Do you ever have to go back on your blog to see what you have already written about? I tend to do that each time I write a post. I guess I don’t want to write about something I’ve already written about. 🙂 I’m actually writing this in my bedroom where I’m told I can not leave right now. Hubby & the kids are wrapping up presents for me. Good thing I have my laptop. They did this the other day too. I can’t imagine what they got me that they are still picking things up to wrap. Like they said, maybe some of the boxes are just empty. 🙂
We went to our homeschool groups Christmas party on Monday night. That was a lot of fun. The woman who led it this year did such a great job. All the kids had so much fun, and they enjoyed the presents they got. Paul and I just enjoyed chatting with friends. Plus Paul had some time with a friend of his earlier that day. I always try to make sure when he wants to do something with friends that he can. He always lets me do whatever I want, and I have more time during the day than he does. So even if I’m tired when he mentions it, I always say yes, go have fun. He has one friend that always calls me by my last name and says, “Mrs. ****, can Paul come out and play?” lol It is so funny. Who can say no to a grown man asking like that?
Today we started our last days of lessons for the year. I love saying that. The kids will be done by Friday at the latest, though they may be done by Thursday. But today I also had to go to the dentist. I haven’t been to the dentist for a cleaning in about 3 years, and it showed on my gums. I have severe periodontal disease, which is essentially a real bad gum disease. So bad that they couldn’t even do all the cleaning today, only 1/4 of my teeth were done. I have to go back 2-3 more times before they are done. After that I wait for 3 months, making sure I brush twice a day & floss at least once a day. And if all goes well, when I go back for my checkup 3 months later, my gums should be healing well, and I’ll just have to keep up with it all. Otherwise, if it doesn’t look better in 3 months then they will refer me to a gum surgeon. Ugh. Obviously I’m praying that in 3 months my gums will be a lot better. We’ve made sure that the kids have always brushed morning & evening & flossed. But me, well not so much. But believe me that is going to change now. I really don’t want to have to have surgery. Unfortunately my next cleaning, so they can get all my teeth cleaned, couldn’t be scheduled until the 30th. I want the hygienist that I had today, so I’m willing to wait. But I’m on the list of calls if other people cancel. So hopefully I’ll get a call sometime about an earlier appointment.
Tomorrow Paulie has his last open gymnastics time for the year. They are closing until January. But they are having a little party/play time tomorrow. Paulie is really looking forward to it. Plus, I will probably get together with a friend for coffee during that time. You know me, I love getting together with friends. With this new season I’m in, I try to do it as much as I can. At the end of the week we are going to our church’s Christmas play. We’ll either go on Friday night or Saturday night, it depends on Paul’s work. I hear it’s really good. Can’t wait to see it.
Well, my gums are now starting to ache a bit, and the family is waiting to watch a movie together, so I should be going. And yes, don’t worry, I will be brushing my teeth later tonight. 🙂
