Being brave isn’t the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.
This morning I went in to remove my wisdom teeth. It wasn’t too bad but since my bottoms weren’t fully out, they were afraid of cavities and whatnot in the future. And the older you get, the more risks you have when getting them removed.
I woke up during the surgery and it was weird hearing them work on you when you’re awake. But all went well and they got it all out in one go.
When I was finally able to leave, they rolled in a wheelchair and I didn’t know so I got up and started walking. haha The lady was like “Ma’am! Ma’am!”
Mum even went and got me a milkshake from Sonic for my recovery. I’ve never been such a fan for a milkshake … until today. Such wonderfulness on my wounds.
Don’t worry. I didn’t use my straw!
I’m glad I wasn’t as swollen as I thought I’d be. Mostly my right side is swollen since it was closer to my nerve. They numb that side like crazy.
Now on to recovery of doing nothing but being lazy. I need to get out of the house. So bored. Zzzzz …
Trying this new thing where I post about Taurus personalities because I’m one and
sometimes most of the time they’re on point.
This weekend took a toll on me. I don’t think I’ve gone out in the wee hours of the next morning in that many consecutive days since college. Wednesday was spent at Sissy’s filled with dinner, Shark Tank, and video games. Thursday, which I spoke about in the last post about, was filled with St. Patrick’s celebration with Sammy. Drinking then gazing up at the moon as I recovered from the drinking. Look how gorgeous it was.
Friday was Bonnie’s birthday where we went for dinner at Wooster’s then Pete’s Piano Bar for some joyous music. Second time in a month I get to see Michelle and we were able to do our 2nd Annual Photobooth picture which makes me happy. Another photo strip to add to my collection.
Saturday morning was the Petco Adoption event which Phrolic and Cas performed at. Sadly the food truck guy was sick so a lot of things fell through and it became a big mess of an event. I felt bad that some people drove out hoping it to be a bigger even than it really was but I’m happy so many pups got adopted that day!
Amanda’s boyfriend was in town and she invited Michelle and I out with them and their friends. We went and got drinks at a bar then headed to some other bar where we literally danced the night away. I usually do the whole dancing thing in San Antonio, so it was nice getting to do so with these girls … and boys. haha I’m pretty sure Amanda’s boyfriend and friends thought I was crazy. But I do what I want!
Sunday was literally a do nothing day until dinner time came. Birthday dinner for Gordon which took way longer than we thought it would but it was nice having a chance to talk and reminisce about the past and who we use to be and who we are now. Those are always fun.
Two more days of work until the weekend though not much of a weekend to be honest. I’ll finally be taking my wisdom teeth out Thursday so while everyone is having their crawfish boils and having fun, I’ll be doing nothing but laying in bed and cuddling with Rizzo … which isn’t so bad. I mean, just look at his face!
