I love my dentist but OY.......9:12 AM
I didn't exactly know what I was getting done yesterday so needless to say I was a bit shocked when he told me he was doing 3 fillings. What's a filling right? No biggie.
Well yeah but I seem to have conveniently blocked out the part about getting numbed up, which means long thin needles being inserted into your jaw. I had 7 all together and while it was numb I was ONE HAPPY CAMPER although I'm sure the people out in the waiting room weren't prepared for the sight they were faced with once I slowly emerged from the back rooms.
Crooked smile and drooped lip on the right side of my face coupled with a lisp (my tongue was half asleep) and I think I may have been drooling, but I'm not completely sure because you know, I couldn't feel anything.
I came home and was really hungry because I forgot to eat breakfast, so I tried to eat a piece of toast. LOL OH.MY.GOODNESS!!!!
NEVER try to eat anything when you can't feel, I had no idea I had completely butchered my cheek, I must have bit it a couple times but hey, I couldn't tell LOL
Anyway, that was my trip to the dentist, I'm doing ok today though it feels like I was repeatedly punched in the jaw, but at least my teeth are sparkly clean and I have NO cavities. Can't have it all right???
The weather has been beautiful here for the past 2 days, nothing but sunshine and even though there's still a chill, it's nowhere near as cold as it's been and there's no snow and ice everywhere. It really does feel like Spring. I wish I could take a picture of my tulips, they're all coming in and they look amazing.
Unfortunately my digital camera has decided not to work anymore, I can turn it on but it won't open the shutter and it won't zoom, which pretty much means, I can't take pictures.
Isn't it always like this??? The minute you start saving money for something, all sorts of obstacles appear to make you spend it. That's what happened with the dentist trips for me and Jasmine, $200 just for some fillings.
I've put it in God's hands though and will just be patient and let Him help us make the trip to Africa a reality.
Curt has his promotion test on thursday and he's been studying really hard, of course he's nervous because Tech is the hardest one to get. Please send out a prayer for him that he does well on the test, it would help us so much.
I have a lot of cleaning to get done today plus laundry to put away, I've been putting that off as long as I could but it's starting to drive me insane. I don't mind doing housework and as a matter of fact, I quite enjoy it BUT that is when I don't feel like I HAVE to do it, then I become instantly lazy....isn't that just the worst?
Before I forget I just have to share this recipe with you, there is a wonderful blog that I visit and I'm ashamed to say I've only commented once or twice, it's called Farmgirl Fare and I love popping in every morning just to see what farm life is up to. She cooks a LOT and always has the best recipes to share, so when she mentioned baking bread my ears perked up, what is better than homemade bread???? NOTHING!!!!
Farmgirl mentioned a No Knead Crusty Bread that was amazingly easy to make but turned out so well that she was just speechless and so was I. Does this not look like the best bread on earth??? I can almost smell it and imagine slathering on butter watching it melt into the warm straight out of the oven bread.
The recipe was first posted on the NYT and it's by Jim Lahey of the Sullivan Street Bakery, who actually invented it. You will need to register for free with the NYT to read the recipe and the article. I'm sure now you know what I'll be baking this weekend.
Look at how many people are blogging about this wonderful bread. Are you as intrigued by it as I am??? I say we all pull out the flour and yeast this weekend and see how many of these beauties we can produce. I have to tell you that I think what first got my attention about the bread is that it looks a LOT like the traditional bread we see in Portugal. I remember getting up in the morning and walking down the street to the local bakery....the scents eminating from it were enough to make my mouth water and then you were met with tons of different shapes and sizes, but my favorite was always the crusty and airy loaves. YUMMY!!!
Alright now I better get on out of here, I have tons of housework to do, laundry to tackle, some ironing involved and I also have a living room carpet to steam clean. I should be busy for the rest of the day only stopping for lunch and to run out and pick up Jasmine at school.
Hope your day isn't as busy as mine....if you can get a nap in, please think of me LOL
