Wife is working from home so I'm being her "gopher" and doing a couple small loads on laundry. I have therapy after lunch and may hit the gym. I need to diminish the Dad bod.

I went to the dentist and found out that the wisdom tooth is giving me pain from the past couple of days, he advised to remove it but I refused, kinda afraid to be honest.

I understand. I held out for a long time myself but eventually my dentist told me that my other teeth were getting pushed out of line and I'd eventually need to get root canals. Better to get it over and be put under rather than deal with ongoing procedures that involve needles.

I don't remember the procedure at all. They put me under and took out all four at once. All I remember is feeling a flush of heat and the lights going out to a psychadelic laser show. I wouldn't be surprised if the oral surgeon was playing Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon."

Coming out from being under was tough because when you come to you're still in la la land and off balance so you need someone else to drive - and keep a straight face while you ramble on on the ride home.

Honestly, the recovery wasn't easy but it also wasn't that long. I don't know you and you don't know me so I won't into details, but suffice it to say you will be in moderate pain for at least a day once the drugs wear off. I recommend taking several days off and staying in a quiet, dark place. I'd also recommend foregoing the highly addictive pain pills they prescribe though.

You also won't be able to eat solids for a few days. You won't want to. Just drink lots of fluids, like warm water or chicken stock.

I just wrote a detailed letter to the school district for the area where Justin is currently living. By law, they are responsible for providing busing for him and after they'd dropped the ball in the fall they've since gone dark. The program that is overseeing Justin's living accommodations and mobile therapy asked me to light a fire under them, so I went about writing a letter that does so without making me sound like an ass.

Meanwhile, I'm doing laundry and fixing little things around the house - like shimming the hinges on doors that I've hung poorly so that they close now.

Later on, I'm having my mom come over to be here with Joe while I go to the library. I signed up for the local writer's group and there's a meeting tonight. I'm a little nervous about it, but I've got a lot of material to show for critique on my laptop. Writing is one of several forms of self therapy that I employ. I'm hoping I can make some money with the skills I've developed.

So Saturday, my Dad and I changed the struts on the kid krawler. We would be on the interstate, drive over a dip, and feel like we were riding a bucking horse. Now it's smooth as the day it rolled off the lot. My fat, out of shape self paid for it for the last few days, though. Time to check out the planet fitness that moved in down the road last fall.

Good job! Our Oddity has been creaking and scraping for years but I havenít want to put money into it. The other day I was sitting in it in a parking lot and a young mommy banged it with her car door while she was getting her kid out of the car seat. She didnít give a rats ass and neither did I, itís been paid off for forever.

Still, an apology would have been nice but she was one of those self involved under 30 moms. SMH.

Lately though, the old Honda has been squealing like a banshee in the cold and itís only getting worse. I figure the belt is original so itís lasted 10 years. My days of tinkering on cars are over though. Iíll pay somebody else to do it. Hopefully the tensioner isnít shot.

So far not a damn thing. The cat is away. I need to hit the grocery store, pick up my mom and go visit my displaced kid.
