"We will need to meet again in one week."
We said, "That is too soon. Can it be the following week?"
He said, "Someone will contact you to set up our next meeting in two weeks."
So here we are. It's two weeks. No phone call. I have emailed Mesis and I have called TWICE. I just talked to a Hispanic lady who informed me "they are gone".
I said, "Are they on vacation or what?"
She said, "They are gone."
Yeah, I get that. Am wondering if they are gone forever or for a day or for five minutes!!!
She finally decided she could call Molly Neuman, who, evidently, really does exist, and have her call me back. We shall see. Jerry went ahead and made an appointment with Mom's doctor to talk to him about her Cat Scan and the guardianship. That appointment is this Thursday, so we will be heading BACK to our other house tomorrow morning. At least, we get to go together this time.
Then this isn't really trouble, but it is about the jewelry. I decided to just SHOW it to you, so I made you another video. This one is short. Here is the link:
AFTER I made this video, I decided to hammer the loops of the gold necklace. I purchased a stainless steel bench block, after all, and a chasing hammer, so I figured I should hammer SOMETHING. Aga hammered stuff, but I didn't really remember the details. How hard can it be. You put the wire on the block, and you hammer it.
Let me just say, I SHOULD have watched Aga again to see what exactly you do and why. I broke the rings into two pieces. DARN! Then I spent the next two hours trying to FIX my broken loops. I took a picture for you of the NEW -- and hopefully, improved -- design.
Here it is now. It took me FOREVER to do that, believe it or not. Wiring those little green crystals in those little loops is no small task.
I will probably decide I hate it tomorrow and start all over.
I'll wait to see what Jerry says. I actually like it better than the first way because it is more "together".
My two green tops are VERY casual, so the necklace could be a shoestring. Fact is, it takes a lot of mess-ups to get good at anything.
And here is what I started with yesterday. I decided it looked really cheap and very homemade, so I cut it all apart.
I've got to go walk my daily mile on the treadmill.
I am SO PROUD of myself because I am really sticking with it. I think the wine and the crackers and cheese threw my weight loss off.
DARN! Do I have to give up EVERYTHING!?
Have a great Tuesday evening. We will be watching night 2 of Dancing With The Stars. Sure hope Pamela gets voted off tonight. She is TERRIBLE. She acts like she is on something other than the dance floor, if you catch my drift!
