Not quite finished

Not finished with dental work, that is.  I still need a cleaning, and that has been scheduled for May 15.  It's probably what I dread most, all that scraping just drives me crazy but it needs to be done.

The dentist called me yesterday to see how I was doing, and asked me to call the office today to let them know.  I did have a lot of discomfort at the sites where the pain killer was injected - it still is a little sore - but nothing I couldn't endure and I got a good night's sleep.  Since I will be taking pain meds after next week's surgery I didn't want to deal with them for this pain, and I can't take any kind of aspirin because of the surgery.  I will just tough it out!

I had a problem with my tv starting last night - I figured I hit one of the buttons on the remote by accident, but the more I tried to fix it the worse it became.  I had this same problem shortly after the U-Verse was hooked up.  This morning I called the installer who was gracious enough to give me his phone number in case of problems like this, and within about a half a minute he told me how to correct the problem.  That is so much easier and quicker than having to go through normal channels with a service provider.  For that reason alone I like AT&T much better than I liked DirecTV, but I don't care for the remotes of either one.  There are too many buttons and most of them are for selections I will never make.  I just want to click ON, find the channel I want, and click OFF when I'm finished.  I have recorded a few programs and gone back to view them, but that doesn't happen very often.  I wish AT&T offered a "simple remote" for folks who aren't interested in all the extras.

Does anyone else but me wonder at the conduct of the investigation of the missing airplane?  I just don't believe it is where they think it is, or that it went into the water at all.  Are satellites still watching the area to spot debris of a plane wreckage?  If they are, it is never mentioned.  I sometimes think the only reason I watch the coverage of the search is because I love hearing the Australian accents! 

I'm so happy to see the sun this morning, although it alternates with rain.  It still isn't quite warm enough for me, but the temperature will rise steadily in the next few days.

It's hard to believe the weekend is rolling around again.  I don't know where the time goes, but I feel that I have to keep my eyes wide open so I don't miss anything!


  1. Well, I thought a week or so ago, they said there was debris, and now there is NONE.. well, what was that a week or so ago?? do they think we will not remember what they said? I just hope the poor souls did not have to anticipate the downward plunge for too long time or suffer unduly.... It would be nice if they all just showed up somewhere, but don't think that will happen....

  2. Sounds like you've got it worked out, a nice dentist and a nice TV company. I too wish they had the simplified version of just about everything these days. Why not one for the folks who like to play forever with the remote and one with only 4 buttons?

  3. I think I heard them say it was "fishing" debris? What they thought might be from the plane was not from the plane. I think the information has been misleading, sometimes wrong. I don't believe anyone has any idea where the plane is. I guess I wonder why they are spending millions and millions of dollars to find out what happened, when they might never find the plane. I wish our gov't would spend our money or OUR country - roads, bridges, lower taxes, medical research, etc. Oh well, as my mother used to say, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride." :)

  4. We've had great luck with Dish. I don't know how many times we have had to call the to walk us through straightening up something we messed up by hitting the wrong button. Everytime they have been very nice to work with.

  5. I too just returned from the dentist just last Tuesday. I go to Algadones, MX for all my dental work. The regular dentist I see does not do root canals so I had to go to the dentist next door. He shot me up with novacain to finish the root canal, then off to my regular dentist for a crown. More novacain in the same spots. I am just now getting over the pain in the area I was shot up in. Glad that is over.

  6. I think you lucked out with a wonderful dentist and a good TV guy.
