Just a rambling update

Yesterday was Ava’s first day back to school after a loooooooooooooooong holiday break. She was more than ready to get back to see her teacher and all of her friends, and I admit I was more than ready to have her return. 😉

As much as I’d like to say I had a fabulously productive day of accomplishing tons of things around the house while entertaining my little buddy Jules, that just didn’t happen. Instead I spent the morning at the dentist (with Dr. Hottie) having my teeth cleaned (I was 4 month overdue for that), three teeth (that I’d ground the enamel down to nothing) filled with composite – no drilling involved though – yay!, and having impressions done to have a nighttime bite guard made because I have a history of grinding my teeth – woot. Can you stand the excitement? The filled teeth are rather aggravating me today because they have changed my bite. I might have to ask Dr. Hottie to grind down one of them a little bit more so I don’t feel like I have a piece of cardboard in my teeth every time I bite down. I go pick up the bite guard in about two weeks. Whee.

Speaking of teeth, Julian got one of his molars in. He’s up to 8 front teeth and 1 molar now, and he’s finally getting over the nasty cough he had for the past month.

After the dentist, Julian and I had lunch with Jody at work for the second day in the row. The previous day Ava was with us as well since we went to an API meeting near J’s work and stopped in for a visit (and free food) on our way home. Let me tell you Google sure knows how to feed their employees. Every day they have a salad bar, sandwich bar, soups, hot meals (meat and vegetarian) and dessert (cheesecake, chocolate mousse…), in addition to all of the snacks, fruits and drinks that are available all of the time. I need to talk to Jody about bringing home leftovers on a semi-regular basis. There are some good eats there.

After the dentist and lunch, Julian fell asleep on the way home. So I parked the car in the driveway, went inside for a book (Mr. Darcy’s Diary that I won from This Momma’s Cafe) and joined him in the car until it was time to pick Ava up from school. It’s amazing how fast our day went.


I need to make an appointment to get both of the kids’ hair cut this weekend. Julian is sporting a lovely mullet these days, which is especially apparent since I cut his bangs and nothing else. And Ava’s bangs are in her eyes. D’oh!


Tomorrow night I’m going out with the girls (woohoo!) for Mexican food and drinks. I’m so looking forward to it. I can’t remember the last time we all got together for a night out and I think all of the moms would agree that this is very much needed and well-deserved. 🙂

Hope you all enjoy the weekend.

  1. I got the nighttime bite guard because I ground my teeth so much that I cracked part of my tooth off.

    It’s annoying at first, but, miracle of miracles, my jaw doesn’t ache anymore when I get out of bed in the morning!

  2. Rambling updates are good!
    I am glad i am not the only one that sits in the car with a good book or so knitting. It is the only time I get to listen to some music and unwind 😛

  3. Molars! Molars! How we love them. Now tell me where I can find Dr. Hottie and a night out with the girls (or just Dr. Hottie ;-).

  4. Dr. Hottie must be a lot better looking than Dr. D that we all went to for so many years. Have a great time out with the girls tonight. You deserve it!

  5. I had a tooth fixed and I had to go back and get my bite adjusted b.c I was still grinding each with the guard. It didn’t stop me one bit! And that sucked becuase I payed several hundred dollars for it after I realized my Insurance didn’t cover it! UGh. Well, the same tooth with the composite filling I just found out this week that I have to have a root canal and crown put on it.

    I hope you have way better luck than me!

  6. I’ve had good luck with the night guard – I wore down a lot of enamel, but since I got the guard a few years ago, the enamel loss has stopped. And I don’t have so many headaches…

    Sounds like a good day – have a great weekend!
