Life

Those of you who blog (or who have any sort of a social media life) must know how I feel right now - you really want to post something, but really don't want to bore your readers with waffle about absolutely nothing!  I'll do my best to update you on life without droning.  ;)

As most of you would know (I think!) I had my wisdom teeth out two weeks ago.  General anaesthetic is so weird:  I was breathing in the gas through the mask and just as I was wondering when something was going to happen, the doctor said, "You should start to get a bit dizzy about now.  Are things a bit blurry?"  I nodded as I realized that they were indeed.  At this point I started praying silently for peace and protection.  The next thing I know, I was forcing myself awake in the recovery room.  I don't remember blacking out or closing my eyes or anything.  It is an odd sensation.  As well as the general anaesthetic, the doctor had injected my gum and jaw with local anaesthetic, leaving me feeling heavy and uncontrolled in my face.  The next morning, All the numbness was gone and I felt really good, considering I had had surgery - a bit sore, but that was to be expected.  Saturday night had me on painkillers, which continued all day Sunday, I was in so much pain.  I started freaking out too, as I kept bringing up clots of blood.  Monday morning had me in the couch in tears from the discomfort of it all.  Mum rang the dentist who decided he wanted to check me out.  As it turns out,  my bottom left gap had developed a condition called 'dry mouth' or 'dry tooth' or something like that.  The short of it is that I wasn't clotting properly and all the clots I was bringing up were actually wearing away on my gum.  Nice, I know,  ;)  This is the clincher though: 95% of people who develop this condition are smokers.  What do you know?  I beat the odds again!  LOL!  (In case you are suddenly wondering, I do not smoke, so set your little hearts at rest.  :) )


My baby sister turned two years old the other week!  I can't believe she is no longer a baby - it seems like only yesterday I was holding her in my arms, trying to get her to stop screaming with the colic she had in her tummy.  She is such a merry little girl now, and seems to have a talent for singing and dancing.  She sings and does all the actions for the song "Let It Go" from the new Disney movie Frozen.  It is really cute.

Other than that, I have just been "pegging away at my books" as Jo March would say.  :D  I am doing the 1950's in history at the moment.  The more I study out century, the more I am saddened by the sin, the hatred and the bloodshed that mankind imposed on each other.  

I have also been studying philosophy, advanced mathematics, and chemistry.  Not all riveting, but it is better than sitting back and twiddling my thumbs all day.   :)   Actually, I do enjoy most of it, so it is all good. :)

We have been watching the Olympics in Sochi lately.  I was so pleased Torah Bright won a medal - she has been through a lot int eh last couple of years.  The highlight for me though is the "Russian Revolution" with Roy and HG.  They are like a last generation version of Hamish and Andy and they are sooooo funny!  

Anyway, I hope I didn't bore you too much!  God bless you all and have a wonderful weekend!  :)
