Well I survived the root canal yesterday. Actually I did more than survive, it really wasn't so bad. Yes, it was very long and very uncomfortable, but not nearly as bad as the pain I've been dealing with. Today my gums are a little sore but that's it! Yay! (I actually thought for a moment what a funny picture it would be of me in the dentist chair but decided against asking the dentist to take a picture. Sorry.)
Anyway, thanks for all your encouragement and prayers!
Today started out peaceful... until the boys woke up. Then my friend called because there was a rattlesnake on her back porch. These type of calls get relayed through me to DH who then dashes from work to rescue our friends and the snake.
Well the boys heard the phone call and insisted on joining the adventure. Even though I stalled a bit, we got there before my husband and my 11 year old son was out of the car before I had even come to a complete stop. He is quite the snake hunter himself, yet knows to stay away from rattlers and has called DH the few times he's seen them. But apparently this one had just started to slither off into some bushes and my friend was afraid it would get away so he felt the need to act fast.
By the time I walked into the back yard, he had a 4 foot rattlesnake pinned behind the head with a 5-6 foot pole and boy was it mad. So mad in fact that he couldn't just let it go so he was stuck there until DH arrived about 5 minutes later. I was so... so proud... so nervous... so completely freaked out... that I forgot to take a picture. Sorry again. (DH, btw, couldn't be prouder.)
Before DH returned to work, he took a moment to "play" with the tarantula my friend had found in her bathtub and decided to keep as a pet. (Just so you know, I find all this snake/spider behavior just a bit more than bizarre myself.) Once again, I forgot to take a picture. I hope you can forgive me for all the fascinating pictures that I haven't shown you today.
Maybe this will help...
It's nothing at all like I described it, is it Julie? Apparently my vision was impaired by the noisy ladies at the yarn store last weekend. I thought it was more green and purple than blue... but I was seeing red at the time so that could explain some of it.
