So, I had dental work last week. Turns out that when you rarely floss and “forget” to go to the dentist for 4 years, you end up getting yelled at by your dentist, making 2 appointments within a week of each other, and feeling really stupid for not just flossing your stupid teeth. 3 fillings and a deep cleaning on one side of mouth Tuesday. Spent that night with a numb mouth and an ice pack, and spend the rest of my work week feeling really sorry for myself and eating very little because it hurt. Lesson learned: FLOSS YOUR TEETH. I have another one coming up Wednesday (the other side of my mouth + 2 more fillings) and I am deeply not looking forward to it.
I went on a date Wednesday night. It was fine. It actually lasted a really long time and I had a lot in common with the guy, but I also get the impression that he thinks he is God’s gift to earth and, hey, maybe he is. But it’s a lot for me.
Friday morning, I woke up at 4:30am (dutifully, for my 5am Crossfit class), went outside, promptly realized that my battery was dead, shrugged, and went back upstairs to sleep an extra hour and half. Then I woke up and realized I was going to have to figure out what to do with my car because I was supposed to drive to Brooklyn for an appointment that night and then down the shore Saturday night. I had my car towed to the dealership (thank you, Geico, for coming in clutch as always) and spent the rest of the day playing the waiting game.
Here’s the weird part. I have a 2015 model car. So, it’s brand new. On top of that, my battery died in December and I got a brand new one. It’s been less than 6 months! What gives? The dealership couldn’t figure it out either. Until they did. I had my GPS plugged into my cigarette lighter thingy (you know what I’m talking about, right?) and I never took it out. I seriously never imagined that it would be eating my battery. BUT IT WAS. Apparently that’s why my battery died. Anyway, they didn’t need to replace it or anything and I got my car back the same day. Everything was free other than my Lyft car to the dealership, and I made it to Brooklyn in time for my appointment.
PSA Part 2 of this post: DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING PLUGGED INTO YOUR CIGARETTE LIGHTER THINGY BECAUSE YOU WILL GET PREGNANT. AND DIE…I mean, your car battery will die. Scratch the pregnant thing.
Here’s a good segue I didn’t plan. Funny thing happened to me the other day. I made an appointment with a Nurse Practitioner to get a general check-up. I found her on Zocdoc and she had great reviews, so I was excited for it. The office sent me intake forms. Said intake forms informed me that the facility was Catholic owned and abided by Catholic rules regarding “birth control, abortion, in vitro fertilization, intrauterine insemination and other assisted reproductive technologies, and certain infertility treatments in unmarried women.”
Okay. I’m not looking to get any in vitro fertilization, infertility treatments, or an abortion at the moment. But I do have an IUD. And one of the things I was going to the doctor for was to make sure that everything was cool with my IUD and to make sure that it hadn’t fallen out of place or anything because apparently that can happen during the first year of use. Needless to say, I cancelled my appointment lol. That was clearly not going to be a good fit.
Saturday night, my friend Jason invited me to go to a bar in Asbury Park with a bunch of his friends. It was very kind of him to invite me because I don’t have a whole lot of friends in New Jersey. I had a great time, but had way too much to drink and ended up being very hungover and tired the following morning.
Mother’s Day was great. My sister-in-law treated my mom and her mom (and me…lol) to a foot massage at this amazing place. It was an hour of pure bliss. They even threw in some back and neck work. I was in heaven. Then, we ate way, way, way too much food and she gave me way, way, way too many leftovers. Family time is always great. I love spending time with my parents and my brother’s family, especially the little ones.
I won’t lie, this morning was rough. I could barely get out of bed for 5am Crossfit (BUT I DID…and then took a nap when I got back at 6:30 lol) and spent the whole day just very cranky and exhausted. A full weekend will do that to you, so I’ll have to make sure to get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight.
Tomorrow brings a vet visit for the lil’ bb and a trip to a sushi place. Wednesday is more dental work. Wahhhh. Send good vibes please.
