The Deed is Done...and I was a big sissy

Okay, okay...everyone was right. IT WASN'T THAT BAD!

I had my wisdom teeth pulled Saturday morning. I was pretty calm and under control. It was reminiscent of the tummy tuck since they had to give me an IV to knock me out, although I didn't have oxygen during the tummy tuck. I really expected to look like holy hell afterwards, since Andy did...but I woke up pretty nicely and slept on the way to Target to get my meds filled. I planned on waiting in the car, but I felt fine enough to go inside, so we grabbed some yummy soft things to eat while we waited. I fell asleep on the way home and then when i got home, I fell asleep for a while. But I was up around 2pm, ready to eat something. Now it's Monday at lunchtime and I really don't have too much pain....I didn't the whole time. So I guess I was a wreck for nothing. My cheeks didn't even swell up. I don't look like anything even happened.

Unfortunately, the kids ended up getting today off because it's -22 degrees. That's not even that cold, so I don't understand what the deal is? It started as a two hour delay,which was fine with me since I'm off today and tomorrow and I could sleep later before getting them off for school. But then they canceled it altogether. Now I have to decide if I am going to keep Andy company tonight for the "MANDATORY" FRG meeting. They make it mandatory every time, but so far, its only like 10 people and us that get suckered in to believing that. I try to tell Andy that no one else believes it's mandatory but he insists we have to go. So I am going to end up having to go again tonight, which sucks because Andy only has 4 more weeks of work until he leaves for recruiting school, and when he comes back, we will be clearing post to get ready to PCS (move, get the hell out of dodge, etc...) So I don't know why we have to go find out what will be happening in the unit, since we won't be here. But that's the way it is, and Andy always gets suckered in.

My weekend mostly consisted of trying to decide how to work some new aspects in to my blog (when I wasn't snoozing happily or picking stuff out of the giant holes in my mouth because I am afraid of getting infections.) As you might or might not notice, I added two pages. "Glamorous and Girly" is where I am going to hide away any discussions we have about marriage and sex, fashion and other stuff that we like to talk about. "Extracurricular Trouble" is about travel, events, etc...If you have an awesome trip and want to guest blog about it, let me know!

Other guest blog topics I would like to cover:
Sex and the Single Girl
Top 5 Things I Can't Live Without
The View from the Mother of a Soldier, Sister of a Soldier, Girlfriend of a Soldier
Questions from the New Girl on Post
Bachelorette Party Ideas

If you would like to contribute a guest post on the topics above or you have another idea, let me know.


  1. My dentist recommended me getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled. But I've been too chicken! However, after reading this, maybe I'll get it done finally. Thanks.

  2. I'm so glad your surgery went well and you feel good!! I've seen people who don't take it that well :-)

  3. Glad you came through the surgery fine. Hope the rest of the week goes well for you.

  4. Yeah I really don't think it is like it used to be, had my wisdom teeth done in the summer and yeah it was no big deal, I even ate dinner that same day. And not a bit of problems with them since.

  5. Glad everything went okay. Yay for getting through surgery.
