What nice teeth you have...
This sort of sums up my day yesterday.
I spent much of the day, from about 11:30 am until about 5:30 pm, in the dentist chair. My dentist took me at my word when I asked if I could just be sedated and have him fix everything at once before I get braces...so, yesterday was all of the work on the left side of my mouth. He replaced old fillings, prepared for 2 crowns, and removed a tooth to make room for my crowded front teeth to be gently (?) adjusted via orthodontia into straight, lovely teeth.
I came home heavily drugged, slept, and today am remaining pleasantly spacy on pain medication.
I am having interesting dreams, including one in which I learned that my mother decided to grow marijuana plants in her backyard, and another in which I found myself driving around in a VW bug with Niles Crane. Go figure.
I'm not operating heavy machinery, or even light machinery, today, so no sewing for me.
I am, however, contemplating a tooth-themed quilt!
