What a Week so Far…

So…..Monday morning I woke up and my gums were swollen. The kind of swollen where I thought my gums might actually swallow my teeth! I don’t know if I ate something too sharp or food got stuck under my over sensitive gums but holy moly!!!  New Girl was off for gastro surgery and Not So New Girl has shingles….I had to work the front desk on Monday and every time I smiled at a patient…there was pain. It was strange enough to be working the front desk so adding the ouchy smile didn’t make for a great day. I had called to make a dentist appointment for Tuesday even though we were on a skeleton crew. Thankfully my homemade mouthwash of vodka,salt water, and clove oil helped. Tuesday morning the swelling was down by 75%. I also rubbed clove oil mixed with fractionated coconut oil on my gums before bed. I honestly don’t know which thing contributed the most help but something worked.

Tuesday night after work I brought Crude Girl her fruit basket from the big doctor and she is moving pretty darn good after her back surgery. I was relieved and happy for her…she has been struggling for a very long time. We had a nice little visit…I just need to coordinate with M so we can have our own little Christmas party. Since there is not a lot of Christmas spirit at work this year. No gift exchanges, no cookie swaps, and no office party.

Once I came home from the brief visit from Crude Girl I felt I needed a nap. I set my alarm for 7:30pm and didn’t really wake up until 8:50pm???? That was a crazy long nap!! I still went to bed at a 11:30pm but still….I crashed hard. Plus I didn’t get a thing checked off of my list….I must have needed it?

Today was a good day…it went fast and the Optician was off. BV was there and that led to a much calmer day. After work I ran some “have to” errands like car payment, etc. I had a hair appointment and then I came home and started getting ready for my dinner with KB.

We had a really nice visit and she gave me the best Christmas present this year!!!!

This is a hand painted ornament of Craigh Na Dun from Outlander. I love…love….love it!!!! She also got me some dishtowels…..


This is the kind of gift that makes me want to invest in the Cricut. There is money to be made! There are also gifts to give!!! I have often said that I would be dangerous with a Cricut.  I have almost made this purchase the last two years and yet I always talk myself out of it….what do you think???  Part of me thinks that if I am still talking about it three bonus checks later…then maybe I should just go for it? The other part of me says I should be saving every penny to pay off the dentist bill within the year -same as cash timeline. Maybe I could make some extra money with the Cricut contraption…lots of other people do? I have plenty of time to think about it before we even get our bonuses. Hopefully it will be on sale if I decide to go for it next month….Zia
