June 30th

You guys ever fall asleep on your arm and wake up with the inability to move it even a little? I seem to be sleeping in really odd positions lately, not limited to last night wherein I slept with my entire arm underneath me. Why would I do that? That's not comfortable.

Shower now and sleep in a little, or sleep now and wake up earlier to shower? I'm still undecided.

June 29th

It's almost my birthday~

I'm thinking of doing a "this day in history" type of thing for the blog, where I look back at what I was doing on a particular day in years past and give an update or comment on it. Not every day, but it might be a fun little thing to include every now and then, right? For example...

June 29th, 2011: I got my driver's license! And yes, I did take it well after I turned 16. But I guess I've been able to legally drive by myself for awhile now, so go me.

June 28th

So I thought today was Friday for a bit...working every other day, including weekends, can get confusing. Gotta be up bright and early again tomorrow! I always find it funny that I say that though, because when I was working at the hotel I would work 7-3 shifts all the time, and somehow that was manageable...but waking up at 7:00 is hard now. I guess with the hotel I could my breakfast once I got to work, and there was almost no traffic so my commute was literally half of what it is now...then again, scraping ice off of my car at 6:45 AM in the freezing Minnesota winters wasn't exactly great.

I could go for like a really long shower. Deep cleansed and all that. Sometimes I just wanna feel extra squeaky clean!

June 27th

I only got like four hours of sleep last night! That was a great time! I laid in bed for ages trying to sleep and it just wasn't happening. I tried so damn hard. So I definitely took a nap after work. And I still kinda need to eat a proper dinner.

June 26th

Work tomorrow bright and early tomorrow! I need to try to get to sleep early but I slept a lot today because I've been inexplicably tired all week, so my sleep schedule is all messed up.

I want some fro-yo, you guys.

June 25th

I've been playing a lot of HuniePop lately. In fact, I started a new save file and beat it already. I think I'm gonna mess around in Alpha Mode for a bit, actually. And possibly try to get another file back to 100% completion, since all my saves got wiped for some reason. At least I kept all of my achievements! I need to finish up the achievements in HunieCam Studio but I'm super out of practice. Maybe I'll try for that though.

June 24th

Okay guys, I am mega tired. I feel like I slept all day. And evening. I have no idea why. But I do know that I can finally eat without pain which is awesome.

June 23rd

Today was very long and very stressful. The good news is that my dad's surgery went well and he's just recovering in the hospital for right now. The less good news is that even though today is Cas' birthday, he spent most of it at the vet because he has FLUTD, which is the cat version of a UTI. That was less than fun, and also expensive.

June 22nd

I'm so tired y'all. I barely got any sleep last night, had a super stressful and long day at work, and then napped for ages when I got home. I have to get up early again tomorrow, and I'm a little worried that since I took such a long nap earlier, I won't be able to get good rest. On the other hand, I do feel pretty lethargic. Thank goodness I have a three day weekend. No idea what I'm going to do, but I'm gonna enjoy it.

I saw so many cats today! Like at least fifty cats! And no, I didn't adopt any of them, but I made some good friends! There was a beautiful chocolate brown Siamese mix with the brightest blue eyes and its name was Sam. Such a sweetheart! I also made friends with Cupcake and Q-Tip and Clematis and Trabue and many more whose names I don't know. I do know that I would like to go visit them again, though. Also Q-Tip is a great name for a cat.

Hi friends! Work was a little hectic today, but today was chill and my mouth is feeling better, which is really encouraging. I have the day off tomorrow so I might go visit some shelter animals. There's a place near here that's currently housing two pigs! I hope I can go see them.

June 19th

Whee, I got my hair done today and it looks so fab! And it's curled all nicely and whatnot as well. I'm pretty stoked about the ability to leave the house for work tomorrow with minimal effort put in.

A very happy Pokémon Go day for this girl: I caught a Lapras, and I finally have a Typhlosion! This "fire and ice" event is the best.

June 18th

Not much to say about today! Just a lazy Sunday, pretty much. I tried to play HuniePop last night and found out all of my saves are inexplicably gone. So that's super duper awesome. I started a new one though. (I miss the one that was 100% complete though.) I might also try and get back into HunieCam Studio to get the last two achievements.

June 17th

My mouth is actually kinda a little less sore! Work was kinda stressful, but I get a nice long day off tomorrow, hallelujah. Also, I'm hungry! And I want to be able to eat normal food again. Please?

June 16th

Hey friends, it's me! The one with the sore mouth!

So I spent about seven hours at the dentist yesterday. The first hour was them getting me all set up and trying very hard to find a vein to put my sweet, sweet sedatives took eight tries. My arms and hands and wrists are...kinda bruised. That part wasn't very fun. After they got it working though, things went pretty smoothly. I don't have a great memory of it, I remember a few things here and there but mostly I was just really tired and zoned out. I'd close my eyes and open them what felt like a few minutes later when it was actually probably like half and hour later. But I didn't feel anxious about not "being in control" or any of that stuff I was worried about. I just kinda let myself be chill. The problem came in the last hour when they were easing me out of the sedatives...and the Novocaine was wearing off. Along with my dentist there were two assistants, one of whom was not the gentle sort of person. She took my temporary crowns on and off so many tines and she did so very aggressively. I was literally cringing in pain and she didn't say anything to me or ask if I was okay. She did tell me to "keep my mouth open" a lot. You know, your jaw gets tired when it's been forced open for six hours. I was trying.

So on the plus side, a majority of my fillings and crowns are done. I still need to get my veneers redone and my two temporary crowns (from my root canal teeth) replaced with permanent ones. I also have my upper right teeth to get filled. So I have another long-ish appointment ahead of me, though I don't think I'll need or want sedation for it.

The downside to the sedation is that stuff will stay in you for awhile and you'll be a sleepy sheep for like an entire 24 hours. Hell, I'm still kinda tired and I've napped today. And my mouth hurts a lot. Mostly where aggressive-assistant was jamming temporary crowns down into my gums, but also my jaw from my mouth being propped open for so long. I can only eat very soft foods, and even trying to chew things like bread can be painful.

Once I get my work schedule tomorrow, I'll be able to get my next appointment(s) set up. I am so ready to be done with all of this. I know it'll be worth it by my goodness, this is a lot! At least I have a wonderful kitty to keep me company.

June 15th

Good morning friends! I got a little worried that my sedation would mess me up and I'd forget to blog so I'm just doing it now! I'm such a forward thinker. Wish me well today!

June 14th

Today has been a very sleepy day, probably because I was stressed out and in pain yesterday, and I'm stressed out about tomorrow. Funnily, I learned that eight years ago tomorrow is the day I had my wisdom teeth out. June 15th must just be that sort of day. But considering how well that went, it kind of makes me hopeful that tomorrow will go just as well. I even printed off a list of questions to ask my dentist about the sedation process because I am an anxious mess/a prepared human. I just had dinner which means no more eating until tomorrow after everything is done, which suuucks because I'm such a breakfast person. I'm also dreading the point where I have to stop drinking water, which is 6 AM. I'm gonna be so thirsty. Do you suppose chewing gum is okay?

June 13th

How many times did I inexplicably write the date as 9/13 on my dental paperwork today? Two. Two times. What month am I living in?

This root canal hurt more than the last one, and it's still quite sore. So I'm going to have some ice cream, even though I already had a Frosty from Wendy's earlier. Eating soft foods and only chewing with my non-dominant side is very weird to me. But I'll get all sorted out on Thursday, I hope, and the sedation will be fine, and like 70% of my teeth with be all good to go! The rest will be my upper right side and my front four veneers, and I am so ready for that. I can't wait to have a nice smile again. It will be such a confidence boost.

Monday, June 12, 2017

June 12th

Tomorrow: Root canal! Thursday: Crowns! Oh boy, how exciting! I'm actually going to be doing sedation dentistry on Thursday so I'm gonna be all out of it and whatnot. I'm honestly more nervous about the sedation than the dental work at this point, just because I don't know how it will affect me. I think everything will be okay though!

Happy Sunday! I spent the day relaxing with Cas. It was very nice.

Hello to Ali who has been commenting lately! Nice to have you here!

I really do love my work family. They're such great people and I feel so darn lucky to work there.

I have a free day tomorrow...what should I do?

June 9th

Today was really nice until I got a headache! I have been so tense in my left shoulder area lately, it's affecting my neck and head as well. I'm thinking of getting a different sort of pillow to see if that helps.

I'm not super sleepy just yet so I'm thinking I'll watch something...maybe Netflix, maybe YouTube? I need to catch up on Orange is the New Black. Oh, and I want to continue my re-watch of Akame ga Kill! as well.

Tomorrow calls for a nice long shower and then hopefully not having to leave too early to get to work on time because the threat of really bad traffic is real. Thanks, IKEA.

June 8th

I'm a bit chilly and a bit sleepy. I blame the ice cream. So I'm just gonna have a super chill - no pun intended - evening with Cas. Gonna watch some YouTube, catch some Pokémon, snuggle up under a blanket...I don't work tomorrow, so I'm gonna pretend it's cozy weekend evening.

Dear Universe: I would please like money to pay my electric bill, and also to get a massage. And other things I need, but like mostly those first two right now. Also I would please like for Saturday to be a fun day even though I have to go to work instead of the Pride Parade and also that my dentist appointments next week go well. Thanks. Love, Kate.

June 6th

Oh hey, it's a month until my birthday. Do I have any plans? Nope, just existential dread!

My neck is hella messed up. I think I pinched a nerve somewhere in my shoulder, maybe? My sinuses are also kinda weird. Oh, and my commute tomorrow is probably gonna be like two hours. Gotta love road closures and high traffic and all that.

Time to put frozen veggies on my face.

All you really need to know is that I fell in love with a Frenchie puppy today and I am infinitely happy.

My insides are still not all in agreement with each other. Can't everyone just get along?

I have tomorrow off. I kinda want to hit up some thrift stores.

Short little entry today since I've had a tummy ache for the latter half of the day and just want to rest. Today was a really nice, sunny day though. A little too warm for my taste, but still pretty.

June 2nd

Very sleepy tonight. Work was long. Sleep last night was unpredictable and/or nightmare-ridden. So I'm gonna catch some z's now.

Damn y'all, I had a productive day. I did so much laundry. I also went swimming since the pool just opened. My bed has fresh sheets, new pillows and blankets, and it is comfy as heck. I took out the trash, did some cleaning, took  a nice shower...I had myself a day. Now I'm hungry and also kinda ready for bed. Happy first of June!
