WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Personal

Miss R has adjusted to having her lip bumper/retainer in. There were a couple of days where the retainer hurt her and the lip bumper rubbed her bottom lip. But by Saturday, she was fine. I credit Colgate Peroxyl Mouth Sore Rinse for easing her pain with the sore she got from the lip bumper. She is still talking funny but her speech is getting clearer. I give it a couple of more days before she is talking like normal.

Miss B had her ortho appointment on Thursday. We got a tentative date for when she gets her braces off. That will be by January, at the latest. I am so excited (as is she). She has had braces/retainers since she was 10. So this is a big deal!!

Mr Z got his teeth pulled yesterday. There was some confusion over what teeth were needed to be pulled (which was taken care of with a phone call to the ortho). Both teeth broke at the root and the dentist had to go digging. That wouldn’t have been bad but the novocaine started to wear off when the dentist was digging around for the second root tip. I will say, Mr Z was a trooper. I would have been in tears if that happened. All he said was “Wow, that hurt.” It did take him some time to recover and he still looks like a chipmunk today.

I do have an update with Miss R’s riding instructor drama. I took her to the new barn last Thursday and gave a full explanation about what happened. The barn’s owner and the instructor were horrified but not surprised. It seems that this instructor/trainer is known for doing that. So, the new instructor is going to take her time with Miss R. The first lesson consisted for Miss R showing her what she could do. They also showed her how to fall safely off a horse (there were two adults there when this happened), how to trot correctly (she was taught wrong) and how to turn the horse correctly (again, she was taught wrong). In one lesson, she was taught more than the 2 months at the old barn. This barn also has plans for Miss R. The instructor said she has an excellent seat and would like to see her start off with Dressage or Equestrian and then go into Jumping. We’ll see. All that matters is that Miss R is happy and feels safe (which she does).

I am slowly, but surely, getting back into blogging. I am doing more daily memes and I am adding book reviews as I finish the books.

  1. Wow, it sounds like there has been a lot of mouth action at your place. Glad things all worked out. Isn’t it frustrating when you spend all that time, effort and money only to find out that things were done incorrectly. Glad you are getting more reading time in, Jolie. Enjoy all your upcoming books.
