I Want to Be a Dentist

Not really, but I was very excited to GO TO the dentist today. I have never had a cavity, and I'm very careful with my teeth. I could not WAIT to get them cleaned. Good news - STILL no cavaties. My teeth feel so good! I can't stop running my tongue all over them.

Chris is not doing quite that well. He has an old filling that is giving him trouble, the tooth next to it has a cavity, and he's got his first cavity in an adult tooth. Darn it! He's going to have the worst tooth pulled. It is next in line to come out anyway, so hopefully this won't be too much trouble for him.

Gobble Gobble Goo and Gobble Gobble Gickel

We had second Thanksgiving yesterday at my parents' house. (We had planned to go Thrusday, but mom wound up working afternoons, thanks Mom's boss...) This time there were mashed potatoes and gravy, hurrah! We had smoked and regular turkey. Yum!

My Dad showed off pictures from his trip to Colorado this summer. Then he invited Dennis to go elk hunting next year. This is a very big deal. I don't know if Dennis even realizes how big of a deal it is. He didn't invite me either...

I did not get to take pictures this year, because we left the camera at DJ & Cathy's on Thursday. Boo :(

You can get anything you want...

...at Alice's Restaurant, of course!

At 12:00, we were in the car on the way to Dennis's parents' house, and I remembered to check KSHE! Dennis did not think that he had heard it before, and Chris did not remember hearing it before, so we turned it up and kept right on listening even after we'd gotten to the house. We had to sit in the driveway for about seven minutes.

Mmmm, dinner was good, no mashed potatoes and gravy, but still quite tasty.

DJ & Cathy still have a stupid hummingbird that just didn't migrate. They left the feeder out for it, but I can't imagine it is going to make it through the winter here. Maybe it is the Sid the Sloth of the hummingbird world, and the family intentionally left it behind?

Gotta go now... turkey coma... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I'm feeling Self-Made

For the first time since my divorce, I have real, honest-to-goodness, actual healthcare and dental insurance. Hooray! I can go to the dentist! I can go to the doctor! I can get shots! I can have uncomfortable "procedures"! I can fall down and break various parts! Whoooooo-hooooo!

I've been paying for Chris to be covered, and I am going to continue to do so. It seems that my "group coverage" is actually MORE EXPENSIVE than what I was able to get on my own through Blue Cross. Filed in "things that make you go hmm."
