I can drink cold things again

I really like our new dentist. She has the most gentle touch of any dentist I've ever been to, and she's very careful about monitoring the pain level. Today she filled the cavity in a front tooth that's been very sensitive to cold recently and this evening I have no discomfort whatsoever. Yay for good dentists!

A group from Palabra de Vida (Word of Life) is coming next month and will be doing several programs in one of the public schools. Through a connection with my language tutor, the hubby and our co-worker met with the school director today who gave permission for two programs, during both the morning and afternoon sessions. (I think I've already explained that a facility shortage has schools running two or even three sessions per day, haven't I?) This particular school also has an evening session with a different director so the hubby and our co-worker are over there now to see if they can also do an evening program.

My energy level was pretty low today. Thankfully these days are few and far between now, but when I do have one, not a whole lot gets done.

I'm absolutely starving and smelling the meatloaf and oven fries is killing me while I wait for hubby to get back. Do you think he'd mind if I snitched a bite?

Speaking of food, the group from Palabra de Vida is thirty strong so my co-worker has already cooked a big pot of locro and frozen it. Along with bread and dessert, that should feed the group well.

I was reading an article about high altitude wind machines and am trying, in my technologically challenged way, to figure out how that would work. The skies are already over-crowded, especially in air space above big cities. Which is where they'd need the most energy produced by the high altitude wind machines. Would there be pockets of "no fly" zones where the machines were protected from planes that had to maneuver around? That would make the skies even more over-crowded. Of course at the rate energy costs are rising and airlines are going bust, no one will be able to afford to fly anyway.

And that's all I have the energy to discuss tonight. Right about now I could use some of the power one of those machines would produce.

Glad your tooth is feeling better - tooth discomfort is no fun!

glad your toothy's better...i hate it when anything in my mouth hurts.
that locro sounds really hearty and warm, yummmmmm!
hope you get an energy surge...it's no fun when your body takes a nose dive.
i made some really good mango smoothies this morning, your title made me think about it

sounds like hubby will be busy with those sessions :)

my hubby got home 2day from having spent the last 10 days in China (Souzhou, Shanghai and Beijing)...he's exhausted...was up 26 hours straight on his way back home. We'll get to hear and see more about the trip tomorrow...once he ate a good-ole american pizza with a side salad he crashed.
maybe he'll have some pics i can share
hope you feel better 2morrow, JubiSista!

I avoided the dentist for years but this last January I went to a new dentist. She uses a combination of anesthetics and nitrous oxyde. I looove nitrous oxyde! I wish I could use it in the evenings when I'm all stressed and exhausted. (I could potentially have addictive tendencies, you all know what happens when I see potato chips!)

Glad you can enjoy a nice clod beverage again, there is nothing better than an ice cold drink on a really hot day!
