Are we having fun yet?

The day started out rocky, got better and then got worse.

First, it was rainy and gross this morning. As I was running from my car to my office, I managed to drop my mocha light frappuchino...grrrr. After cleaning myself off, the day did get better. I am starting to enjoy the new job and just had a great work day. Then, I had to go the dentist...oh joy!

It was bad. Very bad.

Two words for you.

Endodontist.

Periodontist.

I have been referred to both. Then, I have to go back to my doctor for more work. My dentist pretty much told me that the $1,500 max on my dental insurance was not going to last long. Suddenly, I see the money in our savings account dwindling quickly. Yes people, this is why you DO go to the dentist 2x per year. DO NOT put it off for almost 4 years! There, that's my PSA for the day.

Anyway, I seem to be having the opposite version of slackerdom at the moment. Usually, I am so busy with school stuff that I neglect my running. This week, it's the opposite. I haven't opened my books since Sunday! But, I have run 4 days in a row! I wasn't going to run today. I was going to study and let my shins rest. But, I got on the treadmill just to walk and ended up running. Something about getting bad news from the dentist made me want to blow off some steam. I compromised and walked a "loop" on the treadmill (1/4 mile) and then ran one. The result was 2 miles in about 24 minutes. Not much of a "run", but a run nonetheless.

Yikes. I had no idea what specialty an endodontist was so I looked it up.

I don't think I read the rest of your post after that! I hope they give you a different answer than your regular dentist.

Hey Lady. Been there and done that with the dentist. Between two pregnancies I hadn't gone in almost 3 years. So that was an expensive lesson. Just had my last filling from today from the game plan that was laid out about 18 months ago. Flex spending plans help out alot (if you're not doing that already).

Also thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods. And who did your banner? It's nice.
