I'm alive. Somewhat. Sore throat, slight fever. And I have a cough that is trying to kill me, one ab aching spasm at a time. Normally if I get sick, it's a 24 hour thang, and it's over and done with. This has been going on for a week. That, combined with the dental work (4 crowns) I had last Wednesday, and I think my body is just trying to heal too many things at once.
One of my temporary crowns came loose on Saturday night. Hubby went to the store and got me some denture cream until I was seen this morning to reattach it. So I was then dealing with tooth sensitivity to temperature. Seriously, in tears. It hurt so bad to eat or drink anything that wasn't the exact same temperature as my mouth. I had it reattached this morning, and my pain meds refilled, so I'm doing somewhat better. As long as I take a pill every 4 hours on the dot, I'm good. Anything more than that, and yowzas. Ended up taking a 3 hour nap yesterday, just to sleep off some of the pain. Thankfully my hubby put the parrot in the backyard so the sound of "Hello! Come here!" wouldn't wake me up, and the girls were all quiet too. It was just hard, that morning. It's Easter, you want to be excited for your kids, and run around with them and be silly and hunt for eggs. But if you've ever had a tooth ache, you know how it just totally consumes anything that you try to do. It's like it doesn't want your attention on anything else. Geez, selfish.
I'm in such a funk today. Usually if I'm feeling blah like this, I try and go for a jog. Clear my mind, listen to some music. But with the toothache, sickness, and weather, it's not really working in my favor.
We have family pictures scheduled for the end of May with one of my favorite photographers. I'm basing our outfits around a dress I got for Ava from Old Navy. Adorable, right?
I ordered two dresses for myself off of Ebay. Got them both in today. Completely convinced that I look three months pregnant in one dress, and my boobs are falling out of the other dress. And last I checked, cleavage and boobage aren't appropriate in family pictures. So now I think I just wasted $50. I'm sure my mood isn't helping. I'm going to think on it for a day or two. If I still hate how I look in them, be prepared to see a post about how to jazz up a plain tank top. I'd normally just stick some fabric flowers on one side of the neckline, but I'm doing that for my middle daughters shirt. I want to be cohesive in the pics, not matchy matchy, ya know?
So thank you, dear friends, for letting me check in and vent. Hubby is making dinner right now, and I have a feeling that an early bedtime is in my future tonight. Stayed up until midnight last night catching up on old episodes of Parenthood. That 3 hour nap threw off my bedtime.
Send some happy, feel better, no toothache vibes my way, wouldja? I'm usually such a positive person, I hate feeling so blah.
