Another year older

Today is my birthday. My last year of being in my 30s. Did I just admit that out loud to all of blogdom? Anyway, it wasn't a particularly exciting day, birthdays as I get older never are. I mean what's to be excited about, I'm getting older...old...ehhh!

So, to completely change the subject, I had a dentist appointment today, for a cleaning. Is it just me or is everyone in pain after having their teeth cleaned? Or am I the only one who has a crazy pain inflicting hygienist?? When I got home, my gums were throbbing to the point where I almost thought I'd have to take Tylenol to get me through the night at work. And now, some 10 hours later, I can still feel a sore aching pain. My dentist is an extremely exceptional practitioner, but the hygenist...I just don't know. What's the deal here? Do I need to change dentists?

Happy Birthday to a fellow Libra! My b-day is the 14th!
and yes ....DH are a new mean brood! Man they go after plague like it is public enemy #1. My gums are sore for about 3 days!

Need to go back to an electric tooth brush...have to ask SAnta for one for Christmas.

I got a new birdfeeder for my birthday, and some jewelry, and a little sign that says" I cook with wine.....sometimes I even add it to the food"

Hope you got a surprise or two!

Yay!! Happy Birthday Gigi!!! You're only as old as you feel. hehe
On the dentist/hygenist thing... I ask for the gas to even get cleaned, I'm so baby at the dentist, but in general life, I've got quite a pain tolerence. Hope it's not always so painful.

Happy birthday again Regina! I don't know about the dentist thing....my gums hurt a smidge from the flossing, but that's it. You might want to request a different hygenist instead of changing dentists. Good luck and hope you feel better now!
