Numbers can be quite revealing; here are the numbers from the past two days:

  • 2 fillings in the left side of my mouth
  • 42 dental instruments in my mouth at once
  • 10 times I gagged in the dental chair
  • 4 1/2 hours of numbness and a fat tongue
  • 1 34 year-old woman reduced to a whimpering six year-old
  • 9 Diet Pepsi’s
  • 0 minutes exercising
  • 3 episodes of Dora
  • 4 loads of laundry
  • 5 blogs I enjoy following
  • 25 bags of groceries
  • 2 hot baths
  • 73 loud, harsh construction noises from next door
  • 1 fat cat nap (nothing like it to change your perspective)
  • 5 episodes of chocolate
  • 59 puzzle pieces strewn across the kitchen floor by the puzzle-obsessed 2 year-old
  • 2 meals eaten in the car
  • 2 meals cooked (although what constitutes a meal is certainly open for debate)
  • 5 different pairs of shoes left around the house by one precious 5 year-old
  • 11 times I thought my car smelled gross
  • 3 Cawthons doing the Hokey Pokey at dance class
  • 21 hugs and kisses……………priceless!

    The Chapmans are laughing at your misery. We can relate to the car smelling and wondered if the construction was getting to you.
