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 :)

I am getting 3 fillings on Friday and 4 next Friday...I am scared. I was supposed to go last week, but ended up having to reschedule. So, I feel ya on the teeth thing!

I get post-vacation blues too...it usually lasts about a week for me.

Oh gawd, that was me all last summer--getting my teeth filled and protective coverings on them because I grind the enamel right off!! I do not envy you, I am so sorry.

And his own law practice?!?! That is awesome/scary/exciting! What kind of law is he planning on doing?
