It may be February…

…but we’re in Los Angeles and the weather is INCREDIBLE!!!

Had a walk-n-phone this morning that took a lot longer than I thought – when I hung up, it was time to hop in the car, and head to the dentist for a checkup!

Dipped into my energy bar stash for breakfast during the drive – finally tried the Larabar Cappuccino. Not really a fan (I also don’t love coffee-flavored-things in general) but it did keep me full for three hours…

…good thing, since I wound up waiting almost 50 minutes at Dr. Stahle’s! She just moved down the street, and I’m not sure if this is indicative of the new staff, or if they were having a particularly crazy day…

…this office doesn’t have DVD movies to watch (but there is CNN on the TV). She’s the same great dentist, though, and I still took home a goody bag!!!

No cavities (always a surprise/relief for this candy addict) but she did give me some bad news – I’ve known for years that I grind my teeth at night, but it’s really starting to affect my gums/bone loss. In the past, I’ve used a cheap drugstore night guard, but stopped since it was uncomfortable and kept falling out while I slept. I would love to hear any of your experiences with getting a custom-fit one, since my insurance doesn’t cover the cost, and I want to make sure it’s worth the $$$?

Time to cut into this hideous beast of a melon I just picked up. See ya later!
