I went to the dentist yesterday. It has been a long time since I have gone. I had to get an hour worth of xrays and I kept gagging. Then the xray taker and I would laugh. At one point I started to panic, which is when it pays to spend your day telling people "it is only your body going into to fight or flight and releasing adrenaline. You have to take deep breathes to get more oxygen in your blood to get rid of some of that adrenaline (I learned the last part yesterday in the carpool)" and "what thoughts are you having, you think you are going to embarrass yourself by panicking or crying, so what if that happens, you will still live". I wish I could tell my mind to shut up.
I have two cavities. I am counting that as a success after such a long hiatus from the dentist. He said I have nice "Gig Harbor teeth" as I am apologizing for how dirty they are.
And one final thought - all you stupid football players with multiple personalities could you just keep that to yourself? That would make my life so much better.

Video of cute little Harper (and kitty). We had a fun visit with Nate, Sue and Harper. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes.
A year full of blessings. Last year on my birthday I was offered my present job. The job has been filled with challenges but everytime I reflect on how much I have learned I am so grateful. Throughout the first 6 months I didn't know how I was going to make it, but now as the year closes I halfway feel confident. Another year will bring on much more knowledge and competence. We also decided on a wedding and were able to plan a wedding (with help of family and friends) in a few months. Everyone in my life presently is healthy (knock on wood). All is calm and well. Sigh.
