Chocolate cake and diet dr pepper

That, ladies, is what I had for breakfast this morning! And it was so good! I love love LOVE to bake, and up until last night, I didn't realize how long it's been since I have actually baked something! This week has been rough for me, but I really don't know why. Wednesday and Thursday I was probably in the worst mood I've ever been in, and for absolutely no reason. I mean, we're talking I avoided even speaking to anyone so that I didn't rub off on them or expose my bad attitude. So last night, as I sat sulking on the couch, I decided that chocolate cake was the only way to solve whatever my problem was. It kinda worked :)

About 6 months ago, I had a filling in my tooth repaired. It had cracked and most of it had fallen out somewhere and I had a huge hole in my tooth. Ever since then, that tooth has been super sensitive. To only cold stuff at first, and I though no biggie, that sometimes happens right after a filling (I have had lots, so I know), but then it was sensitive to hot, and the past few weeks, I can't even chew over there. So I tried Sensodyne toothpaste, thinking it might help, and it made it worse! I couldn't believe it! So when I went in on Wednesday for my regular cleaning, I mentioned it, and was told that it was likely a tiny fracture in my tooth that was causing the nerve to be exposed. And the only way to fix it is to get a crown. BOOooo!! AND if the crown doesn't work, I'll need a root canal!! Double boooo. I am terrible, terrible with just getting a filling! They have to numb me up super extra and then it usually still hurts, so they have to numb it some more. I still go to the same dentist that I have always gone to, mostly because of the sensitivity to fillings and mouth work in general that I have, and my dentist knows, and always makes sure that he numbs me enough and all that. But, there are 2 problems. First, he isn't on my insurance. I have just been paying the extra for the last few years because it was worth it to me, but I think I have come to the decision that I need to find a dentist that my insurance covers. Also, their office is totally old school, I don't think they've upgraded anything since I started going there, oh, 20 years ago!! I worked for a dentist for a little while in college and he had the best office ever! I wish he was on my ins. My current office just doesn't have a lot of the stuff that other dentists have and with getting the crown and stuff, I'm sure I'll have more problems down the road and I just think that I want to go somewhere that is more up to date with technology and everything. Anyway, long story (not so) short, I'm trying to find a new dentist, and it's not easy, but I have gotten some suggestions so that helps.

Wednesday night, Lee and I went to a Drillers game. My company got everyone in my dept. who wanted to go box tickets and 10 "Driller Dollars" for their whole family! It was a good time :) I took a picture of us with Lee's iPhone and emailed it to myself, but I don't get how to save it from the email! Ugh, technology. Whatever.

Our new tv is being delivered and set up this afternoon, so that is exciting. Hopefully we can lay around and watch it a lot this weekend! :) We are supposed to go see the amateur golf championship or something at Southern Hills, but I don't know if it's going to happen. One of my bosses has tickets for it, and anyone who wanted could use them for a day of the event. I asked for Saturday because Lee loves golf so much. I'm supposed to arrange to get them from the person who used them today, but I totally forgot to ask, and clearly he's not here today because he's there! Don't tell anyone, but I secretly hope it doesn't work out because I have things I would rather do on Saturday. Like shop or something :)

Oh, I ordered that name sign from Etsy this morning :) I'm really excited about it!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Chocolate cake in the morning is the BEST! Love it. And if I might throw out another suggestion--Rieger Wood (dentist). Not sure if he's on your plan but I love him. And his family for what it's worth. They went to our church and he was just a really nice guy. The lady that cleans the teeth is super nice too. She does an amazing job (which means, sometimes I leave in pain because she did so good), but better that than someone who half asses it (if you ask me). Good luck!
