frozen mouth.

Hi all.

So, back to the world of blogging, I guess. It was Dallas' idea to get back into this, and I think it may be kind of interesting to go at it together. Most of the posts will belong to him, because of that darn iPhone and his incessant twitter updates. I will try to entertain you all with fabulous details from our oh-so-exciting life here in Edmonton.


Today I was at the dentist. Again. For the 3rd time in 2 months, with one more appointment scheduled for March for the last 3 of my (7!) cavities to be filled. As Rebecca would say - "augh."
Today I was having one of the fillings fixed that was installed (?) in December - it had somehow cracked and was causing me pain if I tried to chew on the left side. I am excited to return to chewing like a normal person, when the freezing wears off.

My beef about the dentist is this - I brush and floss lots, and Dallas takes, uh, the opposite approach to oral hygiene. And what did he hear at his most recent dental cleaning/check up? "You have perfect teeth, Dallas." WHAT? How is this even possible? I know, I know...genetics, etc...but I'm still annoyed.

All in all, I actually quite like the dentist. Probably has something to do with having a terrific dentist growing up and not having any cavities then, saving myself any traumatic experiences as a kid. I still like the dentist, am just a little annoyed at my teeth.


  1. yeah - it seems to be a genetic thing. or the water you grew up with...but you and i grew up with the same water and my dentist tells me the same as dallas. but did you know there's something called pregnancy gingivitis? i think i have it. shoot.

  2. I must admit that I have not gone to the dentist for a veeeerrrrrrry long time. Oops. And I'm pretty sure that I don't even want to attempt the Spanish one. However, this post is more to say that I am very happy to welcome you back to the blogging world. It's a good day.
