Weekly Forecast

Last week wasn't exactly what I had planned. Early in the week, I concentrated on finishing my book (George Martin's A Dance with Dragons - now I have to wait for him to write the next book in the series..) & preparing myself mentally for my dentist appointment. I was really nervous - the last few times I went in for fillings I had terrible experiences. Plus, that dentist obviously didn't do a very good job since I had to have 2 of those replaced: both silver ones: one was leaching metal into my tooth & allowing liquid inside my tooth, the other was cracked. Awesome.

I had nothing to worry about though! My new dentist is AMAZING! First, the freezing took SECONDS instead of the usual 10 minutes. I didn't even need freezing for my tiny cavity. After the fillings were all done without a hitch, Dr. Ng asked me if I wanted him to pull a wisdom tooth while I was frozen. Sounds like a big deal, but it wasn't at all. The wisdom tooth he pulled was a fifth, vestigial one - it's smaller than a baby tooth, though perfectly formed. And he let me keep it! Needless to say, it was the best experience I could have hoped for & recovery time was minimal.

All week, getting to my yoga was painful. Not physically, but I just had no motivation. I'm proud to say I kept at it though & this weekend found me with renewed energy. I'm really looking forward to the last 4 days of my challenge & then jumping into the intermediate level.

I feel like I'm going to have a very fruitful week - here's the plan:
  • clean the apartment really well... something I need to be a bit more diligent about..
  • get to my job search in the morning instead of leaving it to late afternoon
  • schedule blog posts the night before instead of doing that before yoga & job searching
  • practice yoga daily
  • eat all the fresh produce in the fridge & plan healthier meals
  • continue working on updating my 3 Etsy shops: create new banners, update my profile & listings, list some old inventory & work on some new items (I still haven't been devoting enough time to this weekly - I need to start treating it like a part-time job if I want to see any return)
I didn't blog much last week, so most of those posts will go up this week:
  • an introduction to my March sponsors
  • pictures of my tooth
  • a final update on my yoga challenge
  • a look at my updated shops including some new items
  • a reveal of one of my new projects for March
  • a new science post or 2 over at Science Byte
As usual, I've planned a pretty busy week, but I really feel up to the challenge. I want a satisfyingly productive week!

I hope everyone has a great week!

Glad to hear someone having a good experience with wisdom teeth, I'm terrified because people keep on telling me terrible stories and I don't want to pull mines out.
