Today I had a dentist appointment. It went fine. But I have a dental bridge that is a temporary piece while I have an implant replaced. Its a LOOOONG process. Last early March the plan was set. In May my bridge was removed and a temporary one placed. Then the implant post was removed. Then, we waited. In March I will go in to have the healing of the removal and grafting assessed. In that nearly 10 months of waiting, I've had to have my bridge reattached about 4 times now. Its a temporary bridge placed with medium hold cement. So sometimes the simple act of cleaning it, and around it makes it loosen up. and then all the things like eating and brushing make it loser and loser. Until it pops off entirely. Its also broken in two places. One place remains repaired, the other seems to be a lost cause. So, all of this to say, any visit to the dentist is a stressor for me. While Im not nervous about the dentist, its just taking up a lot of space in my life and I just don't have that space to give this extra thing. But, its done, its back in, my teeth are cleaned and everything looks fine.
After the dentist I went to Kohls to try to find a swimming suit. We are going to a waterpark/hotel for two nights while the kids have extra days off of school. Sadly, I don't need a new suit because my other is too big. It actually mostly fits, but a decent amount of the elastic panel has degraded away, and it is mostly sheer/see through. I *could* wear it, since that is mostly on the side, but isn't all that comfortable anymore. However, the excitement and pride in my progress was quickly knocked out from under me when faced with trying to find and trying on suits from a very limited selection. I was not pleased with any of them. I got one that could work. But I don't think I have the time to even look elsewhere. So, I have to decide between a suit I don't love, and a suit I don't love. It may be the "toss up" ends with me wearing my old suit and returning the new one I don't love.
Anyway, im heading out to the gym to try to get back the excitement about my progress by seeing what I can do better than before while there.
