I need a root canal.
And I don't want to do it,
I'm not so much worried about the root canal itself ( I'm not.. it can't be more pain than what I am currently experiencing!) I'd just like it pulled since it is getting expensive AND bothersome. I've been dealing with it for OVER a year.
Originally, an old filling was coming out so I went in to the dentist to have that fix. The D-bag cracked my tooth while gouging out the old filling. That left me in pain/sensitivity and "Oh, your tooth is cracked. We're going to need to do a temporary crown".
Temporary crown fixed everything AWESOME and we should have left it at that BUT they pushed to have permanent crown in place. It's been horrible ever since. The crown always felt like it didn't snap into place/ was too high. Hurts to chew on that side, the shape/tallness is off. I've had it ground down every time I've gone in since then and it's been not good.
Now, this past week+ I've had the horrible pain waves, aches, swelling, etc. Who knows what else! So, I need to get it taken care of. If I need a root canal, fine, but if they can pull the darn thing, I say DO IT since that tooth has been nothing but trouble.
Who knows, maybe if they pull it and the pain is gone, I'll find that I really was supposed to be a sweet person all along!
My dentist doesn't do root canals in-house sooooooooo I might just try the U of MN dental school. Has anyone else local used their services??

A GREAT article on a blog that I read about the importance of knowing where all the important paperwork is BEFORE a loved one passes away. Includes the best list I've seen for what information might need to be know
The “Someday File” for That Inevitable Day

So, at the urging of a friend, I wore fake eyelashes with my pirate costume. Using the adhesive that came with the (cheap-o) pair from Wal-mart was fine; however, when I tried to apply the other lashes with my friends expensive "superior" lash adhesive, it BURNED! Very uncomfortable... so back to the Wal-mart cheap adhesive to finish off the project. By the end of the evening, which technically was this morning, the corners of the fake lashes were coming up but I have to say, they still looked neat.
What did you ( or kids or ?) dress as for Halloween?

My friend's grandpa died late Thursday night, while in vacation in Florida. His wife and children were able to fly down to be with him as he was taken off from life support. Now comes the task of seeing his family carry out his wishes, and watching them regroup. Funerals, and death in general, do not bother me. I'm better than most, I think, when it comes to that. I've been lucky enough to have grown up spending summertime visiting relatives/friends of my grandma in nursing homes. I've been there when two friends dads were home for hospice. It doesn't bother me. I'd love to work with seniors, or do something with hospice, or ?
What does bother me is that I have nothing to wear. I know... the funerals have nothing to do with me. No one really cares what I wear. But I do. I remember when a good friends mom passed away. I was at my heaviest weight. The people that I would know attending the funeral were ex-coworkers that hadn't seen me in years and I was a balloon. I had nothing to wear to the funeral that fit me. I had nothing in my closet that fit me.. period. It was that time and space where I couldn't bring myself to buy yet another larger set of clothes to wear. I got to the funeral home early and couldn't make myself go in. I stalled by going to Target.. convinced that maybe I could find something "better" than the too-tight clothes that I had on. Trying on clothes was too frustrating so I wrangled up the courage to cross back over the street to the funeral home. I went inside.. no one said a word about my clothes, weight, anything.. but I still felt out of place, wishing that I wasn't there.
So, now years later, I find myself in the same position. I have nothing appropriate that fits in my size. Sigh. and this time it is my best friend's grandpa's funeral so it's like an extension of my own family.
On a lighter note, I will be in the LIVE studio audience of the Twin Cities Live show today (friday).
