Put on a happy face!
Smiling. I made a resolution this year that I would try to smile more. Both to myself and to others. The limits of that are being sorely tested lately. I can handle the fact that when you smile at some people, they look at you as if you have 2 foot long fangs, or they’re wondering what you’re up to. The problem is that I’m running out of things to smile to myself about. My couch and chair have been delayed a second time and aren’t expected to arrive until early September. How’s Sean supposed to have a decent visit when I don’t even have a place for him to sit?!
I have another dental appointment today and regardless how this is supposed to be good for me, all I seem to be doing is shelling out money for unplanned and unscheduled treatments that suck up my insurance money and they say the really expensive treatments are yet to come. And while I’ve been brushing and flossing and I tell them this, they don’t question it, but the look on their faces, you can tell they don’t believe me. Is it my fault my parents and early dentists did NOTHING to promote good dental hygiene habits?! So I generally start any day with a dental appointment depressed and the mood doesn’t improve.
I’m still looking around for new job prospects, while trying to do what I can to enjoy it here. But it’s rough, it really is. I need to e-mail back the headhunters though. They seem to have a habit of sending out a quick e-mail that’s very likely to be ignored ‘cos they don’t tell anything about the jobs, just highlighting the same keywords they searched to find your resume in the first place. Anyway, let me get the day started.
