Good Ending to a Long Week

Sweet Kelly kept Sarah Kate for me today and she would not nap. I put her to bed at 6:30 tonight and this is how I found her at 6:35. I think she was tired! Ya think?
I had a root canal and I think I am am new woman. I am sooooo happy to be out of PAIN! The pain medicine that he gave me on Monday made me sick sick sick. So, I have been taking Advil and they have not helped me much. My numbness from the shots is wearing off and I am VERY sore, but I will take sore over "can't concentrate on anything" pain!
The dentist told me he had never seen such long roots in teeth. I heard the same thing 12 years ago when I had my wisdom teeth out. I think I need to sell my teeth to the Ripley's Believe It Or Not" museum. Maybe I could get in Guinness Book of World Records.
I am hoping for some peaceful, pain free sleep tonight!

Awe! Bless her heart! I'm glad you got relief from your pain, I totally hear you about the pain killers. I can't wait until I get the all clear to switch to Advil. I've been on pain killers for 3 straight weeks with no end in sight :(

Love the picture of SK asleep! Glad you got to the dentist and hope you are feeling much better each day!

Oh bless your heart! I feel your pain! I have TERRIBLE teeth and my dentist actually told me to never get rid of dental insurance, ha! I brush all the time but I just have bad enamel. Thankfully I've only had one root canal about a year ago but I know you are glad it's over with and you can be pain free! Hope you get some good rest tonight!

So glad that you're feeling better! There is nothing like nerve pain and there is nothing like pain relief after feeling it intensely for too long. Best wishes for a full recovery, thank God for endodontists!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
