Small Accomplishments

Big returns..... I went to the dentist again today.... She hoped to find the cavity that has been causing me grief. She not only found it but said that my gums are looking so much better since the scaling.... Most of the swelling is gone! Yeah, me!!! The tooth was filled without having to take the crown off and no root canal! Savings over $800! Little bit of discomfort but love having a dentist that listens. We even talked about instead of doing major work on me that we are just going to patch me up for now. Fill the broken teeth, cavities and do the cleanings. That way Grim and the monsters can get in to get all taken care of. The only reason I got to go first was because I was the one in the most pain. Grim has one cavity that is giving him problems and the monsters have no pain.....(so happy about that, or else they would have gone first).

Tonight was Band monsters last practice for this year. They go on Saturday to State finals. Unfortunately, this year we won't be able to attend. I'm really bummed out about it, but I can't be in two places at once. She is very happy that Marching season is done! For me it is bittersweet, I really do hate the time that she is gone from home but I know that it helps with her growth as a young woman. The effort and dedication that she puts in shows that type of person that she will grow up to be. I'm so proud my Monster!

Today was the day of little things. We got a picture hung, we took a storm window that the frame fell off to be fixed, we learned a couple more things for Grim to do while at home for therapy and I got to teach one of the therapists how to purl. Got Grim on the recumbent bicycle! I got to read half of the Christmas edition of Mary Jane..... Oh, I can't wait to try my hand at some of these ideas!

Yesterday, I cleaned the bathroom ( what a chore that is), I cleaned out the fridge ( I tossed out everything that was in there) (still needs to be washed out), I got on of the windows to close properly ( paint chips were causing it not to close for me to lock it, Got Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap and washed all the doors (don't want any unexpected guests), made a soft scrub type cleaner, went to the dairy (for milk and eggs) and laundry.

It's funny when I started writing this post I didn't think I had anything to say... LOL!

Gotta Run,

High School Marching Band is one of the most life altering thing for those kids - the work, dedication - is AMAZING - it teaches them so much. I am so glad that they recognize it as Sport at our school so the kids get the pin and jacket for their work. They work just as hard, if not harder than some of the athletes.

Squirrel is loving marching in college. It is so great. Tell your monster BRAAAAAVO from VA.

So cool. Glad you got the dentist out of the way. YAY.
