Project 52 Weekly Update

Read my Project 25 list here.

Boy, did I go to the the form of a root canal. This is my own fault of course because I don't go to the dentist when I should. I had a filling fall out forever ago and never went to the dentist to get it fixed. That decision was pretty stupid since a couple of weeks ago a portion of the tooth broke off. I had never had a root canal before and though it wasn't horrible, I really don't want to have another one. I could go ahead and cross the dentist off my Project 52 list, but I still need a cleaning. I will talk myself out of going back to the dentist if I cross it off my list now.

I'm getting my hair cut this week (if it don't come a blizzard) and I'm thinking of going drastic...maybe. Hair grows back and there's always hair scrunchies and ball caps if drastic doesn't look good.

I'm thinking of doing the Bozo look? Is this drastic enough? What do you think? ;)

 Number 33 on my list is to spend more time with Brenn. I wish I didn't have such a hard time in this area, especially since we live in the same house. This week a question came up while I was studying my Sunday School lesson. "Why do we ask our kids to look at us when we're trying to tell them something?" Of course, the answer to that question is that we're trying to get their full attention.

As a woman and as a mother, I'm multitasking almost every second of the day. I cannot think of a time when I give my full attention to anything or anybody. So, my goal for this year is not only to spend more time with Brenn, but to give him my full attention. Last night, I had dishes to do and laundry to fold, but when Brenn asked if we could play a board game, I dropped what I was doing and gave him my full attention. I did not tell him to wait until I was done (which is normally how I answer him). We played a game of Scrabble and three games of Uno. I won every game but most importantly I spent time with my son. :)

Here's hoping your week is a good one!


  1. This is such a great update.

    Sorry about the root canal. I had one once where the novocaine wore off. Worst pain EVER. Childbirth should be a breeze compared to having open raw nerves scraped out of my mouth.

    And I love what you said about full, undivided attention. I need to be better about that. Glad you kicked some game-playing butt!

  2. @Karen Peterson Thanks for the comment, Karen :)

    My tooth was so infected that even after they gave me two shots of Novocaine I could still feel some of the pain. I just wanted to get it done and over with, so I clenched my fists and tried to focus on something else.

  3. Yo Jenny....I love the Bozo look!

    Just reading your post makes me cringe in pain....ouch!

    Hope whatever you focused on relieved your agony....

  4. @Joseph Knowing that the toothache I had been dealing with for a week would be going away soon was how I got through the agony...

    Yeah, the Bozo look is growing on me ;)

I would love for you to leave me a that I know someone is reading my ramblings and nonsensical information. :)
