Happy September! We’re definitely getting a touch of fall here in the northeast. It’s usually in the 40’s in the morning when I wake up, but it’s still nice and summery during the day. I’m hoping these warm days last through September to make up for the rainy, cold June we had.

I had my wisdom teeth out this morning. I took a “sick day” from work, because my appointment is at 11:30. Thankfully, I only had two left that need to come out (had the other two out back in college), and it was just be a simple extraction rather than a surgical procedure, because the teeth are in my mouth. So far, no swelling and manageable pain. I just hope I can attempt a long run on Sunday or Monday. I need to ask my oral surgeon about that…

Long weekend, whoop whoop! I’m VERY excited to have a four day weekend, thanks to oral surgery and Labor Day. We’re taking a quickie road trip to MA tomorrow to see a show, then I hope to run long at some point, and maybe do a hike and/or some swimming with Ben too. I just hope the weather holds out, and my mouth doesn’t hurt too much.

Have you had your wisdom teeth out?

I scheduled two very adult-y things this week. One, I scheduled my annual physical. Two, I FINALLY scheduled a consult for wisdom teeth extraction that I originally got a referral for OVER A YEAR AGO. I’m trying to get all this icky surgery/blood work etc out of the way before we start trying to get pregnant, and this week helped me move toward accomplishing that. Unfortunately, the wisdom teeth consult isn’t even until July, which means actual extraction won’t be until August at the earliest, but whatever, I’m making moves!

I’ve got another busy weekend on tap. Tomorrow I have not one, not two, but THREE events to attend: a housewarming party, a birthday party, and a going away party. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE seeing my friends and doing fun things, but I only have so much bandwidth. I really need some quiet down time! Hopefully I can just chill out tomorrow morning to brace myself for the onslaught of socialization.

I received the audition materials for my Fun Home audition. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t freaked out a bit. God bless them for providing us with the scene and song cut, because I haven’t had to pick and prepare my own audition pieces in a looooong time. It’s still scary because I’ve been spoiled rotten by my local community theatre group that very kindly and patiently teaches the songs to everyone workshop style before the auditions. I’m pretty much on my own for this. I have the soundtrack and I know the plot of the show, but AAAAAHHHHHHHH. I’m trying to remain calm and just DO THE WORK. I have another whole week to really dive into the audition pieces and try to put together some semblance of a decent audition.

I may be taking a super quick, last-minute trip to San Francisco. Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while may remember that back in 2014, I took a quick trip to SF over 4th of July weekend. My friend Krissy’s 30th birthday is June 25, and she had been talking about a big birthday shindig, but due to the insane nature of her work she wasn’t able to plan anything formal, and I thought the trip wasn’t happening. But we talked this week, and she told me how much it would mean to her for me to come. I’m cleared to take the time off work and rehearsal, I’m just waiting to hear back from Krissy if the flights I found will work with her schedule, and then I’ll be booking. Aaaah! It’s a bit expensive to book a flight three weeks out, but I figure you can’t put a price on friendship and adventure.

What’s the most adult-y thing you’ve done lately?
