An update & randoms

First I want to do the update.. My Grandmother isn't moving afterall! She told us Saturday at the Family Christmas Party that the woman who was going to buy the house ended up backing out. So as of right now, she's staying put! Yay! And now the random.. My six months waiting period to be seen at the dentist again still isn't up. I don't think it will be until February. But I'm starting to get worried about my three wisdom teeth that haven't come through yet - so I'm thinking about trying to get them to pull them.. but not until after Christmas. Also.. my mom and I are trying to figure out how we're going to send three families their Christmas gifts, now that rent took all the money we had until next Wednesday. On top of trying to figure out how we're going to get gas money to go pick up my cousins kids pictures tomorrow, along with the Christmas gifts I bought online for my mom last week - since my cousin was supposed to give the gas money and now isn't.. So we asked her sister, but they're fighting.. so the sister said she would try to get some for us to go get my moms gifts - but not for us to go get the pictures.. . Ugh. Life. And people!

WIsdom teeth can take their time coming in that is for sure. I didn't have room in my mouth for them so mine were removed when I was a teen. Christmas is a very stressful time for most people, I hope everything works itself out.

@Courtlynn I don't think that is unusual, I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it starts to hurt.

Sometimes Christmas is pretty painful. I hope those wisdom teeth don't give you too much grief.

Why do people go back on their word? That upsets me, especially when it's a family member:(

I'm glad your Grandmother isn't moving right now. If need be, you could always send the gifts after Christmas. I think things have been tight for everyone. Why isn't your cousin giving you the money to pick up the pictures? Not the sister, the one you're picking them up for.

Because she used the money she had for it and wont have money til whenever her payday is. Christmas gifts are christmas gifts! We're determined to get them out for Christmas just have to find a way somehow.

@Courtlynn Ooh, I see. Hope she can come up with the money somehow. I know, but I also understand how it can be when you're between paychecks and such.

I have one wisdom tooth left. My dentist didn't feel it would give me a problem so he left it. The other 3 had cavities that gave me problems and had to be removed. Bills always come first before you worry about anything else. Even if you have to send the gifts later, they will be appreciated by the recipients. I am so glad that my siblings and I all get along. We love and support each other even though sometimes we'd rather not be around one another. LOL. You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your relatives. LOL

Yes, bills are always first for us. But we thought we had it all planned out right. Nah, christmas gifts are christmas gifts.. we'll figure it all out hopefully. I don't believe that. As people pick their relatives all the time, especially in my family. But then some are raised different to where they're family no matter what happens between them.

@Courtlynn I finally got the picture collages that I sent away for. Now I can focus on baking for my grandson and get the package off to him on Monday.

@Courtlynn It is the same here, one of the grownup kids is always mad at one of the others. I finally told them to leave me out of it and to grow up.

This is not at all painful to get the wisdom teeth removed. I get them removed. Of course, they trobled the Doctor very much. It took nearly 10 minutes for her to remove each of them. I thought it would give me severely. But, the medicine given was very excellent and was out of the slight pain within 2 days and now I am feeling normal.Best of luck.Don't be worried.

I'm not one for pain or blood, so I am worried and will be. Also will have to be put to sleep to get them out if they get taken out
