I didn't want to post about it before it happened...I didn't want to jinx us.

The root canal fiasco of 2007 is done. Over. Finis.

We finally found the perfect endodonist. Perfect, in that he scheduled a two hour appointment so that he could administer the Novocaine well timed shot by well timed shot. All the while the son was so relaxed on his valium/nitrous cocktail - but never once was he even a little bit 'out of it'.

No palatte Novocaine shots. No, at this point, unnecessary root canal on the other front tooth.

Things are good.

Good but hectic.

I found a pie plate in my purse after I got into work today.

Empty. But

And I found the perfect little gift for my plant loving boss.

Which, I would totally thank bb for the link but it's from a store that doesn't ship to the U.S. and why is she teasing us like this? Nevermind that I am totally and completely ignoring the fact that they're sold out of this item.

And Em, blogless Em...with her Brookstone slide to digital machiney mention. You are killing me. THAT is what I want for Christmas.

There was no pie? I would have been bummed. ;-)

Oh thank goodness for the root canal crap being over :) I bet he is happy about it.

And too bad about the gift for boss --- what are those? lil' seeds? whatever they are, they looked cute.

Whoops! My bad ;-) I'm like that friend in high school that dared you to get drunk and spin around but never did it herself. Bad influence I am.

I am very glad your sons tooth ordeal is over. Poor kid, too much trouble for something that ought to just be there and only thought about once a day for brushing.

I think your boss' gift idea is the perfect excuse to take a trip!

Sorry you misplaced your pie.

This "em" person is blogless? Shame! Her comment just made me laugh right out loud at my desk. "Sorry you misplaced your pie." BAHAHAHAHA!!!

That's right. At my desk. That little box you can check to be notified of follow up comments? *Great* tool for procrastination while at work. =O

Very good news indeed!! I'm so glad this story had a happy ending. With all our experiences, I felt so badly for all of you.

And the pie? I'm so sorry. I ate it. I just can't resist a good cherry pie. (sorry)
