Swine Flu

As a front line worker, this scares the hell out of me.
It's spreading rapidly, and its only a matter of time before cases begin to show up here.
Also the idea that I will be flying in June, and Lil one in July, that scares me even more.
I may not be able to go, nor Lil one either.
This is being downplayed in the press, to lessen panic I presume.
Over one hundred dead in Mexico...
Thats an extremely high percentage of deaths per number of infected.
I'm scared.

From DH...and yes its sadly funny

My engagement ring

Is the most beautiful gift I've ever received
It's unusual to look at, and simply gorgeous
It looks like three rings, but it's one
DH keeps apologizing, says it's not much but just what he could afford
What he could afford was priceless, stunning and priceless
Just my humble opinion LOL

My thoughts today

I'm praying hard
There are things I dream of
I am praying for those things
My needs are simple
I want to rest, and do good without exhausting myself any more
That's it

Back to the grind

Yesterday, well blog faithful yesterday was horrendous.
I went, finally, for my initial dental work to remove the old crown, and then on to the periodontist to prep my gumline to allow a new crown to be made.
When they removed the old crown, they discovered that the decay was so deep in the tooth, that saving the tooth was useless.
Its the tooth I had my first root canal on when I was about 18, and I'd had the same crown all those years..
And believe me, I asked for the crown back, it was an old gold one, and yes I'm going to sell it when I go back out to Utah, that and my wedding band from marriage to ex.
Gold is gold....
Anyway, they had to extract the tooth remnants and the two roots...
OH...MY....LORD IN HEAVEN...
It was horrible. The shots felt like electric shocks, the actual prying out of the roots took forever, about 45 mins I think.
Blood ran down my throat at one point (shudder)
I came home completely exhausted, shattered and drained.
I took my antibiotic, and tylenol.
He gave me Vicodan, but I didn't think it hurt bad enough for that.
I slept off and on most of the day, except when I got up to pick Lil one up from school.
Took Nyquil around 8 and was asleep for the night except for an occassional awakening.
It feels MUCH better this morning.
But OH...MY...LORD IN HEAVEN...
It was awful.

Lil one made me soup, I had beef ramen and slept afterward.
Brushing my teeth this morning was skeery...lol
I was supposed to work today, but one of the guys needed to switch a day, so I switched with him and damn am I glad I did.

Addendum

It snowed today, first time I've seen snowfall in over six years.
And it was perfect, didn't stick to the ground..lol
I'm stiff achy and sore today too.
Hmmmmmmm....wonder why?
Big grin..

AND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DH gave me a diamond engagement ring...
Its beautiful, the most beautiful ring ever...
When I get back to Florida, I'll post a pic of it.
Congratulate me folks, Fifty years old, and I received my first engagement ring.
And believe me, it was worth the wait.

The trip

The flight from Ft Lauderdale to Chicago was bumpy as hell...and packed.
The flight from Chicago to Salt Lake was packed as well, but much smoother.
The flight attendant and I chatted while waiting to deplane at Salt Lake, he was so sweet, he gave me two drink coupons!!!
I'm here folks...spent the night at the Montego Bay in Wendover Nevada.
We had FUN ...
Wink.
Its so good to be here.
