D IS FOR DENTIST!
It would be bad enough to go to the dentist, but since we don't have dental insurance it is double the pain !
Just got back from a four hour stint at the dentists. This is the second four hour appointment in the last month. Today it was two root canals and prep for two crowns. Prior to this it was prep and placement of two bridges. My last long appointment included a quick visit from a dental surgeon because apparently I am a bleeder. Now, before we can proceed any further I have to visit a specialist. After that there will be a couple more visits.
It's a good thing we have almost sold the house or I would be without any teeth! Did you know British people are known for their poor teeth, poor dental work and small mouths and jaws? Well we are. The good news is that I have now found a good dentist in whom I have great confidence -- even if he can go for another trip to Hawaii on my dime.
Yes, the house is back in escrow for the third time but it is looking quite secure for us this time.
Here's another good "D" word: DISCOMBOBULATE. Don't know how I could have illustrated that one. It means confusion and uncertainty. It seems to have no definite origin, but evolved just from the sound of its confusion. There is no combobulate to go with discombobulate. But it seems to me that it is a very satisfying word that conveys exactly what is intended.
Well, it's been quite a summer of doctor's and hospital visits, but believe me I am still thriving and rejoicing. I have my beautiful, cozy home to recuperate in, with tea and scones on the deck overlooking the creek. (I feel like Mrs Bouquet with her candlelight dinners and finger foods on the patio).
The Lord is good all the time. All the time the Lord is good!
