In just a few short hours, I'll be taking heading into Diazepam Land. No, it's not just for kicks - first thing tomorrow, my 3 bottom front teeth will be extracted and I'll be getting a partial denture put in.
Yes, this is how I spend my long holiday weekends. :)
My teeth started becoming a wee but loose late last year, and after much consideration (and trying to figure out the financial side of things), the dentist and I decided that replacing them was the thing to do. It's been weird realizing that I've reached the age of being able to put my teeth in and out, but even though I've been quite nervous these past few weeks, it brings me peace knowing that this is all for my health.
Chris has been making me laugh by calling it my "new grill" and saying that it'll be like Picture Day at school every day. How can I stay in my head when he puts it like that? Needless to say, it'll take some getting used to, but I'm not going to think about that right now. I'm actually looking forward to being completely out of it for a few days and not thinking about ANYTHING.
And *that's* what a holiday weekend should really be. See you all when I come back to reality! :)
