My Dentist Visit

My day started out with having to go to the Dentist at 8:00 a.m. this morning. I know how important it is to take care of my teeth but I really hate going to the Dentist. I had two cavities to get fixed! I am normally not a crabby person unless I have to go to see the Dentist or Doctor. (I think my children and husband might disagree with this)

I normally get Jack my grandson on Thursday's but my daughter forgot to cancel her dentist appointment, she was supposed to get her wisdom tooth removed. I called her at work in the afternoon and asked her if she remembered to cancel her appointment. She told me she couldn't find the number and didn't cancel it. This made me a little cranky because I knew that my November 7th appointment was going to be tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. I really didn't need this, this week. I didn't want to leave the dentist hanging so I changed my appointment.

When I was getting ready this morning I was a bit crabby at my daughter. I got to the dentist office and the Dentist asked me how I was doing. I told him it is 8:00 a.m. and I am sitting in a dentist chair waiting to get two shots. After the two shots I will have to sit in this chair until my mouth feels like it is two sizes bigger than it is right now, all the while making small talk. I will then have to hold my mouth open until I can't stand it any longer, while choking on my spit and trying to answer their questions with a grunt, with both the dentist hands in my mouth, a drill, and a tube sucking whatever it can get a hold of out of my mouth. After all of this enjoyment I then get to try and talk to people for the next 3 hours without drooling down the side of my mouth. I told Dr. Mayday beside all of this I am doing just fine! He laughed at me and said it would all be over very quickly. I have been going to this dentist for many years now; he really is a great dentist!

Everything I told him came true! When you are 43 years old and have sat in the dentist chair once, you know what to expect. Needless to say I survived!

The harvest party last night went great! I had soooo much fun. We didn't have time to bob for apples! (I am still clapping my hands) The hay ride was a lot of fun, plus we decorated pumpkins, played a few games, ate donuts and drank apple cider. I love apple cider so this was a wonderful treat for me. I had 6 girls in my group last night! It was a very busy but fun evening.

Boaz really enjoyed the corn maze last night! His group didn't get back until 9:00 p.m. I had to stay and practice so I didn't get the low down of the evening yet.

The twin’s football team lost their last game; they lost all of their games this year. Football season is now over, on to Wrestling.

Tomorrow will be a busy day!

My boss from my house cleaning job called and asked if I could come and clean out his refrigerator and all of his drawers tomorrow. I was hoping to get one more Friday off. He just got back from vacation so I wasn't going to clean again until next Friday. I have to be there at 9:00 a.m. I'll leave his house around 12:30 p.m. and head to my Ann Arbor news motor route job. Tomorrow evening at 6:00 p.m. is our dress rehearsal for our Worship fest. I am sure this will last until at least 9:00 p.m. That will be my Friday!

I'll blog more after I see how the dress rehearsal turns out tomorrow evening.

Hi Lori -- I'm glad you didn't bite that dentist (you didn't, did you?).
Your nephew's letter was great! I got a little 'almost' teary for a bit too.
You can make a lot of apple pies with all those apples. Call when they're about done.

BTW, I'm back now. If you like roses, read Billy's last post about his Dad's.

I didn't bit the dentist but I wanted too.

My nephew's letter really got to me last night. I think I read that thing 20 times before going to bed.

LOL about the apple pie!

I'll come over and read Billy's last post.

I bit my dentist once. But he deserved it :) I wasn't even a kid!

Hope you have a great day even if it's busy.

I don't like going to the dentist either. It's like the last thing on my list I want to do.

So sorry the boys lost their game. This has happended to my 7 and 8 year old's football team last year. They too lost all their games, but at least they had fun. Enjoy it now before you know it sports becomes very competative for males and loosing is not an option.

Glad to hear your harvest party went great. We don't have one here, but I bet it would be fun if we did. Oh well I guess you can't win em all.

Enjoy the day now that you got the dentist part out of the way.

Thanks for all the updates. I really feel as if I was with you at the harvest party! (I bobbed for apples, did you notice?) Sorry about your trip to the dentist... not my favorite either. I'm glad you survived!

Given the choice between a visit to the dentist and a recurring tooth ache, I'd gladly choose the former. Completing everyday tasks can be difficult if you also have to deal with oral pain. Keep smiling!
