Over Memorial Day weekend Morgan had complained of a toothache. She had a toothache about three weeks before and I got her to the dentist
ASAP. They thought it was either a nerve or an absess since there was swelling, but there was no sign of a cavity (thank goodness!) They put her on antibiotics and she seemed better. So when her tooth started to hurt again, and actually was keeping her up at night, I took her to the dentist again. Knowing that it was still bothering her, they concluded it must be the nerve touching her filling and is going to need a 'pulpotomy' (child's version of a root canal.)
So needing a pulpotomy was definitely the bad news of the visit, but there was also some fun news. While we were in the waiting room the receptionist informed her that she was the winner of the "No Sugar Bug Club" for the month and received a $100 Gift Card to Toys R Us. (She was entered for not having cavities at her last cleaning.) That was last Wednesday....I've been asked "When can we go to Toys R Us?" EVERY DAY since! LOL!
The picture taken after her last cleaning for not having 'sugar bugs' that was drawn as the winner.
Last Thursday was my dental cleaning. I REALLY tried to get in while Morgan was there the day before. The receptionist was even joking with a coworker that she'd like to try cleaning teeth sometime and I told her she could do mine! LOL! I always get anxious about any dental work and wanted to get it over with...also didn't want to have to go 2 days in a row! ;-)
Since I went to the dentist, I was unable to help at the kids' Field Day, but stopped by afterwards for a couple pictures. It was warm and humid, but they sure had a ton of fun!
This past weekend, Rich and I went away for his cousin's wedding. We had a blast! The food was awesome, the venue was beautiful, the best man's speech (another cousin) was the best I've ever heard and we danced...a lot! There was a shuttle from the hotel to the wedding venue, so we didn't have to worry about driving....turned out to be a great thing! ;-)
************So far this week has been a bit calmer. I started a project that was bigger than I realized though...maybe if I work at it at least 2-3 hours a day, every day, for the next 2 months I'll actually get it done in time! And Morgan's dance recital is Saturday, so we'll have her regular practice tonight, the rehearsal tomorrow night and the recital Saturday afternoon....I should take the project to work on through all that waiting! ;-)
So, on top of this stuff, the rest of the month is filling up quickly! We have birthdays, anniversaries (one has a party-65 years! AMAZING!), the town's fair, open houses, a town festival, Morgan dancing for an art fair and a baby shower. Father's Day is in there somewhere too ;-)
With the last day of school next Thursday, I'm going to have the kids home with me for the next couple months as well. I hope to stay on top of blogging, but it may be a little more sporadic than it has been. Just know that I'm still around! :-)
