Pretty Valentine’s Day washi!

Thursday 3


  1. First cleaning in 15 years. Yikes. Only one major cavity was found. 2 have the possibility of becoming one but they’re inside the teeth, so not 100% my fault.
  2. I scheduled 4 appointments at once, and they’re all on Josh’s days off, just in case I need a ride home. I’ve had one filling in my life (and it was a preventative one), and it was 18 years ago.
  3. One thing not happy is that, again, local schools are getting funding cuts … again, in favor of tax cuts for businesses that don’t even run their businesses in Kansas.

I’m a shaky mess

I have never claimed to have nerves of steel. Nowhere close, in fact. But today? I’m awful. I have to make dentist appointments for both my kids. I don’t think I can handle this stress.

I want to just curl up in a corner and cry. I’m exhausted. I barely slept last night. Dreams just got too weird (and I can’t even remember them). It just really SUCKS right now.

I’m waiting on a callback from one of the FIVE dentists (yeah, only five) that accept our dental insurance. Josh is totally clueless and believed that our HEALTH insurance covered dentistry o.O Um, yeah, SURE! NOT!

Can I just stick my head in the sand and pretend this week is over?

If you’re in the Topeka area, what do you think of
Derek Durbin
Robert Durbin
Kelly Hathaway

They’re the dentists I called. I just picked them because they’re in the same office. Shitty reason, I know, but FFS, I didn’t have a lot of options.
