An hour later she finishes and I'm exhausted. Fear is very wearing as is pain. I have to admit I really didn't feel any pain but that didn't keep me from the stress of waiting for it.
500.00 for xrays and cleaning. 2790.00 for one tooth to be removed and an implant to be placed with crown.
I go for this implant next Tuesday. I could have bought a car! I could have had a bathroom redone. I could have....

She wanted some chocolate milk and I brewed a pot of caffeine and started dressing for the day. While she watched cartoons I ran a straight iron through my hair and smudged some makeup on and returned to the sofa to keep her company until it was time for me to leave. It was 31 degrees here this morning so I started the car up a couple of minutes before I had to sit on those cold leather seats. By the time I was ready to go after putting Carrie to bed with her Poppy, the car was nice and warm and the traffic was nil. Except for the ungodly hour of this appointment, the fact of not having to deal with a lot of traffic was great.

5:30 AM and the phone is ringing faintly. It's faintly because I'm asleep and as I sift through levels of sleep to surface to the louder ringing of the phone I try not to curse at being awakened after another fitful night of rest. Picking up the phone and cradling it between the pillow and my ear, I try to not get to full wake fullness. I have a plan and it involves drifting back to sleep as soon as this conversation has ended. The house is chilly; the furnace has been turned off so I'm not in a hurry to get up.
I'll be sitting here waiting on everyone to arrive for the gift exchange. I'll continue this later.
I'm showered and dressed and preparing to do something with my hair. I'm almost ready.

Ok, that's my day plan. I hope I don' t find myself passed out on the sofa at noon with the remote control in my hand. That is a possibility that I have to acknowledge.

I'm hiding out in the master bathroom speaking to Ms. K. and telling her what is going on. She was aghast. "Your handy man has made himself comfortable and is now sleeping?" she asked.
I may have to reconsider next weekend and how and who I want to spend it with.

I'm going to make one last trip out of here to Walmart and then back here for a hot shower and some TV time.
It's the hot shower I will be grateful for!

I'm forming an experiment and this typing is a big part of it. I'm using Google docs right now to type this and this program is a lot like Microsoft's Word program. I'm doing this to see if I can upload it to my blog page. If this is possible, I can type my blogs in Google docs and spell check, check for grammar errors then load it to my blog site.

After the first box was wrapped, she would carry it to the tree and place it wherever she wanted. We repeated this wrapping process throughout the morning. What she had learned watching the first box wrapped, she could do on her own afterwards. The pace picked up a little but still took more time then if I had been working alone.

Carrie spent the night here last night and I spent most of the morning picking up after her. I had to explain to her that she would be responsible for putting her stuff away and that I had picked up the last of her stuff, toys and clothes. She eyed me, stepped back and gave me a big smile; a smile that said "you're kidding, right?"
Sometimes you have to get gruff with her; a stern voice is needed to convince her that you are not jesting. If I get to the teeth gritting stage she knows she has moved too close to the edge; the edge of my madness. I delivered her back to her mother's house at 1P M and then at 6PM I had another moment of madness and picked up the phone and called her. I asked if she wanted to spend the night and got a negative reply. It wasn't long after hanging up that her mother called to say that Carrie really did want to spend the night. By this time I had had second thoughts about the offer and told her that I wasn't feeling well. Chasing Carrie didn't look so appealing after I had a moment of sanity. I plan on laying around the remainder of this evening. Chinese take out was supper so the kitchen is clean and I'm headed to the king size bed to watch a little TV and ice my heel.
Tomorrow I will think again about having a Carrie moment.
