It's Tuesday and hubby did not have that oral surgery yesterday! Oh it's not because he didn't go to his appointment....it's because after we got there the oral surgeon refused to do the surgery. He said it didn't really need to be done as the dead bone would flake off and there would be new gum tissue under it. I'm thinking it had more to do with the fact that it was 're-work' so to speak and we weren't paying for it! Hope it's true and it all works for the best and hubby doesn't have to go through it at some future date and time.

We did take Amber home and I'm definitely glad that I wasn't driving being as I 'white-knuckled' the entire 66 mile round trip. The roads are treacherous to say the least. They are sanding them and that does help with some traction, but it does nothing to melt the 3 inch ice-cover on most roads. Of course, with the temp only being in the single digits, the salt they use on the roads wouldn't work anyway.

Hubby got to sleep in a little this morning. He got called for jury duty and had to report this morning at the county courthouse by 8:30 AM. This is the first time he has ever been called for jury duty and he isn't really happy about it, but since the big meeting at his work on Friday informing him of his lay-off beginning this past Monday and he isn't missing any time from work it isn't that big of a deal. Well, except for the fact that the courthouse is 20 some miles away and unemployment checks already have to be stretched just to meet monthly bills and we thought that at least we would be able to save on gas for the vehicles. Well, we are saving some on gas for the vehicles......he is driving my car because his truck isn't working right...AGAIN! But I don't mind....really! It's not like I'm about to get in and drive it anywhere with these road conditions. If it weren't for hubby, I would be a hermit all winter long....as long as there is snow and ice build-up on the roads. Hmmmm.....I wonder if he needs a chauffeur license?

(((Martie))) I'm hoping for a warm up soon. If ya'll warm up we usually do too. I'm sorry about all that snow and ice mess. I would be a hermit if I lived up there. But, I have decided as much as I like warm weather if I move out of NC, it will be further south.

I'm glad about Hubby's tooth and hopefully the dentist is being fair about this.

Ya'll stay warm! Warm hugs!

Kind of funny that the dentist decided not to do the surgery after being told that ya'll weren't paying for it. Nothing better go wrong with it, I'll have to come up and teach that guy a lesson. Making dad suffer, who does he think he is. If we get the snow they are expecting we won't be going anywhere! 3-5 inches here at home. North of here 5-9. Hopefully that stays north. Love ya.

I can't believe that he didn't have the surgery after all of that!

We have been seeing images of your roads on the news. So scary. I wouldn't mind seeing snow here, but I think that is taking it a bit too far!

I'm sorry about his job. That sucks. I can't believe how easily they can lay people off over there It is not fair. Too bad if you had one income and 5 kids to support. Blah. Keep your chins up. Something will work out. It always does :)

So glad to hear that he didn't have to undergo another surgery. That just sounded so painful. I'm so glad we don't have any snow!

Lucky him getting out of the oral surgery...what a relief that must've been!

I didn't realize Amber lived that far away from you.

Thank goodness on the surgery, I had to do that a few years back and let me tell ya, I was MISERABLE! Snow? I'll trade you, as cold as it's been here the past few months I would love to see some snow! I'm trying to talk the hubby into coming up there in March! Although I can't complain too badly about the weather here yesterday it was in the mid sixties!

Martie we need to win the lotto so we can have a chauffeur take us where we want to go in bad weather. I am not so nervous when someone else is driving. I don't like it when I am driving. I would love to be a hermit in the winter. Curled up on the couch with my blanket and pillow. Oh yeah, that is the life!

Rebecca said...

Wow, well - fortunately no surgery! :) I can't believe you still have snow on the ground!!! We got like, I dont know - 3 inches and it's all gone, gone, gone. Some New England winter. :(

I sent you an email with my new blog address but it came back as undeliverable.

Poor hubby! I hope that doc is right and not just saying that!!
