Wednesday, July 20, 2011rad dentists, a bird whisperer and lots of amazing events at 10:42 AM
I am trying to find the words to express my joy but all i can come up with is HUZZAH! I was contacted by dentist Jim Ellis (ironically my first choice in Ogden dentists because of his awesome tweets) about working out a good deal for my wisdom teeth removal. Whew! The source of all of my stress and pain recently is finally being released. I don't have to drive to SLC and i don't have to keep saving for eternity. . . well, what seems like eternity. I am excited that Jim Ellis will be my dentist as his rave reviews and genuine love of dentistry have eased my anxieties quite a bit. Id like to take this moment to give a GIANT shout to Uncommon grounds/Cafe mergot, mermaid baby, Jim Hutchins, Amber Loranger, Rachel Olsen, Candice Ortiz, Christine Smith, and the many other people i am undoubtedly forgetting, for your support and love through this frustrating process, i love you all!
I think this day is bound to be full of sweet surprises. As i was writing this i was interrupted by a knocking on my window and when i looked out my husband had a bird in his had who apparently narrowly escaped becoming cat food had he not found him in time. Surprisingly the bird sat calmly in his palm for a good 15 minuted before Bryan finally coaxed it back into the tree, to a HIGHER branch. Bryan is like an animal whisperer, all animals (even wild ones) seem to be completely comfortable with him. We will be on hikes and they will just saunter on up as if they know him. Dogs especially seem to love him and even the most vicious ones will turn to butter once he pets them. He really should have been a veterinarian instead of an adrenaline junkie cyclist, but i also cant imagine him not biking every day.
Speaking of wild animals we seem to attract, our slimey pet snail "booger" who we though would only live a few days (and who we thought died twice already) apparently can live up to 15 years and grow to an astonishing 2 pounds! looks like we found the perfect pet! He seems quite happy in his new home and moves around quite a bit, they eat a lot more than i thought and since i always have fresh produce around i think he will do just fine. He is quite a hit with the kiddos as well and play dates lately have been an hour of oohing ahhing over 'boogers" home.
