Still hiding...

...and not quite wanting to face the fallout yet...and life goes on...
My daughter's first day of 7th grade went well (sigh of relief).  Last year was so hard on her, I really hope that this year will be better.  You know, middle school was extremely difficult when I went through it.  It's almost like I'm reliving those years now with my daughter.  I just hope I can be a help to her and not a hindrance...
I went back to the dentist today...I called them on my way out of work.
Me: "Hi, this is Michelle, I was just calling to make sure I had an appointment today."
Them: "Yes, I have you down for 2:20."
Me: "And do you have nitrous ready for me today?"
It was very funny when I got there...everyone apparently now knows about last week's debacle and so were VERY solicitous to me this time...they outfitted me right away with sunglasses, headphones, and nitrous, and three different people were hovering over me..."Are you still okay?  Are you still okay?"...
It's like I have my eyes shut as I'm forcing myself forward.  Just a little bit further...then I'll stop hiding.
