top of the list of things i REALLY DON’T LIKE

1. the dentist.

I had to go to the dentist today. Ugh. Just walking in that place makes my head hurt, mostly because that’s when I start clenching my teeth.

It’s mostly the sounds that get to me. When I’m working, I don’t like to be in the same room as the dental machine – I’ll pull teeth, but that tartar scraper thing gives me the heebie-jeebies.

The hygienist remarked several times about the death grip I had on the sides of the chair. I personally think the tears silently running down my cheeks should have been her first clue that I was not enjoying my cleaning.

Anyway, it was a fab way to start off the week 🙂

Thankfully I have only a small cavity – actually one that I’ve had filled before but not correctly.

So I get to go back in 2 weeks.

The scheduler apologized for not being able to fit me in this week.


But friends, it could be soooo much worse.

Have I ever told y’all about the summer before we moved to England?

You have to have medical and dental clearances for the military to let you move overseas.

My lovely dentist refused to sign my clearance…until I had about 52 cavities filled, 2 root canals, and had signed over our life savings to her retirement account.

It was not a fun summer for my poor teeth.

But I learned my lesson – no more mountain dew, coke, or sweet tea (except on very special occasions). That stuff really will rot your teeth out!

Especially if you drink 64 ounces of it daily.

  1. No, no, no! You can still drink all that good stuff. My dentist told me to learn to guzzle. Ha! He said if you nurse it, that’s bad, but if you down it, it’s not so bad. 🙂 I have only had 2 cavities. You should try the guzzling method. 😉

  2. Just checking on some blogs that I haven’t read in awhile. I hope you are all doing well.
