It's been such a long week. This week:
- Monday I went to the eye doctor and then all over town looking for the cheapest place to find my contacts (Costco - $10 cheaper per box than HellMart). Damn this being on a budget.
- Tuesday I visited the orthodontist - yes, I'm nearly 40, well I will be in 367 days - and I'm getting braces. The Invisalign ones, but still braces. Growing up my dentist always said I didn't need them. I thought that was a load of crap, but I was just a kid. Then I go to the dentist for the first time as a self paying adult and what does he say? "Why did you never have braces?" Assholes. Anyway, our insurance now covers adult orthodontia so I'm taking the plunge. I'm sooooo looking forward to it..
- Thursday morning I went to the dentist - I so hate going to the dentist and have so little confidence that I'll find one I like that I haven't been since we moved back to Alabama. Two years ago. I know, gross. But no cavities for me so whooo hoo!
- Thursday afternoon I went to dermatologist, well really cosmetic surgeon/ENT, but I'd seen him before, so I went back. What a waste of letters that last sentence was. The point is I have a cyst on my back which has gotten bigger - and sore- and now I'm gonna have to have it removed. At the hospital. He wanted to do it today, but since we don't know if I'm pregnant or not we'll have to wait a few weeks. Which means it will get worse again before it gets better. Whine, whine, whine. And pain? When he started doing whatever he was doing to me it hurt like hell. Worse than amnio. Worse than an epidural. Worse than the whole damn c-section. But I feel better today. Let's hope I'm pregnant and get the chance to suffer with this thing for nine more months!
And my pay it forward ladies were Kellie, RaeJane and Serena. I'm still trying to figure out what your little package will be, but I hope to have it in the mail sometime next week. Yes, I am procrastination personified. Sue me, ok? And I got a super nice pay it forward package from AFF today. You know I just love this bloggy community I've found here! You all are so great and this kind of thing is so much fun. Thanks for reading my blog and through that sharing a bit of my life with me. Love you all!!!! ~big hugs~
