I went to the dentist this morning.
I’ll say it again: I went to the dentist this morning. Going to the dentist is not one of my favorite experiences (as I think many of you would agree) and this morning was particularly painful. So I admit, I’ve been a slacker. I was a little sporadic in my visits to the dentist while in college (it’s hard to schedule appointments and stick to them when you’re traveling, living in different states, and let’s face it, the dentist doesn’t usually rank too high on a college student’s priority list) and I just recently switched to Tyler’s dentist, so needless to say, it’s been a while. But honestly, is a simple teeth cleaning supposed to hurt THAT much?! There were moments when I wanted to cry out in pain, found myself choking back tears, and looked at the hygenist with pleading eyes, begging her to stop scraping my teeth. Somehow she never noticed my extreme discomfort, and subsequently proceeded, relentlessly with her scraping efforts. I walked out of the office with a sore mouth, but no cavities (cavity free for 22 years baby!) and a renewed zeal for flossing as to avoid future discomfort.
I haven’t blogged in a nearly a week, so I thought I’d do a little recap of what’s been going on in the Jenny & Tyler world:
-We watched the Super Bowl with my parents in Bowie on Sunday and were satisfied with the outcome. (We don’t have TV so this was our first football game of the season–I didn’t even know who was playing until the day of the game.)
-We added a few more dates to our March and April calendar.
-Saturday marked a momentous occasion: for the first time since we’ve been married, Tyler & I both had off work and we were in Newark. We celebrated by sleeping in and having breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Yum.
-We began recording some acoustic versions of songs that we’ll be releasing each month. The songs include some tracks from the album and a couple surprises here and there.
-We’ve been writing songs for the next album (which we’ll start working on this month).
Other than that it’s been the usual shows on the weekends/Starbucks & BSM during the week routine. Hope to see some of you this weekend!
remember to brush & floss daily!
