Let's catch up

I've missed blogging this week so let's catch up a bit, over some (virtual) coffee, shall we?

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that I don't even have a picture of coffee to share because I've barely had time to drink any this week, much less snap a pic. I would also tell you how that means I have not been the most cheerful person because I've been having some caffeine withdrawal.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you if I had to sum up my week with one word it would be chaos. Holy mother, it's Thursday and I feel like it's Monday.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that I had yet another unexpected root canal on Monday. My last cleaning was great and the dentist had one cavity already logged on my chart to finish up so I went in to get that filled, and once again was told it would need to be a root canal. The infection wasn't bad, but the dentist said the decay was right at the nerve so if we didn't do a root canal now I'd have problems later. I've been trying to remember the funny side of root canals, but it really has thrown off my week, and I have at least two more appointments I'll need to do in the next month because of this. Ugh.
This is my "I just had ANOTHER freakin' root canal" face.
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you Ben and I are attempting our first ever night road trip this weekend. We are headed to an awesome event where I will get to celebrate books and Ben - what else would I need - and while I'm excited about the weekend (more info and pictures next week!) I'm equal parts excited and dreading the overnight trip. I'm stocking up on snacks, music, and drinks with energy, but I'd love any tips you might have!

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you how I've been a knitting fool lately. I've been busting out scarves like it's my job and I'm excited to tackle a few other bigger projects in November.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you how my football team hasn't been *too* bad this season. They've lost a couple games (although last week's was only by three points and total crap if you ask me), but they also defeated the Redskins - the home team for where I live. The Lions beat the Skins at the Redskins' stadium for the first time in 30-something years. Victory was sweet indeed! (I may or may not have called my parents afterwards and sang "hail to the Lions!") Keep it up boys.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you I've been watching Gossip Girl on Netflix. The first couple seasons were silly and kind of fun, but once everyone goes to college? Ugh, I had to turn it off.

What would you share over coffee this morning?

ugh- my god- I CAN'T believe you had another root canal- I really hate dental issues, of all kinds. I've never have a root canal but I can't imagine it would be anything other than terrible.
Where are you going on your road trip? I have no advice since I never drive more than like 3-4 hours at a time lol. Total road trip wimp over here!
I hope the trip goes well!

I just really can not believe you had ANOTHER root canal. That is so sucky.

I have no advice on the overnight road trip as I am like Kelly and can not handle more than 3-4 hours in a car and I can't handle traveling at night (I avoid red eyes) because I can't sleep in cars and if my sleep schedule gets off, I am a horrible person to be around. ;) But i hope it goes smoothly for you and I am glad you get to attend that event!!

If we had coffee this morning I'd tell you that October has been awesome but I am totally worn out, especially since I have had so many evening commitments this week. I am looking forward to a full weekend in Charlotte as I won't have one of those again until mid-November. I'd also tell you I am really getting excited for my Paris trip which is about a month away now!

I can identify with the root canals kind of. I had to have 3 or 4 root canals done to the same tooth, fun times....

For the overnight road trip, caffeine, snacks, and roll down the windows!

I can't even believe you had another root canal! I love that picture of you, though. I would feel the same way!

My football team is wonderful at losing games by 3 or less points. Last two games, they lost by a field goal and then by 2 points. LOVELY.

Have a great weekend, friend!

I've only ever done one overnight trip but Eric drove and I attempted to sleep and I HATED it. Do not like driving at night. My in-laws do it all the time though. I see you made it so enjoy your weekend!
