It is a dreary and cool rainy day in central NC... a good day for staying inside. I do plan to hit the grocery store today for the sales, but hope to stay in and stay warm today. We've had a lot of rainy days the past month or so. I usually don't notice how much rain we get, but we have been waiting and waiting for our new shingles to be installed on our roof. We've had several scheduled dates, just to wake up with rain and have the installation postponed once again.
So, it's supposed to be fall, right? Look at my azalea that sits by the front door. It has a flower on it! This side of the house gets a lot of sun... that's the only reason I can figure it bloomed. It's a cute little surprise, huh?
It's been a busy week for me so far... vet appointment, shopping, dental appointment, hair colored.... but it has been a good week. I did find out I need about $700 worth of dental work. I have broken/chipped four lower front teeth in the past few weeks. I am a clincher and the dentist thinks a bite guard may help to protect my teeth. I am a little skeptical, as I tend to think my teeth are just getting weaker with age... but I guess I'll give it a try. If it works, it'll save me $100-$150 everytime I break a tooth. I no longer have dental insurance since I started working part time, so of course, now my teeth are going to start costing me lots of money. :o(
I will do whatever I can to save my teeth... I do not want to wear dentures. Working in a nursing home, we have lots of patients without teeth... some wear dentures, most don't. I'm always amazed when we get patients who still have all their natural teeth. That's my goal... to keep those teeth so that I can amaze the nurses when I am admitted to the nursing home.
