Just. Ow. I feel like I've been smacked around pretty good, but at least my bleeding's stopped. Considering it was making me sick yesterday, that's not anything small.
Despite the fact that I was not a good girl and had a massive crying jag after the procedure (I blame the sedatives and bleeding, two of my least favorite things), I decided to go ahead and use my birthday money on yarn. Hey, my face is stretched out of shape and bloaty, I feel like I've gone a round or two with Tyson and I wanted new yarn. I think that's a good enough set of reasons!
By the way, this is going to be a huge, long, photo-intense post, so I'm going to put a jump break in here:
OK, now we're done with the jump break, here's my new toys:
Right before I went to the yarn shop, I went to the store:
Luscious Gerber Vanilla Custard Pudding with Bananas aside, I wanted to make myself some mashed potatoes. I mean, it's got to be more solid than baby food, yogurt or ice cream and all I've been able to eat since the midnight between Wednesday and Thursday has been yogurt, ice cream and baby food. OK, maybe the ice cream is pretty darn solid, but you can only eat so much ice cream before you get tired of it. I made a trip to the grocery to get potatoes, leeks, onions, chicken broth and some sour cream.
Then I started up with the doctorin':
Kitchen Basics, but again, pick your own poison.
(And the green tinge in this photo is from a suncatcher in our kitchen window. It doesn't look like mold in the pot, believe me.)
It was so good, in fact, that I went crazy and ate two bowls. I'm having trouble choking down baby food, but I could take in two whole bowls of this meal mash.
And yes, I'm schlubbing around there in that photo. I just had four teeth pulled/drilled out of my head. I feel like crap.
I'm going to go pet my yarn and maybe have a little more baby food for dessert and then drink some water. I hope it gets me through the rest of the day which is, according to the dentist, the worst of the recovery.
From his lips to God's ears, is all I have to say.
