What I've Been Up To

In case you were wondering, or if you actually come here to read what's going on in my life, here's an update:

I have a dry socket - after weeks of dealing with this abcessed molar, then two oral surgeries, the latter one being the most painful thing I've ever felt in my life (I was sitting there actually thinking that childbirth HAD to be easier than having a guy yank a nerve root out of your face while you're not quite numbed up), now I have a dry socket. And the thing is, the pain meds I'm on make me loooooopy. We're talking dizzy, slurred speech, she should not be driving loopy. So I haven't been taking more than one a day. But I've had a few days off work, and I'm bored out of my skull. Today, while I was resting, my boss called me and told me to take tomorrow off too. "But I'm bored, and working in pain might actually be more fun for me than trying to find things to do here at home" I wanted to tell her. I'm not very good at staying still.

Speaking of home, great update. My room is finally put back together. Well almost. The bedroom is in great shape, and the new ceiling sheds so much more light in there than the old one. I have put everything back, dusted and redusted till my sinuses went on strike, and the last thing left to do is organize my scrapbook supplies to make room for them in study closet. Easier said then done, but hey, who has two days off work?? Seriously though, the room looks great, clean and organized, not at all like me! More like K, but less country. Do you think I can keep it this way till June 15th? Should we get a pool going?

And I had a great time with the Johnson's this weekend. I couldn't ask for more in their love and friendship. They bless me so much. Grandma Jeanne was a sweetheart, and while I was standing in the kitchen, she came and put her arm around me and thanked me for being so generous and so loving towards the kids. How could I not just love them? Sadly though, I didn't have my camera this birthday, and so I didn't get any pictures of Miss Ana Grace and her Princess themed party. But one of my favorite quotes of the evening was this: Josiah puts his arm around Ana, as they are sitting together eating their cake at the table, and tells her "Ana, this is your best birthday ever. I love you. Can you watch the store for a minute?" What store??

So, all in all, other than having a few days off work (I hate not working), this is all that's new with me. Sionara, Ciao and Good Night!

This whole experience is going to give you a dentist complex. I hope you start feeling better soon!

And you don't have to worry about keeping it clean for my arrival. I won't be moving back in immediately anyway!

Eli asked me yesterday why I love 'kiddos' so much. I told her how could I not! Being here for a week has really uplifted my soul. I missed young children. They have been a little dose of Hope for me.
