Work was kind of busy today, and then I had to go to a dentist appointment. Last time I went to the dentist, it was to get a cavity filled, and the Novocain didn't work. So, I could feel every single thing that she was doing. Eventually, she stopped to give me more Novocain, but when that didn't work, she had to do a white filling instead of the silver so that she could stop drilling early.
(Apparently redheads -- or people like me with red undertones -- do not respond like normal human beings to anesthesia or local pain blockers like Novocain.)
Needless to say, even though it was just a preventative cleaning, I was dreading the dentist today.
While it ended up being an okay visit, I was there for over an hour, had to get a bazillion x-rays taken (turns out that I have some sinus issues that are causing my upper left jaw to hurt), and now have super sore teeth.
When I got home from the dentist, I did dishes and then cooked and ate dinner. I'm currently trying to decide if I want to do the rest of the dishes when I sign off of here or if I should go to bed instead. I'm not going to lie: bed is sounding like the better option, and it's not even 8:00 yet.
Wow, it looks so different than normal.
My mom made this for dinner tonight and said that after my dad tried it before heading out to a meeting, he said that they should have it again for dinner tomorrow. One of my best childhood friends (who's now in Seattle) said that she made a variation of it for dinner last night and loved it, too.
It's quite the hit, let me tell you! If you haven't made it yet, hop to it!
I actually wasn't super hungry for breakfast, so I only ate a portion and then finished the rest for lunch. I also ate my apple and a bit of leftover chicken, spaghetti squash, and asparagus, but it just wasn't doing it for me.
As a result, I was pretty hungry come dinner time.
|Quite a lovely picture, huh? What a boring-looking meal.|
On another note, I think I ate too many carbs (i.e. two sweet potatoes) today. Oops.
Physical: As I mentioned, I am so ridiculously tired. I think some of it has to do with the time change, but I think the rest of it has to do with a number of factors: the is-it-or-is-it-not period, the fact that I didn't sleep super well last night, and the issue of me not eating exactly what I should be (i.e. enough at each meal -- dinner last night, breakfast and lunch today). So, I'm going to crash very, very early tonight.
Emotional: I have been a bit irritable today, and again, I think that has to do with a number of things: I'm tired, my lady bits can't make up their mind, I was dreading the dentist, etc. Tomorrow is a new day.
Cravings: Other than really, really wanting someone to come and do my dishes for me, I'm good. :)
