Very close to pulling my hair out. I forgot to put a patch on this morning so im craving like mad. I know there are smokes around here somewhere, but i dare not go dive for them. Very tempted to take a nap, but my hubby passed out first. Oh well. Gonna slap a patch on and bite my nails. Maybe a puzzle. Im not sure… HELP!
It was in the lovely 80’s and we all ( Chad, Chase, Summer, Melody, Aaron, Holly, Mom and I) all met at the park for a weekend visit. It was a nice low breeze, perfect t-shirt weather. We brought water, mom tacos, and Holly and Aaron fruit. So we all had some yummy munchies and silly conversations.
Then things get silly… Mom pops out with some glitter eye-shadow meant for Melody, but Summer grabbed it and ran to her Uncle Aaron. Silly girls gets him with some and giggles. Then she moves on to Chase. Poor Chase… She got him with bright red and pink ON his eyebrows and mustache. Poor guy takes it like a champ. I have videos too…
Yeah, what a mess!! ❤
I have a feeling today is going to be a good non-smoking day if i can get some sleep and get my head on straight. And hopefully the pain under control. Maybe im trying to do too much at once. But, i just want to be healthy no matter how rough it is!
We start off around 11 getting supplies for the park then heading off to see lovely Chase and Summer. Spend a few hours there, clean up and have some homestyle fun! A game and a movie has become our new Saturday night thing. Then my daily puzzle hopefully fighting off the cravings the whole darned day. Initially i want to sleep through it, but i cant with a kiddo in the house.
After just having a dental implant Monday, tonight i run across an article titled
“What are common problems caused by dental implants ?“at… https://www.reference.com/health/common-problems-caused-dental-implants-33fbd93a5bdfef01?qo=similarQuestions
Just something i seriously didn’t want to read, see or come across. Maybe i should stay away from the computer…? But im still curious after having it done and how darned much it HURTS. So *sigh* A long night ahead of me before i sleep. These painkillers just wont kick in!
With the meds and all the dr’s shes working with, i figured its time for her to have one of her own. Just in case shes at school they can scan her in. It has a QR code, a website and phone number listed on the bracelet! So they will know who she is, what her issues are, and what to do. I just dont feel safe right now with her running around without one. Now its just going to be a matter of getting her to wear it!
I may just get a matching one too!
Well it started yesterday when i got Melody’s artwork bag and one of her silly face, and an art work magnet. I love that little Sunshine she made, its on alot of things now thanks to Shutterfly. And was free because i saved my coupons like a good girl! Just shipping, which my husband says its not free if you pay shipping. Well it also ain’t 20 bux a bag! Whatever.
Today i got her little puzzle. And of course i picked the 252 piece instead of the 64. DOH. She cant do those! That was yet another “freebie”.
Then i got my new med ID charm with all the right meds engraved in the back. When i got the first one, i wasn’t on asthma meds. DOH. I couldn’t return something that wasn’t their fault 😦
Then my shipment from USPS came of 4 inhalers. Paid 3.70 for all 4, so i was super happy when they came. My FIRST one was $76!!! Then off to the pharmacy for nose spray and more meds for my mouth and stuff.
So its been alot of running around and deliveries, but a good day so far. Except my damned mouth still hurts.
Feeling kinda crappy. I didn’t realize i didn’t have a patch on all day yesterday. So yesterday was bad, its like resetting the clock in your body. Im looking for ideas to do. I have one puzzle left and will get some more tonight, but even those are getting boring. I did get one from Shutterfly of Melody’s Sun, Can’t wait to play with that one! I’m just kinda “blah” today. Not necessarily full of urges, just wants and i have to remind myself no.
I cant do gum, I cant battle suckers or blow-pops, so i neeeeeed advice. I could sleep all day but i have a child…
Edit to Add: Today was pretty manageable. I woke up quite late to begin with, by the time we were going to head out to the pharmacy the mail man was here with my inhalers. And then the UPS man chased me down to my car with my shutterfly! I love it that they know me. Then we did our buisness of picking up more meds at the pharmacy then chilled for a bit. I love it when its just us and im not grumpy.
And after all that and the implant pain, i still felt good enough to get the grocery shopping for the week. I have a new “planner” that i use to meal plan and today is the first time ive used it. Still missed a few things though. And thats it for day 22.
