One week down~~

Well, I've made it a week already! Last week at this time I was not a "happy camper" and now a week later here I am blogging! Don't get me wrong I'm not saying it's been an easy week but at least I now can see where this actually will get better! I've had my ups and downs all week~~physically and mentally. I guess I just wasn't prepared to feel as bad as I did. I thought what's the big deal?? Get a few teeth pulled, kick back and relax, catch up on some xmas knitting! Was I ever naive! I didn't feel like doing a darn thing! Xmas knitting has totally been crossed off the list for this year!
So if I don't have any knitting to write about what's there to say?? hmm, not much ~~
Not napping anymore I'm happy to say and I managed to stay awake all evening yesterday and watch TV with KK and Sophie! I must say that Sophie is enjoying this the most~~all this laying around and she's right there with me!
We may have a white Christmas this year. We had snow whiz through yesterday and last night but today the sun was shining~~cold but pretty! I should get outside tomorrow if it's sunny and get a picture of the pond~~Kk hasn't taken the filter out yet and the bubble-er is half frozen~~looks weird. Have to get that out before it freezes completely.
Amazon was really annoying the hell outta me tonight~~I kept trying to sign into my account and couldn't. Then it tells you it's sending you an email to reset your account~~I was waiting and waiting~~gave up and went upstairs to find something to nibble on(haha, nibble on yeah,right~no nibbling for me) I meant smush up. I'm a bit tired of this soft diet~
Anyway when I got back I was able to reset my account and go shopping! I wanted to read Hugh Laurie's (House) book but when KK went to get it for me at Barnes and Noble they said it was out of print and they couldn't get it. There it was right on Amazon just waiting for me to order it!
So I did! Present for me!
While I was straightening up earlier I was glancing at one of my knitting bags and there right on top is my Weekend Sweater~~I could vaguely hear it calling out to me. I ignored it but it's been on my mind ever since~~it's coming out so good and it's really cold now so I could be wearing it~~maybe I should take it out and look at it?? Maybe that's all it would take?? I'll think on it~~
I wanted to thank everyone that's been leaving comments~~I love getting them and read them all. I have to see if there's a setting here someplace so I can respond individually.
Sorry this post is kind of all over the place but that's the way my mind is working these days~~it's the drugs~on that note I'm
Off to eat

Hell Week!!

Before I tell you why it's been "hell week" I want to say that I hope all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving had a wonderful day! We enjoyed our day at dd's and certainly ate way more than we needed too! I'm glad that we did because the next day was the beginning of~~"hell week" for me!
I spent Friday decorating and putting up the tree. Made a nice dinner and while eating managed to break my two front teeth! Granted they were part of a bridge but the fact is I was missing two teeth! Luckily I didn't swallow them! gross~~ Now remember this is Friday night of a holiday weekend~~no way were these getting fixed before Monday! Let's just say that it was an interesting couple of days! I'm not worried thinking that Monday morning I'll pop into the dentists and get these repaired~right?? No~~not happening~~can't be fixed and the other center two are loose! They need to come out! So, after what seemed like hundreds of x-rays and much gagging it was determined that I had bone loss since the bridge was made and another one would not be an option!
I won't go into all the gory details but first thing Tuesday morning I was having major oral surgery! 13 extractions and three hours later I was on my way home!
I've spent the week with ice packs for swelling(which didn't work) taking drugs for pain, and trying to figure out what I can eat! By the end of day one I looked as though I had chipmunks for close relatives! Who knew that skin could stretch that much? It would have been a great look for Halloween!
Now eating is a whole new experience! Chewing is not an option yet~~so we're thinking mushy baby food consistency here. I've already had enough applesauce to last me a life time. Still liking that chocolate pudding tho! KK and I went out for a bit today and we literally strolled up and down all the food isles at the grocery store! Now if you knew me you'd know that it's odd for me to even go to the grocery store let along check all the isles! Kk does most of the shopping ~~for some odd reason he likes it~~I always tell him his hobby is food shopping!
I finally found a few things so I have a bit of variety until I can eat normal~~which they tell me will probably be weeks.
One thing I really wanted that I used to enjoy is Cream of Rice~~no luck ~~do they even still make it?? Anyone know?
I settled for some flavored oatmeal,pudding,mac&cheese,cup of soup, canned soup, yams,instant potatoes. We stopped at the market and I picked up some bananas that I can mush up. Sounds appetizing,huh? Picked some flavored drinks~~seems I'm more thirsty. Something weird about this ~~coffee has lost it's appeal for some odd reason! I loved my coffee but this whole week I only had about a cup when Heather came over to visit yesterday! It's not that I didn't think about it. Earlier in the week I made two fresh pots only to dump it down the drain!
The positive side of this is my stomach hasn't felt this good in months! hmmm, could it be sending me a message??
Needless to say I lost the whole week of knitting time. It's what??? three weeks before xmas?? Really not a good time for this. They said I'll feel better each day--my only hope is that I can stay awake for an entire day so I can work on something! I've already decided that I won't worry about doing everything I originally planned on. I'll be satisfied to get the couple main things finished.
I received a wonderful package from my swap partner Maggan from Sweden this past week. It was the bright spot of the week! A beautiful soft variegated brown Opal sock yarn~~a perfect color for me. Candy,stitch markers,key chain,map of her area,Tea, ~~a great swap!
Well it seems I'm tired so ~
Off to rest
