I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

My photo
I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

The Dentist

I have a Dentist appointment for my 6 month cleaning next Tuesday.

But... as luck would have it, the dentists office tracked me down yesterday, on my way to pick up my kids, through my cell phone with exciting news ....

They had a cancellation and could fit me in a week early ... meaning today.

I HATE (HATE HATE HATE) going to the dentist... HATE IT!!!

I can't handle the scraping. And no matter how well I floss and brush... there is going to be scraping.

I clench my fists. Every muscle that I didn't know I had gets tight. I get hot. I can't breath. Did I mention that I hate it??

Oh.... how easy it would be to just NOT go....

But I'll go. It will take less than an hour. I will be slightly dizzy and white as a ghost. I will check out, pay my deductible and make my next 6 month appointment.

And at last... Before I drive away... I will have no choice other than to sit in my parked car for a few minutes awaiting the return of normal blood pressure and color to my face.

I hate it ...
