New Dentures

I had to get new dentures 6 weeks ago.

I have been keeping up with my progress on our YouTube channel. I listed below the denture videos.

I did’t inherit the best teeth in the world. Over the years I have had so many cavities, root canals, crowns, teeth pulled. Always had tooth pain. I know part of the reason my teeth started braking was because I grit my teeth when I’m working and frustrated. My teeth just slowly crumbled. 🙁 .

I went to the dentist because I had a broke tooth. I woke up with a swollen jaw. It looked liked I had a golf ball in my mouth. I called Affordable Dentures & Implants and they got me in right away. I had an 8:30 appointment. The dentist checked my teeth and said I was a good candidate for dentures. I looked over all the packages they have available and applied for financing. Was approved and they said be back by one and we will pull your teeth and get you into dentures.

Wow…what a whirlwind. Meet Stace at home and then back to the dentist office. I had 21 teeth pulled and new dentures put in.

Then the rest was history and I’m on the road to recovery.

Here are the list of my videos: 1. New Dentures

2. Day 2 To Have New Dentures

3. 5 Days New Dentures

4. 11 Days New Dentures

5. 18 Days New Dentures

6. 1 Month With New Dentures

7. Drinking Coffee With Dentures

8. Denture Phantom Tooth Pain

9. My Daily Morning Denture Routine

Every new day is an adventure with my new dentures. When I look in a mirror and see myself I still can’t believe it’s my new teeth. Silly me 🙂 .

Thank God for new dental procedures now days.

I hope you come back and check out my progress with my new teeth.

Having The Right Tools

Having the right tools for a job on the farm makes the job easier. When I’m cleaning the goat stalls and pens it is important to me to have the correct tools.

The tools I use to clean are a leaf rake. I rake all the stalls and pens with a leaf rake. With a shovel I scoop up all the piles that I have raked up. Next up is a hay fork (that’s what I call them) is great for picking up hay or piles with hay in them.

Leak Rake is great for clean up on the farm.

These are my three go tools on the farm for cleaning up after our livestock. It makes my day to have the right tools. 🙂 When I don’t have the right tools for the task it takes me longer to do that task. That’s not good…when you have several other task to do.

Here is my YouTube Video I made on Having The Right Tools. If you haven’t checked our YouTube channel please do. Please Like and Subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

Fix-A-Heads

Today I have a special surprise for you. I have asked my mother-in-law Claudia “AKA Mom” to talk about how she saves her leftovers from larger meals. Mom’s advice will save you money. 😊 If your anything like me, I’m sure your all for saving money.

Until I met Stace and got to know his mom I had never heard of leftovers being call fix-a-heads. I thought you would enjoy Claudia’s tips about what she calls fix-a-heads.

When Mom has leftovers from the week, she will use her
Vacuum Sealer Machine on some food items. (I like to use the
FoodSaver bags for the vacuum sealer). She will also use zip lock freezer bags, or a freezer container and freeze the item. Don’t forget to write on it the date and what the item is. After it’s frozen sometimes its hard to tell what it is or how long it’s been in the freezer.

Some of Claudia’s favorite meals to save are leftover meatloaf, hamburgers, stews, mashed potatoes, and vegetables. You can use your imagination there’s no limits.

Water in Your Gas

Hi there, welcome to Tailspin farms. I have to tell you about my boo-boo. I had a couple of gas cans empty, so I put them in the back of my truck.  They rode around in the back of my truck for several days before I remembered to fill them.

Stace and I was headed out to bring the goats in. We were in the cart that we use every day. I told him we had better stop and put gas in the cart before we headed out to bring in the goats. I filled the cart with one of the gas cans I had filled the day before. Off we went…then the cart started spiting and sputtering all the way out to let the goats in and all the way back.

We made it back to the house and Stace started checking out the cart. He didn’t need to be doing this because he just had knee surgery a week ago. But he was determined. He checked the gas…and guess what, it was very cloudy. It would normally be clear, and you could see the bottom of the tank. After checking the gas can he found that the spout had been chewed on by what looks like a Squirrel, and water from all the rain had got into the can and I didn’t realize it when I was filling it.

It just so happened that all the family was coming over for Christmas. Kristen and Matt arrived first. Matt being the nice guy he is drained the gas out of the cart. He checked the other gas can to make sure there was no water in it 😊 There wasn’t, so it was good to go. Matt put the new gas in and the cart runs now.

Thank God for the men in our family know how to fix things. It seems like I always have something to fix around the farm. If I didn’t break it, it breaks on its own. 😊

So now I’m able to do all my chores using the cart.

There’s nothing better than a glass of ice tea to drink. If anyone knows me they know I love my sweet tea. I drink sweet tea year round all day long. Always have a glass of sweet tea in my hand.  Durning the day while I’m working on the farm I make several trips inside to refill my glass with sweet tea.  Also to cool off a bit before heading back out to work.

We were at our favorite restaurant La Encalidia in Nixon Texas having dinner when by mistake the waitress put lemonade in my tea.  To my surprise, I like the lemonade in my sweet tea. It’s really good and refreshing!  Now I know people have done this for years but it was something new for me.

Since I liked it so much I bought a lemonade mix to put in my sweet tea. I add a tablespoon of lemonade mix to a glass of sweet tea. Hmmmmmm! It may be all in my head but it seems to help quench my thirst.  With our hot summer days hitting 100 degrees and more.  This is the most thirst-quenching tea I have ever made!!!

This drink has to be my favorite drink for the hot summer months. Give it a try and let me know what you think of it.

Fibromyalgia Causes Soreness

My referral links are below. If you click through and take action, I may be compensated. My full disclosure is here.

Soreness from Fibromyalgia “Tender Points”

I wrote a blog post not long ago about fibromyalgia. I talked about when I was diagnosed and some of the symptoms.

Through my eight-year fibromyalgia journey, I have learned so things that help me with fibromyalgia soreness, stiffness, tender points, over all pain.

When diagnosing fibromyalgia, there are specific areas of the body that are examined called “tender points.” If a patient exhibits pain in many of these areas, it is suggested that they are suffering from fibromyalgia.

The truth about tender points is that they are actually tender “areas” rather than points because the pain within and around a muscle radiates to the surrounding tendons, or what is called “trigger points.” The interesting thing about fibromyalgia related stiffness is that it doesn’t matter whether you are standing, sitting, or lying down it is a constant reminder of pain or soreness.

In the morning when I first get up is when the stiffness is the worst.

What helps me is:

  1. Do some stretching before getting out of bed. While you’re lying flat on your back, and then while sitting on the side of your bed.
  2. Taking a hot shower in the morning can help promote circulation and relax your muscles. Just simply stand in the water and relax.
  3. Take long soaks in the tub with warm water and Epsom Salt. I like to use Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt for Pre & Post Workout. My doctor recommended I try it.  It relieves my body, and the aroma is wonderful. I was very happy with the suggestion. I hope if you try it,  it works as good for you.   
  4. Drink plenty of water throughout your day, and eat as healthy as you can. Try to avoid problem foods, such as those containing artificial colors, white flours, and artificial flavors and sweeteners.
  5. Get some exercise throughout your day, even if you are just doing lots of walking and stretching. Every little bit helps!
  6. Dress warmly for the winter months. The cold air will cause your joints and muscles to stiffen up.

Fibromyalgia can bring with it extreme and debilitating fatigue, which makes pain and other symptoms even harder to handle. Moreover, fatigue can significantly affect your ability to work, care for your family and also take care of yourself.

Have A Nice Day!
May God Bless You!
Margarita
