We all have choices. Some are "right", some are "wrong", but for the most part we make them willingly (if somewhat be-grudgingly). These are the choices I made that have affected me today (as in Wednesday, not the "grand scheme of things" today):

  • I put off getting my bottom wisdom teeth taken out for many years - As such, I am going in tomorrow morning and getting them removed under general anesthesia (they're impacted and infected).
  • My Latin Jam class was cancelled so instead of going to the gym to do cardio I went to the grocery store - As such, I ended up doing my 30 Day Shred DVD at 11pm (be-grudgingly).
  • I am OBSESSED with the Bouncing Balls game from MindJolt on Facebook - As such, waited until 11pm to workout tonight.
  • I have over-scheduled myself, yet again, for Saturday - As such, I will have to email someone to tell them that I have to re-schedule (which I HATE doing).
  • I finally hired a contractor to paint some rooms in my house - As such, I have been coming home all week and thoroughly enjoying looking at my freshly painted walls (I love the colors I chose).
  • I decided to send the big monkey to speech therapy to correct her "R" and "S" sounds, even though most people told me she would outgrow it on her own - As such, she will be almost impediment free (if not fully) by the time she starts 2nd grade.

Looking back on my choices, some were good, some were poorly thought out/handled, but they were all mine to make.

I'm OK with that -for today. And tomorrow - I will be too doped up from the anesthesia to care ;)

The extraction of wisdom teeth will leave you flat on your back for a while -- and may be an excuse for well needed rest.

Enjoy the painkillers!

Oh, goodness I hope when you get up and around to reading this you are doing o.k.

Take it easy and don't over do, you don't want a dry socket, those are painful.

I hope it all goes well!

Hi Julia!!! How are you? I guess you're in some pain since you've gotten your wisdom teeth removed by the time I am leaving this comment!'re shredding huh? ME TOO! But I have NEVER done it at 11 PM - you are quite a hero, I must say.

I'm cracking up that UTI left a comment saying Enjoy the painkillers. Hilarious. So her.... :-)

My summer has been busy with travel but awesome. It will be hard to get back into any kind of routine....

Glad you got your walls painted - I love freshly painted walls....
