Breath.... in... out... in.... out...
Excuse me while I try & recover a bit from the weekend.
It was a doozy of one.
It gave a big kick off with Friday
... let's start REALLY early on Friday. Lunch to be exact. I ordered an Egg McMuffin (Thanks McDonalds for breakfast all day long) - no canadian bacon, thankyouerymuch - & I take one bite. ONE BITE. & what is that odd, strange, not so odd or strange feeling I have in my mouth?
Yep... a tooth....
& please... oh please... don't let this confuse you for the other tooth that fell out less than a week before, on Sunday....
Whole other tooth.
I literally could NOT even believe it.
& so its sitting on my lap, on a napkin where I'm trying to clean it off. I call Ricky on the phone to tell him & just let it lay there a second while I talk to him on the phone.
& then Mother Nature decides she hates me as much as the tooth fairy because a gust of wind - literally - I can't make this stuff up anymore - a gust of wind came through my car & PICKED UP THE NAPKIN my tooth was on & blew it ... with my tooth... somewhere in my car.
Talk about freaking out. I honestly think my voice has never reached those decibel levels in my life from screaming.
That tooth is worth a thousand bucks - easy... I had to find it. So I am searching all over my car... & after 15 minutes, found it fell in between the seat & the console. That dark, dank, crumb place that dreams go to die... & apparently my crowns.
& the bad thing? No reaching it. Who made these cars that everything can slide down them EXCEPT your hand?
I honestly wish someone videoed me because I know I looked like a crazed person running around trying to figure this problem out. After a flash light on my phone, a selfie stick & a tree branch, I was able to push it to a point that I could move the seat & reach it.
OH MY GOSSSHHHHHHHH.....
So needless to say, I had to head to a wedding rehearsal right after work - with a tooth missing #redneck
Luckily, you can't see the tooth - another back tooth - & the rehearsal went off smoothly...
& then I had to jet from there all the way back down the hill to the dentist.
Oh. are you still with me? Because the nightmare isn't over.
SOOOOO, they had me sit in the dentist office for an hour & thrity minutes. 1:30 ... yep... only to re-cement it back on.
Here's where it gets good. OK - when the last tooth fell off, the dentist put it on to make sure it still fit OK & THEN glued it on.
This dentist came in & said the crown looks ok & then PUT IT ON MY TOOTH - like GLUED it back on... without seeing if it fit or if anything was wrong with the fit causing it to come off.
and let me also add - I swear to you - I never heard them even CLEAN IT OFF!!!!... I wait an hour & a half & he walks in & takes the tooth & glues it back on & walks out. less then 2 minutes. They said, you're free to go. I was like, HOLD UP - I CANT CLOSE MY MOUTH!!!!... for some reason, the crown didn't go on the same. It was sitting SO HIGH, I couldnt put my teeth together because that tooth was hitting my top teeth. Well its already freakin' cemented on... it aint going no where.
So what does the dentist do? pull out the drill & sands it away.. & guess what? I now have two teeth with HOLES in the crowns. Porcelain all chipped away.
May I remind you - this again, is the 2nd time this has happened in 1 week!!!!
& let me also remind you - so many of you have said, get a new dentist. These ARE new dentists that I've tried.
I'm convinced that all dentists hate me & have a conspiracy to make my life miserable. You have no idea HOW much I believe this is true.
So the rest of Friday night, I was at home bawling my eyes out because this tooth feels horrible - all kinds of pressure in it - doesn't fit - & is rugged & edges making it feel funny with every bite I take.
I honestly give up. I'm at the end of my dental rope.
& yeah... that's just Friday.
Saturday, my day at least had a different focus. A beautiful couple. It was a wedding day for me.
I have done this groom's brother's wedding 2 years prior so I was so excited to see this family again - & see how some of the younger kids have grown up - & new grandbabies in the family - lots of exciting changes.
The wedding day went very smoothly - even when it could have had some snags in the road.
For instance, some of the groomsmen's tuxes weren't right - so they had to take a drive that was about an hour away to get new tuxes & the store didn't open till 9... & they were scheduled for pictures at 10:15... we never even told the bride. She had no clue. Her sweet fiance was like, Don't stress her out. & I still don't even know if she knew about this.
But when I started working with the groom & taking care of some other pictures, the groomsmen got there at the perfect moment. Crisis averted. We almost come to expect a few crisis moments in a wedding day now. You just have to go with them the best you can.
Which brings us to crisis #2 of the day.... MONSOON rains.
Luckily, we got a lot of pictures before the wedding of the groom with his guys & the bride with her girls... but they didn't do a first look & it was an afternoon wedding - so we were wanting to do pictures after... except there were Thunderstorm warnings out & while the ceremony was going on, thunder was clapping & I looked outside & couldnt even see the cars for the rain. OH MY GOODNESS....
So we were very limited with the bridal party pictures... but in all of that, the bride & groom were never one time stressed or even worried about it. They were just the best.
They have a little baby together & when I asked the bride what her biggest fear of the day was (I always like asking that because when they see its not going to happen, it makes the day so much more enjoyable) she had said the biggest fear of hers was her baby not feeling good or being sick... how precious is that? The grooms fear? He said he thinks it already happened when his groomsmen were late. haha... but that just shows how laid back they were. I know some people get very upset at weddings for some of the craziest reasons. When you have your priorities straight, the day is ALWAYS better. The bride even said, if everything falls apart, I'm still walking away a wife... she's my kind of bride.
& I have to throw in right here, Chasity & I are in agreement... this couple.... their first dance? It is totally our favorite first dance I have EVER witnessed. There was probably 150-200 people in that room... to them during that dance? There were only 2 people in that room. Him & her. It was so romantic & you could see & feel how much they were in love.
I have always always always said that you can tell so much about a couple by their first dance. This couple? Mercy... they are magically in love. I guess it helps that when they did the 'generation dance' they had 2 sets of grandparents on the dance floor that had been married for over 55 years. & both of their parents have been married for over 25 years. They have good examples in their lives.
|Aren't they GORGEOUS????
Sunday ... finally a little break in life.
I went to church while Ricky stayed home to take care of some work he needed to do.
I just LOVE my MSM group more every time I'm with them. These girls are amazing. So much fun & each so special in their own way.
But Ricky & I did meet up for lunch & glad to get out in the BEAUTIFUL DAY!
It was just one of those days that lets you know that Fall is coming...
& then back home where Ricky was back to work & I started editing away... where I'll be for the next 2 weeks. The fun of weddings? I get to relive it for so much longer than everyone else.
So how was your weekend?
Any dental advice? Besides pulling all my teeth!
