I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a terrible flosser.
I don’t like doing it but start out with good intentions, it hurts when you do it right, I avoid doing it because it stings, the dental hygienist berates me, I once again start out with good intentions. It’s a vicious cycle!
But! I switched dentists a couple of years ago (to join the “family dentist” — the guy everybody in Darling Husband’s family uses), and I really love the new place. My dentist is awesome (and always compliments my smile like whoah, which is nice), and the hygienists are actually nice, too. No more uber-bitch snide comments about my flossing (or lack thereof) but just really nice, not-pushy comments about how I know it’s important, and I really should try to do it more.
So, of course, because I love these new hygienists, I’ve really been trying to change my ways for them. On my last visit, I decided I was going to start flossing every single day — I downright promised it!
But I’ve promised that shiz before, you know, and then not done it? So I asked the hygienist to enable my success by doing two things:
The hygienist laughed, but she did both things for me. I stuck the note up on my bathroom mirror, and it really did help me remember to floss.
But … it wasn’t pretty.
I have done exactly NOTHING to the top-floor bathroom yet, because it’s a decent paint colour already (thanks, previous homeowners), although I plan to change the decor at some point. But still … it didn’t look nice to have a piece of paper stuck up on my mirror.
So with a cheapie frame from Wal-Mart, here’s how I made my (very useful) note a little bit nicer on the eyes …
|Thanks for the note, Sheryl!|
|The note now has a place of honour … next to the Q-tips!|
|It’s tucked nicely out of the way, but I can still see my little reminder!|
|It’s dull in here, but not bad. I’m in no huge rush to change things yet (still working like mad on the main floor)|
Have you ever framed something kind of dorky?
What kind of art do you have in your bathroom?
Tell me about it!
