OOPS! with bonus photo

OOPS! Yesterday I totally spaced off Dakota's dentist appointment. It was at 3:30 and around 5:30 at soccer practice I'm talking to Dakota and suddenly think "Oh, shit! The dentist!" I'm sick to my stomach thinking about this because this dentist always runs on time. If he respects my time, I should respect his, right? His office even called me on Tuesday to remind me. I was like "Oh sure, it's on the calendar. I won't forget." But I did! I called this morning to but they are closed for the next week. I'm trying not to take that personally. lol Now I will worry about this for the next week until I can get ahold of them, swallow my bitter pill, and reschedule. Anyway, even though today isn't busy in itself, this whole thing makes me feel totally scatter-brained. I mean, I can't even keep track of the only lousy appointment all week, what kind of mother does that make me? My kid is walking around with holes in his teeth and it's all my fault! There's a tiny rational part of my brain that recognizes this reasoning as ludicrous but that part isn't in control right now. So it ends up being a bymyfingernails day.

One of the best things about living on the west coast is the sunsets over the water. I mean, who really wants to get up at the crack of dawn to watch a sunrise on the east coast. Here, we frequently catch the sunset serendipitously and it's enjoyed all the more for being unplanned. This was taken at Shore Acres in southern Oregon last November.
