"Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary"

How does my garden grow............Well, not with silver bells and cockle shells, and pretty maids all in a row! My zucchini squash came up and mysteriously withered and dyed, and now one of my yellow squash is doing the same??? Hmmmm...... I think it might be the first layer of dirt we put down. We are pretty thrifty around here, so Shawn went to the Atoms storage yard and loaded up a pick-up full and brought home. The dirt is from here and there jobs where some of the guys have had to dig for lines and then they come dump the remainder out at the storage yard. That's my guess anyway! Where my zucchini withered, I planted another row of yellow squash, so we will see how it does?? I am hoping well, I am already craving a fresh sliced tomato with salt, and some good old boiled squash=) Maybe even some home made salsa, mmmm=) Can't wait!!!

Wisdom Teeth

Well, I finally took the step and had all four wisdom teeth pulled on Friday morning, ouch!!!! I must say I was more nervous about being put to sleep than the recovery!! I like to be in control, or at least aware of things that are going on around me, and I don't like to be put out, so I was pretty uneasy about the whole thing:) Before it was my turn to go back, I could hear the saw, just a cutting away, on someone else, and let me tell you that just really put my mind at ease, totally being sarcastic!!!!!! I think the hardest part for me about the whole recovery thing was my mouth being numb allllll dayyyy!!! I couldn't feel to drink, or swallow to get my pills down, and gagged every time I did. It has been two days and it really hasn't been that bad, or as bad as I thought it would be, partly thanks to the vicadin!!!! Don't get me wrong, it has hurt pretty bad, and I have pretty swollen cheeks, but it could be much worse I'm sure! I am not the kind of person to lay around rest when I am home, so I had trouble with that one..... I was up bright and early Sat. morning cleaning the house=) Shawn had three removed a few months ago, and of course, he thought he was dying..........sorry Shawn=) He pretty much milked it all he could, I think!! So, I was expecting the worse!!! I am planning on returning to work tomorrow, we will see if I am successful???
