this week's themes:
snapping, stopping, spending, starting, skipping
Snapping... I had something else written here, but then this morning (Thursday), something else snapped. My brain. In reference to the next paragraph, I had some dental work done. They did a little cosmetic fixing on my front teeth. I snapped off some of that cosmetic stuff this morning while I was... biting my damn nails!!! I had stopped biting them for so long and then bam I looked down one day and I'd bitten them all off. It's as addicting as those soft drinks in the next prompt. *sigh*
Stopping the soft drinks. Like going cold turkey. You see, several years ago I had a cavity. In one of my front teeth. My old dentist filled it, but apparently didn't do a good job of it. Fast forward to last week when I had to visit a new dentist (because my dentist of more than 10 years won't accept my new insurance) and they informed me that the cavity was coming back and they could make it look better if I'd like them too. Then she said, "You drink a lot of sodas, don't you?" "Not anymore", I said. After having my entire face from the bottom of my eyelids to below my chin be numb for hours, I will not be drinking any more of that deliciousness affectionately known as coke (no matter the brand).
Spending time waiting on the weather. I have a project just waiting to get done and I need to paint some of it. It's just been too wet, windy, and cold! After all this cold and snow, tonight we are expecting severe weather in the form of thunderstorms and possible tornadoes.
Starting to have "Mom moments". Monday evening I took my oldest to the high school to sign off on the electives he had chosen for next year. His first year of high school. I can't believe that he is nearly old enough for this. I am wholly unprepared.
Skipping all things soda. I've tried to give them up before. They really are so bad for you! But they are also so very addicting! However, over the years, drinking sugar soft drinks have taken their toll on my teeth. There are definite advantages to finding a new dentist. One who tells you exactly what is going on with yourself and doesn't just clean your teeth and send you out the door. It's amazing how easy something is to do with the right incentive to do so.
