Until tomorrow when I have to drive into work then it can stop snowing. I honestly think that we only have about 2 inches of actual snow & 1/4 inch of ice. I don’t love this in between weather where it’s warm enough to rain then the temperature drops & we get a nice layer of ice. Thank you, climate change.
In all seriousness, I had a lovely day off & appreciate all of the veterans who’ve sacrificed so much for my freedom. Veterans in America tend to be a forgotten population. Homelessness, lack of access to quality healthcare & mental health resources are just a few of the obstacles service men & women face. It’s unfortunate that they are forgotten by society too often. They deserve our respect & gratitude today & everyday ❤️🤍💙
I went to the dentist yesterday, it was terrible. I don’t generally have issues with the dentist but this time was rough. I went in for a cleaning but an old filling was leaking so he wanted to drill it out & replace it, sounded great. It was one of those old silver fillings & I’ve been wanting to have it replaced anyway. I’ve not had a filling in awhile & forgot about the numbing process, why are those needles so big?! Vaccination needles go into much larger body parts & are half the size. I don’t even have a problem with needles but those giant, stainless steel dentist needles creep me out. So, she’s going in with that needle & I swear I could feel it going directly into the nerve & then I couldn’t blink my eye which made me freak out a little. I was all hopped up on nitrous at this point & had a moment where I felt like saying something but couldn’t tell if the needle was still in my mouth or not & didn’t want to move then cause a real problem. So I just laid there internally screaming. Unfortunately, my childhood dentist removed much more tooth than my dentist could tell on the surface & it took forever for him to fill it completely. Good thing my entire face stayed numb for at least the next 6 hours. I actually started to worry, I’ve never experienced such intense numbness before. The filling looks beautiful though, couldn’t be happier. I’m never going back 😛 At one point while I was internally screaming, I started to wonder if I was actually trying to scream but couldn’t or was I screaming & they just weren’t saying anything? I watch too many horror movies.
Today, I treated myself to about a pound of mashed potatoes & ran some errands. Let me know what you’re up to, any snow in your neck of the woods? Don’t forget to thank a vet, have a beautiful night 🇺🇸
