Grateful for life…

Monday morning, February 17, 2020, I had a coffee date with Death. I’m glad I got to crawl away.   I was driving back from a great weekend trip to Denver, still in awe of Garden of the Gods, and excited to book my next stay in the Mile High City. Shortly after I crossedContinue reading “Grateful for life…”

Dental work and self love

Yesterday I braved my way to my dentist’s office; stomach in knots, worried about the needles, and most importantly, how hideous I’d look afterward. To my surprise, she got the anesthesia in without a hitch! Apparently there are two types used during the procedure; one has epinephrine (a stimulant), the other doesn’t. So she insertsContinue reading “Dental work and self love”
