Okay... so Tuesday I went to the dentist for my cleaning. I was under the impression that they'd be cleaning the top left side and the bottom (both sides) but I was wrong. They could only get the top left done. So I had to reappoint for Wednesday at 1:00 and again at 4:00. I was not up for this at all... I kept saying that I was going to just cancel my appointments... but Steve made me go.

So I got the top cleaned and that wasn't so bad... I went on Wednesday to get the bottom done at 1:00 and they told me that they were just going to do the entire bottom right there and asked if I could come back at 5:00 for Dr. Mann to look at the tooth that's been really sensitive to hot and cold. So I did...

I got there at 5:00 thinking that it was just a cavity and I ended up having a root canal done. It was so awful. I mouth is very sore today but I can eat and drink cold and hot now without a problem! I don't have to go back until July and when I go back I'll be Cathy Walker!!!

We're about to pack so we can head down to Ohio. For those of you that know me... you know that this is a BIG deal, as I haven't seen Steve's parents in more than a year and a half. It should be interesting and I just pray that it goes well. I'm going to meet some of his extended family for the first time while we're there too. Should be fun.

Anyway-- we'll be back on Christmas Eve and I'll be sure to post something on here to let everyone know how it went. Have a great rest of the week and wonderful Christmas!!!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Getting Ready For Christmas

This weekend I went Christmas shopping with my mom. I was able to get Steve something (he already knows all the things that he's getting) that will surprise him. We got Dave and Heather and the kids their present and had it mailed to them, and I got mom part of her present. We've got to get my dad, Scott, and finish my mom and then get stocking stuff and we're done.

We went to the Lions game last night. It was very interesting. Steve loves the Bengals and going to the game was one of his presents. It was a sea of orange and black, not at all what you'd expect from a Lions game. The fans were wearing orange to protest the management. I wore orange because I love orange!

Anyway-- today we went to Mongolian BBQ for lunch with mom and then went back to her work and Steve helped fix her computer. We were there for a long time and then came home and made dinner. It was pretty much a wasted day (did nothing) but that's what vacation is all about!

Tomorrow I've got a dentist appointment (that I cancelled but I guess they didn't cancel it) and I am so freaked out about it. I HATE going... and I'm so upset about it! I've got a pedicure appointment for tomorrow as well.

We're going to Ohio on Thursday so that should be interesting. I'm supposed to go Christmas shopping with my dad on Wednesday and I don't know what time. I'd like to see the girls (they're all getting together on Wednesday) but it'll depend on what time I go with dad and what time we're leaving on Thursday.

Anyway-- just posting the latest news. Not much I know... I did teach myself new cursive today. We're piloting Cursive Without Tears at my school and I figured I better learn it now so I can teach it properly to my class. It looks so weird to me... almost like printing!! Here's a link to the site!
