Roots! I got roots!

Ok, well, not as many anymore. I had a root canal this morning, and while it wasn't the horrific experience it is rumored to be, it isn't real high on my list of fun things to do. I got to spend most of an hour listening to our dentist be funny (which he is) and think of wisecrack replies that I either couldn't say because there were too many hands in my mouth or I just couldn't form the words with my numb tongue.

Our subjects this morning ranged from Marie Curie, to Idaho, to Hemmingway and other authors, Wikipedia, and I'm not even sure what else. And no, it wasn't just the gas, although he did have me pretty floaty when he stuck the big needle in but he turned it way down.

So I do have to go back for a crown, because there is a fracture in the rest of the tooth. He thinks that may be how the infection started in the first place - which is actually kind of nice to know, since I've been having the "how? why?" internal discussion with myself.

So now there is a little less of me than there was last week - minus one nerve (in my ankle) and one root (from my tooth). Wish that could translate to a few pounds on the scale...

I am glad that you survived!
As far as the snow, I am hoping that we get a little while we are there so the boys can experience it. I don't think they remember the little bit they got to see last year at our house.

Somehow it never translates to pounds... but at least it's done.

We had snow on Sat. last week, just a few flakes while walking. Nothing stayed around anywhere. Unusual for us to get snow so it was nice to see a little bit. Now we just have flooding again since we had 4" of rain in the last 48 hours, more then 2 of which were in the last 24 hours. bleh At least it looks like our yard is better then the flooding last year, but there is still a lot of water.
