I dread going to the dentist. The scraping, the picking, the cold water on my sensitive teeth. Had my 6-month check-up this morning. I survived but barely. I just took a little calendar and pen up to the bathroom. From now until August, I’m going to circle every day I floss. Evidently, I tend to overestimate how often I do it. No more. I left the dentist’s office feeling like I got hit by a truck, and all they did was clean my teeth. Time to be a little more pro-active about my health, I guess. Next step–start running (jogging a mile really slow) again. I’m aiming for May.
Kimberly’s coming over after work tonight to watch our girls (unless she forgot or changed her mind). I reminded Ava before she left for school.
Me: Kimberly’s coming tonight to watch you girls while Daddy and I go out for our anniversary.
Ava: She is?!
Me: (trying to decide if she’s excited or shocked and upset)
Me: I take it she approves.
Speaking of Ava, she lost her first tooth last night! You’ve never seen someone more excited. I really don’t think it was quite ready to come out, but she asked me to push and pull on it anyway. She kept saying it didn’t hurt, and I was about ready to throw up. Then out it came! Wow, they grow up fast.
Gabe has pics on his site of her haircut and tooth gap.
The girls have been saving up their allowances for weeks now to buy LittleKinz (smaller version of Webkinz). Ava got a white terrier, and Livi got a baby blue hippo. Rosie and Violet are their names, and we just love having them as part of the family. I like that they’re saving up for things instead of begging to spend $ at the Target Dollar Spot. Of course, it could have something to do with the fact that we never go to Target anymore.
Gabe wants to know what I have planned for our big date. Umm…eating somewhere…and then…umm… We don’t get out much. I don’t like movies much, and they’re long. I don’t have money to spend and don’t really like to shop. Gabe votes for the Apple Store. I vote for a bookstore. A perfect date to me is…hmmm…eating, reading, drinking something from Starbuck’s.
Gabe’s over at his desk, tells me something, then 45 seconds later says the exact same thing again. Don’t you hate it when you can’t remember if you said something out loud or just thought it to yourself. This happens to me all the time, so I think it’s funny when Gabe does it.
Do you ever wish you had more sophisticated tastes? (in clothing, food, decor, whatever) I think about this quite a bit, but then I’m over it.
If you can’t tell, I’m feeling kind of spacey/loopy/out of it at the moment. I usually catch up on things on Monday mornings. I spent a hellish 60 minutes in a dentist’s chair instead. I’m all thrown off.
February is busy.
I’m speaking at a MOPS group here in C-bus tomorrow morning. I can’t remember how the lady got my name, but I’m excited to go. It’s about you-know-what.
Speaking of that, my darling friend Nixie sent me a gift from Australia. It’s the Ultimate Head Massager, Wow. I love it, Nixie! THANK YOU! Apparently they’re all the rage with celebrities and whatnot. I simply cannot post the link to the site though. The name of the contraption isn’t suitable for print. Ask Nicki if you must know. 🙂
I’m talking to my agent tomorrow about the possibility of resurrecting the in-law book. Remember–you all filled out surveys, and then the publisher said “nobody buys books about in-laws.” A couple of you gals have been praying that it still works out, and here lately I’ve really been itching to write it. Sooooo…we shall see. This weekend I read through what I wrote a long time ago, and wow, I think it could work.
We went to my mom and dad’s Saturday for some family fun. Played euchre and Blokus, flew a plane, made crafts with Bethy, chatted, ate, visited my grandma. Great times!
I’d better go clean something so Kimberly thinks I’m a good homemaker. 🙂 Happy Monday!
