Life in My World—Four for Friday

Photobucket

Cali, Trent, Abe, Grace, Ty, Ande, Trevor

1. I mentioned last week that Calvin and I went to Utah and Idaho. We went down to see three of the kids (Trent, Trevor and Ande) in three days. Trent and Crisa had a new baby a few weeks ago so we went to see them first.

The baby, Kiara, smelled oh so good and I swear I don’t remember hands and feet that perfect or miniature. It was fun to spend time with them and make plans to spend more.

2. I made a list of things I want to get done before the year ends. One of them was to go to the dentist because I haven’t been in five years. I got that done today . . . and NO cavities. I didn’t even care they didn’t give me an expandable ring when I left.

3. Ray is coming tonight so that he and Calvin can finish building the butcher block table. It’s going to be absolutely beautiful.

Since Ray doesn’t care for chocolate, it’s all about caramel when he’s here. Except tonight and it’s about orange popcorn balls.

4. One of our friends is having a birthday party tomorrow night. Number 90. We’ve been looking forward to it for two weeks. He is our friend that still wears his WWII officer uniform pants to Church suppers (and they look very smart on him). I just discovered yesterday that he still wears the belt he made when he was 15 and in high school. Can you imagine still being the same size you were 75 years ago? Unbelievable.

A call to the dentist for appointments is on my to-do list. (Though it's only been six months since our last appointments, we too are hoping for no cavities!)

That he's celebrating ninety has something to do with the fact he still fits in his pants and belt, I'm sure.

Mom,

You forgot to mention what your other goals for this year are. You know, the ones besides visiting the dentist... one being the goal to get your MAMMIES GRAMMIED (for the first time).

I loved your boxes over the heads of Ande, Trevor, and Trent. I can't wait to see what you write about Trevor and Trent on your 52 Blessings.

I'm not sure I've told you today, but I think you are simply incredible.

Cali's mention of your "other goal" has me cracking up...that's something I dread as much as dental visits. Hm...

I can't wait to see that table! Make sure Cali blogs about it when it is done. Have fun this weekend!

I just turned to David and Said, "If Neighbor Jane can go 5 years without going to the dentist I am no longer going to feel embarrassed about it being 4.5 years for me." but I better get on it quick because if I surpass you then all embarrassement will come back! Because you know you are the perfect neighbor who I look up to so you made me feel a little bit better!! But I think I won't be as lucky with no cavitities. I have a chipped tooth too, grrr!!

Cali's comment cracked me up, you better get that done ASAP!!!

How would it be?
I think I have had zero cavities twice in my life. All thanks to dear old Dad!
