Is it really December 9??

Man oh man where does the time go. I have gotten nothing done today cause my baby(okay he's almost 8) is sick. Woke me up early this am just shivering and saying he felt very dizzy. I gave him tylenol and he slept awhile. He had a fever. Then some vomiting later. Tonight he felt better although he said he still felt weak. Hopefully he will have a better day tomorrow. I hate to see him sick...feel so helpless.
I also had something happen today that is driving me crazy. I HATE the dentist and would rather be beat than go. So I don't. About 18 months ago, I had horrible tooth pain and ended up with a root canal. I only agreed to it because I was in so much pain and they let me watch my soap and gave me enough laughing gas that I was fine. So I got a temporary crown at that point. Never went back for the permanent. I know..bad patient. Well last night, the temp crown finally fell out. So I called the office today and got an appt on their next business day. Monday the 17th. I am already scared. But my gum at that area of that tooth hurts. I thought after they did the root canal it wasn't suppose to hurt. I also kn ow I have other teeth that need help so maybe I'll keep going. Just scares me to death! Any advice?
On that note..I am out of here....going to either stitch or read. On the reading note if anyone has a book that will pull me out of this slump I have been in since July....tell me!

Good luck with your dentist appointments. They've never bothered me, and I always find it interesting when people say they're scared to death of them.

I hope your little one is back in good health soon.

Found your blog through wXSw Yahoo group where you left a message.

Like your little snowman ornament. You must like snowmen. I saw some others on your blog.

What kind of books do you read? I do mostly light reading. Some are romance and such. I like Debbie Macomber and Kristin Hannah as authors. They are more relationship books with romance thrown in. Very easy reading. I buy some at Barnes & Noble others at a second hand book store. All in paperback. Hope this helps.

You can find my e-mail at my blog.

Oh, I forgot. Good luck at the dentist. I am like you and I did not go for several years and had a tooth chip that needed attention. Found a really caring dentist. Was there just last week to have a filling replaced. Told them just to give me a shot because I did not want to hurt. Was there less than 15 minutes. Sometimes it is better to go on a regular basis for cleaning etc., then you have less problems overall. Good luck.

Try the Louise Rennison books (Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging) there are 7 books total...they are YA books (young adult), extremely LOL funny and a quick read.

KIm, I too had a root canal in a molar and still have pain in the gum area around it. I told my dentist about it, but when he poked at it, it didn't hurt. (Why???) I started noticing that it hurt most when I was stressed, and then realized I clench my teeth a lot - the pressure was causing the pain. It comes and goes, and drives me nuts. But I'm pretty sure that's what it was.
