On the go since 5:15am!

OK, so yesterday, I went into panic mode about a tooth that's been bothering me and started wondering if there was really something wrong like having an abscessed tooth or something. I don't have a regular dentist anymore since mine retired. I tried another and hated him, so I made an appt with a woman that some other mums have recommended and she, thankfully, seems great!

I had trouble sleeping last night worrying about all the awful things I might have to have done today, so I ended up sleeping on the sofa so I didn't keep George awake all night. He got me up at 5:15 this morning so I could take him to work and have the car. Got the boys up too and took him to work and stopped at Tim's on the way home for coffee. Came home and had a shower and got the boys dressed and ready to take Kyle to school. Came home after dropping him off and hung out for about an hour before going to pick up my mother-in-law so she could look after the kids. Went to my dentist appt after dropping her and Nathan off at home.

I was petrified and felt a little sick (because of nerves) by the time I got the to dentist. Nice office with all the conveniences of modern technology that's for sure. Didn't even have to move from my chair for the x-ray. Anyway, after they looked, what they think happened is that my last filling (that the idiot dentist did) has shifted. She thinks that's also what's causing the swelling in my gums. Thankfully what that means, it looks like, it that they just have to redo the filling and my issues should be solved, but I guess we'll know more once she redoes it next Wednesday! I'm just glad it's not worse!

After the dentist, I stopped and did an errand and then came home to find the boys having lunch. When they were done, we took my MIL back to the Skytrain so she could go home. We came back here so the boys could nap, but neither of them did and now we're off to go pick up George from work and as soon as we get back, I have to leave for work! What a day!

I'm behind on posting my Project 365 pictures, but hope to get caught up this weekend! Have a good one!

I feel the EXACT same way about the dentist. Hope it's ok for you.

UGH Dentists are AWFUL!!! I feel the same way! I even had one make a pass at me in the middle of a root canal!!! Scary! Thankfully we have both found good ones and thankfully your problem is not a serious one! {{{HUGS!!}}}

I hate the dentist too. Hope you're feeling better :D

Hope your tooth issue resolves when you get it refilled. I too strongly dislike the dentist.

Not a fan of the dentist here either - ugh! Glad it wasn't something too serious, though :)
