WOW

I am so productive this week! To start off I went to the Department of Licensing and no worries people, I didn't have to take the test! It's amazing what a wink, a smile and a few flattering words can get ya! Or maybe I got the nicest lady on the planet who didn't even look at my proof of residency. She saw I had a WA address on my info sheet and a rambunctious little boy and put me on through. Phew! I was so excited. Phil brought me home some poinsettias for "passing" my drivers test. [for those of you in my same situation, I think the thirty-day thing only applies if you get caught (pulled-over, in an accident, etc.) that you get penalized for not having your license updated in a timely manner. Probably best, however, to learn from my mistake and just go get it done.] However, the day wasn't done there. Later in the afternoon, we had Ryder's 15 mo. check-up where he was declared healthy as a horse and thought whatever place this was that let him hang around in his diedo (diaper) and socks all day was totally awesome! Until...the shots. He got three including his flu and for some reason watching him this time was only a little short of pure agony. But he is a brave one, that boy. As soon as we walked out I immediately saw a bowl of succors on a receptionist's desk and with out hesitation sternly asked (like I dare you to tell me no) if I could have one and immediately shoved it in Ryder's mouth. So sad. For some reason this round of vaccinations seemed the hardest to me. I think it may have been because there was one more shot than usual and the dosages (and needles) seemed a bit larger. (Maybe it was all in my head). And finally, Phil and I went to the dentist this morning!!! {woot, woot, Hip-hip hooray, Way to go, You guys rock!} So we're a little excited because we both may not have been in the past 5-6 years. Whatever. Minor detail. So to say the least, Phil and I (especially me, because I HATE the dentist) were embarrassed and a little nervous about what they'd find. I am happy to report that it went very well! It was an all around pleasant experience. Phil had no problems, I have three baby cavities that probably won't require getting numbed and we were both told we were in pretty good shape along with detailed updates and helpful hints. Again, phew). I have resigned myself to taking extra great care of my teeth the best I can. It's unfortunate it's taken me this long, but now I can see the numerous positive effects this can have. Plus, my toothies feel sooo clean. And there you have it folks! Can you believe how productive I've been this week! I can't. One day I'll be on top of all these things, but until then, I'm going to be very proud of what I do get done. I also tried to fit in a hair cut this week, but it just wasn't happening so it had to get pushed until next Tuesday. That's fun though.

  1. Way to be--girl!! I have been needing to go to the dentist forever and it's so crazy that one can never find the time to do anything. SO, you inspired me to just a)make an appointment b) clear my schedule so I can go. Thanks!

  2. I'm glad your driver's license stuff turned out better than you expected!
    Shots are never fun, but suckers always come in handy for those types of situations! :)
    You have inspired me also. I've been needing to make a dentist appointment and I've been putting it off. Better just get 'er done!

  3. Way to be a whirling dirvish! Taking babies to get shots is one of the hardest things about being a mom. It's just really really hard. And you are not alone about infrequent visits to the dentist. I have "officially" been to the dentist 2 random times in the last 3 years, and I seriously have no excuses--I love my denist. So much, in fact, that I had 3 of his babies. ;)

  4. OK, I haven't been for 4 years and I think you might have convinced me to go...to the dentist that is. You should blog your rockin' haircut...since you can now check that off your list. See you in upscale Canada!

  5. OH THE DENTIST! It has been several years for me as well. I am such a procrastinator though. I even have amazing insurance right now that covers two free cleanings each year. You are so good. I am going to set up an appointment...for January!
