Monday misgivings

SH has a toothache. A bad toothache. He has been asleep since about 9:30 this morning which is the first time he has really slept for the last couple of nights. He paced the floor all night but did his best to be quiet and I slept quite well. This is a complete turnaround from our norm....I am the one with the bad teeth. I have spent countless hours and dollars trying to save my teeth but a couple of years ago, after having 4 abcessed teeth in 6 months I cried uncle and gave up. Root canals seldom work for me and my dad (who's side of the family I take after) lost all of his teeth by the age of 32. My parents worked hard to keep mine healthy when I was young and I spent way more time in the dentist chair than my friends, but even my baby teeth broke off and decayed. My poor kids spent so much time in the dentist chair they thought it was home away from home. I spent so much money at the dentist I think I paid for his sons college tuition. The day I made the last payment on DS's braces he looked at DD's teeth and said "here we go again." He excused himself to his office and I'm sure he called his wife and told her to go ahead and book that cruise she had been wanting to take.
I hope everyone has a great day. SH just woke up to get ready and is a little grumpy....the keyboard noise is bugging him.

Ugh. That reminds me that I really need to make an appointment to find out what the heck is wrong with this implant. It might be nice to be able to chew on both sides, eh?
