Wisdom Tooth Surgery While Awake

I’ve always been afraid of General Anesthesia and most anesthesia of any type.

So much in fact that I’ve had a colonoscopy, a uroscopy, wisdom tooth extraction, unmedicated childbirth – the list goes on and on – and no, I’m not tough, I’m not macho – I’m terrified of going under.

I’ve found that none of these procedures have been unbearable awake.

And though I’ve had a couple of wisdom tooth extractions, I’d never had an impacted tooth removed while awake, and frankly I…

Learning to Pick My Battles

Often, I share about my grandfather (Daddy) and the love he showed his grandchildren. He really was a good man. He was not perfect by any means but he did not waiver on things that were out of sync with doing what was right when no one was around to see. One of his favorite sayings was “fair is fair”. Those words were usually followed up by “ball or strike”. One day, I am going to write a book about his poetic sayings.



Once, I accompanied my grandfather to a meeting held at our… Continue

And then what did you think?

Taylor's favorite phrase to say to me, is: "And then what did you think?" Well that, and the phrase: "No Mom, I don't want to do that right now. Here's the plan, I'll do what I want to do first and then I'll do what you want me to do. Okay Mom?"



Which brings me to my first point.



I used to think I was patient until I had kids. But now...



Well, I find it's my struggle every single day. I have to BREATHE. Sometimes very… Continue

Love Dare Challenge Day 2: Kindness in a skillet

Today's Love Dare was accomplished with a skillet of Hamburger Helper, which my husband loves, but which I find barely palatable. I consider myself an above average cook and am always trying out new recipes or creating new dishes, and while Steve enjoys most of my creations, I get the most satisfied reaction from him when I stick with the basics.



Today I made an effort to stick with the basics of love--patience and kindness.



I have… Continue

Make a Difference

I posted this over on my Mothers Moon blog at www.MothersMoon.blogspot.com



Perhaps I was having a bad day. Perhaps I was frustrated with the same questions, the same concerns that weigh on the minds of many of us from time to time, having to also weigh on the mind of my seven year old. Perhaps I was tired of him asking the same questions over and over again that I have no answers to. Whatever the reason, when he asked his question this time I launched into a long monoluge, my voice… Continue

It's a Dog's Life...

Elsie and Fina stand at my bedroom door. They anxiously await the treat in the pantry, the treat that I give them each morning. They follow me downstairs into the kitchen prancing and voicing their excitement for the yummy morsels they are about to get. They beg, sit, then in a single bite their treats are gone. They stay underfoot as I prepare my morning coffee, hoping that perchance, I will show them mercy and give them one more treat. They stare at me with longing eyes.



Once they… Continue
