So the weatherman was right - the sun did come out today and temps got into the mid-60s. It was a beautiful "spring" day, one meant for the park or a walk on the beach.
Instead, based on the sadness I still feel from the weekend's events - and I promise to fill in soon, but just cannot write about it now - I celebrated with having a root canal done. Last Friday, after our washing machine spewed water and the repair cost a pretty penny, I headed to the dentist with what I thought was a cracked old filling in need of repair. I was told "Oh no - the filling is still there, but it was a part of your tooth that fell out. You need a root canal and then posts for a crown. And I suggest you get it done ASAP".
"But but but - Mr. Dentist - we may have to be out of town for a couple weeks on a big exciting family event!"
Sunday - No big family event to happen. Monday - crawl into work and call for appointment. Tuesday - 9am root canal and day spent wallowing in self-pity in bed. Co-pay for a root canal is not the $10 standard either...more like 23x that. And the work isn't done yet.
*sigh* Going to go read my daughter a book - throbbing head and all.
I figured, while I already felt crappy, why not feel totally crappy and get the root canal done. Maybe I'll be feeling more cheery as the week progresses- supposed to remain in the 60s and sunny. I need to sit and feel it on my face.
OH- I am doing the giveaway this week. Someone please tell me a funny story to lift my spirits! I so need it.
