To sedate or not to sedate that is the question

Confession time once again.

I haven’t been the to the dentist is 3 years  *gasp* and I am positive I have cavities galore among other mouth nasties. So I decided to research what sedation dentistry is all about.

In a nut shell the dental people give you a little white pill which is nothing like the blue or red pill in the matrix, so no need to fret about waking up in an alternate universe. This little white pill is the magically pill that will put all your dentist anxiety’s to sleep. According to the information I did find the little white pill does not actually knock you out completely,  it more or less relaxes you to a point where you start to see rainbows and unicorns. Basically you could be loosing a limb and you wouldn’t  give a rat’s patootie. Not that loosing a limb is a good thing but you know what I mean.

The cost for sedation dentistry is $250 for the consultation and then of course the cost of what ever procedure or procedures in my case need to be done. Thank god for benefits.   It seems that if you sedate you can get all your dentistry needs over and done with within 1 or  2 visit rather than 3 or 4 with a regular dentist. Hmmmmmmm???

My choices are:

1. Take the little white pill and hope that Laurence Fishburne is not there when the happy pill wears off

2. Make multiple visit to my regular dentist and pee myself as I sit in the waiting room while the anxiety eats away at the lining of my stomach

Feed back is welcome for those of you who read my blog. I am leaning towards sedating as I would like to get this over and done with once and for all. And I  promise to make regular visit to my dentist so that I do not find myself in this predicament again as it is no fun. :0(

Alrighty here is the scoop on Robin Hood 2010.

There have been many  movies portraying the thief in the dark hood over the past 10 years. The mysterious hooded man who steals from the rich to give to the poor is everybodies hero.  This time the hunky Russell Crow filled the booties of the hooded hotty.

Although Robin Longshanks or Robin of Loxley is somewhat a fictional character it is still lovely to dream of a hot man firing a bow at evil doers wearing tight leather pants, who drinks honey mead and winks at the wenches **swoon*

This version of Robin Hood is pretty much the same as the other stories of him we have watched in the past.  The costumes were spot on, the panning views of the country side were lush and green and the visuals effects were impressive. However in the first 45 minutes I was a little bored. *insert yawn here* it wasn’t until half way where the movie started to pick up. Robin and his merry men including a foxy little John escaped from their wooden shackles and the adventure for me began. Marion was played by the great Kate Blanchet and she again did not disappoint. Not oscar worthy by any stretch but she always entertains me no matter what character she plays. King John who was not the sharpest sword in the sheath was played really well by some guy. Didn’t catch his name. There was humor through out the movie and some good chemistry between the merry men, Marion and the bee loving Friar Tuck.

From a historical point of view this story was easy to follow and I think it was captured correctly. I am not a historian by any stretch but it seemed pretty accurate. It was pretty clear that King Richard the Lion heart was a good  hearted man but a tad weird, King John was a complete tool and Robin was again the hero of the day.

All in all I think this movie was good and I would recommend it to any Robin Hood fans.

I give this movie 6 /10 hoods.

Ask and you shall receive

Today I had another eye-opening session with my intuitive counselor.  I have always believed in what you put out into the universe you will always get back in some way shape or form.  Over the past 6 months I have  come to understand how true that really is. I have been asking for a while to find someone who would help translate what my universe is trying to tell me and she has done just that. I feel a connection with her, the room and the energy in our brief encounters and for that I am thankful.

I remember asking her in our first session back in November 2009 what do signs look like cause I seem to keep missing them, and on top of that I don’t even know what they look like. She asked me if I have ever had butterflies in my tummy when something exciting was happening or about to happen. I said yes. She answered simply,  that is a sign. It is a feeling deep inside of you that you just can’t ignore. It your universe screaming and shouting at you saying “Hey look at me, I am over here!” Needless to say I have now made it a point to listen to my gut more closely as it seemed to have been misplaced on the back shelf for a while.

She also told me not to be afraid to ask my universe for things that I want. Like a new car, new job, a new house and so forth. I admit that I feel a wee bit greedy saying I want I want I want all the time. These are all material things that hold no more importance than just being labeled as stuff. I really should be asking for world peace or something instead of a new pair of shoe. She assured me that the universe is wanting to hear all my wants. It wants to know your wants no matter how big or small they are. If you don’t put your wants out there, the universe cannot help provide them to you. Fair enough. I am not afraid anymore to say what I want. And just because I say it doesn’t mean I have a free ticket to get it. The universe works in its own time and with a little leg work on your end more things are possible.

Being grateful for what I do have is also something I put into practice on everyday basis. Where ever I am or what ever I am doing I say what I am thankful for in that moment. It makes me realize how lucky I am to have  all that I do have. And it is my way of saying thanks to the universe.

Over the past 6 months I have learned quite a lot about myself. I am finding out that life doesn’t have to be so complicated as I make it and I can have all my heart desires. I just have to make sure I listen to my intuition, trust in myself and believe that anything is possible.

I always leave my sessions with a smile on my face and a new sense of excitement and today was no different!

❤ cheers ❤

onay ackingsnay onezay!

I started back at the gym last week and it was going great until I took Wednesday off. Bad Idea #1. Needless to say I didn’t make it back on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. *gasp*

I have whipped up a plan of action that can not fail.

1.  Grocery trip for healthy foods

2. Work out at least 3-4 times a week

3. STOP SNACKING!

4. Think positive

5. STOP SNACKING!

6. Make better choices in food consumption

7. Drink lots of water

8. and finally STOP SNACKING!

Having compiled my no fail list I think this should be a breeze! NOT!!!

I have a good feeling this time my master plan will work, I just have to stick to it like glue and watch the miracle unfold. LOL

^cheers^

News

April 26 a close  family member was diagnosed with breast cancer. My sister told me the news and filled me in on the details that she knew and our hearts felt heavy and sad. Not something one wants to hear about anybody let alone someone in your family. I can only imagine the feeling of shock and disbelief that her and her family must be feeling. I have not yet picked up the phone to say hey how are you doing as I am feeling a bit lost for words. Sorry just doesn’t seem to cut it.

On a positive note, I know she will be triumpht in her fight and we will all be there to support her when she needs us.
