New York Baby

So I have never been to NYC and I will be going.... what do I need to know?

I will have one day to site see, one day to kind of site see (I am taking a tour and going to a meet up but will have a few hours to myself to wander) and one day of plans (movie screening, Water for Elephants, don't judge me) and then head home.

Just a taste of NYC but I am psyched.

I found a dirt cheap hotel (well in NYC terms it is dirt cheap) and got a buddy pass for my flight so I am doing the trip in a rel. normal budget (again NYC terms) but I am really excited to see the city

Who has been? What must I see?


I am in a temporary full time position which includes 100% dental coverage so I am getting all my dental work done while I can.

I have gone (no joke) 5 times in two weeks.

first was cleaning and xray
second was replacing fillings on one side
third was replacing fillings on other side
fourth was a quick fix of my bite from a filling that was too high up
fifth was a quick impression for a night guard / mouth guard because I apparently grind / clench my teeth
sixth is tomorrow and is an appointment with the oral surgeon for a consult
then i book my surgery to FINALLY remove my wisdom teeth which have bugged me for years but I didn't have coverage so I didn't want to pay for the surgery....

ALSO my daughter had a cleaning and a filling so 7 times at the dental office in two weeks ha ha

thank god i have amazing coverage right now!

I am scared for the surgery to be honest. I will be put under and I assume they will take all out at once.... I am a wimp - I think I have a high pain tolerance, i have tattoos, i gave birth without ANY drugs (against my will trust me i begged for drugs!) but besides that I really am a pain wimp!

I am hoping to book it Easter weekend so i have extra days to recover without missing work, though if I have to miss then I have to miss but I actually love my job so I'd rather work, plus i may not have many paid sick days left because I get so sick for so long all the time - boo hiss!

Anyways - the dentists know me and love me and I don't mind them even though they inflict pain.... i don't have to PAY them to inflict pain and the pain is temporary and leads to long term better dental health.

My dental hygienist friend will be proud ha ha


NO, I didn't want it.

BUt I may or may not be watching WWE Raw right now - don't judge me.

I used to be a fan.... and by fan I mean every Raw and Smackdown I would watch or tape on my vhs. Every pay per view I would get or go somewhere to watch.

This was 98-04 ish. The Rock, HHH, Stone Cold.... you know!

We used to play drinking games, everytime "The Rock" said "the rock" we would take a shot. Never a sober Monday night ;)

Those were the days.

I actually attended a pay per view in Detroit Michigan in heels, a black mini skirt and a HHH Jersey... oh yes, I was "that girl" (but had the bod back then to pull it off ha ha)

I met a ton of wrestlers, and really enjoyed the whole phase. Once I had my daughter I still was into it - we went to a local RAW when she was 4 months to see who I could meet.... got tons of photos with her and wrestlers. THen were given free tickets to the show!

As my daughter got older, I watched it less, we still check it out on occasion but twice a year now is nothing like twice a week then!

Yes, I was a wrestling fan in the 90s....

I also watched in the 80s but that was when I was young. Hogan, Jake the Snake, Piper, Macho Man and so on.

I know it's "fake" but it is entertaining!

And Jeff Hardy......... I wanted to have his babies for the longest time ha ha!

Great memories!

I wish I had watched Wrestlemania last night - maybe after tonight's RAW I will catch up on the plots and start watching again...

... or not


You know what really grinds my gears?

Reading an awesome novel, hearing they will make it into a movie, casting it perfectly in your head, then "they" cast it all wrong.

Hunger Games did just that.
