Dental Implant Surgery
Thursday, April 07, 2011      5 comments

Yesterday I had implant surgery where a molar had been pulled. It lasted 2 1/2 hours and went extremely well. With the exception of a small knot on my jaw and slight tenderness (to the touch) on my cheek, I don't even feel like I had dental wo... Read more

I wrote the other day that I was being tempted way too much by my sweet tooth and that the problem started during the holidays. It has been a very trying time for me. I hate it when my will power takes a hiatus! Well, the good news is I g... Read more
Help Me Get Away From The Sweets!
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      4 comments

When Thanksgiving came, I cheated and had an abundance of sweets - 3 desserts to be exact. But once it was over, I didn't continue to have much of a craving. At least, that's what my memory tells me. Gradually, the holiday sweets started ... Read more
A Little No-Sweat Lesson for Me
Friday, December 31, 2010      1 comments

Sometime during my not-so-brief life I learned to always put the cap back on the dish detergent. Although the origin of this practice is unknown, I do know exactly why I do it - so, if the bottle gets knocked over, I won't have a spill. Sounds... Read more

I clinch my teeth during the night. My jaws are way out of alignment too. For these reasons, I wear a splint (night guard) during the night. My problem is that I've been having severe toothaches on the left side, and my teeth don't touc... Read more

Tomorrow my dad will turn 80; my sister, 50; and my son, 26. On top of that, my grandmother would turn 97 if she were still living. Kind of a crooked line, but it's cool anyway. My husband and I hosted a birthday dinner for dad yesterday.... Read more
Decreasing Points Per Day, Saving Time
Saturday, November 27, 2010      3 comments

Sometimes, because of how much an activity means to us, we can get carried away spending too much time doing it. I absolutely love getting SparkPoints, but I've realized how dreadful the amount of time on the computer can be when I'm loving ear... Read more

Thursday, October 28, 2010      4 comments

Sometimes when I want to post a comment to a topic, I notice one before mine that doesn't address the issue. I sometimes wonder if some people hurry through, only looking at the titles of the topics. I think, if this is the case, these p... Read more

Yesterday was a wonderful day! The weather was beautiful. My husband and I helped our daughter and son-in-law with their yardwork. We were outside for 3-4 hours. All four of us did our share. We talked, laughed, and reminisced while we work... Read more
