I had to have a filling a couple of weeks ago with this new dentist and the cost was $270 but he brought it down to $115 for me. We are saving so much, I wish I found him sooner!
Anyway, not too much else going on today. I'll head home after the dentist to make lasagna for the family. Chicken and veggies for me. Boo!
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!
That IS a good deal!

Good luck at orientation! Hope you are liking the gym you joined.

That's great that you found a dentist willing to work with you, it really makes a difference.

Hope you have a wonderful day, friend!!

On the bright side, we might get a frost this weekend! Not sure, but it's supposed to be in the upper 30's in Savannah, and it's always a few degrees cooler inland. Hope so!

Y'all have a great day!


Glad things have calmed down. Have fun at walmart!! I suggest hiding in the Christmas section.

Having a good dentist who's also affordable is priceless. If our dentist ever retires ... well, I shudder to think of it. He's the best.

I'm busy because we have our annual trade fair tomorrow. Each year we invite as many manufacturer to have stands at the fair, to advertise their newest products.

I'll relieved once the fair is over.
Hope it all goes well!!!!!

Thanks, for asking buddy!!!!

I didn't realise you had hurt yourself. Hope you are not in too much discomfort and you are better soon.

In case any of you don't know my 5 year old loves nutcrackers, he has a small collection but he is always wanting to add more.
The ornament doesn't fall far from the Christmas tree.
I love nutcrackers to!! Yeah you got to get it for him.
