Bill and I have become converts to a new kind of Dental Floss. Prior to our Dental Cleanings this fall, I think it would be fair to say that neither one of us flossed often, though Bill did more than I. Now the Dentist has given us samples of a product made by Oral-B, called Satin Tape. It doesn't splinter like regular floss, it is easier to get between your teeth and less likely to hurt your gums, and it doesn't cut into your fingers when it's wet.

And flossing my teeth regularly for a couple weeks afer brushing has convinced me that it's necessary. We went out and bought some of this Satin tape - look closely if you go to buy some - satin floss and satin tape may be hung on the same peg at the pharmacy. We recommend the tape.

Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon and early evening shopping furniture with my mom. This was a "look at what's out there" trip. What's out there is expensive! And there's all this stuff made of cherry with wormholes that has additional knicks in it to make it look "distressed" so you'll feel like you're getting something "estate". I told the saleslady I could deal with the sense that I was buying something "new" just fine, thank you.
(we didn't buy anything though). House of Sofas is a pretty nice store - and has big sales right now because the owner is retiring and a lot of the stock is going to turn over.

I got home and Bill was in the mood to do something productive. We went downstairs and I caught dusty acoustic tiles and frame as he handed them down to me. It will be nicer once we get those down - the ceiling won't be so low. We will need to paint it though. I didn't last very long at that; I was tired.

Today I did a couple loads of laundry and finished putting the displays into the appendix of my thesis- yes my thesis is done, but I'm trying to compile an electronic version. Now I've got everything in there except some images I scanned with Rikhei's help on Saturday.
