....that the most relaxing part of my day was the 45 minutes I spent in the dentist's office?
There I was, in the rather uncomfortable dentist office chair with that bright light shining in my eyes and a dental hygenist scraping my teeth with that damn metal hook thingy...and I was completely relaxed.
They had CNN on the TV [my dentist rocks..there is a TV in every room and you can watch any station you want]. Yes, in fact, I am a news junkie. Hence, CNN...so I was able to catch up on the news of the day. [As an aside: The floods are HORRIBLE! But they keep saying it's the "second 500-year flood in 15 years". Um, then it's not really a 500 year flood, is it? Cuz if it is, it's like 485 years early...but I digress].
Now, I hate getting my teeth cleaned -- I have very sensitive teeth and gums...and so it often hurts. And yet....today I blocked all that out and just focused on the fact that I was (1) semi-laying down, (2) watching something other than "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody" or "Hannah Montana", and (3) no one was yelling "mama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Dentist: How is everything?
Me: Good. This was probably the most relaxing part of my day.
Dentist: Well, I can give you the keys and you can just hang out here and watch CNN and lock up after we go.
Me: Thanks, but the daycare might wonder where I am if I don't show up soon.
Let me just say this: I love my girls more than life itself...but sometimes Mommy needs a timeout. And well, today my timeout was a teeth cleaning. Hey, I'll take it where I can find it.
Now if only there was a Starbucks in the dentist's office......
