I woke early and saw the light peeking through the curtains. What is this light my eyes behold? The sun!! The song lyrics 'it's a beautiful morning, I think I'll go outside for awhile ........ and just smile' are running through my mind as I sip my scalding hot coffee.
It will have to wait until I get back from the dentist. Not me this time. Love of my life has to have two teeth extracted. We both made the mistake of seeking dental care locally when we first got dental insurance. We both had root canals and crowns at the hands of the local dentist. After a whole 10 months of pain I finally had to have the tooth removed. It was a traumatic event for me with only Novocaine to numb my jaw. He yanked and pulled and twisted and finally broke the crown off, then had trouble getting a good grip on the remaining tooth. I was gripping the chair with every fiber of my being and the next day even my butt muscles hurt. Not to mention the gaping hole in my mouth.
Today I will drive my mildly sedated husband to our new dentist to have the broken tooth and the tooth crowned by local dentist extracted. This is the same man that had his wisdom teeth extracted with nothing more than Novocaine. Afterwards he went back to work. But today he will go in a fine drug induced haze and be escorted by me. Did I tell you I love my new dentist?
I am off now to act as chauffeur. Not before I watched the footage of the car trapped in the bumper of the semi on the Today show. Great ......... I am getting on the interstate now. The one with all the heavy truck traffic ..........
