|« tired of turkey already?||Under the Weather with Teeth »|
There is a turkey breast in the rotisserie, homemade cranberry sauce cooked in maple syrup, and a couple cans of sweet potatoes ready to be taken to my daughter’s house for dinner tonight. She is so thrilled to have a huge house that she invited everybody over there for Thanksgiving. I’m still fighting with those teeth, so I’m thrilled that it doesn’t all fall for me to do it this year. So, in another hour or so we will head out. She lives about 40 minutes away, two towns over. I believe that there will be 19 of us there.
We have so many blessings that they are beyond number. For each and every one I am thankful. Unfortunately, me teeth are causing me some distress which manifests itself in much negativity. I am not usually depressed, but sometimes it is hard to stay positive. For that I am sorry.
Today’s weather forecast: Cloudy, currently 21 degrees F. Sunrise was at 9:28 a.m., sunset will be shortly at 4:13 p.m. for a total of 6 hours, 44 minutes, 47 seconds. That is a loss of 4 minutes 12 seconds over yesterday. The coldest temperature in the state was at Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay at -27. The high was at Sitka at 58 degrees F. That is a difference of 85 degrees!
I went to the dentist on Monday only to be sent home again. My BP was just too high for them to administer the anesthetic. Oh well. Let’s see. What raised my BP then? Couldn’t possibly be the $295 they needed before the surgery. Wouldn’t have been my anxiety over a needle trying to find a very illusive vein. Couldn’t have been an anxiety over losing two teeth. Couldn’t have been the $243 they got from me last week for taking an x-ray and determining which teeth needed extracted. The two that were abscessed might have been an indication! This is an expensive venture especially after having a new roof installed. Money!!! Pain and discomfort!!! AND, I have dental insurance!!! My BP dropped 50 points after I got home. I’ve only been trying to get those teeth removed for over a month. They are affecting my BP and I’ve also had a fever for over 2 months. Guess I’ll try again later.
Tomorrow and the next day I will have a craft table at our largest bazaar of the year. I’ve been so under the weather for the past few weeks that I’ve not made any jewelry. I think I have enough that was already made to get through this one. Sure glad I didn’t sign up for any other craft shows this year.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
