-ivy finally had her 15 month check up- only 2 months late, not too bad. and she got 4 shots. youch! 4. that's a lot. usually i am for spacing them out but oh well, it's done now. i guess its all for her own good anyways, when you get in the dr's office and start to pick up the 50 different brochures that velzy and ivy have thrown all over the floor with pictures of kids with the nasty diseases that you are immunizing them from it makes you feel a little better about your decision to have them stuck with a needle. especially living here in hawaii where the climate is perfect for "germ orgies" as luke told my mom once- still laughing about that one. so naturally the combo of the shots and getting a new tooth kept her up late. she got to watch project runway with betsy, melissa, and i, which will hopefully inspire her to become handy with some needles of a different kind some day.
- i went to the dentist to have my broken tooth of over 3 years finally fixed and the last of my cavities filled. i had a cavity on both sides of the bottom of my mouth so the dentist offered to just do one side at a time, but no way dude- i drove all the way here and it's my last time coming for at least a year so shoot me up with the good stuff and get the show on the road. so he did- he shot the first side and all of the sudden there was a jolt of lightning going threw my lip, it was shocking and weird. apparently he hit a nerve. then on to the right side, when all of the sudden another bolt of lightning but this time threw my tongue, which was even more shocking and weird. apparently, he hit another nerve. he left for a few minutes and my mouth went numb, but only the left side and my tongue. he gave me the option of going on with the right side and seeing if it would hurt or not. you serious? no way, i would rather have a needle stuck in my gums when i know it's gonna happen than a surprise attack from a drill- more of the good stuff buddy. so he shot me up some more. needless to say, my whole mouth was ridiculously numb. my tongue was fat and useless and 4 hours after the initial injections, it was so funny. i seriously considered pulling over at the polynesian tattoo and piercing shop on my way home to pierce my tongue and get a moku, decided against that though.- and i like to play with needles too. i have been embroidering like crazy these days- quick photo-hopefully these will be sold at the sunset beach farmers market in a few weeks!
ok, enough of the needle talk, it's friday and we are off to the beach!
