Rambling on a Friday

You just never know what you're going to find on this blog, do you? That's the fun of a "ramblings" blog. Whatever happens, happens. How profound I'm feeling on this Friday. Humor me. It's MY blog, after all!

Okay. Enough of that.

I did the UN-thinkable today. I made dentist appointments for the whole family. We haven't seen a dentist in a long, long time. Not that we haven't
planned to make appointments. It's just that yours truly is the All-Time Dental Chair Chicken Champion of the world. (What? You didn't know there was a competition?) Making the appointment was a big step in my recovery process.

I have had the mysterious "white coat syndrome" since I was a little girl. Doctors, dentists, chiropractors, butchers (okay, maybe not butchers) make me nervous. My blood pressure skyrockets during mere contemplation of visiting one of the aforementioned professionals. Why? Don't ask. I have no idea, other than that I know it costs a lot of money and I don't like being poked and prodded.

So, there you have it. In a short four weeks, I will be the first family victim, I mean, patient, at our new dentist. You can pray for me!

"Oh, HERE's the problem!"

Don't worry, Mom. I'm sure they'll only have to drill 3 teeth.

Sometimes I think the cost is much more painful then the visit!! Wishing you an a-ok check-up!

Ugh I have to make appointments for my family too. I tremble at the thought of going to a dentist.

Just prayed for you. I don't like dentists either!

Dropping by to say good morning.
