Well, my visit to the dentist went well. I had some pain once the numbness wore off but not too bad. Also, the tooth looks great. I was expecting an ugly amalgam (silver) filling but he did a composite filling to make it look like there was no filling at all. I wonder how my insurance will react to that. When I looked at my policy, they cover composite fillings only for anterior teeth and this was my far back tooth. He didn't ask and I didn't mention it because I've never had a dentist do a composite filling on a back tooth before. I trust this dentist knew what he was doing, since I'm sure he deals with my insurance company the most. I do work for the town's largest employer. I will worry about that when the bill comes.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions about Montreal. While this will be a one day trip, I plan to come up by myself and at least spend the weekend at another time. I've been waiting for winter to be over before I did too much traveling.
I've gotten better about driving. Since my friend died in an auto accident, I've had several panic attacks while driving, but that has slowly gotten better. When I drove to Massachusetts and Connecticut for work, I did just fine, so I'm hoping that's one side effect of that awful tragedy that is getting better. I think it also helps that I am on an anti-anxiety medication.
Friday night, I have a special dinner to attend. It is one in which I am required to wear a suit and I can't decide which one I should wear: the gray one or the blue one. I'm leaning more towards the gray, but I also like the blue. Which would you pick?
