Cap that tooth

I returned to my dentist in that far away land where I once lived.  He took x-rays, compared them to past x-rays, and said "do not pull it.  We'll just put a permanent cap on it and it'll be fine"  My next appointment is in 2 weeks.

Which made me wonder "why did the other dentist insist I have either a root canal or an implant?"  A lady I know said a similar thing happened to her.  And she was also hesitant to go through with it.  In her case the dentist encouraged her to have gum surgery.  She did go to the recommended specialist but then decided it was not for her.  Suspicious how those dentist and those periodontists work so closely.  They are so quick to make the appointment for you, not giving you a choice.  Hmmmmmmmmm.

So I saved $3,200 which was the estimated cost for the extraction and implant.

I guess you can call that a savings.

Our house is still for sale.  I am so tired of it.  After my dental appointment I went by the empty house.  What a strange place.  Ended up not bring out dog back with me.  Ironman said he would bring doggy when he returned the next day.

I found these cute individual deep dish pizza pans at Williams and Sonoma.  So today I was reading the blog "My Baking Addiction" and there was a recipe for a super simple pizza dough.  I've never had much success with the old yeast/warm water/sugar thing.  The recipe promises it's fail proof.   She copied it from the cookbook Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.  I'm going to try it.  I'll take photos.  I'll post the results.

I cleaned out closets today.  The April challenge is to get rid of 30 items in 30 days.  I think I accomplished that in one afternoon!  Wow.  Did I ever purge my closet and bedroom dresser.  It was too embarrassing to take photos.  But things are tidy and sorted now.

I.T. Girl cleaned out her closet, too.  Now if I can just get Dancer Girl to tackle the job.
