Mommies aren't allowed to get sick.

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.

It's very difficult to think about anything when your tooth hurts. I had a wisdom tooth pulled last year and had something happen after called " dry socket " when the bone didn't close up and the nerve was exposed for weeks. There's nothing that can be done but to pack the hole up with cloves ( totally takes the pain away! ) and wait.
Have you bought some clove oil? Honestly, it's like, 3 bucks and works like a dream. Google it. It's true!
I hope you feel better soon, sweetie pie!

Tooth pain and ear pain are the worst. It's like you have a fixed amount of bandwidth, and tooth pain uses up ALL OF IT - which leaves none for kids and husbands or the cashier at the grocery store. I am a raging lunatic hose beast when my teeth hurt. I completely feel your pain.

I hope you are feeling better super soon!

Oh my, you had a rough Easter weekend. I am so sorry! Hopefully the medication and swelling will go down soon so that you are feeling back to your spunky self.

Sorry about the Ebay dresses. Maybe you can alter the one to flatter you a little more and cleavage isn't so bad for a date night dress. Try them on again next week, maybe they will grow on you!

Yeah for hubby making dinner, my hubbys idea of making dinner is "lets go to Firehouse Subs". Eh, my sub was delish at least.

Totally L-O-V-E the dress and colors! Think happy thoughts (I have the strange feeling someone I know told me last week to stay positive... hehehe) and can't wait to see you Saturday!

Oh, I hope you feel better soon! And definitely try on the dresses again when you do. (Maybe it was the pain talking.) That totally sucks that you don't like them. Especially after expecting them to be great. Expectations bite!

Thought I'd let you know that we had our super-duper-intense ultrasound today on the baby to check for any and all problems and everything looks great! :)

And the Old Navy dress for your daughter is adorable!
