Burning flesh … 

Today I had an appointment for a dental cleaning with my new dentist. I normally love going to the dentist. No joke. LOVE IT. Well, after my four hour appointment this morning, that may have all changed. 

Don’t get me wrong, the staff is wonderful. They are incredibly knowledgeable and super friendly. It was what happened to me there that may have changed my mind about this whole “loving dental appointments” thingy.

I needed a deep cleaning. Um. OK. And then they recommended some elective things as well. An antibiotic and a laser gum treatment. I was a little leery at first but I ended up agreeing to all of it. I figure you can never be too safe when it comes to bacteria in your mouth. The antibiotic was topical so I figured the worst part would be the taste. And it was. However, I didn’t put much thought into the laser treatment. I should have. Oh. My. God. I REALLY REALLY SHOULD HAVE. I am sure that the benefits of the laser treatment will be worth it, but I am never EVER going to get over the trauma of this one. Not. Ever.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t smell your own burning flesh!!!

Apple butter …

This morning I started peeling apples (5lbs to be exact) because I wanted to make apple butter. I have never made it before so I was willing to put the work in to make it happen. I will be honest, I don’t think my fingers will ever be the same again. I haven’t peeled that many apples collectively in like 10 years, HA! And boy oh boy, it takes HOURS to cook this stuff. But it feels worth all the hassle because my house smells amazing! Now let’s just hope it tastes yummy too … I should know around midnight. OY!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you try something new!!!


I gave it my best effort …

I am pooped. My goal for this weekend was to get some rest and do some yoga to unkink my body. I’ve had a stiff neck and shoulder for two weeks. I’d really love to be able to look right again without wincing. I busted my tush this week just so I could enjoy doing as little as possible this weekend and get some solid sleep. Funny how I forgot to factor in three kids and a bout of insomnia. What. Ever.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you gave it your best effort!!!

Where has time gone … 

Reese had her 1st Grade pictures taken today. She simply amazes me. She is so confident in her own skin. Her beauty is unique and angelic. She truly melts my heart. I love that she feels pretty. Every precious little girl should feel this way. Reese also is becoming more and more independent every day. And I’m not sure how, but a whole lot of sass is contained in that tiny body of hers. Her personality is simply loveable. It struck me today that it feels that recently she has grown by leaps and bounds. Much faster than I remember life passing us by. And it all leaves me asking one thing.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you wonder where time has gone!!!


Close enough …

Sid FaceTimed us this evening. Often when she FaceTimes us we talk for a long time. There always comes a point in our conversation where I stop staring at her like a goofball and start to move around the house doing things while the others talk to her. I comment here and there but really I just enjoy hearing her be a part of our world. Tonight as I was getting Reese ready for bed, I heard the house erupt in laughter. It was Sid, G3 and Libs talking about something and it immediately brought a smilie to my face. No it’s not like truly having her here with us, but it sure does make me pretty darn happy.

Well, I hope you all have a day where it was close enough!!!

Just deal with it … 

I absolutely loathe when people make a big deal out of nothing. Good lord. Why? Do these people not have enough drama in their daily lives? Has worrying about the “completely fixable” become like a sport? And the perceived urgency in which the wanna-be-disaster (not) should be dealt with is just astounding. OY! I just don’t get it. And I would hate to see these people deal with a real crisis. Yikes. 

Well, I hope you all have a day where you just deal with it!!!
