As much as I didn't want to go into any further debt, the teeth situation is getting a pass.  2 cracked teeth, another missing a cap, 2 fillings needed.  Those are the problem teeth and then beyond that are my front teeth which are cracked and my smile is hardly anything worth looking at.  The problem stuff will be dealt with first, which will add nothing to my smile, just make it so I won't be experiencing painful teeth problems further down the line. 

The dentist said my bite comes straight down over the bottom row of teeth, creating pressure on the teeth, which is what is causing the problems.  He will put crowns on my front 4 upper teeth and claims that he will fix the pressure problem with it.  I'm not sure about that, I don't have any kind of over bite at all and it might feel strange to have that going on in there, but something needs to be done.

Meanwhile, I get to go back to Cheneire much later on today.  That's sarcasm.  I don't want to go, but that's the way the chips fall.  It is, however, 2 short runs in a row, I fully expect a longer run after this one.   I will be getting out of there late, so I'm hopeful they won't mind me parking in their parking lot again. It's outside of the secured portion of the facility and they didn't care last time. 

The whole scenario around here has changed with both James and Taylor working. James is working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day.  I'm not really sure that's any better than what I'm doing.  In fact, I'm sure it's not.  No free time to speak of.  Work all day, come home, eat, deal with the kids, go to bed.  I'm not sure how a company expects it's workers to never get any time off..  That's just a recipe for burnout.  Sure, they need the money, but that is a bit much IMO.  Anyway, Rene is watching the boys during the daytime and making some moolah while she's at it.  I at least get a mandatory 34 hour reset if nothing else, which guarantees at least one full day off, usually 2. 

Well, I think I'ma put buying a vehicle off for a bit longer now.  I need to see what the payments are going to be on the dental loan before I get into $300 plus per month for a vehicle plus having to put full coverage insurance on it, something I don't have at the moment.  Driving an old car, it's not worth putting full coverage on it, especially considering I have a backup vehicle.  It's old too, but it runs fine.  Just doesn't have AC and I think I"m going to get that fixed soon. 

I have not, however, put off the idea of investing.  I have that money my mom gave me and I expect to be doing something about that soon enough. I'm just still undecided how to go about it. 

Well, I think I"m going to go back to sleep for a while. They woke me up early with vehicles firing up to go off to work. I have a late night coming up and I don't want to be falling asleep trying to unload the truck.

Interesting day. Up early - 4:00, jolted out of deep sleep by the ridiculous phone alarm - annoying as all get out but that's the inten...
