Ok, I don't need a lecture...

about not going to the dentist regularly...

I just broke another tooth... That makes three, three in the last 18 months! Before that, I'd broken 2 other teeth over the span of a few years and had each extracted in turn...

What is happening to me???

It's getting kind of scary!

My gall bladder, then mastitis, now a broken tooth, and that after a week of hay fever symptoms (and I NEVER have hayfever)...

This last broken tooth is closer to the front of my mouth, as well, it's the second molar from the front on my top right hand side - the back has broken off the tooth. I can't afford to get the tooth fixed, so extraction would be my only option.

Why do my teeth keep breaking though, that's what I don't understand...

Feeling a little under siege atm (Ari is also quite sick with a head cold, poor little baby)...

I need a hug...

Virtual (((hugs))) coming your way .... NOW!

Seriously, bad re: tooth. I can relate, I had one (a previous root canal) break off at the gumline, and I have ignored it for almost 2yrs... very bad...

Lets talk IRL tomorrow morning!

Don't worry, i won't lecture you. I haven't been to the dentist in 5 years, and so many of my friends are having to have dental work lately, it is scaring me and I know I should go but. I. Just. Cant! Arrghh!!

Big dental phobia here :S I totally hate having to hold my mouth open wide for so long the worst, it is like torture for me!!

Um..lack of calcium maybe? I really don't know. You sound run down, have you thought of going to see a naturopath for some supplements? I know they can be exxy, but might be worth it, esp when Kev's money comes through...

*more hugs*

Yeah, I'm thinking I might have to see someone!

Ikwym, Jayne, re: dentist. I'm petrified of them myself. In the past 18 years, I've only seen a dentist three times. The first time was for a general check up and that guy gave me such a lecture I left his surgery in tears, the next two times I went were only to have broken teeth extracted, those dentists were much nicer, mind you, but those times were emergencies not regular check ups.

I told Dave that if one of my front teeth break we're going to have to take out a personal loan to get all my teeth capped or something, because I'm so self-conscious about my teeth as it is...

Gah, I'm feeling so bloody awful atm, I don't know what's going on, but the thought of having broken teeth as well as my lazy eye makes me want to shut myself away for the rest of my life - just call me Quasimoto...
Oh you poor thing! I hope you're not in too much pain (I know, yeah right!) I hate dentists, too and don't go nearly as regularly as I should, in fact I should go soon but I am avoiding it as long as possible!
I hope Ari's feeling better soon.

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
