This afternoon I made a long overdue visit to have my teeth cleaned. I was nervous about it because I remember the scraping and the metal picks used in the past, but my daughter assured me that our dental office is different - they use jets of water at a high rate of speed. I told the dental technician that I was extremely nervous and she suggested I could use nitrous oxide. I jumped at the chance.
She was very gentle with the molars that gave me cause for concern. The nitrous doesn't make me feel out of it, but just relaxed; I couldn't take a Valium this time because Joe is working and couldn't drive me. I guess maybe the nitrous has more of an effect that I realize because I remember feeling that my shoes were coming off. I wore Birkenstock sandals and when the nitrous started taking effect I thought "Oh hell, my shoes are falling off!" Of course, they weren't.
I am thrilled with the results and already have my 6 month appointment set up.
I have just about decided to stay where I am in my mobile home for a while, but today I found a notice in my mailbox of a meeting of the new Homeowners Association. They mention voting on by-laws, dues, budget, Board of Directors officers, committees to be formed, etc. What a crock! I'm too old to fight things like this any more, so maybe I should rethink going into an apartment. Dang, I hate decisions like this hanging over my head.
It is another hot day and will also be in the 90's tomorrow, but will begin to cool down for the weekend and the beginning of next week.
I looked out my bedroom window at the moon as it was rising last night - WOW! - what a gorgeous sight! This was the prettiest full moon I've seen in a while.
I stopped at the grocery on my way home and wanted to get ice cream, among a few other things. All brands I looked at have high fructose corn syrup which I will just do without, so another trip to Costco is warranted to get their organic ice cream! I have never been all that eager for ice cream, but find I crave it year around in California. Since I live alone I've begun to eat it right out of the container. I remember when my kids used to laugh about their dad doing that. I guess he and I are a lot alike in some respects.
