Tooth Troubles Thursday

How do you like that title??? We jut keep having problems here followed by yet another problem.

We came home from church last night so i decided that I wanted a bag of that 100 calorie pop corn. I stuck it in the microwave and was chopping away happily!! Sitting there kind of in a happy state until my front tooth broke!! That wakes you right up...oh no!! Not now..this is not the time for more money to be going out of this house.


before

I got up this morning and called the dentist. They could get me in this morning...i went on to my precepts bible study then came home early so that i could go to the dentist.

He looked at it and the ladies come in with the estimate of the bill..the BAD Part!! Well, Mike was with me..he said that I had to get it fixed...So off with the deadening stuff and my nose started feeling like it was growning as it got deader and deader..kind of like a Jimmy Durante nose...BUT not that big...!!! Poor Jimmy!! That must have been awful to put up with..

Anyhoo...Out came those noisy and irritating drills...I hate those..They are certainly better than they used to be when i was little. But they still give me the goose bumps and chilly willies. He got it all done and did not like the way my partial fit so he said that he just could not leave it that way so he took it OUT and STARTED over again..he is very particular!! Back in once again, he said now that looks good!! I now have my smile back!! Sure hated losing that smile of mine but there are days lately that i have not been using it a whole lot!! Oh well!!


after

Now it is off to work at Curves in a few minutes. I am working this afternoon; Friday afternoon; Saturday AM and next Monday afternoon!! That is going to help us a little..Not much when it is only $7.00 an hour. But our manager is trying so very very hard to keep it open!! More power to her I say!! My bad knee is making it hard for me to exercise anymore..Makes it hurt so do not know if I should or not...Problems, problems!!

About time to get ready and wake up Mike from his little nap!! Hopefully everyone is good in your part of the world. It is 64 here and the sun is gorgeous!!

FLIP FLOP
Thought for the day: "The world is like a mirror. If you face it smiling, it smiles right back at you."

I feel for you, Sandy. It does seem like one thing after another happens at times.

Keep on smiling even though you don't feel like it.

Peggy said...

My heart goes out to you. Seems with William getting less and less work more and more things are going wrong around here or something needs done that takes money. Like you I just count my blessings of the day and know God will provide. Hugs,

Denise said...

Bless you sweetie.

Oh geeeeez! Well, like MIL loves to say -- If it ain't ONE thing, it's TWO! (don't know where she got that from! I always heard if it's not one thing it's another - but that's NOT the way she says it!) LOL! Well, I'm glad you got it fixed. I'm sure it was very uncomfortable. Spring is coming! We turn the clocks ahead this weekend! Maybe work will start trickling in. It's so tough in THIS economy. People can't afford to make renovations... I sure do pray for you two! I do AGREE with your Mom though you know -- God will NOT let you down! SOMETHING good is coming!

What a bummer. I broke a tooth eating barbeque ribs at Tony Romas several years ago. Now every time I think about eating there I think about that. I'll bet you'll think twice about eating popcorn. Isn't it marvelous what dentists can do though.
Hugs,
Charlotte

I hate going to the dentist! I have on cavity that has to be filled soon! We sure did need a third set of teeth!

Sherry said...

Your dentist did a good job. Be glad that he is particular. I once had one who was not.

Sandy B and Dick said...

Glad you got your smile back! Now go to my blog and check out my challenge for you!!!

Technonana said...

I am so sorry!!! Praying things will be looking up again SOON!!

I had a similar experience, and I understand how wonderful it is to regain your smile.

Mary said...

Sandy,

Dentists and I don't go well together either, so I know how you feel. I'm glad that it is all taken care of.

Sounds like you are going through a difficult time. I've just sent you an email and will be praying for you still.

Blessings,
Mary

Oh boy, I'm sorry you had your tooth break...my husband has been through the wringer with his front tooth. I talked him into an implant and he says....never would he do that again..and our foot doc had one and agreed about the misery. I hope you were kept comfortable through-out inspite of the JimmyD. nose. *hugs*

Linda said...

You were lucky to be able to get in to see your dentist so soon. Glad he was able to fix your lovely smile.

Heart of Rachel said...

I'm sorry about the tooth but glad it has been fixed.

Hope your knee won't give you any more problems. Take care.

Saija said...

reminds me of my front tooth happenings 2 years ago! so i can really relate to having the smile back! you have a lovely one, by the way!!

blessings on your Sunday!

Deanna said...

Definitely need your dentist's name! Glad you had it taken care of. I busted out a few teeth in a fall years ago and it's looking like I need to get them looked at some day soon. Putting it off a while tho, to see what happens with Gulfstream. Yikes!
