WHEW! It's almost over with...I still have some numbness in my chin and lower cheek. Weird! I ended up having a root canal on the tooth Wednesday. I decided to do the RC, since I didn't need a crown on it, only a filling. So, that saved well over $600. So instead of the intial $1502 *with 15% discount*, it will be be $683.....????!!??? I agonized over the decision of pulling vs. root canal---that was almost as bad as the pain! I still have to go back Monday for the permanent filling to be put in.
Here's a few pictures of some cards I had made before Valentines Day, and when I worked last.
I'm still on the hunt for organizing solutions to my craft room for the scrapbooking section. I may run to Walmart and Home Depot tomorrow or Tuesday and get SOMETHING that will work.
I'm off to work on the doily from hell.....this is the hardest project I've come across in a long time.

Happy Valentine's Day


...still suffering

It's not that I'm a huge baby or anything, but, geez! I am ready for this tooth business to be done with!
I had the dentist office call me in a prescription for some pain meds *Tylenol 3*, I don't like that other stuff that makes me sick to my stomach*. It was cutting it, so, I was taking that and an 800mg Ibuprofen about every 2 1/2 - 4 hours. Pain and misery! The pain was up to 9.5 (with 10 being full body pain, so, it was bad). My face looked like a baseball was in my mouth by Thursday morning. I was dreading what he might do at the appointment. Right as the assistant was looking at me, she said these kind of infections are bad. Within the past 5 years, the dental industry is seeing lots of people dying from them because they get 'SupeBugs' that the antibiotics won't work on. I was left in the room alone freaking out! I hadn't been taking my blood pressure meds for 2 days and my heart seemed to be pounding. The dentist told me the tooth had DIED! AND, that he would have to get that infection drilling into the tooth! ACK I was afraid that was what he would want to do, but, it wasn't that bad. (Have to go back later, and I've decided I'll have it pulled. It's loose and the bone is already deteriorating. It's a small molar, and, the weird thing is that I have no fillings or cavities on that side.)
Now, the pain comes and goes and the swelling, too. It started up again a few minutes ago, so, I'm typing with a big icepack on my face!
I did go work at the scrapbook store from 2-5 today. I knew it would be a slow, easy day. I had debated about it in the morning, but, by noon, I was feeling pretty good.
I work tomorrow from 10-4. I hope it's a good day and I can make it. The owner is having a big celebration/going away for her husband and a bunch of military people. Her husband is deploying in a week or two. (They haven't even given him an acccurate date!?)
So, that's my catch-up.

Toothache.... hurts! I stopped at the dentist office after my PAP test (NOT fair! Two of the most YUCKY things in ONE day!!!) to see about an appointment. I have 'something' going on in my mouth and it's not going away. They called a prescription in for some antibiotics and told me of a 'concoction' for pain to get over-the-counter. I can't get in to the dentist until 9 a.m. Thursday. I think I'll be ok til then, but, not much longer than that. We don't have dental insurance, so, this will be interesting. We had planned on doing some dentist stuff in Mexico, but, I'm a bit leary of some of that stuff done there, just in case of a reaction or something... Yesterday was the day we could have added dental onto hubbys insurance, too.............CRAP!
It's a nice snowy, COLD day. I love it, it fits how I feel, too! LOL Hubby came home at noon. They shut the job down. He's in taking a nap now...awwww
I did take a few minutes to meet my friend, Ruthie, for a few minutes. I had another Valentine's giftbag for her. I love spoiling her! And, boy, did she spoil ME today! She filled my bag with some yummy chocolate cherries (primo!), some Valentine's stickers, the sweetest card, AND, a Hoops and Yoyo card---I LOVE those guys! But, the bestest part is she also got me a DVD of 'The Secret Life of Bees'!!!! What a sweetie-pie she is!!! I may curl up with my laptop and watch that later.
I'm out the door for my prescription now. I AM IN MAJOR PAIN...

Love these colors!

Wednesday, #1 son and I had to go to Globe for 'business'. When I took him back to his place, the sun was just setting over this pond. See the geese? By the time I had driven around it, it was practically covered with duck and geese!
I love it!

Hubby is working again today. I put a big ole pork roast in the crockpot with garlic and carrots. I can smell it already...yummy. He'll be happy when he walks in the door tonight. I'm also making some brownie bites for a little dessert.

I finished up a red shawl for my friend, and forgot to get a picture before I gave it to her, when we met for breakfast on Tuesday. I mailed off the little blue star baby afghan for my cousins new grandson. I also participated in a dishcloth swap. I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my puffy.

The weatherman is telling us to expect rain and/or up to 20" of snow, down to 2500'.
Well, we'll see!

Have a fun day and count your blessings!

This is one of my favorite AVON watches! I started 'collecting' watches 2 years ago.
My addiction with watches started when I went to an AVON Honor Society luncheon. I admired one of the girls pearl watches and she said "That? It's AVON...I have 45 watches!" LOL I guess I thought it was OK to start my collection of watches! hehehe
They ARE a great accessory, functional and I get them at a discount, so.....
I have about 20 at this point. I try to contol it, and sometimes I do real good.....
Those are the times I have to COLLECT flipflops instead! hehehehe
Check out my AVON site for your own collection. If you don't collect....I CAN HELP! ROFL!

Boring, I know...But, I was sweating it, wondering what I would find and if I would have to CHEAT! ROFL

Have fun!
