A Win, a Giveaway, and Christmas Service!

Wow!  Look what I won!  It only cost $1200.00!

This is from the nice dentist office that took me in when my own dentist couldn't see me until Thursday!   I found out that the tooth that gave me so much trouble was cracked all the way across and was absessed! So... a root canal, a crown, an antibiotic, pain killers, and a boat-load of money later, it's on the mend. (I hope)  Thanks for all your well wishes and concern. 

This shirt was in the tooth-looking package. 

OK, are you ready for a great giveaway?  No, not this shirt!  I'm keeping IT forever!  Camille, at Make it Work Mom , is having a giveaway of children's personalized shirts. Perfect for your own child, a grandchild,  a niece or nephew. Check it out!

Man, t-shirts and toothbrushes are getting so expensive these days! But money is no object when it comes to the absence of pain and discomfort, right? I hope you start feeling better soon!

Wow- you are SO lucky! And all you had to do was get a raging tooth ache? Where do I sign up? Does the apple pudding come with? Hope you're feeling better.

Seriously, money doesn't even matter in those situations. We have no clue how we are gonna handle our expenses with the recent accident, but I don't even care. You just do it.

I hope all of your dental woes are gone now! Poor thing :(

It blows my mind at how much dental costs are! Why couldn't one of our children have been a Dentist? Sorry about your recent expensive t-shirt.

Natalie said...

Glad you're feeling better.
I made the cakes. They are cooling and looking and smelling yummy. Thanks again.

Valerie said...

Hope you're feeling better now--after all that money and pain. I completely feel your pain of handing over so much money. One of my daughters got braces on Monday and on Tuesday I had my regular check-up (with the extra cost of the x-rays they do of your whole mouth every 5 years) and I was sad to see the money go. :) Glad to be able to pay it though.

Valerie said...

Well, look at those awesome freebies! That was worth all the pain of the toothache...or NOT! :)
Glad you're feeling better.

I got a bag full of apples from my dad today...I wonder what I should do with them? :)

Jenny said...

I will have to check out the freebies! Glad your tooth ache is gone and your mouth is on the mend.

Small House said...

WHAT???? You even got a t-shirt??? I didn't even get a toothbrush. DARN! I've bought and paid for his boat I swear!

Hope you're feeling better thoguh. Sometimes it's worth the moola.

Oh my goodness...I just ran across your blog and kept, she looks so familiar. I think I used to baby-sit for you when we lived in the Gilbert 4th or 5th Ward. I remember your cute little family, how kind you were to a nerdy teen-ager and what a great example you were to me.
