Given I was freaking out about potentially having to get my very first root canal when the heat sensitivity first showed up, this is a _great_ outcome.
T.'s home from his half day and, so far, declining any proposed activities.
ETA: A. came home in a terrible mood because the bus mate she typically cons into giving her small items decided to give a small item to a different person on the bus today. Attempts to find the item online to buy her one have thus far failed (it looks like plastic clear aquarium tubing in a loop big enough to go over one's head -- sort of like one of those glow in the dark things, only instead of glow in the dark, it had rainbow sparkly beads or sand or something in it. I'm betting it is sold as a sensory chewy necklace but I haven't found it yet).
She eventually cheered up after she told me about some spin art thing she wanted. We couldn't find the exact one they used at school, but something acceptable from Alex Toys should be arriving in a couple days. Then when the sitter came by, A. wanted to talk to the sitter so much that she opted to go with T. and the sitter.
So while I did not get to walk with my walking partner (see, dentist, reluctant T.), I _did_ get to go for a walk by myself earlier today around the block and I went down to Great Hill after the kids left.
Edited again, one more time: R. and I went to Red Raven, where they changed the mussels frites enough to convince me to try ordering other things. They have a super yummy tomato soup which is listed on the menu as dairy free. R. got the fried bacon thing (chiccarones? sp?) with frijoles and the waldorf salad. I got the vietnamese beef lettuce wraps. Four small plates, two drinks (he got a flight of beer and I had the manhatten (sic). Very, very enjoyable.
As a result of discussion over drinks, we then looked around for some concert tickets. I have decided that Fenway Park is NOT an acceptable music venue, but Xfinity Center is, so we won't be seeing Zac Brown Band but we will be going to Brad Paisley. He picked up a ticket to something at Brighton Music Hall that I will skip because it is at 10 p.m. on a Tuesday night. I haven't been to a big venue music event in ... I don't actually recall for sure any more. Probably something at Bumbershoot in the early 2000s. I'll have to remember to look at the BLO schedule later in the summer when the 2015-6 season is up.
