They gave him wax to put between the braces and the lips in case kissing was painful.
I guess he didn't tell them about the unicycle.
Son #1 got his four wisdom teeth removed at $350.00 per tooth. Someone's taking a nice vacation and its not us!
If our boys don't take the unicycle and join the circus perhaps dentistry would be a good professional choice.
And finally, interspersed throughout the above annoyances and general busyness, were several blond moments, or, as they shall be called from here on, Joy Moments.
Joy Moment #1
Looking and looking and looking for the Crock Pot recipe book and then finding it (after the meal was cooked) tucked safely in between the metal outer and the ceramic inner of the crock pot.
The corners of the pages are a wee bit charred.
Trying to open the car door with the computer chip key, door will not unlock, expecting huge bills to repair the computers, worrying that I will be late for the orthodontist, only to realize that it was not my car that I was trying to open - my car was in the parking stall next to it.
In my defence, they were both dark navy.
Came out of the washroom at work and my skirt was tucked into my panties - really unattractive and a co-worker had to notice it for me.
Joy Moment #4
Her" Hi, how are you today?"
Me: (inward groan crap! another telephone survey). "Fine thanks"
Her: "What's your favourite radio station?"
Me: " Hello?"
Her: "no,you're on the air with SunFm, if you had answered 'SunFM Vernons favourite music station' you would have won today's amount of $115.00."
Me: "okay, well, thanks anyway."
Shit! CBC never gives away money and I could have used that $115.00.
And finally, this weekend is the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend and yes, in spite of all my complaining I am thankful.
I'm thankful for my great family and that we are all healthy and thriving.
I am thankful for all my friends - blog friends included!
I am thankful that I live in a country of people who are not only tolerant but accepting.
and with that I leave you with these words.
They are not my words but could be if I were poetic.
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know everything,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.
Happy Weekend, friends!
