I had a dentist appointment this morning to make sure my jaw isn't messed up. They're convinced I grind my teeth at night. I'm convinced I don't. I'm a light sleeper. Pete's a light sleeper. I know what grinding your teeth sounds like and it would wake one of us up. I think I clench my teeth, sure, but I don't grind. We'd know--I'm 100% positive about that. But they're adamant and I do think that the clenching is messing with my jaw and causing tooth pain, so I'll get the mouth guard they recommend. It's hard to swallow, though, at $739--none of which is covered by my insurance. Oh, the joys of being an adult.
Since my dental appointment was near my house and I weigh in at Weight Watchers on Wednesday, I decided to work from home today. I'm not going to lie; it is totally hard to buckle down. And because I spent the morning running around, I'm going to be stuck working late tonight. My plans to visit the batting cages with a friend fell through. I really want to go still, but Pete has to work late and Abbie has plans, so I might not make it. Guess I'll just have to suck at bat at tomorrow's game. At least I won't be sore.
I didn't run today because getting home from the game took FOREVER (the light rail sucks, for the record). We didn't get to bed until 1AM and my appointment was at 8AM.. I might try to run before dinner tonight, if I can. By the way, I tried out a new route yesterday and it was even more brutal than my normal routes. Check out the elevation on this puppy:
