30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 4

25 Things To Do Before My Next Birthday…

This one is quite amusing since my birthday is Friday.  So I am going to make a list of things that I want to get done before Friday and see how much of the list I complete.

1.  Keep the kids alive.  This is very important.  Hence why it is at the top.

2. ¬†Workout Everyday…even if it’s just a quick walk around the hood.

3. ¬†Get every piece of laundry done…before Friday…now that’s a challenge!

4.  Get to bed before midnight some time this week.

5. ¬†Make sure all my “cleaning chores” are done by Friday…no one likes to clean on their birthday.

6. ¬†Lose a pound. ¬†It’s the tiny goals that keep me motivated.

7. ¬†Grocery shopping…we are almost in “Mother Hubbard” status. ¬†(seriously…click on that…have you ever read it? Creepy!)

8. ¬†Clean out one closet in the house. ¬†It’s amazing what accumulates in a year.

9.  Catch up on some shows on my DVR list.

10. ¬†Bubble bath and wine one night…maybe two. ¬† (my birthday night doesn’t count)

11. ¬†Order Little Z’s birthday present. ¬†Her birthday is the same day as mine.

12. ¬†Have sex. ¬†With a random stranger…hahaha just kidding…with my husband of course.

13. ¬†Take the littles to the park…weather permitting of course…today is cold and rainy.

14. ¬†Tie my shoes…**I am running out of ideas here people**

15. ¬†Try not to yell so much…that will take more of numbers 10 and 12. ¬†I truly hate yelling but sometimes it’s the only way they L-I-S-T-E-N!

16. ¬†Don’t strangle the teenagers. ¬†Need I say more?

17. ¬†Wake up. ¬†Hey this one is important….I don’t think the household would operate very well without my presence.

18.  Consume lots of caffeine.  This will be needed to complete 1-17.

19. ¬†Be Thankful. ¬†Figured I had better throw that in there…this is starting to sound like a struggle.

20. ¬†Take my Zoloft. ¬†Believe it or not…I forget to do this.

21.  Go to the spa.  Hahahaha!

22. Dye my hair. ¬†Don’t need all these gray hairs reminding me how old I am going to be on Friday.

23. ¬†Go to the dentist to check on the 4 gaping holes in the back of my mouth. ¬†It’s on the “to do list” board but I will probably still forget.

24.  Blog!

25. ¬†Breathe. ¬†Can’t do anything on this list without that right? **grasping at straws**

Whew this was a challenge!

Farewell Wisdom

images-4

Tomorrow I am having my wisdom teeth removed.  All 4 of them at once and being the big sissy that I am when it comes to my mouth, I am being put under for the procedure.

For years I had gone to dentists who “suggested” having them taken out but they weren’t bothering me so I decided never to have it done…thinking that somehow they would be just fine tucked away in my mouth forever. ¬†No such luck. ¬†My most recent dentist told me that I need to have them removed or suffer horrible gum disease problems. ¬†Yay me.

Now apparently there is a reason that most people get their wisdom teeth extracted when they are “young” adults…because it’s less complicated and healing is faster. ¬†Me being almost 40 something makes the risks much higher and the healing time a bit longer. ¬†I had 3 C-sections in 3 years and bounced back like it was nothing. ¬†Literally doing laundry a few days after. But for some reason having 4 teeth ripped out of my jaw bone has me a bit scared. ¬†Maybe because the last dentist that put me under for a procedure severed a nerve and now I am permanently numb on the left side of my bottom lip and chin. ¬†Regardless of the reason, I have been hoping for the best outcome and preparing for a little less then best. ¬†Meaning that I have been trying to catch up on any chores that I would normally do over the next few days. ¬†Hubby will be off for the next four but he’s pretty much like a drill sergeant and I am sure will expect me to be my bouncy self by say…..Wednesday. ¬†Let’s hope by having the procedure done on St. Patrick’s Day that a little luck of the Irish shall be with me…even though I have no Irish in me. ¬†Unless you count a love for beer being part Irish.

So if there are no posts or activity from me in the next few days it will be because I am heavily doped up on pain pills and well those things just make me as looney as Elmer Fudd on a bottle of whiskey. ¬†Here’s to a hopefully speedy recovery…because let’s face it…my life can’t be put on hold that long.
