This is a felted piece from a book called, Embellish, Stitch, Felt. I love the colors and was going to use it for inspiration for my Layer Love painting class.
I was also going to plant some things in my garden, do some weeding and just enjoy the gorgeous day outside.
My tooth had other plans. Lucky for me I saw the dentist yesterday for a scheduled routine. She put me on antibiotics and explained all about extensive dental work for that tooth. I brushed off the discussion, I had this pain before, it would go away, it was just my sinus acting up.
I can hardly keep my eyes open to type. I'm on some pain medication to control this pulsing pain thanks to a phone call to my dentist and for two hours it works, before it, the pain, creeps into my awareness again. For those two hours I can gratefully close my eyes and sleep or I can try to stay awake and do things like blogging, washing dishes and folding laundry.
I am not good with pain. I find it annoying and frustrating. My heart goes out to those that have to deal with it on a regular basis. I know a person that often uses up her allotment of pain medication long before she can refill the container. I understand, she just wants the pain to stop.
What I find amusing is that my pets seem to understand that something is wrong. I'm sure the biggest indicator is my crawling into bed in the middle of the afternoon. I could barely keep my eyes open when two cats and a puppy joined me for a nap. Everybody getting as close as possible to the two-legged.
The sound of purring is a relaxing sound and the soft fur of a puppy in comforting to touch as you fall asleep.
A friend said she thought something was wrong when I didn't sound as perky as my usual self. Yep, perky goes right out the window with discomfort. But, I'll be back to my norm in a few days. The doctor and I will take care of this pesky tooth and them I will be charging full steam ahead to make up for lost time. :)Bea
