5 for Friday 6.19.15

Hi, friends!  It's time for another Five for Friday!  Thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting again! 

Mr. Wheeler and I celebrated 9 years of marriage on Wednesday and his parents got us bikes!  We've been riding fools ever since!  Who knew bike riding could be so fun?!!?!

I updated ALL of my Writing Workshop covers!  They were due, as these are the first products I ever created in my TpT shop years ago.  I like how they turned out.  To view the Writing products I have, click the cover.
Speaking of TpT, I've been working on finishing my Growing Guided Reading Bundle.  I just finished up Level E.  I have 3 units to go!  If you are interested in checking this phenomenal resource out, click the cover!  *Units can be purchased individually if you don't want to get the bundle.*

So this one counts for 4 AND 5 because it's SUCH A BIG DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Long story short: I was supposted to get my braces off 5 weeks ago, but when I got there, the dr. said they "weren't quite ready" and he wanted me to wear a different rubber band combo.  So I was sad but I understood and left, with my new appointment being 3 weeks later.  It was for the day after the Nashville Blogger Meet-up.  I set my alarm for 7:00 am {appointment at 8:00}, got up and showered, and hit the road for the removal.  About halfway into my drive, the phone rang.  Here's how the convo. went down:

RECEPTIONIST: "Megan, this is dr. ___ office.  You missed your appointment."

ME: "What?  I am on my way right now.  It's 7:45."

RECEPTIONIST: "No, it's actually 8:45.  Your appointment was at 8:00."

ME: {Super confused at this point} "OMG.  My phone never switched back to Ohio time after our trip to Nashville.  What the heck?!"

RECEPTIONIST:  "I am so sorry.  We will have to re-schedule.  Unfortunately we can't get you in until July."

ME: {sobbing}  "How is this possible?!  Not until July?"

RECEPTIONIST: "Yes, no one ever cancels removals.  I am so sorry.  I will call you if anything would come up but it's highly unlikely."

ME: {still sobbing}.  "OK, thank you.  Goodbye."

So I drive home, hysterical, wake Mr. Wheeler up, and tell him what happened.  Seriously, Iphone? What's the deal?  Crushed.   Sidebar:  This is the 4th time I've had braces.  I am destined to have crooked teeth.  I am over all of the braces, retainers, rubber bands, etc, etc, etc!

A week later and I was ok with waiting until July.  It was out of my control.

Then yesterday, at 11:00 a.m.-------the phone rang.  It was the dr. office.  I KNEW IT HAD TO BE GOOD!  They had a removal cancel at 1:00 and would I take it??  DUH!  I couldn't even focus all day yesterday b/c I was so excited!  So I went, and 2 hours later, this was the end result:

Thrilled!  Have a great weekend!

I'm so glad you were able to get your braces off. It's so disappointing when you're looking forward to something and it doesn't happen. Your teeth look good!

Made with Love
