My lucky day!!!

It sure has seemed like lately, when it rains, it pours.  Quite literally.  It’s been raining here for the past few days, and I absolutely love it.  It feels like home and the dreary weather is a nice break from all the sun.  I know that sounds funny, but being from IL, we’re used to this weather.  360 days of sun is nice, but I welcome the break in the sunshine.  Plus, this weather is totally getting us ready for Germany, where it’s 360 days of rain and fog.  AZ is flooding though.  There is standing water everywhere.  Apparently the ground here doesn’t soak up the water like it does at home.

This past week I’ve been on edge.  It just seems like its one thing after another.  First the whole dentist thing which completely freaked me out, then Mark being gone all next week while I’m frantically trying to get appointments for me and the dogs to get ready to go to Spang, then we tried to get the Jetta oil changed and the stupid drain plug was stripped so we had to take it to the dealership and $190 later it’s fixed, then we found out we need 2 keys to the Passat in order to ship it and we only have 1 and a new key costs $350, etc.  So this week just hasn’t been good, BUT today is my lucky day!!!

I went to a different dentist today and he spent a good 20 mins looking at my teeth and x-rays and he didn’t find ANYTHING wrong!  He said I have a chip on one of my teeth, but it’s not bothering me and it’s not major so he said nothing had to be done to it.  And I don’t need a crown and I don’t have any cavities.  I cannot believe it.  I am dentally cleared to go to Germany now!  SOOO freaking excited.  Those rotten bastards at the other dentist…. Grrr..

Mark also found out today that his trip to Shaw for next week is cancelled!  Whoo-hoo!!!  SOO excited about that too!  And the dealership is working with us on the Passat key, they gave us $100 off the price AND the Jetta is officially sold!  Now we just have to sell the Explorer and we’ll be good to go!

Hopefully this move will be smooth sailing from here on out!

Oh, Monica! I am SO HAPPY to hear all this. Hooray! And I'm totally pissed at the first dentist FOR you. Grrrrr, is right. They were clearly just trying to charge you for as much money as they could get out of you. You should file a report. Angie's list? Better Business Bureau?
