(FYI, I know my blog layout is all weird. Not sure what is going on with it)
It’s definitely wintery around here now. This is definitely not biking weather anymore.
It makes me feel a little blah, though. The last couple of days I have felt like doing nothing at night other than vegging. Not typical of me, as you know. This helps some:
All the pretty catalogs are arriving to look at and plan for the 2016 gardens. Lots of work to do on that front. We hope to put in a water feature and the other half of the front garden beds get shrub removal and new plantings. Gardening is never done, but that is part of the beauty of it.
Adding to the blah stuff is me needing a root canal. Over Christmas, I woke up in the middle of the night with sharp pain in my tooth. I thought maybe I had cracked a tooth since I do grind my teeth. It took a few days for the pain to subside. I knew I had a dental appointment in a couple weeks anyway, so I just waited to talk to him today. He said there isn’t anything else that would make you wake up with tooth pain other that root issues and there is a dark smudge on x-rays showing signs of root problems. While it isn’t urgent, he said the root canal will go much smoother and be pain free (yes, he really said that) if I wasn’t symptomatic when I had it done. He said when people had bad experiences with root canals it was either not good pain control during the procedure, which there was no excuse for, or that it was done while somebody was having swelling and inflammation, which makes pain harder to control. He did say it was a boring procedure because it takes a while and you have your mouth open for a long time, but it’s not bad. Not sure I totally believe the no pain thing, but I won’t put it off. Our health insurance doesn’t cover dental, so that is a serious annoyance. I guess I had better buy a powerball ticket tomorrow 😀
Anyway, on a different note we have made the master cleaning list from the 2016 goal list.
It’s now been a couple weeks using this. One area per week. This doesn’t include just day to day stuff, only things that you don’t think about doing regularly. It will be interesting once we get around all the zones in about 6 weeks and come back to the first one. I will say that the house is really dusty. 😳
Not to mention the hair ejecting machine:
I still love her, though.
