I think I have gotten all the mileage I can out of St. Paddy's day. It occurred to me that it is time for a new post.
I have ideas that I want to explore on my blog, but right now I am not up to the task. For over a week I have been suffering with an infection. The whole side of my head aches and thinking has not been an option.
After two trips to the dentist I was given the choice between a root canal or an extraction. I probably made a foolish decision when I decided on the root canal because that tooth is more filling than enamel. I suppose it will have to depart my jaw eventually, but if I can avoid that procedure for another year or two I may not even have to have it done. ;-(
Monday I will have, what I hope to be, my last dental visit and will get this over with. I have another tooth that should have a root canal and a crown, but the expense of the crown is daunting. i may, or may not, have that done next.
In between dental appointments I had an out-of-town visitor this week. She was a former neighbor when I lived in my previous house with a pool (as Hyacinth Bucket would say, although I did not have room for a pony. Ha! You do watch Keeping Up Appearances don't you?).
My former neighbor is a beautiful young woman with the most incredibly gorgeous changeable eyes that anyone would envy. (Well, maybe not Elizabeth Taylor). Although she and her family moved to Long Island, her oldest daughter is now in her last year of residency at the U of A. She is/will be a doctor and I am so impressed with her tenacity and ability. I have known her since she was a small girl and always knew that she was destined for great things. She was a brilliant child and now as an adult she is fulfilling her potential.
Whenever my friend comes to Tucson to see her daughter she always takes time to visit me and get caught up. She took me to lunch and I enjoyed eating something beside the soup and puddings that have been my staples for nearly two weeks.
For most of you a busy week is normal; for me it's a rarity. I have a luncheon date today with my friend who takes me shopping every week. I guess you could call this week one of ups and downs. Today is an 'up' day and I had better post this and go get ready.
