This week, I need to make appointments for my children to visit the dentist. They usually grumble about going, but they do understand that good dental care is important. We are lucky to have a likable dentist who is very good with kids.
I should probably make an appointment for myself while I'm at it. I want to look into some different whitening treatments to see if I can perk up my smile a bit. I've found some before and after dental pics online to show my dentist what I'd really like.
I seem to be going through a bit of a self-improvement phase. Make-up has found its way back into my bathroom cabinet, I'm considering doing some kind of fancy treatment to smooth out my frizzy hair, and my friend keeps threatening to take me shopping for more "grown up" clothes. I might as well make my teeth look good, too!
I have been single for about four months now. I don't think I'm ready to start dating yet, but I've gotten to the point where I am at least thinking about dating some time in the future. Consider it pre-dating.
One of the more pleasant things to think about is getting all fixed up to go out. Then, I don't have to think about the awful, boring, or otherwise undesirable people I'm going to wind up seeing until I find Mr. Right. Please - it may have been almost ten years, but I remember dating! It's not always fun!
Keeping my wardrobe up to date makes me feel good, and I know I'll be prepared when I do want to go out with someone and make a good impression. I've got plenty of new clothes. What I don't have is lingerie. I pretty much stick with cotton panties and comfortable bras, but I'm sure the time will come when I want to be more adventurous and wow someone who deserves it! Besides, it can be fun to shop for sexy things. Something like this might be fun to have!
Since my partner and I split up, and my kids are spending a couple of nights a week at their father's house, I have some free time on my hands, and I am trying to use it wisely.
Something I've been enjoying a lot lately is researching and learning - about all kinds of things. I pour over the news, blogs, and all kinds of other things whenever I have the chance.
One of the things I've been trying to learn more about is science - particularly science and the universe. It's just one of those subjects that is so incredibly vast, and I find it almost impossible to even begin comprehending the size of our galaxy and the huge distances between our planet and our neighbors. Looking at pictures and reading descriptions helps a bit - and it's definitely an interesting subject!
I like that I'm thirsty for knowledge again. I feel like it's been too long since I really challenged myself to step outside of my little box and do something new!
