Weekend Escapades

Friday I finally had oral surgery to remove that stupid broken tooth.  It took so long because there was other stuff that had to happen first, like filling my mouth with nasty purple goo to take an impression of my teeth so they could build my bridge thing.  Whatever, anyway... I had the broken tooth pulled and also the upper wisdom tooth on the same side.  The surgeon came into the room and introduced himself.  This isn't the office I normally go to, it's like a satellite office, so he asked me my last name to write on the folder.  I told him and he asked me if I got teased in school a lot because of it.  I told him it's my married name so I was never teased but that we like to play with hostesses and maitre Ds at restaurants by asking for a table by saying "Two for Ruffing."  If you're a hockey fan, you get it.  

Anyway... he asked if I had any children and I told him.  He said, "Guess how many kids I have."  Figuring that unless he had a lot, he wouldn't ask that way so I guessed four.  He chuckled and said he has 8 kids ranging in age from 19 to 9 months.  Then he said he has had six wives.  I told him he's either very brave or very stupid.  He said he hates to be alone and is still looking for the right woman.  I asked if he was currently married and he said yes.  Am I wrong to think that this was a weird exchange to have with your dentist? 

So, the paperwork was completed, I signed the release and cranked it up my little MP3 player.  Dentist guy said that I wouldn't feel pain, only some pressure.  I was listening to the extended introduction to One Night in Bangkok.  By the time the intro was over and the song actually started, he was done.  It took less than 2 minutes and I didn't feel any pain.  He wrote me a prescription for antibiotics and extra strength vicodin and I was on my way.  

Saturday was the last day of Operation Bridal Shower prep and I busted butt all day to get it all together.  Steve and I went to Costco in the morning.  He cleaned up the yard in the afternoon and I cleaned up the house.  My mom came down and watched the kids.  Bit Saturday was also our anniversary.  Our dating anniversary.  We've been together for seven years.  It doesn't seem significant to other people but it marked for both of us, the longest relationships either of us has ever been in.  Whooo hoo.  We'd planned to have a seafood feast at home but later in the afternoon I decided that I wanted to go out.  We ended up at Houlihan's (because we had the kids with us) and both had prime rib for dinner. 

Yesterday was the shower.  Steve and I were worried about setting up in the yard because earlier in the day it was pretty windy.  Steve had to figure out how to tie down the canopies so they wouldn't catch wind and fly away.  I ended up being the one to run around and pick up all of the random last details: the sub, the cake, the flowers and the balloons.  I also had to pick up some tables from my friend, Donna.  I got home at noon and still needed to shower and get dressed before guests started arriving at 1.  Arrgggh!  It all turned out beautiful and she received lots of very nice gifts so all of the work was totally worth it.  Steve and I crashed really hard at around 10 pm.  He had to get up at 3 am to be in to work at 4.

Very odd conversation with a dentist! OR any man you don't really know well. Huh. Still looking, but he's married? I would like to tell his wife to run like hell!

Glad the shower went well. I saw the pictures and it looks like you did a fantastic job!

Love this!! :)

ROFLMAO!!! :D But yay for having a good (albeit, weird? flirtatious? insane?) dentist who can take out a teeth in a snap with no pain!

You just made me realize our 7 year dating anniversary passed last month with NO fanfare! It never occured to me. It's funny though we're so similar. Dating our men 7 years, married almost 5, married the same day... :) Hey wait. 7 years? Does this mean we get to have our 7 year itch? ;)

I got home at noon and still needed to shower and get dressed before guests started arriving at 1.

No way. This would be impossible for me. I would say "sorry charlie!" and just give up. Too frustrating getting ready that fast! :)

It should have taken longer to get ready, but I just pulled my wet hair up in a clip.
