It seems we are all over being sick.
It took long enough.
We were all well enough to enjoy Thanksgiving with some great friends.
Nellie seems to have progressed in her speaking a lot over the past few weeks.
She even has told me when she is tired and wants to go to bed.
Which has NEVER happened.
Usually it is just the opposite, kicking and screaming saying she isn't tired and she struggles to keep her eyes open for a book and then she is out in like 5 minutes.
Night time is almost always awful with that one, she never wants to go to bed, never wants to go to sleep, and always seems to be starving just as it is time to go to bed...
Also, I get my wisdom teeth out in 2 weeks.
I am not excited, and I pretty much feel sick when I think about it.
And I am opting out of getting gas or being put under.
I am more scared as to what I might say under the influence than feeling every shot they put in my mouth and knowing exactly what is going on and feeling every move.
And there is NO WAY I will be put under..
and in more news about my mouth, I about cried today when I made my appointment to get my tooth implant done.
Seriously, it has been over 20 years (yes you read that right 20, two zero) since my accident that left my mouth a mess, leaving me with a retainer that I am supposed to take out every night (which of course I don't, because after you have something for so long you kinda forget about it.. crazy how that happens). Probably one of the things I am most excited about is that when I go to the dentist I wont hear over and over and over again about how red my mouth is, how I need to take my retainer out, and the latest I can't eat with it in.. Umm I have eaten every meal for the past 20 years with it in and I have never ONCE had a problem or been told I have to take it out to eat and all of a sudden the dental hygienist tells me that I can't eat with it in.
She then asked how long I have had it and when I told her she didn't say anything else.
I think everyone is surprised when they do find out, I mean I don't know many almost 30 year olds walking around with a fake tooth on a retainer.
But after several attempts to get it done it is finally happening.
ps, if you would like to donate to the "get valerie new tooth" you are more than welcome to.. It isn't covered by insurance (which we don't have anyways) and the screw alone is more that our mortgage and the payment for van put together..
But you should donate to Project Kenya.
