I’m having one of those days, babe. It’s been so hard to focus this morning, and I don’t know if it’s because I stayed up a little later than usual…
Well, later for me. 🙂 I was up till about 10:30 (night owl!) reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.
It’s such a great book! I have the itch to read a chapter now, but I shouldn’t…
It’s about three ladies who live in a beach town in Australia. Their lives intertwine when their kids all start kindergarten together. Then, gasp! — there’s a murder at the school! 😲
It’s not fluffy, though. My brain doesn’t feel numb. It’s poignant, intriguing, funny and sad at the same time. The story grabbed me like a lasso and pulled me along.
Anyway, I’ve been staying up late reading, and I think that’s kinda messing with me.
Aaand, I’ve also been browsing the web on my phone more than usual, and I swear, that really does mess with my ability to concentrate. Note to self: quit falling into the Facebook/Instagram black hole before bed and early in the morning.
When I feel out of it like this, I try to have an easy day, but there’s always stuff to do, you know? Just gotta go with it.
We haven’t talked a lot lately about non-makeup things, have we? We should catch up! I’ll go first…
Let’s see… Well, I went to the dentist last week and found out that I have a cavity (yay!). I decided to get it sorted out quickly, because I knew that if I didn’t, I’d obsess over it. So I did. I went back a couple days ago for the filling.
Actually, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Gosh, I can’t even remember the last time I had a cavity. It’s been years and years. I mentioned it on Instagram, and someone said that getting cavities after having a baby or breastfeeding is pretty common because the baby leeches minerals from you (yes, like a parasite).
So, yeah. I went to the dentist, which is not my favorite thing to do, but it wasn’t bad this time. The hardest part was the dental mouth frame thingy they had to use to keep my mouth open during the procedure.
THAT was totally exhausting. My jaw still hurts.
Oh, and the sunglasses weren’t my idea. My dentist gives them to his patients to make the bright headlamp less blinding. I wish I’d taken a side picture of them because they said, “I ❤️ SF Symphony.” Haha!
And those Bose noise-cancelling headphones? OMG! They’re amazing! They don’t completely cancel out every sound, but they dampen the background noise. It’s weird! You can still hear someone talking in front of you, but if there’s music playing or other ambient sounds, it gets filtered out. It’s amazing. I plugged them into my iPhone and listened to music the whole time while they worked on my teeth.
Definitely made the experience less traumatic.
