orange you glad

Ready to go, I can tell Pierre is going to be a big help, as usual.

This is a family and personal record.  I don’t think I heard, “when are we going to get our Christmas tree? All my friends have had their Christmas tree up since November 15… can I have a pony or a golf cart for Christmas?” once!
All of the Christmas decorations AND the tree up before December 1st, nothing short of a Christmas miracle.

Speaking of Christmas miracles… I am very glad that this moment is over, although I am on my way back to the dentist today for the crown to cover this root canal. I was feeling very claustrophobic and on the verge of panic at this moment as all dental workers left me alone for what seemed like a very loong time with this suffocatingly tortuous rubber dam in place. Thank you instagram for giving me something to do and helping me not to wig out. And I’m so very glad my tooth doesn’t hurt anymore.

If I needed to tell you a joke right now, this would be the one. Because it is literally the only joke that has made it to my long term memory bank. Orange you glad I didn’t say banana.

    I hate hate hate dental dams. Did I mention that I hate them?

      I look so calm in this picture, it’s very deceiving, I was trying so hard not to freak out. I wanted a mirror to see what so much discomfort looked like- so I snapped a picture instead.
