I'm ba-a-a-a-ck!

I am back from my vacation. It was not really a vacation, more of a busman's holiday. I worked so hard getting stuff ready for the fair. I need to start making lists when I plan these marathon days because I kept finding I needed stuff and didn't have it. I realized, on the way to Walmart to buy the TV remote for SO that I have been promising to buy him for a couple months, that I had nothing to hang my wallhanging with, so I was off to Joanns to get a dowel, then got home and realized we have no saw, so had to take it to his house and have him cut it, then realized I forgot paint for it. So I was out at Lowes on Friday morning getting spray paint. It was such a PITA to get it all ready. And then I got to the fairgrounds on Friday afternoon and they had closed off the place I normally park to drop things off because they didn't want people sneaking into the fair. I gave the girl my best, "Do I look like I am here to pet the pigs?" look, then said the magic words, "The fair book didn't mention you couldn't park in here." Since it wasn't in the book, and I did have a lot of stuff to carry, she let me in. Next year, I put it all in on Thursday, come hell or high water.

Which is not to say it was all miserable. I did spend a few hours on my little beach on Thursday. It was the perfect day for a beach sojourn, hot, but not TOOO hot, water was just cool, not cold, and pretty clean for being bay water. It thunderstormed right when I was leaving, which was fine. I didn't even get sunburned.

And I went to the second appointment of my dental makeover. This visit, he did the prep for my veneers. I actually have an idea now of what the final teeth will look like. It's pretty trippy. They don't quite look real, the finals will look more lifelike, but I have white, aligned teeth in front, and I haven't had those since I was very young. I even tried on my red lipstick, and it looks great. The veneered teeth are a little sensitive, which is a little disconcerting, but I can't blame them. The one that is the most twinge-y had just one little filling in it on the back, and so, it's pretty much been left alone for 20 something years, since it grew in, now I shaved off some of it, and I am sure that was pretty disconcerting. Oh, and he did drill on one of my teeth after it was starting to wake up, so I yowled a little. Whew!

I even got a little stitching done watching the Olympics. I am still working on that biscornu by Barbara Ana. It's a lot of fun. The colors are so bright and hot and sunny. Perfect for these summer days.

I can't wait to hear how you did at the fair!

You just have me squirming in my chair reading about your trip to the dentist :oS I know it will be worth it in the end and I'm very happy for you :o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
