Summing it Up...

Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Monday, Monday...


How is everyone today? It's a sunny, blue-skied Monday in North eastern Indiana.
The wind whipped around this weekend, making all my top heavy seven foot high hollyhocks lay down and bow, so bought a huge bag of bungee cords to tie them upright again. Our neighbors began a roofing project just a tad before 8 a.m., and I went to the dentist to have a wisdom tooth removed from my head.

It came right out, that is after I gagged every time the dentist came near me with utensils, then ended up vomiting in the bathroom sink. Nerves I guess. The tooth came out easily, and he didn't even charge me the full amount because it was so simple for him. (Hey, I can be accommodating...I even told him while gagging that I would try not to throw up on him.) Now, nine hours later, I'm feeling some discomfort, like a jaw punch. Jim says, "Oh, you were worried enough, I didn't want to tell you about that."

As penance, I sent him downtown, to go through drive-through and bring home a chocolate shake to eat with a spoon! I wrapped chicken drumsticks with bacon and oven roasted them earlier for his lunch, while still numbed, and he enjoyed them.
He'll fend for himself for supper.

Oh, sweetie, been there done that about 2 months ago. My heart goes out to you. Not so much for the pain but for the nerves and worrying and then bam it's over and when you relax, all heck breaks loose. Sick ain't the word for it. But we are woman hear us roar, we will survive.
The chicken wrapped in bacon sounds yummy and so does the chocolate malt.
Hope you get to feeling better soon.

Ouch! so sorry to hear about your dental dilemma. I used to be a Registered Dental Assistant and worked as a surgery assistant for years for two oral surgeons. So I know what you are going through. Use ice off and on for 20 minutes at a time for the first 24 hours. Then use heat off and on for a day or two. No straws and no sucking and no rinsing out your mouth. You don't want a dry socket. eww..

Your chicken sounds yummy and it is making me hungry!

Get better soon,
becky

Glad all went well, but you definitely need to follow up with some chocolate.

Your blog looks great.

Well you poor thing! Teeth getting pulled is just awful. Really, why do they call them wisdom teeth, they are pretty silly teeth if you ask me. Way back there in the jaw, up to no good.

Keep eating those shakes! Try one of the new McD's iced coffees, too!!! They're good!

Yeech! Had the wisdom teeth done when I was in high school and college and decided that the recovery is the best torture known to man. Glad it went reasonably well and hopefully they gave you lots of nice drugs to get through the ordeal. Tell Jim he is one lucky puppy to have a wife who prepared a meal before the event!

And if I have to come down there Jim ( is he shaking yet susan?) I may load up my little Susan (and the Corgis too...we'll really get him...giggle) and we'll drive our little selves down to Texas....we'll party in our Corgi socks and cowgirl boots like we never partied before!

I'm winnin me a FLAIL over at Penniwigs...and I'm gonna learn how to use it! Giggle! Susan...I know it hurts to giggle with a tooth-less ache.....JIM!!!!!! GET HER SOME ICE!!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about the tooth - sounds like that was a pain in the butt.

ClassyChassy said...

So glad you liked your 'runner-up' prize! Corgis in the mail always cheer ME up - maybe after a tooth extraction it would help better than chocolate....??

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...
