It’s not what you think!
It’s a night guard for my teeth, because apparently I grind my teeth in my sleep. I don’t remember grinding, but I do wake up with a sore mouth. Also, by looking at my dental x-rays, it was determined that the right side of my mouth is “filed down.”
I went to the dentist first thing this morning (8:30 is pretty early for me) to pick up the night guard and have the final “fitting.” It is a semi-clear plastic thing that is installed over my top teeth. Yes, I am afraid it will come loose while sleeping. Thanks for asking.
I figured the best way to get used to this thing is to wear it during the day, while I am upright and less likely to choke on it. Ugh. I’m not looking forward to that.
In other news, I had a very busy week last week, and as you may (or may not) have noticed, I didn’t post any blogs. I overbooked myself. Wednesday night attended a writing class. It’s all about how to build characters. This is very difficult for me, as I don’t invent characters when I write, but normally embellish people, places, and things that exist, and twist them so they are not recognizable. I’m sure I will be using the same methods, for now.
Thursday night of course, is choir practice. I’m not lip syncing as much as I was in the early days, but I still have a way to go to let my voice out. Working on that also.
Friday I had a nice visit with my mother-in-law. Saturday was an all-day “training”. I’ll say no more on that. 😉
Sunday, I went to church and sang in the choir, came home and walked Bailey, and then took a 5-hour “nap.” I couldn’t “people” anymore.
This week’s schedule is busy, but not crazy.
I apparently have time to blog.
Have a good day everyone!
