#11: Go to the dentist

I have successfully completed #11: go to the dentist. While I've had dental insurance for the past 3 years, I have avoided the dentist since I was about 18 or 19. I'm fortunate and haven't had any major problems or pain in the past 8 years, but I knew it was time to face my fears and go. The initial appointment was much easier than anticipated, although I still had some bad news: I have some cavities and all 4 of my wisdom teeth are impacted. The good news, however, is that my gums are fantastic! I need to look on the bright side of things with all the upcoming dental work I'm facing. At least it's one more thing crossed of my list!

#67: Find a same species friend for Frida

When I originally wrote this item on my list, I was generally thinking this would entail a friend or acquaintance who had a dog that Frida got along with, who we could meet up with at the park for doggy play dates.  A few months ago, my sister and brother in law began fostering Zelda, a french bulldog, and one day we introduced her to Frida.

From the first time they met, they were thick as thieves. To be honest, I'm not sure there's a dog out there that Zelda doesn't get along with; Frida, however, has a harder time making doggy friends so we were very excited they got along.  It was a little sad, though, knowing she was just being fostered and would eventually be adopted into a permanent home. Well, we solved that problem....
