Sometimes I have no idea what to use for a blog post title, and this is one of those times. So there you have it... "no gracias". Having gone over the border 4 times now, making our way through the pushy street vendors to get to and from the dentist office... these have become the only words we need to speak. I don't like to be rude, and given what I have felt like saying sometimes... the words "no gracias" are very kind.
Today was to be my final appointment, when I get my permanent crowns. But I was a bad girl and didnt take my antibiotic after my root canal, so I got an infection. I was nervous about taking this unknown mexican medication, and figured I didnt need it, but I was wrong. So now I am taking it. Tomorrow I will go, and hopefully all will be fine.
I wasn't the only one to see the dentist. Jeff had a split tooth, and after examination, the dentist determined that it could not be saved... it had to be extracted. Roberta knew that she needed a crown, but when told that she first needed a root canal, she backed out. I had never had a root canal before, but having finally come up with the nerve to see a dentist over the border, I was determined to get the work done, and if that meant a root canal before I could get the crown on that tooth... I would do it. So I did it, and it really wasn't that bad.
Friday February 3
For whatever reason... distractions to do other things I suppose... I didn't finish this post, so I will try aain. I still have pain in my gum and jaw so I dread going to the dentist and having him pushing on it... but we are going. I want to get it done, so we can move on from here.
The other day we hiked back in this area where we are, climbed up and over a couple hills and came upon a Pet Cemetery. Its actually straight down the road from where we are parked, but we found it the back way.
I'm sure it started by one person burying their pet who died while they were here, but I had to wonder... people don't stay here a long time... so all these pets just happened to die while their owners were camped here?
I don't have a lot more to say! We have enjoyed our stay here. It's been fun sharing a site with friends, and we will most likely relocate together. However, they have to be back in Oregon in March, so we will part ways soon.
The next blog post will most likely be from our new location.... WHEREVER that may be.
