I went to the dentist Wednesday morning for my 4-month cleaning. I have been such a model dental patient the last year or so! So, I was not happy to find out I have a cavity. And not just your ordinary run of the mill cavity. No, it has to be on the edge of the partial tooth that I have a crown on. Old crown has to be removed, cavity fixed, and a brand new crown put on. So, there will be another $600 out of pocket I will have to pay. %$%^! He said he could "patch" the cavity, but did not recommend that as it will compromise the crown. At least it is my oldest crown (like over 20 years) and not one of the one's I just had and paid for in the last couple of years. Other than that, my brushing and flossing is doing great and I can start going back to 6 months cleanings.
I only had to work at the office one day this week. Nice for saving money on gas (and my sanity in the traffic). I won't even have to fill up with gas this weekend. Today is my half day Friday. Love these days. I can be off at 11:30 and get the grocery shopping all done. I also, finally, have an appointment later this afternoon for a long overdue haircut. Only I can't remember if she said 2 or 2:30 (stinks getting old!), so I will have to call her later this morning and get the correct time.
DD is coming home this weekend for a quick visit. Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening. Wish it was longer. She only has classes Mon and Wed and I tried to get her to head home this morning, so she'd be home when I got off work around noon and we'd also have this afternoon together, but she said she meets with a girl on Friday afternoons she is partners with on a class project. Then she says she and BF have a bike ride scheduled Saturday morning at 8am, for a couple of hours, so she won't be heading home until after that (and it takes 2 1/2-3 hours to get home). Oh well. I'm not sure if her BF is coming down too or not. Most likely. He has been staying at her apartment to commute to his new job, but most likely he will want to see his parents too. Which probably means that most likely the 30-ish hours I get to spend with DD will have to be split with her also seeing BF. LOL.
We have plans to spend a couple hours trying out some candle making. I bought all the stuff before Christmas, but the kit got back ordered and didn't get here until after Christmas and she had already left on her trip. Also a trip over to a big furniture store. DH's present to me for birthday (and anniversary) is to get the night stands for our bedroom set. I was looking online and it appears the set is no longer being made. Bummer. It's expensive stuff, so I haven't been able to buy it all at once. First we bought the bed (sleigh bed), then a couple years later got the dresser. Hopefully, I can find something similar that will look ok. The store does still carry furniture from this furniture maker.
This is the bed I have, though ours is king size so there are 3 panels across head and foot. My wood is also quite a bit darker than this. It is very heavy solid wood.
My new rooster cookie jar arrived yesterday. I am so in love! haha! the colors are awesome
Better get to work, so I can get my half day in.
