The dentist visit went a lot better than I thought it would. I do have a bunch of work to get done but our insurance will be covering most of it. I had x-rays, consult, scaling and cleaning. I was there for 2 hours. The scaling which I wasn’t looking forward to went completely pain-free and now I have purtty teeth. I do have a bunch of cavitys and I need a crown on one of the teeth but aside from that I came away pretty good. thanks fishee for the well-wishes.

Todays big highlight event is the dreaded Dental visit. I’m ashamed to say that I avoid the dentist at all costs, going only when I know I have a problem with my teeth or gums. One of the commitments to myself I made this year was that I would start going on a regular basis. Well, now that I have insurance for these sorts of things I am keeping this commitment. It really is the perfect time, considering that I have oodles of time during the day. I’m sure that after todays exam, we will have several cleaning (painful) sessions and then the cavity fillings. I know I have at least 3 cavitys. In the end at least I’ll have pretty teeth and a healthy set of gums.

Yesterday I made Nana’s butterscotch oatmeal cookies. I have almost 3 dozen of them, yummy! Mike was really happy and suprised as these are his favorite.
