Down In The Mouth

Today, my situation calls for gentle care—in the form of berry smoothies…

a bit of light reading (luckily, my copy of Rhythm of the Family came in the mail today!)…

anything lovely from the freezer—especially if it’s loaded with peaches…very cold peaches…

my recipe organizer–for future blog post planning…

heavy-duty ice packs… (are you seeing a pattern here?)

and a big old bottle of Lortab.

Had a dental adventure to facilitate future bridge work.

Ok, ok…I had three teeth pulled, and may I just say…dude. New experience for this old bird–and believe me, if I’d have had any top secret information that they wanted, I’d have given it…gladly.

But, truth be told, I’m incredibly grateful to live in the 21st Century where we have anesthesia, antibiotics, pain killers, and anti-bacterial hand soap.

But this very minute, I’m most grateful for the never ending supply of Otter Pops…

a special, life-saving gift from…

the Tooth Fairy.

I do believe in fairies.

  1. I don’t know how you could stay awake on Lortab. It knocks me out! Hope you get feeling better soon. I love when you come to craft night. 😉

  2. Oh I’m so sorry my dear friend, but soooooo thankful you’re being able to get the work done on your teeth. Be good to yourself and enjoy the TLC from those around you. You’re so blessed to have a little army of sweet ones to give back some of the love they’ve received over the years, I know you’re in good hands.

  3. Launi,
    I am so sorry. I hope that you are better soon and feeling great. I hate having my teeth worked on, (even if I do have a great dentist!) Enjoy your frozen treats and hopefully everyday you will feel just a bit better than the day before!!

  4. Oh, I’m so sorry that you had to go have it done, but I’m also so grateful that you got to go get them taken care of! You’ll feel so much better in a couple days 🙂 Jesse just had another one of his pulled yesterday, too. Teeth are just not fun when they hurt!!! We love you!!!

  5. It does make me sleepy–but I try to resist…for the most part. I do love to come to craft night too–it’s so fun to just sit and talk. One of these days, we’ll get to the craft part. haha.

  6. Oh, now wait–does that mean that you’re NOT coming to bring me a milk shake?! Wow…I totally made us sound waaay too competent. rats…

  7. Yeah, I’m a big fan of Big Stick popsicles and April brought those right over, and Lyndi made me some Chicken w/ Rice soup. SOMEBODY must have raised those cute girls properly. :}

  8. DANG GIRL! You need to WARN a person! I hope you’re doing ok! So what OTHER treats would you like us to bring over? You name it, we’ll bring it!
    Love ya!

  9. THAT’S what I need…my sister. :} Closest thing to my mom that I’m ever going to get–huh? Cold is all that really feels good right now. But you should come see me.
