Conversation #51: What a site I must have been

To the man in the car next to me anyway, as I tried to sing Christmas carols while drooling on myself.  I continued on my journey today in getting my teeth fixed (longtime readers may remember that I found out I had some issues about a year ago).  I still haven’t gotten any crowns, but I finally got all of the fillings taken care of cause by wonderful habit of clenching my teeth while sleeping.  I have worn off so much enamel.  I really am embarrassed!  But hey, since I have no pride, I will share that I had to get 5 fillings today.  Luckily I’m done, but my face hurts.  My mouth was propped open for an hour and a half, and it is till numb!  Thankfully it is wearing off now.

Anyway, so much has happened since I last wrote!  My husband has found an office space and is preparing to officially open his own practice.  I’m so excited for him, and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for him and us. 

We also ended up getting to go to our trip to the Dominican Republic, and it was AH-MAZING!!!!!!!  Seriously, I have had such bad post-vacation depression.  Normally I’m sad for a couple of days, but we have been back for two weeks and I’m still missing it.  It was such a wonderful, relaxing trip, and we got to see some great friends that live there.  I seriously think everyone should go.  Really, the trip deserves its own post, but I’ll do that in a day or two.

After the trip, my sister and brother-in-law came to visit, and that definitely helped ease the vacation blues.  However, I was just sad again after they left.  At least Thanksgiving was just around the corner!

It was a great Thanksgiving, but like everyone, I know I ate too much.  We watched lots of football and even got to cheer our alma mater onto to victory – they had to the conference championship this weekend!

That is pretty much all that is going on these days.  My job has been a challenge for me lately, but that is probably a post for another day as well.  Maybe some of y’all can give me some advice.  Hope everyone is doing well.  I have still been reading blogs on my phone, but I need to get better at commenting again.  I want to, but I always feel like there is something else I should be doing.  Like right now for instance, I should be painting on this hutch that is sitting in the middle of my kitchen, but it can wait another day.  Well, maybe it could just wait until now!  Talk to you lovely bloggy friends soon :)

Conversation #50: I can’t even think of a title, I’m that lazy

I hit my two-year blogging mark back in September, and I didn’t even really think about it.  This second year has been pretty crazy and I haven’t really paid as much attention to ye ‘ol blog.  My life has been a crazy mess of emotions lately.  I have plenty to blog about, but I didn’t want this to be a dumping ground so I took to private journaling on my computer.  It was therapeutic.  I have had some pretty low “lows” lately, but I have had some great highs as well.  One I do want to share is that my hubby passed the bar!!!!

I’m sure my one reader that is left doesn’t even care about that, but I’m so proud of him.  It is and has been very evident to me for a while that this law is what God is calling him to do.  I love him and respect him for being diligent and following God’s plan.

Anyway, I wish I could write more, but I need to hit the hay.  I hope to get back to regularly blogging, but this slothfulness that has come over me lately must leave.  Hope all is well with y’all!

Conversation #49: VOTE

I don’t think I need to remind you that I firmly believe in voting and exercising that right, but just in case:

vote

I hope it is a little nicer weather where you are on this fine election day, but if not, don’t let that stop you!  Luckily, I voted early so all I have to do is anxiously await the results.  Happy Election Day!!!
