It's Thursday morning and I woke up with a toothache. Well, I went to bed with a vague achey feeling in the tooth that has no nerves (because of the root canal) but I ignored it. I'm learning that as I get older, something always feels vaguely unsettled. This morning I bit down and owww.
Now I'm waiting for the dentist to call me back. I probably should have explained to her that I have had several infections over the past few years (two were MRSA and required hospitalization for a week at a time for IV antibiotics and surgery) and I tend to get nasty infections. I think the antibiotic she prescribed was not strong enough and not of long enough duration. I hate the thought of starting another round of medicine but I hate the thought of losing my jaw bone to an infection even more.
I have decided to keep the current pair of socks I am knitting for myself. I am loving the pattern and the intended recipient is "meh" about it so they will be mine. Like that is a hardship. I like the colors and I like the pattern. The bamboo/wool blend will only get softer once they're washed. This is not a stretchy pattern nor does it race along. I wonder why some patterns seem to fly off the needles and some leisurely mosey along. I already have something else in mind for gift giving so it's all good.
Oh, and I knew I liked Brigitte Bardot for a reason (not because she could act). She was quoted as saying that Sarah Palin was saying things that were "so disconcertingly stupid that she is an insult to women". Gotta love people who just put their thoughts right out there.
Nothing profound today. Too many thoughts of the dentist poking around saying "just a little pinch...."
ETA: I've tried several times to break up the preceding paragraph to make it easier to read but blogger seems to think it knows best. Sorry.
