Too Much Excitement Makes Me Tired

I woke up a little bit ago from a nap that was entirely too long. But I had a busy morning, so I'm not too down on myself. This morning I had a dentist appointment at 9:30am for a long overdue checkup and cleaning. Last time I was there was in November of 2005, so of course I expected the lectures about coming in every six months. I forgot! I'm sorry!

Anyhow, while the appointment lasted to a little before noon, we got a lot done. X-rays & evaluation led to finding one small cavity, and the dentist's recommendation of a "gross scale with irrigation". Normally I would have quashed that second part, opting for a regular cleaning instead - but since I'll be moving and don't really know when I'll next be going to a dentist, I thought it wise.

The dentist had numbed the right side of my mouth to prepare for the cavity filling, and went to work on the cleaning next. It was a bit more intense that a regular cleaning, and while I felt virtually nothing on the right side of my mouth, the left side was an entirely different story. They have to clean up under the gums and stuff and man, sometimes that smarts!

After the leaving the dentist's office, I drove out to Thousand Oaks to apply for a duplicate social security card. I lost mine ages ago, and figured now's as good a time as any to replace it. Besides talking a little funny from having a still-numb mouth, it went smoothly. By the time I rolled back into Simi I was feeling a bit weak from not eating all morning, so I opted for drive thru fare.

At first I pulled into the Taco Bell line - but the line was long so I reversed back into the street and headed for the Jack-In-The-Box down the street instead. Erik had said their new Andes Mint Shake was da bomb, so I wanted to check it out. So I grabbed a burger, some curly fries, and a big shake. That's not bad for freshly clean teeth, is it? Sure, drinking from a straw might be a little awkward, but all that sugar can't do any damage, can it?

I promptly fell into an extended nap once I was done eating - that's always healthy as well. I woke up from that siesta just before 5pm, and now it's time to do all those other chores I had planned for earlier today. Fun stuff.
