Thanks to all of you that have reached out to me to help in any way you can.
Thanks to those of you that sympathize with me regarding my tooth! Ugggh! So I go to an oral surgeon yesterday and he tells me I need a root canal, and with that comes a crown. So altogether this would cost me close to $2500, give or take a few bucks insurance would kick in. It would include four painful trips to surgeons and dentists altogether. It would include time out for work, and mileage on my car. I have to consider all that. So instead, I considered having the tooth removed, of which I am doing today. Its going to be horrible, for me. I have major anxiety when having anything done to my teeth. Now getting them cleaned, on the other hand, is a joy. LOVE the scraping. Sorry. TMI?
So wish me well. The cost of gas has gone up, to over $500 a pop - so Novacaine, and narcotics is all I can do. I wish I had earbuds to stop the sound of drilling. I am going to be a wreck.
The wind was brutal yesterday, last evening, this morning, and will be continuing to be today. I layed there this morning thinking how a lot of tarps would be missing. So I packed the jeep with extra shelters, extra tarps, extra straw, and the only heavy thing I have to set on to keep the wind from blowing, one big rock.

I was surprised to find everything pretty much in order. I do however need the following:
Heavy brick or pavers, light enough for me to carry.
Batteries, both AA and AAA. The headlamps I use wear out quickly.
Dark colored tarps - either black, brown or camoflauge.
Otherwise, all the kitties were out, and hopefully taking shelter against this wind. The temp is 20, so with windchills, I am sure it close to zero at times.
Have a nice day (and wish me luck). I think losing a tooth, or any part of your body, is traumatic. I am one big baby. :(
