I had a very productive day, yesterday (Monday). In total contrast, today (Tuesday), I have been a slug! Practically all I've done today is, bring in the trash cans, water the seedlings, go to the office, attend a training session all afternoon, and make an appointment to see the dentist!
That last little bit, however, took a lot of effort on my part! You see, I hate going to the dentist and I have postponed going for a long time (I am not willing to admit how long!) In the meantime, I broke a tooth, a filling came out, my dental insurance changed, and I was assigned a new dentist that is covered by the plan. I started getting a toothache on Friday and all weekend long, I've been dealing with it, rinsing my mouth with warm salt water, taking Tylenol, and chewing on a clove (clove oil is supposed to help relieve toothaches). Today, finally, I called the dental insurer to double check if my former dentist was still covered by the plan (he wasn't) and to verify who my new dentist is. Then, I called the new dentist's office and made the appointment. The earliest time they had available is Thursday afternoon. I asked them to let me know if an earlier appointment becomes available, but I doubt it.
Anyway, the long and short of it is, I didn't do anything related to housework after I came home.
Tonight's dinner was a scrambled egg, a potato diced and fried, and my first attempt at making cole slaw, which turned out pretty good, if I say so myself!
Today, I am grateful for:
- a relatively high threshold for pain which lets me tolerate the toothache!
- meeting a few office friends I haven't seen in a long time
- a safe drive to the office and back
- dental insurance
- a sunny and warm day
How was your Tuesday?
