DREADFUL DENTAL DRAMA

I wasn’t going to write about this, but then I got outed by a friend in the comments.

Brief time line:

Crown came off molar

Palm Sunday- Tooth cracked-lengthwise.

Gets inflamed

Thursday- Dentist says tooth cannot be saved. Go to oral surgeon to get his opinion.

Good Friday- Oral surgery

Blur of pain, grossness, soft foods.

Wednesday- Solid food. Big mistake.

Thursday- Queasy, bruised and jaw feels fractured.

Tomorrow- Follow-up with surgeon.

So, Easter dinner was canceled at my house and baskets (which  I enjoy) did not get filled. It was all a bit depressing and I am looking forward to Mother’s Day and having my family around me again. I was very grateful that the surgeon was able to fit me in before the holiday weekend.

I DO DECLARE

I will never again wear pantyhose unless it is in the dead of winter in an unheated castle to prevent chilblains.

Not to a fancy restaurant or a wedding or a funeral-not even my own.

If the colored tights trend continues, I’ll simply dye my legs from the knees down. Think of the money I will save!

When Southern women hit 50, we can make our own damn rules!

THE BEST PERFUME TO ATTRACT A MAN

My girlfriend told me her Irish perfume smelled like maple syrup after a few hours.

Men were following their noses to her and then talking about pancakes.

I said, “If you really want to attract a man, find a perfume that dries down to bacon.”

(I haven’t lived with Himself all these years for nothing.)

OVERHEARD-Tearoom

Beautiful, well-dressed lady telling her friend about another tearoom that she had recently visited, “The food was good but it was just a pick-up place.”

Friend, “Why do you say that?”

Lady, “The parking lot was full of pick-up trucks.”

Oh, dear. Wrong on so many levels.

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY:

I got this idea from a little friend of mine who blogs with the best of them. Of course, she had her list be links. I don’t know how to do that yet. (Hey, it’s a process!) I was just thinking about making a whole page of lists that I would update on a regular basis. Which I will learn how to do soon-along with adding pictures. So here is my first baby list:

Being a Mom

DH,DD and DS- you know who you are

Friends- old and new

Nice neighbors

Surprises!

GPS- wonderful invention that saves me from (literally) losing a child

Flowers- inside, outside, in the car

Perfume!

Purses

Pedicures- oh, the three P’s!

Daytrips

Tearooms

Collecting crosses

Open source

Babies!

Cooking for people I love- and the people they love

Watching the water- fountains, waves, a water hazard…

Cars that look like they’re moving when they are standing still

Eiderdown

Fur coats- OK, on puppies and kittens (nice save, huh?)

A bird in the breakfast room- cheerful way to start the day

Waking up to the smell of bacon and coffee

Mockingbirds singing to the moon at 3:00 am

Bluetooth- because I love it so much I call it my Boo-tooth

Clouds

Cashmere

Blue ceilings

Cards- especially Valentine’s Day

Cut glass, prisms and leaded glass- cheerful and sparkly. Does not tarnish.

Long scarves

Needlepoint

The orange WordPress logo

Candles

Playing cards

Beautiful boxes

A fire on a gray, dismal day

Books! Well, that leads me to another list!
