Good idea

Would you believe that the dental chair is not my favorite location? The last couple of trips, I keep thinking that there is a better way to do this.

And today I remembered my MP3 player. An audio book is the best way to go. I tried listening to music and found that frequent changes meant I was playing more attention to the dental work.

<h4>Audio Books</h4>

Concentrating on hearing the story, I was able to avoid anticipation of “what comes next.” After all, what could be better than the confusion of a Cetacean scientist total life disruption boggle after seeing the words “Bite Me” on the flukes of a diving humpback whale?

That and the meds I had taken for a migraine.  Added into this whole decision process was the Sieman’s guy who showed up with the new fridge door just as I was going out the door. DH had said he was coming between 1300-1700. Nope, 0900-1300. Lucky there, since I don’t like paying for extra trips. The dog was not happy to be left shut in the bedroom, but he really didn’t want a lose dog in the house.

Go figure, she has has a bark but no bite.

No knitting or spinning today, just a lot of sleeping.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    I tried leaving a comment under post titled #29 and it wouldn’t work. Got error message.
    Anyway, I like the spiral socks very much, and the yarn you have spun.
    Rather you than me re the dentist.
