Ever Have One Of Those Days At Work? Part 2 of 2

*If you missed the previous post, please scroll down and read it 1st, so that you will fully understand what a crazy, wacky, insane, nutty, irrational, kooky, lying, psychotic bee-atch I am writing about!
The dentist ended up calling and speaking to mom. She answered every little question mom could think of. If this post were about rational people, this would be the end of my little story. After all, you wouldn't take your child back to a dentist you don't trust, right? I wouldn't even bring my dogs to a veterinarian if I wasn't 100% comfortable with them. But, as noted above, this particular post is about a *!#%^, so of course the fun kept going. Mom brought the child back for the next appointment. Our office had had enough nonsense, so we made it a point to be extra clear about everything. An impression would be taken for an appliance, which we would receive back from the lab in about 2 weeks, and the copay would be $79. It seemed to sink in. The assistant came up after taking the impression to let mom know when to schedule the next appointment. Mom was baffled by the concept of the appliance (it all supposedly made sense to her 20 minutes ago!) The assistant resorted to DRAWING MOM A PICTURE detailing the appliance/where it goes/how it works/why it's needed and even told her about how she'd had the same thing when she was a child. Mom was still confused and said she felt pressured and didn't think she wanted the appliance any more. 

Then why the hell did you come into our office today to have an impression made?!?

Wrapping up my story, mom would only pay $73, not $79, because "they told me it was $73" (I heard them tell you $79! It's right there on the chart. $79! $79! $79!!!) I told mom to have a seat in the waiting room and her child will be right out, to which she replied, "where is my child?". Before leaving, she told me that our office is "shady". We're shady?!? Despite all this, she says she will be returning in 2 weeks and again this summer for her child's check-up. 


Here's an old group photo from when my boss threw me a surprise bridal shower. Do any of these ladies look "shady"? NO!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

These Amerisleep reviews are NOT a sponsored post. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my Liberty Bed for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.

*6/17/17 Update*  Since publishing my original review, Amerisleep has started a new referral program. If you order through my link (THANK YOU!) you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! There is almost always a promo code available on the Amerisleep website, so if there's not a good deal today, check back tomorrow.
If you buy through my link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus that I can use toward purchasing other memory foam products for the house we're about to break ground on hopefully any day nowwe're finally building (!!!), so placing your order through my link would be so helpful, especially as we're a bit (a lot!) over budget already. What's a better compliment than plannin…

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:

Dream Home Dreaming

We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?


The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
