Snow Day! (And the Revenge of the Dentist)

White Christmas (Anniversary Edition)Yes, it’s April 1. And yes, it’s a raging blizzard outside. And you know what? I love it. Especially the gift of a snow day this late in the year. Sure, TRC will have to make up the day later on in the year, but such is life. At least I won’t have to make it up. 🙂

And on more somber news, Denisa’s appointment with destiny the dentist came and went. Verdict? $3600 of tooth repair that needs to be done this year. Insurance could cover $1000 of that, but you don’t need to be a math major to figure out that’s $2600 we’d need to find somewhere to get her teeth into shape. She needs a bridge replaced and a new crown. I swear–sometimes the woman seems like she’s got her heart set on becoming royalty. Bridges? Crowns? Of course, give her a few more years, and her mouth will be worth a king’s ransom. 🙂

So . . . Slovakia is back in the cards. She’s figuring out how much the work would cost in Slovakia, and when we could go. Good thing I was looking at our finances for the start of the month and we look like we can afford it. Book deals help with things like that, as does bread baking. Although perhaps we won’t be building staircases into my garage attic this year, after all.

Such is life.

Anyway, suckers. Enjoy work while you’re there and I’m not. And Happy April Fools! I hear Gmail has a new motion interface. Check it out!

    That dentist seems awfully expensive. I just had bridge and crown work done here. I think the same work would be more in the neighborhood of $2600 before insurance in SLC. I know there are lots of dentists here so perhaps the competition drives the cost down.

    I think some of it is definitely due to smaller number of dentists to choose from here in Maine. It’s also two separate incidents: one new crown (which is $950), and then the replaced bridge (which is $2600). But it is what it is. We like our dentist–we just don’t like how much work Denisa’s mouth has to have done on it. 🙂
