I’m getting awfully good at this “drive by” thing…

Sigh. Sorry guys. I swear I’m not trying to avoid you all. I just don’t seem to find the time to get here most days. I swear, it’s like every day seems to fly by. And yet, most evenings, I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing that day. Whassup with that?

Anyway, this is going to be a very quick update post. Let’s see. Since Thursday night when I posted…

** Hannah played soccer in the pouring down rain.

** Grace refused to go to soccer (and I didn’t push it, because I didn’t feel like going either).

** I woke up to find (yet another) piece of one of my teeth in my mouth. (I have really, really bad, brittle teeth that crack at will. Sigh.)

** Made a dentist appointment for tomorrow at noon, where I expect to be told what I was told a year ago by another dentist (which, I can assure you, is not even remotely close to good.)

** Both Hannah and Grace decided to join Girl Scouts. This is now going to involve two separate meetings every Wednesday in two separate places at two separate times. Lovely.

** Hannah’s dance classes also start next week, so y’all know where I’ll be every Tuesday. Lovely.

** Steve and I watched one of the best damn Steelers games we’ve seen in awhile. WOOHOO!

** I won the football pool at work, beating out 17 other people (including my husband). I friggin’ rule.

** Was inspired creatively by a bunch of totally random things, which is always cool.

** Scored a Wii for me & Steve the girls for Christmas. It shipped today. And now  I have NO idea how the hell I’m going to be able to wait until Christmas to give it to them.

** Started spreading the word to family and friends that anyone who buys me Rock Band for it will become my new favorite friend or family member.

** Decided I need to start getting more sleep, which is why I’m ending this post now and heading to bed. Later gang.

You have all my sympathy on the dentist front. I once went 11 years in between visits because I was so terrified (and only the mother of all root canals got me in even then). Good luck and have some hard liquor at home for afterwards...after all, it's a natural anesthetic.

You WILL love the Wii. Good luck with the tooth deal. And I agree about the alcohol; you deserve one after all that!

Don't you hate it when even YOU don't want to take the kid to their sports?

I need to do a "drive by" like this, but when I get home, all I want to do is sit and do nothing! :)

Been reading your blog for some time now and am just posting a comment.

When are you going to post the chart for download?

a perfect smile..

and when your teeth hurt..

You walk in, hand them to your dentist.and tell him to fix them..

never again facing a drill or needle..

Happy me!!!

Kay, the teeth thing made me cringe. Anything to do with the mouth makes me slightly ill. Even if it's just Hoop talking about how he jumped up to bite the string hanging off the attic door when he was a kid and it busted his front tooth right off. True story. My man, he's such a winner. ;)

You are going to love the Wii. Seriously the best game system EVER.
