Friday Fragments

"As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness." - Henry David Thoreau

I don't like dentists.  Have I said that before?  Yeah, I think I have.

I warned him.  He didn't listen.  I showed up yesterday.

Let's cut to the chase.  He was unable to yank.

Not because I won the fight.  Because I lost.

I set a record for the office.  
Highest Blood Pressure ever recorded.

203/117.  No I'm not kidding.

I told him I had an unhealthy fear of dentists.  
He musta thought I was jokin.

(Yes Mom I am making a doctors appointment ASAP.  I promise.  Love you.)

Jacek had a time out yesterday at a grocery store.  
First time out in the chip aisle.

Then on our way home I pulled my first 
"Mommy can still reach you even if you're in the back seat" maneuver 
AND then
we had our first "pulling the van over and yelling at the kid in the backseat" episode.

Firsts are so much fun.  Ya?

This week hasn't been all bad.  A bit off kilter but I know it could be worse.

Thanks to in real life FRIENDS and bloggy FRIENDS.....
You kind of made it lots better. 

I received this advice from a friend. 
"life is all relative" 
"don't let YOU get in the way of YOU."
Candace you are amazingly strong.  Thank you for your words.

and on Thursday evening when I was feeling low I got this in my inbox:
"Woo hoo! You made my day (and it's been quite a day-- I needed something to brighten my mood)" 
Little did you know Elizabeth that this is exactly what I needed as well! 

and then after sitting and staring at her post for like at least an hour I realized that Mrs.4444 had quoted little 'ol me from my last weeks Friday Fragments post.
“More important than learning how to recall things is finding ways to forget things that are cluttering the mind.”
~Eric Butterworth
(I didn't know that Mrs.Butterworth had a son.)
From Kerri's Klutter

Reading it again..I still chuckled.  I mean seriously, did you know that Mrs. Butterworth had a son?  

Sometimes life can really suck monkey balls don't cha think?
It Is What It Is.

 I hear if you can laugh your way through it, it makes it kinda nice.
But who am I to give advice?
  I'm just a crazy chick setting records at the dentists office.
(Seriously, I know it's not funny Mom.  I'm calling the doctor today.  I will text you later.  Love you)

When I go to the dentist for actual procedures, I make him give me a prescription first for my anxiety. I can do the teeth cleanings (even though I hate them), but getting my Crown - oh no. I could not handle that.

Sorry Jacek was being naughty - I hate that for you. It doesn't feel good for you or him.

Have a great weekend and good luck with the doctor!

I tell you that I HATED THE DENTIST and I say THANK GOD FOR PLASTIC TEETH! AMEN I can eat what I want, no cavities, no drilling, no filling, no needles and no shaking in my breeches all the way to the office!! I say it is just wonderful and when I need a new set, I just have to sit for a mold setting!! I love PLASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kristen said..., that's not simply high sis..that's pretty scary...I was thinking elevated *slightly* cause of nerves.... :o

Kids are remember those time outs in public places...not so fun.

Mrs. Butterworth, did infact have a son. He had large monkey balls so media kept him a secret ;)

Try to relax you!! <3

Candace said...


I am sorry the dentist didn't go well. (To say the least.) Keep me updated on you.

Love you!

MommyLovesStilettos said...

I absolutely hate the dentist too!

Daisygirl said...

Oh how I loath the dentist! I bet I could beat your record...although I agree that is crazy high...but I bet I could!

Ya I agree life does suck big ol monkey balls sometimes...haha actually that just sounds nasty!

I hope you have a great weekend girl!

My mom is the same way about the dentist office and she has been kicked out more than once (and she is already on blood pressure medicine)

Ahhh the first pulling the car over moment.

I love those moments when good friends brighten up the day!

Beth said...

My dentist asked if I was having a seizure or low blood sugar. He was shocked that I was shaking that badly out of fear! Sent me to an oral surgeon who prescribed Valium to get me into the office and then used conscious sedation while he worked in my mouth.

Danifred said...

You are definitely not the only one who hates the dentist. Whenever I go, I dress in a t-shirt and bring a cardigan because I know that I'm going to sweat buckets and want to cover up when I leave.

Unknown Mami said...

Just reading about going to the dentist makes me stress out. I hope the blood pressure was just stress related.

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

I hate the dentist too and I have been putting off work to do. I know that if they monitored my BP it would be through the moon just because I also hate having my BP taken!

Good luck.

lmao you so crack me up.. ya know it's kinda funny, i don't have "normal" fears like most ppl.. i know a lot of ppl that are afraid to go to the dentist.. never been a problem for me, even knowing that i'm having teeth yanked from my head.. instead i have anxiety over simple little things, like talking on the phone.. for instance carl lee texted me to call the garage and find out about the van.. that was almost an hour ago.. think i've called yet?? um.. nope.. simple things like getting together with ppl especially if there are going to be "new" ppl there.. anything out of my comfort zone, which let's be honest, i really don't have a comfort zone, all of my time is spent with my kids or carl lee.. i don't even try to have a "girls night" or anything, because it just overwhelms me..
the pulling the van over, oh my, i hate to say this, but i'm sure that's going to be the first of many.. we've done it so many times, i can't even come close to telling you how many or even what for.. no fun..
lmao @kristen and mrs. butterworths son with the large monkey balls.. i actually lol'ed..
