I survived oral surgery.
Not only did I come out alive, I still had a little goofy pill left in me, so everything was funny.
We made a quick stop at the grocery store in search of ice cream....doctor's orders. (I'm starting to like this lady) then home to relive Ms. Dawne who stayed with the kids. My dentist even told me to sleep late and watch movies. I forced myself out of bed about 10:00 this morning and shorty thereafter my dentist called to check on me. Now I CERTAINLY like this lady....and I probably owe her an apology.
I spent the day with Liberty. Just me and her. Her birthday is tomorrow so we went shopping, ate lunch together (salad for me...thank you very much) drank a coffee together (she had chocolate milk)and we even stopped by McDonald's for ice cream (fruit and yogurt parfait for me...thank you very much and McDonald's ice cream is my absolute favorite dessert in Portugal!)
Lib then got to pick out a few things for her birthday. One of which was a calculator. She is such a nerdy little thing. She always has a notebook and pencil in her hand. And now she has her calculator too. The entire half hour drive home she quizzed me. "Mom, how much is 2,456 x 3,769?" When I couldn't answer she'd tell me how smart she USED to think I was.
While at the mall, I ran into the dentist's assistant. She was shocked to see me shopping the morning after surgery. She asked if I felt okay then told me I needed ice. I felt like I was in trouble, so I said a quick goodbye and fled.
Now I'm home, checking email, blogging and drinking a cup of tea called, "No Belly".
Hope it works.
