But life has been...eventful. First, that low grade, nagging toothache decided to morph into full blown dental misery--the kind that keeps you up at night, cursing your fate. Then there was trying to get into the dentist. Then there was waiting for payday to have money to get into the dentist.
Then there was extraction, which ended up costing about $260 bucks, including exam, x-ray, procedure, and perscriptions. (there went most of my non-bill paying cash for August!)
After that there were several days of that rather unpleasant fogginess that accompanies hyrdocodone APAP. But I must say that I feel much better, all over after getting the tooth removed. There was a lot of infection so my favorite snack right now is 300 mg clyndomycin capsules, and I've discovered that loosing that tooth put me over the edge as far as carrot sticks go, but I feel better everywhere so it's OK.
But then, on Tuesday morning, there was the flood. Yep, we got a little bit of rain. In fact, we got twice the average August monthly total--in three hours. Then it rained twice more on Tuesday. During the three hours of deluge, we got 7 1/2 inches here in New Albania, plus what ever else we got.
That led to local and flash flooding throughout the Louisville Metro. At least one hospital had to suspend emergency services because the waters had risen into the ER, Many roads--main thoroughfares, were closed. The flash flooding came quickly enough that they were unable to evacuate the animal shelter completely, and some animals drowned in their cages. Cars were washed away, people had to be rescued, including on the campus of the university when their buildings were cut off. Blackiston Mill Rd was washed out. And it's a hard top route, not some backwoods psuedopath.
Clean up proceeds apace.
Anyway, her I am today!
