, somebody please call the city to condemn my house. You’d be doing us both a kindness.

The cleanest that you will ever see my house is right before I go on a long vacation. I can’t think of a more miserable feeling than to come home after a nice vacation to a dump.

Went to a new dermatologist today and got a full body check. All the little bumps and patches are benign and mostly due to aging, she says. Whew! Another worry to check off the list. My mother probably has at least one skin cancer removed a year now.

I enjoyed the sound of my feet on the floor today.

56 hours before we leave the house for the airport.
