Monday: went to the post office, made appointment with the dentist for later this week. I haven' been to the dentist for a long time. I stopped going because I didn't have the insurance, plus there was nothing majorly wrong with my teeth. I've had dental insurance for about a year and a half, I just keep forgetting to make the appointment. My insurance company sent me a letter basically telling me to go to the dentist, since I had the insurance. I had to make an appointment for a doctor's thing, so I figured I might as well make my dental insurance too.
I got some interesting mail, a long overdue goodie bag swap:
Tuesday: I just read my book until work, didn't get it done, so had to read it after work, too. Went to bed about 11.
Wednesday: I was so tired, I had to open, and I think I'm just tired of working, just plain tired. I got some cool mail.
An 'Emerald' pocket letter:
I saw this at the store:
I had to go to the dentist later that afternoon, for not going for 4 years, I didn't get any bad news. They said I needed to floss more and there were a couple spots they were kinda worried about, but all was good. When I finally got to bed that night, I couldn't sleep even though I was exhausted.
Thursday: I really needed to get out of the house, so I convinced my friend to go shopping with me. We went to Walmart, cause I needed double-stick tape:
I went to the Dollar Tree because I needed paintbrushes and 5x7 envelopes:
We also went to the Asian food store, cause I love trying new things:
So the two reddish packages are some kind of mixed packages. I learned they have a lot of dried fruit, though I'm not really sure what kind of fruit they are. There's also these rice paper circles with some kind of jelly between them, a few mochi looking things, some stuff with sesame seeds and some stuff that just looks like jelly.
Last up, I had to go pick up some more chai:
Monday I got a 'check' for a business that used to be housed at our address (sadly we get a lot of mail for people that don't live here), so I wrote not at this address, return to sender. It came back to us on Thursday night, along with another check for someone else who doesn't live here.
Friday. I went to the post office to complain about Thursdays mail, and the postmaster told me it was all because of a barcode that was on the 'check' he also told me it wasn't a check and just junk mail. He also couldn't actually look me in the face because he was messing with a computer. The other check actually said on the front: Postmaster deliver to addressee only, guess they failed at that one. I told him our three names are on the mailbox yet we get lots of mail for businesses and people who are not there. Basically he told me, our mail is delivered by different people all the time and they'd rather deliver it and be safe than sorry. It's getting so old, and we're getting very frustrated.
And then work got wicked busy at the end, there was an after hours thing that was bigger than I thought it would be and no one really told us it was happening.
But, I did get to come home to some fun mail.
A sticker swap:
I also got two $10 gift cards to Applebee's to help with my next eating experience, sadly they don't include alcohol.
Saturday: I had to work a graduation at Hilton, and then it basically rained the rest of the day. I went grocery shopping and did laundry.
