Chocolate Cake bigger than your head and other December treats…

This post brought to you by CVS. All opinions are 100% mine.

You know, time flies the older you get.  The month of December was a total blur.  We did go on vacation and frankly, when I go on vacation, Devil Suzy always comes too. It took her no time to locate every restaurant in Western Montana that has cheesecake for dessert. I have to tell you that I had cheesecake every single night. In fact, I would go so far as to order a light meal so that I would have plenty of room for cheesecake. There are important things in life after all.

My list of favorite things? Cheesecake, ice cream and my husband. In that order. Ha!  And speaking of my husband, he wasn’t much help either. We got stranded in the Denver airport on the way home for about 7 hours waiting on a connection, so we had some time to kill. Naturally, we ended up in a restaurant.

Hey, ya gotta eat, you know! Certainly wouldn’t want to whittle away to nothing. And apparently he had traveled with his Devil too, because he goes and orders a piece of chocolate cake that is bigger than his head. Don’t believe me?

Don’t worry. I didn’t let him tackle that monstrosity by himself. I made the sacrifice and helped him eat it. That’s what being married means. It’s all a little give and take, you know. Ha!

Yep, I ate my share of cheesecake this month, but unfortunately, ice cream has been knocked off my list lately due to suddenly sensitive teeth.  I’m not sure if that is from getting older or not, but the teeth aren’t liking that extreme cold anymore.  So I had to google it because google knows everything, and here are the main causes of tooth sensitivity:

  • Gum recession due to age or improper tooth brushing
  • Acidic beverages (such as soda) that cause enamel erosion and dentin exposure
  • Tooth grinding
  • Brushing with a very abrasive toothpaste, brushing incorrectly and/or brushing more than three times a day
  • Gum disease, which can result in gum recession
  • A chipped or fractured tooth may expose the dentin

I’m thinking it is all the diet soda that I drink.  Oh, and it could be the age thing too… The husband has had this problem for years and has always used Sensodyne®.  You see, his list of favorite things is ice cream, his motorcycle and me – in that order.  So he had to come up with a solution.

Sensodyne® Repair and Protect can actually heal your sensitive teeth, repairing the protective layer and preventing pain.  Sensodyne® Repair & Protect builds a repairing layer over the sensitive areas, to protect against pain.  The active ingredient is clinically proven effective, lasting relief from the twinges of sensitivity and offers everyday cavity protection with fluoride.

I’m going to go to CVS this weekend and pick up my own personal tube of Sensodyne® Repair and Protect.  Because ice cream and me? We have kind of a relationship going.

The hubby understands.
