Your challenge, should you choose to accept it...

I did this.

It was freezing!

which is why I made a fun video.

I figured, if I had to do the uncomfortable part, I might as well get to do a fun part afterwards. :)

P.S. For those of you thinking, "Freezing? There was hardly any ice in there," it's true.  There was hardly any ice in there. because we only own two ice trays.  So the pot sat in the fridge for a long time, and let's be honest - fridges can get water pretttttty cold.


Out of it, his hair overgrown, his face cut, his robes ripped, clambered the real Neville Longbottom, who gave a roar of delight, leapt down from the mantelpiece, and yelled, "I knew you’d come!  I knew it, Harry!

August's goal check-up time!
My goals in August were to brush my teeth at night (I know, I know, you're all disgusted that that wasn't a habit before) and to floss once a day.

Here's my question:

Do you know how hard it is to reach a goal about improving your oral hygiene when you spent the first day of the month at the dentist and he told you not to change a thing about your oral hygiene because your teeth and gums are AWESOME?!

It's really really really hard.


Flossing - Yeah, I was horrible at that.
Brushing at night - Probably 50/50.  

And yet, the dentist's (and hygienist's) words are still echoing in my head, so I don't feel bad about it...
