Nothing to say.

I don't really have anything to say I just felt like posting - weird, I know.

Actually, I went to the dentist yesterday to discover that my tooth had abscessed - hence the screaming pain. He gave me some antibiotics and by the afternoon I felt waaaaaayyyy better. I slept fairly well last night and when I woke up this morning I felt almost human. Side bar- I had decided not to workout this morning due to my pain state and the fact that I can hardly eat; not good for training. Now, it's 2:00 p.m. and I feel really good. I mean better than I've felt in weeks. Weeks I say, weeks. I have a feeling that this has been building for a really long time and I just did not know it. I think I've been feeling just the slightest bit off and didn't even realize it. Doh!!!!!

Tomorrow I go back to the dentist and the tooth has to go. This, of course, raises a whole bunch of other issues; bridge?, implant?, something else????? Ugh!!!!!

As a public service message I want to urge everyone to take really good care of their teeth. My teeth are a mess, they don't sit straight and there are all these little gaps and holes between them and it's a pain in the butt to clean them good. When I was younger I didn't do it as good as I should have and I'm paying the price now. So do it, brush and floss every single night no matter how tired you are and see your dentist at least 2x a year. Because of the mess I've created and the work I need done I will be visiting a dentist 4x a year for the rest of my life. How fun is that????? 'Nuff said.

On to other things; We're moving!!! I'm getting kind of excited about it mostly because it will be a step towards the ultimate end. A little backstory: I have never wanted to own a house. It just has not been one of my great desires. I figure I'm responsible enough for stuff I don't need to be responsible for a house too. Well, hubby and I make too much money not to have a house and/or kids. Since the kids ain't happening, a house it will be. I've been dragging my feet for 2 years now over this whole house thing cuz basically, I DON'T WANT ONE!!! Plus, we lived in a sweet little house on the beach and payed next to nothing in rent; who'd want to move from there?? Well, a couple of weeks ago we got an eviction notice. They want to remodel the house and charge tons more money for it, duh!!! So my first reaction was that we would buy our house now and I started looking around. One thing I realized immediately (oh yeah, I spent 10 years in real estate so I'm very familiar with everything) was prices were too high and they were starting to soften. Also, I decided that if I was going to be forced to buy a house I was not going to rushed into choosing one. So after much debate, hubby and I decided to find a place to rent but put the house buying on the front burner. Anywho, we found a cute little house to rent with a big yard for the dogs and an attached studio for my little business that I'm going to be getting up and running this year. So this weekend begins the packing, yard sale, throwing out, insanity that will probably last till the end of the month when we actually move. In a way I'm looking forward to it as I love change and in another way I dread it. So we had to sign a 1 year lease, that gives me 1 year to get my business up and running and making money and find a house, line up financing, all that good stuff.

Okay, that's my story. I really have to get back to work now. For someone who had nothing to say I certainly managed to write a lot...

Wow! Congrats on the impending move. Is it on the beach too? You do sound much more cheerful in your post, so you must be feeling lots better. Sorry to hear about the tooth - I've never had one abscess but I've had a couple of root canals and the pain leading up to those was bad enough! You know how everyone dreads a root canal? Well, I've found I don't dread them at all, because the tooth feels so much better when they are done. Anyway, glad you're feeling better.
