Golden Cup Award!!

What a nice surprise from the sweet Jingle!   I love presents and this one made my day. 

See, today was my Friday....which should have been a good thing, right?  I had a busy day planned at work trying to get everything done so that I could make a clean escape this afternoon.   I was at my desk working away and grabbed a healthy snack that I had brought to work with me....a Kashi Granola Bar.  One bite into that sticky mess of goodness and something felt really odd on one of my bottom teeth.  Part of it was missing!  Gone in that bite of granola bar...just that quickly.

So I had to go in for emergency xrays this afternoon and will go in for a temporary crown in the morning.  Not a great day for me....but it could have been worse. 

I am thankful that....

I was able to get in to see the dentist today instead of waiting until tomorrow.

The root is not exposed so I'm not in pain and I don't have to have a root canal.

It didn't cost me as much as I thought it would and my insurance should be pay 1/2.

So you see....an award today was just what I needed.  Thank you again, Jingle!  If you haven't been over there to see how awesome that blog is, you should.  You will be glad you did.


  1. Good luck at the dentist! If it had to happen, at least you're not hurting and you can get this taken care of quickly ....

  2. My husband just had to have an emergency root canal for $1200. Can't wait to see what the insurance pays.....

  3. Glad you're not in pain! It's amazing how many good things you pulled out of that. Hope all goes well with your temporary.

  4. Ugh,,,root canal. That hurts both the mouth and the wallet! Good luck.

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

  5. Bless your heart. I just hate going to the dentist. I went last month and had two cavities (I am blaming them on the pregnancy). But luckily they are all fixed and I don't have to go back for a year.
    I hope everything goes well with the temporary.
    Have a better day!

  6. sorry to hear about the tooth. it's so timely i have a kashi chewy bar at the moment. feel better and enjoy the weekend. i wish today is friday.

  7. Thank you, everyone! Temp crown is on with minimal pain during the process. My jaw, however, is really sore now and I have injured my tongue. Other than that, it was okay.

    No root canal, Alex. Thank God! The root was not exposed.

    Kayni, be careful with those dear! They are yummy but dangerous to your teeth!
