Don't sing Praises Just yet!

On Monday November 26, 2007 I went to the Dentist. He was going to finally do the root canal that I needed. I say finally because of scheduling conflicts this was my third attempt to have this done. If it was not done this day I was going looking for a different dentist.



The procedure was done painlessly and everything felt great. Tuesday morning no swelling very little pain. I took IB 400 mg. Wednesday once again no swelling very little pain. Thursday morning I thought it was starting to swell. I convinced myself i was being an alarmist and nothing was wrong. As a matter of fact I thought I should sing the praises of a Dentist who could do this procedure with no complications what so ever. Friday, PAIN, SWELLING. What is going on why is this happening now it should have happened Tuesday not Friday. Saturday, I looked like someone punched me in the face. No bruising just lots of Swelling and Great Pain IB 600 mg every 4 hours. I wrote down the times so I would not over medicate myself and on Sunday I call the Dr.



He call in a RX for 500 mg of Amoxicillin. I started the med right away. Today My face is still swollen the pain is more like pressure. So I call the Dr.'s office and got an appointment for tomorrow. They are going to remove the temporary filling and clean it out and then put in a new temporary filling.

The office girl told me not to press on it. DUH! that would hurt. I do not hurt me! If all goes will I will start singing prasies that the pain is gone but if not. Just watch the news!

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
