First things first... I went to the dentist today. I decided to go to a different dentist who came highly recommended since, aside from my well documented issues with trusting doctors in general, I wanted a second opinion before somebody starts talking root canal and extractions. I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't had a regular dentist for years, so this crisis has kind of forced me to make a connection with one.
I really liked the dentist I saw today, and was especially won over when he told me he didn't think I needed a root canal! Much to my surprise, he was even ready to get to work on it this morning. I suppose this was good because it spared me all the days and hours of anxiety that would normally precede such a visit.
He ended up drilling (a lot), doing some work on my gums, and applying a temporary crown to hold me over until the permanent one is ready. I happened to have 2 pain pills left at home. This was good. (But there gone now. This is bad.)
I recently cast on for this Classic Elite lacy cardigan.
The yarn is Classic Elite Sundance which is a nice squishy cotton/microfiber blend and is knit in one piece up to the underarms.
And I finished my first (well, actually second if you count the one I decided to frog) SOS sock.
The yarn again is Chameleon Colorworks Bambino. I am thrilled with the striping and the pattern.
Now my 16 year old has us watching a new show called Wipeout. The male species in this house find it hysterical and would like me to watch it with them so I'd better go.
