1) Happy November, everyone!
This month is always special, since it contains my birthday...but this year it seems even more special since it is my 36th. I'm not sure what it is about 36, but I have always put far more weight on it than I ever have 20 or 25 or 30 or 35....it seems like an important number. Like a lucky year. Maybe it's a Year of the Dragon thing. No matter what, though, I am sure 36 will be a year to remember.
2) I just spent the morning at the dentist.
Ugh. I have a bad history with dental work so these are never easy. It will likely take the rest of the day to clear the anxiety out of my body. At least my new dentist doesn't seem as evil as the rest. He takes my anxiety seriously and since I have to go back in a few weeks to get some work done, it was really reassuring when he came out to the waiting room to assure me he would do his best not to hurt me.
Funniest thing, though...the entire time I was in that chair - all I kept repeating to myself was "I've run a f*cking marathon. This is nothing compared to a marathon..."
3) All Registered...
When I got back to the office - I was greeted by this in my inbox:
So - it is officially official. I am heading to Disney World. Not that there was ever a question that I wasn't...but this makes it feel really real.
Happy Thursday! Here's to a wonderful month ahead!
