Did you all have a nice long weekend? (sorry to my Canadian friends who did their whole Thanksgiving shindig back in October). I managed to decorate my blog for the holidays, but my fall decor is still steadfastly on my front porch. Usually I switch out the decor over Thanksgiving weekend, but I’m still nursing a cold. At least I feel much better than I sound, I’ve had three people comment that I’m sporting a sexy husky smoker’s voice. Sexy and/or husky I can live with – but the words ‘sexy’ and ‘smoker’ in the same sentence just doesn’t compute.
Princess Nagger and I had our semi-annual dentist appointment yesterday for the whole teeth cleaning experience. She was miffed that I scheduled it on the last ‘free’ day of her long holiday weekend, so I had to promise her a trip to Target afterwards to see what kind of ‘reward’ she’d be able to find. She’s recently really gotten into Lego’s – they’ve come a long way from when I was a kid, now they have all these cool elaborate sets that actually build stuff, rather than the funky imaginative stuff us kids did. A couple of weeks ago she started off with this:
Yesterday she upgraded to this:
Next up she has her sights set on this one:
I think she’s hoping she’ll get it when we both have to return to the dentist on Tuesday. Unless they have a wicked cool sale on Lego’s on that particular day, she’ll have to pick something else that my rapidly emptying wallet can handle. Princess Nagger has only one cavity, which is a miracle considering she’s lackadaisical when it comes to brushing – now we have a timer to make sure she keeps the toothbrush in her mouth longer.
The dentist office we go to is awesome – everyone there is so nice, and do a great job quelling Princess Nagger’s fears (mostly) when they need to work on her teeth. We both have to go back next week – I’ve been having pain in the same tooth they replaced the ancient filling a month or so ago…apparently they missed a spot. The downside is that filling has be replaced again with all the drilling and excavating and numbness. The upside is no root canal is necessary.
Princess Nagger fell asleep on the couch reading her newest edition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid (for the third or fourth time in a week). She borrowed Little Dude’s fleece blanket to stay warm, and ended up having our cat Zelda cuddle up next to her:
Smart girl and smart cat.

We’re still rebelling while Keely is still hiatus-ing (and maybe, just maybe she might be making an illustrious return soon), if you have a smorgasbord in your brain and want to let it out, c’mon and join in the fun! Rebel On!
