Blech, tooth soap
I received my tooth chips from Etsy. I’ve been using them for the last 2 days. While I’m thrilled that they don’t bother my mouth, the taste is terrible. Alright so it’s not that bad, I’m getting used to it. But the first couple of times I brushed my teeth with them. Ugh it was nasty. The soap taste is slowly fading away so I’m sure I’ll be used to it by the end of the week.
I’m still waiting for my deodorant. I guess my order got lost or something. It’s supposed to be sent out tomorrow. I ordered the full size shampoo and conditioner bar in mango. I can’t wait for it to come. I love the samples I got. I ordered a tube of pixie epoxy from fyrinnae[1. speaking of fyrinnae. Kai and Ben just got home and checked the mail from yesterday. My pixie epoxy and a pretty polar bear sample were in the mail! Hooray!] and I ordered a few samples from tkb trading as well. With my limited funds I figured this might be my best bet for right now. I can’t wait to try them.
My dad called me. Well technically Jeannie called me. I haven’t talked to them in well over a year. The last time I talked to them was when she was kicking my dad out and he had called to see if he could stay with us. Later that night my dad called me back to tell me Jeannie was in the hospital. My dad had found her passed out on the floor in the kitchen with the phone off the hook. The hospital told my dad that she was severely dehydrated, mostly because of her alcohol consumption and the combination of medications she was on and not drinking water. I tried calling him to check in a couple of weeks later and someone hung up on me. At least that’s what I thought it was. I must have called close to 100 times that day, only to be hung up on. So I figured they didn’t want to speak to me. Or she didn’t want him to speak to me. With all that I was dealing with and have been dealing with. I couldn’t emotionally deal with that on top of everything else. I love my dad to death. But I can’t put my self in that position to try to call him and be hung up on. I tried calling a few more times. Kai even tried to call, and nothing. It would ring once or twice then click and hang up. So I decided to wait for my dad to contact me. But he didn’t.
Jeannie and my dad said their phone had been turned off a few times. That was probably why. I don’t know whether or not to believe them. Every time I’ve called a number that had been turned off I got some sort of warning saying this number is no longer in server, etc. I don’t know. But I’m glad they finally called. They reassured me they weren’t mad at me. They both said in the future if they call me again during a fight to tell them I’m not getting involved. I’ll try, but what am I supposed to do when my dad calls me asking if he can stay here because his wife is kicking him out? Ugh.
Funny story, well kind of. In retrospect, it’s funny. We’ve had a leak in our bathtub faucet for months and months. Well last night it got worse. By worse I mean it was like the faucet was just on. So Kai and I start messing around with it trying to figure out why it’s leaking. I couldn’t turn this one part so I asked Kai to try. So of course he turns it with no problem. All of a sudden the faucet shoots off and water is shooting into the hallway and all over the walls and flooding the floor and going EVERYWHERE. Hai we’re soaked. Fumiko starts crying and freaking out, Kai frantically runs downstairs to find the shut off for the water. I’m holding a towel over the faucet so it goes INTO the tub instead of everywhere else. Kai gets downstairs and suddenly realizes that the water shut off valve is BEHIND THE DOOR THAT CHARLIE NAILED SHUT! Ohdearuniversehelpus. So he um finally got it off and got the water shut off and came back up. My mom was laughing. It looked like a scene out of a comedy. By now Fumiko and Sushicat are in the bathroom with us trying to see what happened and playing in the water and we’re just standing there soaked.
Kai and Ben have made 2 runs to home depot now to try to fix it. The first time they apparently talked to someone who knew not what they were talking about and got them to buy replacement parts that our faucet thinger didn’t even have… So Kai spent awhile watching youtube videos and messing with it trying to get stuff to fit. Then put it back together, turned the water on only to find that it didn’t help at all. So they went back again. He just called me to let me know that they were referred to someone who actually knew what they were doing and got them the right replacement parts. Then told them that any of the new faucets they could have purchased wouldn’t have worked. Awesome. Hopefully it works this time.
I’m hungry. However eating is painful. Half of a tooth broke off into the gum, so I can only chew on the right side of my mouth. However chewing on the right side causes this horrible pain to shoot down into my lower jaw. I need to call the orthodontist and get my braces off and have my teeth fixed. I have an appointment for the 17th at NARA. Hopefully the new doctor there can help me.
