This Week in Happy: January 17-23, 2015 + Week 03 PL layout

Come on, Get Happy

I’m so ready for more HAPPY because things are getting a little wonky this week. Josh had a consultation for his broken molar, and got referred to the oral surgeon. All four wisdom teeth will be removed on February 11.

Madison is dealing with a sinus infection. Poor mite. I’ve had enough to know how to treat it, though there isn’t much you can do. Antibiotics won’t do too much, and tend to make it linger, from personal experience.

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.
