Charge it Like a Puzzle, Hit Me Wearin' Muzzles

Whew. Last week's of near-silence has erupted in a wildfire of chattiness on my part today. I'm even out-chatting Darwin. And let me tell you, Anakin is getting all sorts of philosophical on Obi-Wan Kenobi's ass. Where as Obi-Wan is all, "JUST HOLD THE LIGHTSABER."

Erupted? Should that be going with a volcano instead of wildfire? Oh, whatever.

So, last week I had two cavities filled. No big deal, right? Right. Except for the fact that my dentist shot the numbing stuff into my check tendon instead of the soft tissue and, oh you're never gonna guess this - trust me, GUESS WHO GOT SICK? Go on, guess who had some funkadelic allergic reaction from medicine.

::sigh:: It's becoming a stupid human trick. Let's see if she has an allergic reaction to this! And while we're at it, go ahead and zucchini and summer squash to the list of things I am now allergic to you and no, you really don't want want to be around to witness that reaction. Trust me.

Stupid food and medicine allergies aside, we're adjusting nicely to the new schedule.

Griffin's idea of making breakfast for the family: gluten-free pretzels, chocolate chips, oranges, Gorilla munch (gluten-free, like Captain Krunch without shredding your gums) and orange juice. Not pictured: apples washed in the bathroom and dried with the floor towel. MmmMmmMmm... delicious!

Griffin loves going to school full day (I'm sure that tune will change when he starts getting homework next week) and his first soccer practice was AWESOME. Darwin starts preschool in a week and is trying his hand at gymnastics this week.

This will be good for us, all this Structure. I've always done better with Structure. I think that's one of the reasons why summer and I don't get along. Summer doesn't have much Structure. I'm the type of person who needs a schedule book to efficient, otherwise I lie about the house staring that ceiling trying to fight this feeling of WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING RIGHT NOW?

I don't do too well without structure either. Though even with the structure, I am still minimally functional today. I only just realized that I can't take the kids with me to Back to School night... crap.

Rosanne said...

Oh, I just had two cavities filled and it was bad enough without an allergic reation, and zucchini too, what will be next?!

Ashley said...

Uh huh. Me too. If I don't have a scheduled day, I do nothing. I'll work today. But then? I'll probably walk the dog and nap! Don't think I wouldn't complain if I was too busy, though. Just saying.

It must be that time of year.My oral allergies have gone crazy.I can't even work out what's triggering them off.I'm thinking it's wine but I'm not telling anyone.I've had a mouth full of ulcers for over a month now.No fun at all. Hope you are feeling all better now.How will you live without courgettes?What other side dish is there to order in an Italian restaurant?!Mind you with your gluten allergy I bet those places are a no go.

oh, that cheek tendon thing happened to me once before! sore! and have you ever had a dentist hit a nerve with the needle?
i once had a reaction, too, not sure if it was allergic though, i started hyperventilating while sitting on my own waiting for the injection to work, that was a bit scary. i think i was hyperventilating, anyways. they came in shortly after and got all very worried and put some kind of drops under my tong, after which things calmed down again.
actually, the memory is a bit blurry.
i think i might have just gotten a bit nervous of the impending root canal...

real allergies suck big time, though!! i used to be allergic to some stuff, but thank god it's eased off after puberty...

love that Gorilla Munch.

i sit around wondering not what I should be doing but what i should be eating. nice for the diet i'd say.

oh man we love gorrilla munch. I buy it in bulk off of amazon. That's like a power breakfast right there. I'd be ready to get down to business once i was done... and squash zuc allergy? srsly? That's surprising because it's generally a fairly mild food. It's got to be hard to spin that wheel of allergies every day.
