me and my boring teeth.....

yes, I am purposefully NOT talking about the weekend and my trip to Detroit. why? well, because it would be a humongously LONG post full of inside jokes and that just isn't right. what I will tell you is that it was a TOTAL BLAST!!! and that meeting Cecilie alone was worth the trip! I can't wait until she comes for her visit in October. I will have her ALL TO MYSELF for about 5 days before I have to share her at the LM crop! lol!!

so, on to my teeth......I had a dentist appointment yesterday morning. yes, quite torturous to come home at 11pm one night after a busy busy weekend only to go to the dentist the next morning. but, yes, there was a method to my madness.....I got to sleep in a little more since my appointment wasn't until 9am! tee hee hee!!

anyway after the hassle of getting my insurance to company to admit that I was actually covered, I started with x-rays. really cool....they do them digitally. so like our digital cameras, they just pop up on their computer screen. then the hygienist came in to check me out (my teeth....not ME). I had to admit that I hadn't been to the dentist in 2+ years. guess I need to pay a little more attention to the right side of my mouth but otherwise I ROCK the teeth brushing! lol! normally they schedule a separate appointment for a cleaning, but since I ROCK the teeth brushing she did it right then and there! then the dentist (first female dentist I have ever had) came in and told me I had boring teeth and there was nothing for her to do. odd that being called boring is a compliment! lol! she asked again if it had really been 2+ years since my last dental visit.......like I had just gone last week and was lying because I have a thing for people scraping around in my mouth! sheesh! lol!

then as the hygienist walked me to the front desk she asked me to schedule my next cleaning.....in 6 months. heck no! I just survived 2+ years without a cleaning, why oh why would I come back again in 6 months????? anyway, I told her I expected I would come back in 1 year now that I found someone that my dental insurance was willing to pay and I was willing to go to.

the boys go in 2 weeks. somehow I don't think they will fare as well as me.

ok, I am laughing because you haven't been to the dentist in 2 years because I haven't either and DH is ragging me about it. Your story could just push me over the edge to make an appointment (but you know I won't ;) )
