That was until yesterday.
With that, she took her glasses, got into her over sized, overpriced SUV and drove away.

I have had an eventful few days. As most of you know, I lost my lower dentures. I did go on vacation without them. While everyone sat on the deck at ate, I hid in the room. Luckily we grilled at the resort and didn't eat at restaurants. It was fine. We had a great time. I am working on the post to show you all the pictures.
When we got home, I had an appointment with another dentist for a consultation. I had found them on the web because they had that capability to provide dentures in a day. While on the phone with them, I happen to mention that I might be interested in having implants put in so that the dentures snap in instead of using adhesive.
I went on Thursday, they took a CT Scan, and then talked to me about the implants. To the tune of $20,000!!!! They did say that $6000 was knocked off the price because they wouldn't have to do any extractions. That was the only thing they talked about. Not getting me some temporary lowers or anything. As interesting as the procedure sounds, I am not in any kind of position to spend $20,000. I was depressed.
I have a wedding to go to today and the last thing I wanted to do was go without my lower dentures. It's one thing to be with your family, no makeup, sort of camping, but it's a completely different thing to be dressed up at a function. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
I went back online. There has got to be an inexpensive, quick alternative. There it was, like a beacon! A company that specializes in cheap, fast dentures. They are located all around the country and have a price list on their website. A set of lower "economy" dentures are $255!!!!!
Here's the problem, to get same day service, you have to be at the office to register when they open at 7:45am. The closest office to me was about an hour away close to the Illinois/Wisconsin border and they don't take appointments. It's first come first serve.
So, yesterday, I packed cereal and lunch for the girls, and headed out at 6:30am. We arrived at 7:40. They took me right away, did some impressions, made the mold and then told me to come back at 11:45am. The nurse said that I picked the right day because they are usually lined up on the sidewalk to get in.
The girls and I walked around Target for a while, bought a pocket game of "Pass The Pig", sat in the trunk of the car eating our sandwiches and playing the game. 11:30 came and we decided to go in a little early. I walked in, they told me they were ready, I went in the room, they fit perfectly!!! We were home by 1:00pm and they only cost $255!!!!!
I am so happy that I don't have to eat soft food anymore!! I am sitting here right now eating 2 Eggo waffles, burnt with just butter (just how I like them) and coffee! Finally, something went my way!!!!!

I am so sorry! I flaked and didn't schedule anything for today. My mother graciously let me use her laptop to post this, but I can't get a picture up. So here's a link to a nice picture of him. Again, I am sorry and I will accept my well deserved flogging.
