Grover slipped on the icy deck Sunday morning and hurt his leg. He limped for two days and worried me a bit. Then, yesterday, I realized that he was playing me. Yes, he did hurt himself a bit, but by limping noticeably he got more attention and leg massages and hugs. Poor little Stinky isn’t smart enough to do that, but Grover? Oh, yes. You have to watch the breeds that are bred through the centuries to make their own decisions and problem-solve. This morning he hopped out of bed and ran to the door. Poor baby.
Our weather has been so strange this winter. Sunday morning it was 26 and icy on the decks and sidewalks until about noon. Then, it warmed up to the mid 40’s. Monday it was 74. Today, when the boy and I went out for our walk it was 63. Tomorrow 40 and dropping. Hello. I was telling Margene this morning that when I was walking to the car to go to work I spied my Snowdrops. I do love those little guys. I have my Lenten Rose that blooms all winter, but the Snowdrops are my harbinger of Spring!!!
Now, for the dental work. I have very good health and am blessed. I have very bad teeth and have spent way more money and time than I ever wanted trying to keep them healthy and whole. Well, I had an abscessed tooth before Christmas and suffered with it until after the first of January before getting medication. I was on the medication for a good long time before seeing the dentist who told me I either needed a root canal or an oral surgeon to remove the offending tooth. I opted for one more root canal. I have had them before and they were never a big deal. This time it was. The dentist deadened my mouth and for 45 minutes he drilled. He gave up on one drill and tried another. That one made smoke that came pouring out of my mouth. None of it hurt, but boy, was it weird. After he finished for the day, I went grocery shopping and finally made it home. My mouth was numb until after 9:00 that night. A total of 10 hours. Then, the next day I was washing my face and it hurt to touch my right cheek (the root canal was on the right side). I had a bruise. I spent 4 days looking like a beat up chipmunk. So very sad. No. It is epically sad. Truly.
I wish you all a wonderful Tuesday. If you can’t pull that off (Tuesday is the armpit of the week), then we’ll shoot for decent. That’s my hope anyway. Have a good one!!!
