When it is not what you thought it was...

The "sinus infection", was actually an abscessed tooth! Go team! This is what I get from growing up in a non-fluoridated community, and having an alcoholic dentist for the first 17 years of life.

So what does one want to do over the holidays? They want to drop hundreds of dollars on a root canal! The root canal is scheduled for Monday 10:15am. The Dentist told me, these things are not as painful as they used to be, and I should be able to go back to work right after....who knew? Root canal, sounds painful!

OK, so this morning, I dropped off presents for teachers, invites to party, paperwork for teachers to fill out, kids off, went to work, left work, went to Dentist, stopped at pharmacy, went back to work, left work, picked up kids from school, and picked up the drugs at the pharmacy...that is my day in a nutshell. MOTION. Throw a tooth, actually an entire head that hurts like the devil, and well it was a long day.

In good news, no more swooshing whiskey in my mouth, I have vicodin for the evenings, and more antibiotic to take 4 times a day..holy crud.

Amazing how much a tooth can hurt your entire body, and how bad it can make your breath. Ick.

In other news I am disappointed in the YMCA's everything for kids here, and I made a decision to pull the kids from the swim lessons, and gymnastics there. It is very expensive, and might be worth it, if I actually had time to use the gym, but sadly I do not, and do not see my time for excercise increasing anytime soon. So, I am going to put them in a private swim school, and music lessons. I must go explore these options in the next week or so, as the music school is enrolling now.

Let me see, what else. I am still packed from the visit to my Father's home 3 days ago. I am getting this project done in the next 36 hours, even if it kills me.

I love when I cook to much food, and freeze it fro a meal later, it is a time and money saver!

Oh and the dog chewed up my most awesome pair of camel colored slingbacks....my own fault, I should have put them in my shoe bag...

I am so sorry to hear about your abscess! I know how much those hurt, but at least you're getting it taken care of now. Once again, I don't envy your busy schedule, and I honestly don't know how you do it...

You might want to read my root-canal story from a couple of years ago. It was a blast. Here's the link: http://unclesamatemybaby.blogspot.com/2007/11/good-teeth.html
