Happy 4th of July

Well, 2nd night of wearing a splint and I didn't even wake up with clanking teeth.  The pain in my jaw hasn't disappeared but I'm still hopeful.

My daughter is having everyone over for a cookout and swim party on the 4th.  I had to go out and find a bathing suit for the occasion.  The only one I had was probably 20 years old, too big, and kinda worn out.  I also had to get a suit for Mike.  Hope it fits him.  Ron refuses to go swimming (something about back hair) so I guess he'll just watch.  The truth is he doesn't hardly have any back hair but what he has he is self conscious about.  He shaved it one time and I couldn't stand how prickly he felt.  So, I tell him to wear a t-shirt but he still won't go swimming.  I guess men can be just as vein as women.

I don't know if we will go watch the fireworks or not.  I usually get devoured by mosquitoes and there is always some fool shooting fireworks in the middle of crowds, not to mention the occasional drunk!  All that aside I guess I still enjoy seeing the display.  

Tomorrow is the recognized holiday for state employees so I'm off work.  Then I will have only 28 days remaining until retirement.  I'm starting to sound like a broken record.

have a wonderful holiday! You are braver than I....I wouldn't wear a bathing suit at a party. At some random hotel pool with my hubby being the only one who knew me, maybe. But that's it. LOL

This is my first visit to your blog, and you made me laugh out loud. I am also currently learning to sleep with an "appliance" in my mouth to prevent grinding, and I retired a couple years ago. I'll be checking in regularly for more smiles and laughs.
