First… I couldn’t stay up for SNL because I woke up at 3am for a lil half marathon Saturday. So I just caught up with the opening song Kate McKinnon singing Hallelujah. It’s beautiful. Check it out if you haven’t yet. I read the words to the song and it got my in my tiny black heart.
2nd… How are you? I’m good except – I LOST A TOOTH. What.
Yes. I have a temporary crown right now that’s supposed to be replaced on Wednesday. I’m supposed to be careful with the crown since it’s not as ‘stuck’ as a real tooth or the permanent one. Well, I am not smart and I like to keep nuts and dried fruit in the freezer to make them crispier. Is that weird?
Anyway. I bit into a frozen dried cranberry and my tooth popped off. I felt it right away. It was gross.
So naturally I called 9-1-1 because this was an emergency and I thought I was going to bleed out!!!!
They told me if I was bleeding or felt like I was going to pass out they’d send someone, but if not I should suck it the hell up and get it together.
I didn’t really call 911 but that would have been funny, right? I did text a few friends sending them that tooth pic and begging for someone to bring me a strawberry shake. (No one did. Boo.)
I considered trying to glue it back on with some superglue, but then I got distracted with TV and candy (per usual). So my tooth is hanging out on the counter just begging to be lost.
Speaking of emergencies…
Ben and I went to therapy last week and had some homework – we had to go to a furniture store to see what the other person likes.
Yeah, it’s like ‘How to Get Along 101’. We have somehow managed to miss the whole part of a relationship where you figure out what your partner likes and why so you can meet in the middle. We’re starting from scratch with a lot of things.
It was fun, but just a fact finding mission – we didn’t buy anything.
On the way back we hit up a drive thru and I enjoyed the perks of the passenger seat = eating the fries.
Vegas doesn’t care what furniture we have as long as he can sleep on it for 23.5 hours a day.
This morning I hit the running path for 6 miles and then did a lot of stretching. I feel pretty good considering I hit the race pretty hard this weekend.
Breakfast was an egg quesadilla. It was too big to make a burrito.
My favorite food in the world is probably Chinese food. I seriously went to China 86% for the food. And even though I don’t always get the most authentic stuff, I love to have Chinese food before or after a hard race. I hit up a small take-out place for dinner last night.
Random question of the day… I saw this Christmas tree dress while shopping today.
I think I kind of love it. But I would never actually get something like this. So do I still love it if I wouldn’t buy it?? Do you love it?
