The jalapeno peppers, which were disappointments last year, are making up for it, and were the earliest producers this year. We have been
I had oral surgery (again) on Monday.
There is a lot that I could say about that, but which I probably won’t because I am on painkillers and still feeling pretty woozy. (Percoset this time, which seems to work better for me then Vicodan, and has the added bonus of not making me feel frighteningly light-headed and nauseous.)
I will say that after 7 months and 3 surgeries, the fact that I am still essentially at square one in the process is pretty disheartening.
Hopefully the implant will take this time.
At least I had a good “last supper” before the surgery – John and I went to see RED (which was hilarious) and then got take-out from City Barbeque. I ordered the full rack platter (with corn pudding and hush puppies for the side dishes) despite the fact that historically, the half-rack platter is pretty much the extreme limit of what I can eat. I wanted to have the opportunity to eat as much (and as much protein) as I could before a week or so of a liquid diet. Predictably, I only ate about half of the rack and half of the hush puppies, though I finished off all of the corn pudding because I love the way that City Barbeque does corn pudding.
John had the leftovers for lunch the next day while I was doped up and sleeping off the general anesthesia on the couch while “watching” DVDs of the first (and only) season of “The Middleman”.
Right now I am just sitting at home taking painkillers and trying not to touch my face and not accomplishing much of anything at all, which makes me feel bad (because I can’t stand NOT “getting stuff done”) until I remember that the point of taking sick days off after surgery is to rest up and get better.
Anyway, I go back to work (albeit from home) tomorrow when I am down to only a dose or two of painkillers per day and will be able to (hopefully) focus on work again.
Of the four “bedrooms” in our house, only one of them (the master bedroom) is being used for its intended function. The other
