It's so weird having open holes in my mouth...

I'm feeling much better today than yesterday. I'm still sleeping most of the day. I feel like a total bum. I wake up for a few hours, watch some TV, eat some ice cream with a pill, and go back to sleep. Hopefully, I'm healing quickly, though. I'm noticing more mobility in my jaw every day now I'm trying very hard not to do anything to get a dry socket. It's one of the things I'm very much afraid of. But surprisingly, it really hasn't been that painful at all. I mean.. I swear the pain/discomfort was worse when the teeth were erupting. It's the irritated/swollen gums& cheeks that are the worst. This is really weird, though, because I'm on more prescription meds than I think I have ever been at any other point in my life. I'm really bad at remembering to take things, too. I have the option of taking up to 2 of these megapainkillers every 3-4 hours. They make me nauseous, though, so I only take 1 every 4 hours. I'm not sure I need them, but I don't really want to let them wear off long enough to find out. At least not for another day or so. But when I wake up in the mornings, it doesn't really hurt. I think my surgeon must just be awesome or somthing, because I can name a ton of lesser procedures that have been more painful than this recovery.

The worst part has been watching food commercials. Suddenly everything looks so good! I figured I'd be fine with eating ice cream& pudding& applesauce for days, but even yesterday, I was looking at the blueberry muffin on the counter and wishing I could take a big bite. And there was this commercial for some steak sandwich on TV.. ugh. I want one D: I also want fish sticks. I haven't had fish sticks in years. Maybe I should just go to Red Lobster when I can handle solids again. I want to chew :O

Still haven't heard back from my brother about the DeG concert tomorrow. I don't think I'm even going to bother calling him anymore. I've resigned myself to the idea of not seeing them live. It sucks, and I'm still a little angry, but I'm mostly ok with it. I could use the extra day to recover. It's just amazing how thoughtless he can be. I mean.. I really don't feel like I can depend on him for important things because he can be so scatterbrained. And this was important to me. I guess it's my own fault for not making other arrangements. I guess if I REALLY had wanted to see them, I would have had three different plans in the works by now, right? Oh well XP

Mr. Fishie seems to be enjoying the new tank setup. The bubbler is gone.. which makes me kinda sad because I liked it. But without the undergravel filter, it just doesn't stay in place. And I have a hard enough time already trying to get the plants to sit with so little gravel. I need to order some java ferns off the internet. But I need to find a place to get them that doesn't have somthing crazy like a 30 plant minimum order. I mean, come on. I have a 2 gallon tank. There's only going to be enough room for like 2 plants in there max XP
I want the ferns, though, because the plastic plants suck. The java ferns have free hanging roots. I just need to tie them down to a rock or somthing and let them go nuts. Plus they'll help keep nitrate levels down, which is less for me to worry about weekly. This whole aquarium thing has been a cool learning experience. It makes me want a bigger tank so I can have a pleco and maybe some chichlids or somthing. Somthing with a real filter at least. So I could do like a 20% water change a week instead of a 100%. But mostly I think I just like decorating the tank XD
Also, for some unknown reason, watching my snail zoom around the tank eating things off the walls and decorations gives me immesurable pleasure. I don't know why. I just love watching him. He's more fun to watch than the betta.


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
