Daughter #1 had her wisdom teeth out this morning. Everything went well – it is amazing how differently the sedative and now the Vicodin affected each of the girls. D#1 is in much more of a stupor – although it is looking like she will be less swollen. She is all set up on our sofa – pillow, blanket, remote control …. if her mouth weren’t throbbing, she’d be enjoying herself.
It is very hot and muggy here today – a good day to be stuck inside with the air conditioner going. Just a few years ago, I would tough these days out – shooing the kids outside.
I used to be a friend to the earth.
Those days are over. I still recycle and turn lights out. I use a mulching mower – and try very hard not to use paper plates. I have a compost pile. I give bread crumbs to the birds.
But the air conditioner? it saves my sanity, our mother/daughter relationships, my marriage ….
