Of course I had to count her little toes - isn't that what Southern women do? We like to make sure everything is where it should be. I love that look on her face.."what - ya never seen a foot before"?
I ran across this picture that was taken in May or June of 2000. That is Douglas and Jessie cuddling on the sofa. She was pregnant here and not really showing very much. She was due in December but as we all know, Page decided she didn't want to wait until her due date and she came in September.
Matt stopped by for a short visit and of course, Miya took it upon herself to let him know just how much we have all missed him.
I called Geral several weeks ago to see if she could "baby-sit" me while Dwight was out of town. It turns out she and Sheila had recently gotten home from their trip to West Palm Beach to see Janet.
Miya was looking out at the pitiful amount of snow we finally got recently. It didn't even cover the grass in the front yard. Kelly said she left work early and was still trapped on the highway for five hours. The really sad thing is they got twice as much snow in Georgia than we got here.
I know - not the most attractive picture. The picture above is my upper teeth since the surgery and radiation which has resulted in my having chronic dry mouth. I was told I could even lose my teeth due to the dryness of my mouth so I have tea or water beside me all the time or keep gum on hand to chew. Dry mouth is very uncomfortable and at times very painful. I go for a cleaning about every three months now instead of six. My dentist is also having to put tiny fillings in several of my teeth and I mentioned to him that I was learning how to smile with my mouth closed because my teeth are so dark now. The next time I went, he was almost finished when he mentioned quietly to me that he wanted to try something. He said he didn't know if it would work so I would literally be a guinea pig and it might not work or last but he didn't like to think of me not smiling if there was something he could do to help. He asked if I would be willing to be a guinea pig and I said definitely.
These are the results! I am so very, very happy. He warned me again they may not last (veneers) - that they may also become discolored or not stay on but I don't care - I love them. Dwight bought me some Crest whitening toothpaste to use along with the Biotene toothpaste and the prescription high fluoride toothpastes I already use. Yeah- I have to be careful or I'm going to look like a dog with rabies - foam mouth!!! It was so sweet of him though. I kept thinking about what I could do to show my appreciation and finally decided a gift certificate to Parizade would be nice. Now - just to figure out how to get over there and buy the gift certificate! I found his and his wife's home address and will send it to them in a card but I need to get the actual certificate!
