WE SAY YAY!

 Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

I saw the maxillofacial surgeon yesterday. Dr. Zane Khan said I don't need surgery. That's a yay! While checking out I mentioned how impressed I was with everyone there (polite, kind, professional). The person at the desk said, We take our lead from Dr. Khan.

That's as it should be. 

My stimulus check is in my account, so that's another yay! I've done my part to stimulate the economy by ordering two sets of glassware for my kitchen, two curtain panels for my bedroom, and two t-shirts for my bod. The rest of it, which is most of it, will go to paying bills.

But along the lines of two things are better than one, that includes dogs. I took this photo of Franklin and Penelope on Christmas. Although Penelope was on Franklin's bed, she looked shocked when Franklin flopped down next to her.

We have another very large yay! I applied to refinance my house back in early December. It's been slow going because interest rates are low and, of course, because of COVID, but it's complete. I have a lower interest rate on a 20 year loan.

I was especially pleased and surprised when the appraisal came back at 50k more than I'd estimated for The Little House On The Swamp. New windows, here we come

We hope you have lots of yay! in your lives, too.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

    1. It's such a nice surprise to learn that the value of one's home is soooo much larger than expected.

  2. Still waiting on the check. Hubs is taking his and using towards our vacation spending money. I will get ahead on bills with mine. We just have the one doggo. She's all we need, and she's not a fan of sharing her Dad with anyone. She gets jealous when he hugs me.

    I am looking for a new project to start. Not sure what yet, but it will find me I'm sure. In the meantime, I made my niece a unicorn piñata-gram for her birthday. It's a thing. And it's awesome.

    1. Yeah, sometimes I do rock. Even in Florida, my house gets quite chilly during the winter. My house was built in 1941 and still has the old, single-pane windows.

  4. Lady Bunny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We can never have enough yay's in our life! And you deserve a fair share my friend.

    The dogs faces in the bed each crack me up for different reasons. Penelope as if saying "What do you think your doing, this is my bed." The other saying- "yeah, get over it."

    1. You're so kind. Penelope tries to rule the world, while Franklin watches her and laughs.

  5. I just hope that the new stuff you bought wasn't all made in China. Would be a real shame to use stimulus money to fuel their economy!

    1. Uh-oh. The curtains were made in China. I probably deserve a spanking for that!

    1. So am I! Surgery would have been difficult to handle, but whenever something goes wrong, Penelope takes charge and straightens me out.

  11. I am so happy that you don’t need surgery and you got to refinance your mortgage at a very low interest rate. This is excellent news even if Penelope took Franklin’s bed.

    1. I was lucky to get a shot of the two of them on the same bed. I doubt it will ever happen again.

  14. So much great news. Has anyone ever told you you look an awful lot like Lady Bunny? Or maybe Lady Bunny looks an awful lot like you.

    1. Lady Bunny and I are both blonds with bodacious bods. It's hard to tell us apart.
