Tooth has started to react to hot so I'm even more limited on drinks/foods. I was hoping to avoid/delay the root canal for now ($$$) but it looks like a very pleasant option right now.

call around for prices, but you're probably right in that you'll have to do it now rather than later. Look who's talking. I've needed one for months on one tooth apparently. And my wisdom teeth have pretty much overshadowed every other pain I've had. I'm not looking forward to after, but I'm looking forward to being done with major work!

Just keep the ibuprofen flowing, my dentist said to over lap it, every 3 hours, not every 4, to stay on top of pain.

redveg: unfortunately i can't go in late or leave early, i am a nurse so i have to be there when i get there. it is a huge pia to leave early as they need to find people to cover my patients. ugh! the baby was up a good part of the night coughing his lungs out, and ds#3 still is having ear pain and a fever. darn kids! lol

Oh, those poor Littles. Sending healing energy.

Foggy, today. All the snowmelt makes for misty mornings.

Argh! So much interesting discussion, no time to multiquote!

Welcome,ShadowMoon!

Femme rouge -- rough about the housing issue So glad you are getting it fixed, hope your displacement is as short as possible.

Inge -- seriously? All those appliances lost. Oh, my. Hope insurance will cover it. Glad you have power again! How did the kids do with the outage?

Mamaofthree -- I hate making that kind of decision too. I'd probably go into work. It would depend on whether I thought dh could be alert enough to care for the children.

Love the meditation with the kindergarten children, shanniesue.

Wishing you luck and more luck with the job SunshineJ. I wouldn't be able to handle one husky, much less several. I know a lovely one who ripped down an 8 foot backyard fence, just digging around under it. The owners had to replace with chainlink.

Thanks for the insight on earthquakes, Clay, and ITA with you, Cari, and I think, Sunshine, that the Earth takes care of herself.

I finally got that video to work, bluets. What is this Crystal Web of which this Lord Don dude speaks? I browsed the same site and came across a vid telling you how to cast a circle, charge and bury a crystal to link one to the Crystal Web. Don't feel moved to link to an organization that I don't know much about, but I was thinking that if anyone needs to set up a matrix for the sending of energy it is the MDC pagan circle.

ETA Here is the link to that vid on making a crystal access point for the crystal web, whatever it is. Anyone ever bury crystals for the purpose of communicating or sending/receiving energy? I can see me doing this.

I have to help my 3 yr old find his raincoat. It is Very Important to him. Have a good day!

My mouth/face/head feels a little better this morning - at least, the ear and temple pain is almost gone.

But...

I have a high dose of Ibuprofen every 6 hours... And now, I suspect they are responsible for the world spinning around me. I'm so dizzy... and no position makes it better. No matter if I lay down, sit or stand - I see the walls/ceiling spinning around me.

Ha, thanks! The pic is if a giraffe I worked with for several years at my old job. He is an amazing animal with lots of personality for a giraffe, (as you can see).

It's chilly and snowing little, wet flakes over here. DS has been unusually cranky and I think he's coming down with something. Hopefully not, but I think we're going to lay low today just to make sure.

I hope everyone has a good day!

Ugh! it's just like standing on train tracks, isn't it? You see the headlight of the train, you feel the tracks rumbling, you know it's coming - but it's just not here yet and you don't know if you'll be able to jump and avoid it or not. But there's no doubt you KNOW it's coming. We had that with DS a couple weeks ago. Thankfully we seemed to dodge off the tracks at the last minute and he didn't get really sick like I was expecting!

Fun filled day today (totally sarcastic! LOL!). Let's see, the MIL is coming tomorrow, which means I have 10 loads of clean, folded laundry to put away, 6 loads to wash (what can I say, it's been a rough few weeks!), the house to pick up though it's not actually too terrible, I need to run to the store, make cookies, figure out dinner and I must take a shower. I didn't take one yesterday and I have this vague notion the kids will tell me tonight I'm starting to smell like a troll! Have a great day everyone!

Valerie, if your tooth is abscessed, can you swish hydrogen peroxide? I got numerous infections around my wisdom teeth before I had them removed, and I would constantly swish with it, and it would tame down the infection Of course this won't help if it's a root canal-type issue. Teeth pain IS the worst.

I'm thinking I'm going to say no to the job, which feels a little counter-intuitive to me, but I think the commute would exhaust me. With my last job, I had a somewhat similar commute, but I had to be in later, out earlier, only 4 times a week, and I could easily get to a middle-ground suburb for DH to pick me up. It worked pretty well, though there were some hairy days for sure.

We can't see anything on the gums so the infection must be at the root. There is a painful spot on my palate.

I'm going to call the pharmacist to see if there is something I can do to help with the spinning...


I saw many new members in our circle: Welcome!


Thinking about you all!

That's what I felt like last year, when I had to have mine. OMG, exquisite pain, that-- tooth pain. Nothing like it. The root canal felt good by comparison.

Right?

That telecommute job sounds sweet! $24 an hour for working at home? Dang, wish I could hook up with a job like that.

I'd probably go in for the first shift, and see how it goes. Maybe warn them that you may not be available for the Friday shift. Hope everyone feels better soon!

Mamas, in 3 more days I will be in my love's arms...oh, swoon. Oh, I so can't wait. We have been on the phone more than not, these past few days.
I'm trying to pack right now. I have to leave the house at like 4:30am on Saturday, so I just want to be able to jump in the car and go. It's 2 hours drive to the airport, and I want to be able to be there at least an hour ahead of time. At least I got non-stop flights this time!
He's got a lead on a really sweet job. Keep your fingers crossed that he gets it! He has 2 days of interview next week while I'm there-- 16 hours worth of interview! But it's good, cause this is the 3rd cut and he's made it this far

Clay, how's you and yours?

Well, I didn't make it through the Feb circle, but I'm going to try again this month! I got through the 4.5 pages there are so far, which is a goods start!

Welcome to the new folks, and healing thoughts to the sickies. For the tooth ache, sometimes if x-rays aren't showing anything it's really a very bad sinus infection. My dentist told me the story of a guy that he just couldn't help -- they worked on it for months, and he finally convinced the guy to get the sinus angle checked out, he got that treated and was finally pain free -- it was never the tooth. I hope whatever it is, you get to the pain-free part quickly!

Someone mentioned Sword of the Lady by S. M. Stirling (sorry, I didn't go back for who ) I've been really enjoying that series -- it was very spiritually uplifting for me to see a world where the goddess and the god were part of every-day life in all the little ways. Until I picked up my copy of To the Sunrise Lands that I'd gotten for Christmas '07 a few months ago and (finally) started the second set of books I hadn't really realized how much reading/hearing the common comments/sayings that are strongly Christian around me influenced my choices of words and even thoughts, until I saw goddess/god comments substituted.

My boys are being really cute. they've already made "thank you" cards for the Ostara Bunny, they want to leave them out on the coffee table for her to find when she hides the eggs with little toys and stickers inside. I guess that means she can't slack off this year!

I got to go to a wonderful Women's herbal/aromatherapy class with Kamala here in town last week. She lived here in the mid 90's and comes over from Colorado to teach a class about once a year. What wonderful scents she has. She has blends for ritual, for holy days (Sabats, Moons, etc.) and for Kabbalah (which I know nothing about, except that they smelled divine!) as well as healing/heath and just for fun. She has sampler packs and sells sample sizes on her Kamala's Own website, the sample size prices are very reasonable. After my taxes are done, I'm going to order the 8 sabats in sample sizes to share with my study group this year. That should be enough for us to all have some. Her Mother blend (for women ~ 35 to menopause) has been a wonderful way to de-stress (what it's supposed to do). It smells great, and I really enjoy it.

Hope everyone's March keeps getting better!



Blessings,

Oh my DOK and Valerie, I cannot imagine. I am such a baby even a little pain makes me cranky. You are wonderwomen!

I love this Maia, I may have to steal it and use it, to remind myself!

WRT the Earth's axis, I agree with many who've said it's just a day in the life of the earth. My husband on the other hand would, I'm sure, say it's a sign of the coming of the end of the world (as we know it, that is).

I"m feeling a little spring feverish, though I do like winter. I just really want the kids to get out and do things after school instead of watching TV. Man has that thing been on alot.

I need more magic in my life, I think. I see some daily things as magical, but I find myself feeling in search of something more on a mystical-woo-woo-bend the laws of nature sort of magic. I wish I knew more about ceremonies and rituals and whatnot, because I reckon I could use something like that in my life.

Otherwise things are going well. My little DD is now 2 and my how time has flown!

Can I get an "Aww Hell"! I have terrible teeth, it's a genetic thing mostly, though I do cop to some blame as well. About 2 years ago I had a "bad tooth" that the dentist refused to do a root canal on (I'm convinced so he'd have more work to do in it later) and basically drilled it out, "packed" it with filling stuff, and it's been patiently waiting for a crown ever since. Until today - actually until about 30 min ago. I was eating a pbj with homemade blackberry jam and one of the seeds if you can believe it just hit this thing wrong and took a huge chunk out of it. It doesn't hurt. Yet. But it feels loose. Damnit. So now I'm looking for a dentist. The best part? When we moved here we were offered the option of the state dental plan. It covers everything, so it made sense - otherwise my mom offered to keep up the payments on our kick-ass coverage from my old job. So now that I need it? Yeah, so far no one takes it. Just great!

I'm scared. I hate dental work so much and who knows what kind of dentist I'll end up with. Sigh. Ah hell.
post #97 of 649
oh my goodness. That's pretty much exactly what happen to that 5th tooth the dentist is going to save. I had a root canal when I was 13 that was never crowned What broke mine was a milk soaked chocolate chip cookie...

I'm sorry

Ok I don't feel so bad about the blackberry seed then. No one takes the insurance that I've found so far. This is SO not the time for an unexpected expense! Just when it looked like things were getting just a little bit better... but that's ok. We'll get through it, we always do! There's only been one area of the "tooth" that's sensitive, and it's seeming like this missed that part, so cross your fingers that I may have a day or two to call all over and find someone to deal with this who actually takes the coverage we have!

Hey all...

Just doing a quick update, but hugs and stuff to those with health issues (dental or otherwise)...

This is getting to be a ridiculous rollercoaster:

Down, Monday sucked.

Up, Tuesday was better.

Down, I found out why one of my lab techs has been out. Her long-term bf kicked in a door when she stayed at a friend's house when they had a fight. She was out all day Tuesday trying to get paperwork to make him give back their daughter.

Up, the above co-worker got her daughter back just before we left work yesterday.

Down, my mom took me and DS out to supper and spent the whole time taking over parenting duties.

Up, today was really good. Chatted, went to lunch, got work done...

Down, above coworker tried to call and is now not answering her phone. So now we're all on edge about that.

Up... still waiting on this one...

i adore this. especially since it sounds so like something my grandmother would have said! & because i just had a mini-sob-session missing my grandparents. <sniff> i learned everything i know about gardening from them, and i'm (fingers still crossed) about to have my own real garden for the first time, and i wish wish wish more than anything in the world that i could share it with them.


aubergine, the crystal thing intrigues. i've been feeling drawn to spirit quartz, but i'm not sure what to do with/about it......


springing signs.... frolicking lambs, singing birds, blooming bulbs and budding trees...
