Another trip

May 9, 2008

I had a respite from travelling for 2 months. Didn’t last long. Tomorrow I’m flying to LA. True to form whenever I make plans something screws it up. I was planning to fly over there at the end of this month. I needed to make my orthodontist appointment since I’ve missed 2 already. I’ve been having to fly to California every 6 weeks for my brace adjustments. On my last trip my beloved braces, that I had on for 2 1/2 yrs finally came off. I could finally bite into a burger and a slice of pizza. Mmmmmm heaven! Well I need to get fitted for my retainers. I have the invis-align on now but apparently my newly straightened teeth have decided to move on their own. Well after spending thousands of my own hard earned money to give me a killer smile and all the frequent flyer miles its accrued me these pearly whites where going to have to straighten up. Now I need to get fitted for a retainer. I fly out of here at 7:30 am, arrive in Orange County at 11:00 am and make it to my orthodontist at noon. To make the trip worthwhile I’m hitting the casinos all weekend. Maybe I could win some of the money back these chompers have cost me. In case you’re wondering why my orthodontist is 1200 miles away, it’s because 3 months ago I lived in California.

Well as my best laid plans went awry, I’m going to make the most out of this trip. I called all my friends. Dinner dates, lunch dates and shopping sprees are being planned. Let’s see how many activities I could squeeze in, in the next 4 days. To top it off I have to drive back so I could bring back one of the cars still left there. It’s a 23 hour drive and I do not look forward to it. Another freaking road trip, with blood-shot eyes, nasty rest areas and sleep deprived driving. This is my weekend… Feel free to sympathize…



  1. i can relate, i know the feeling of long trips. why not change your dentist? just a thought

  2. Hahaha I know. But it’s the end of the treatment and I didn’t want to start all over again with a new orthodentist. I got the retainers and I graduated from my ortho.
