Ravelry....I'm Up and Running

I'm so excited, I finally got my invite to Ravelry, and I have been adding my stash, I might have a little more than I thought, and I haven't even touched the mother load. DH thinks he knows where all my Stash "spots" are....LMAO is about all I can say. Men, they have no clue about anything, they think they do, but I guess our job is to continue letting them think that.

Well, Ravelry is so cool. You search for patterns by yarns, or search for yarns, and then possible pattern suggestions for it, and you can see what other people are working on using the same thing, and the other colors that are out there. It's awesome, I'm loving it. My one problem is that I just don't have the time with everything going on right now, but I'm trying. Also, there are groups to join so that you can be involved with people who have the same likes as you like Malabrigo, or PINK. AWESOME!!!!

Why I hate the DENTIST

So, I started having some pain in one of my teeth back at the end of June. Well, I went to the dentist and he told me it was infected and that I was going to have to have a root canal. My regular dentist started it, but couldn't get the entire procedure finished, that I would have to go to a specialist. Well, the specialist, as they all seem, didn't have hours outside of work, so I kept postponing it since it wasn't really, really bothering me, and it was partially done. Well, I postponed it one too many times. Last weekend I was woken up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain in my tooth area, but obviously couldn't do anything about it until Monday. Well, Monday came and they day went on and the pain became insufferable. I had been able to get an appt. for Tuesday morn., but by 1pm I knew I couldn't wait that long. I called again, and they were able to get me in at 3pm. Well, it turns out that I had an infection in my tooth so severe that he talked hospital stay. Oy, what had I done to myself? His first recommendation was to extract te tooth immediately, but I was adamant about keeping it. Well, they let it "drain" over night, and Tuesday morning I went back in to have it looked at. They scheduled me for the following week for the root canal. Tuesday was a not so good day, but Wednesday wasn't too bad. Well, Thursday came and once again I was woken up in the middle of the night in agony.

After long and careful thought and discussion with other people, I decided that it would be best to "extract" the tooth, and that's exactly what the Oral Surgeon did yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. My mouth is swollen, the area where the tooth WAS hurts, and I feel uncomfortable. I just hope that this is the end of all of my issues. This is the last thing I need while just starting a new job. One is usually trying to show off, but all I seem to do is show off how problematic I can be, but I'm usually not and I don't know what to do. I can just hope that my boss sees it for what it is, and nothing more. I really am trying my best not to let any of this interfere with work, and unfortunately it has. The one thing though I must give credit to myself for is my commitment to my job. I will do whatever it takes to get the job done, and make sure that everything my boss needs is taken care of. I happened to luck out with this tooth problem as he was out of the country, and my counterpart was able to cover his phones for me while I was out. Although it doesn't help much with all the guilt I feel for letting myself get to this point.

I have to tell myself to leave the all the questions at the door because I am doing the best I can, and I try to give everything 150%, and I don't think anyone could ask for more.

So, from now on just call me Blue like the guy from "Old School".
