It's hot and here I am drinking a coffee. I had to put my hair up, just so I can drink my java. I had an Orthodontist appt. today. Because, it's in the morning, I usually don't drink coffee. I don't want to kill the nice people who are fixing my teeth with bad, coffee breath.
My time has come. I need to make a consultation appointment to see what exactly I need done. I have never had any kind of surgery done, ever. I know oral surgery isn't as bad as replacing a lung but I am a bit scared. I don't know what's going to happen. I'm actually looking forward to the consultation, so the unknown will be known. It's going to cost $135.00 upfront but hopefully I will be refunded.
I made an appointment with the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. I haven't been to the dentist since we moved here. Almost two years. Thankfully, we all take good care of our teeth. I will brush the kids teeth when needed. From Lance all the way to Josh. If I have to, I'll use a wash cloth. Josh, flosses really well. I'll floss the younger ones at least once a month. I know, that sounds bad, but I do brush them good at least once a week.
I also need to talk to the the dentist about my root canals that I had done when I was prego with Josh. I had a horrible dentist in California. The goofy people didn't even remember that they drilled a small hole to relieve pressure I was having. After Josh, was born (no one wanted to do anything with a prego lady) I went back to have the root canals done and they asked who drilled the hole. I was shocked! My goodness. Anyway, once the root canals where done, they didn't tell me I was suppose to have them capped or put a crown on them. So, here I am 13 years later, finally getting it done. Yikes.
I was going to have it done two years ago but it's expensive. I need four teeth crowned. I'm not certain, we will do the crowning this year but the oral surgeon needs to know because it makes a difference with the surgery.
I would appreciate any prayers. Lupe and I really don't know how we are going to pay for all of this but it needs to be done. I can't chew right because my bite is off. I can't chew much on my left side. On my right, it's very hard to eat small things and at times I do have to chew with my mouth open (I do use a napkin, so I won't gross anyone out). Those of you who have a nice aligned jaw, thank the Lord, because it really is a blessing. I miss being able to chew normal.
I have three appointments in the two weeks. Tomorrow I get my eyes checked, the week after I have the consultation and dentist appointment. Oh, what fun =)
Lupe and I are parents to a teenager! Our first teenager. Wonder what changes are in store for us.
This is why the Mr. Sparrow poster. I saw it at the store and knew Joshua, would really appreciate it.
Joshua, wanted to invite friends from church and I would have loved to, but our house can barely fit us. With so much rain and all, we decided to keep it small with Grandpa, Uncle Joe and his friend, and Auntie and Uncle along with their four kiddos.
Yesterday, I mentioned that I am sitting and reteaching penmanship with Brent. I wanted to show you his writing from earlier this week.
Why do I have a picture of Mr. Sparrow in my kitchen? I don't even like Mr. Sparrow. I think, I saw the first two movies and don't remember much, other than I don't care for it too much. I think I didn't like the ghost, the romance scenes and the gloomy beginning of the first one. I don't remember if there was any bad language.
If they could at least leave out the romance scenes, I'd be happy.
Anyway, I don't care for my children to watch the Pirates of the Caribbean. My Sweets, thinks it's okay, I'm a bit more strict when it comes to what the children watch. My kids have watched a few movies that I don't approve of. Thankfully, for the most part, my Sweets and I agree with what our kids are allowed to see.
Some how Josh, happened to watch half of the movie. Can't remember where, but he thought Mr. Sparrow was so funny.
I guess there is a new Pirates of the Caribbean out, and he's seen the previews. Of course he thought Mr. Sparrow again, was just soooo funny.
Back to my question, why do I have a picture of him in my kitchen? Well, I'll have to answer that in another post.
I need to get up earlier in order to school all my kiddos. I wake at 7:30-40. Have coffee and computer time. My dad comes every morning to visit and have coffee too. I jump in the shower around 8:30-40ish. By the time I'm done showering, dressed and had breakfast, it's almost 10:00.
My tutoring sessions with Caleb and Brent alone are about an hour each. I try to fit Fast Track Reading, Phonics Pathway for Spelling Dictation and reinforce rules, a little bit of math, and now penmanship.
I've only had two, one hour sessions today, with a few quick ones sprinkled in. At noon we have lunch, then try to get more school in before our 2:00 quiet time.
Ethan, copied the days of the week and our phone number. I cropped out the phone number.
It's hard to believe that Lance's K year is almost up. One more week and he'll be a 1st grader. Although he still acts like a toddler at times.
Here is what Lance, has completed today.
