Saint Jack will take mom to the dentist at 3:30. The dentist, who is leaving on vacation late this afternoon for a week, held a block of time open today for just such an emergency (talk about timing). He’ll call me in the middle of the exam with treatment options.. I will call mom and let her know about the appointment. The community will remind her throughout the day. Aside from the need to be home due to the garage door replacement, I have irrigation work to do. No guilt.
