A thousand gifts

This has been a day.  It started with the van having a dead battery, thankful for some neighbors who helped me get the boys to school and jumped the van.  Then, I got to have the joy of having some dental work done.  For the most of my almost 34 years, I have had great reports from the dentist, only having the occasional partial filling, no real cavities.  And the last time, I had to even have one of those small things done was probably 10 years ago.  So, today when I had to have not one, not two, but three cavities filled....let's just say it was not my favorite thing.  In fact, I felt so traumatized by the drilling and the whirring that I found myself trying to think of other things that I liked even less than the dental work and let me tell you, I could not think of many things.  Fortunately, it is done and hopefully it will be another 10 years before I have to have any more work done.
