Spa Day

Yesterday I went to the spa. Let me tell you all about it. My appointment was for 8:45am...just the right way to start the day. Keith took the morning off to get Noah to school and hang out with Dora, so I was all on my own.
When I got there, I was shown to a room with soothing blue walls and quiet music playing. There was a large comfy chair where I could relax and a friendly chatty young woman was there to guide me though my "spa experience." As I sank into the chair the serenity of the place just enveloped me and I couldn't help thinking that it was so nice to finally be alone; with no little voices asking for snacks or milk or entertainment just as I'd gotten comfortable. It was absolutely wonderful.
In fact, I have to say it was the best visit to the dentist I have ever had! Oh, wait...did I forget to mention that I was at the dentist? I'd gone in for my semi-annual cleaning. And by semi-annual I mean for the first time in 12 years. I have had a bit of a dentist phobia in the past. In fact, since I got my braces off in high school I have only gone if I am in severe pain and have no other option. However, last fall when I finally bit the bullet and had my cavities filled, I thought it was time to grow up a little and face my fears. So there I lay, in the dentist chair....actually enjoying myself!
I know....I need to get out more.
But if you're looking for a great dental hygenist...I can give you Jocelyn's number :)

I don't post too often (actually it's my first)
but you have to tell your husband to take you out more often, you seriously need it !!!!

I can totally relate! Two weeks ago I went to the same type of spa. They gave me a channel changer, so even when the dentist was working on my teeth, I was changing channels and enjoying my time off. You have to 'live every dental visit like it was your last.'

I absolutely LOVE getting my teeth cleaned. I just went on Friday. My hygienist gets in places I sometimes don't feel I'm getting too. But I also love the gum stimulation. Oh, I'm a little weird, I know. But hey, I've been going every 6 months since I can remember. But that sure doesn't mean I haven't had cavities. Good that you are not being controlled by fear anymore.

Your 'spa' day must have affected you more than you think as you seem to have disappeared...hahaha...I don't comment much but I check here every now and then.
Lynne, you're scaring me....
