Friday, let's go camping!

     I went to the dentist this morning to have my bite checked.  My jaw is really inflamed with arthritis and has been for the last year and this is throwing off my bite.  So I have teeth that loosen up.  This can lead to bone loss.  Dentist has been working on restoring my very off kilter bite and I think it is in a good place now we need it to stay there.  Muscles around my jaw are very tight and I suffer a lot of pain from this.  We are having a splint made to keep the jaw open hoping this will help.

    Hub's and I and D#3 are going up above Elk River to go camping for a couple days.  It is much cooler up there and they will fish and I will pick huckleberries if I can find any and read and hike.  I guess I had better get organized. 

     It has been in the triple digits here for over a week and it looks like that will continue for a while. I just stay downstairs in the shop and only go upstairs to cook dinner, which is beastly hot.  Last night I did a large stir fry with chicken breast and all veggies from garden, it must have been good because both kids came home and ate it and it is gone.

     I have a few errands to run this morning and I need to post new totals for July and pay some bills today.  D#3 and I watched an episode on hoarders last night and I went into the shop with her and said does this look like a hoarders episode?  We were laughing but it is a real mess right now.  I am going to go in and see if I can organize it a little.  I think it is the crates of 80 pair of football pants that I am waiting new patches from the embroider that are causing most of the crunch in the shop, plus piles every where.  I have racks for hanging so I am going to try and hang things up.

     I want the house clean and the laundry done before I go so I don't come home Sunday morning to a messy house.  I hate that.  All the camping gear and a messy house, yuck!

I had better get busy!

Have a great and productive day!
