I had my first of many dentist appointments today. This was the first of the deep cleaning appointments and thankfully my worst side is my right and that is where they normally start. It wasn’t pretty and I had to break down and take an Ibuprofen this afternoon. The Dentist did offer me proscription Motrin but I passed..worst case…I slather clove oil on my gums, or swish with vodka. Both choices numb my mouth. Fingers crossed…so far..so good.
I had to fill two prescriptions. A basic antibiotic and an anti viral. I have my Hogmanay Outlander party tomorrow and she said it was fine to start my meds on Monday. Seven days no wine (a no no with the anti viral) and seven days no probiotic (because why waste my money). I bought some plain yogurt and it’s been 8 months since I tried it the last time. I seem to be better with cheese so hopefully yogurt doesn’t bother me this time or I will have to try something else while I am on the amoxicillin. It’s a necessary evil so I will have to deal with whatever happens.
I came home right after the dentist. Mostly to make sure all the blood was off my face. Oh yes…it was bad. My gums bled a lot. I touched up my make up and then the Girl and I went to the big grocery store to fill my prescription and get the things I needed for my charcuterie board tomorrow. Hopefully I have everything I need.
I woke up a little late this morning but I knew it was meant to be when I managed to wash and make my bed, wash the Boys work clothes and toss them in the dryer, put all Hogmanay presents in gift bags, and empty the dishwasher before I left. I walked into the bank and there was no waiting. I walked into the post office and there was minimal waiting. I even swung by the Restore because I had minutes to spare. I still made it 4 minutes early for my dentist appointment. When I left the dentist office and was waiting to pull out… a red tail hawk flew over me. Everything was meant to be this late morning/early afternoon.
I had a dream this morning that I was in a grocery store. I had been there before because I knew the people who work there and where everything was located. None of this is familiar to me in the waking world. I was in the last aisle of the store when I turned to go back because I needed to look in the aisle with the house plants. I passed the butcher and I turned and said “hey I really like that cut of ? (can’t remember that part)” and he said “I know.” I said “how did you know?” He replied with “I read it on your blog.” I was stunned for a bit so it took me a second before I replied “my blog?” He said “sure…everyone knows about your blog.” This was a big message to me and I’m not sure what I am going to do about it. I have lots to think about but things are definitely going to change. I just need to figure out the how….Zia
