Happy Valentines Day!

So it’s been seven days since my wisdom tooth was removed. It’s been a long seven days as I have felt awful but today I was eating soup and oatmeal so that’s a plus.

I didn’t have a fever and was able to shave and wash my hair which made me feel like a new woman.

It did wear me out but for the most part I have every again. Thankfully I had bought kids and my hubby cards before feeling bad.

The kids and my husband has cars and flowers for me today which always makes me feel special. I’m bummed I couldn’t celebrate more with kids and hubby but I will be feeling back to my old self very soon.

It rained here nearly 24 hours straight which nearly never happens here in the desert. I am praying for the time when it doesn’t hurt to eat so I can have real food again.

Kids are both off Monday so here’s to a three day weekend and hopefully more energy for me.

I’ve missed my workouts and missed having energy for Basic everyday stuff. Tomorrow I will test the waters and see what I have energy to do and how my pain level is. I hope everyone had a fantastic day!

So today is day four since my oral surgery and my whole right side of my face is still sore.

I’m swollen and basically been living on water, Gatorade and soup. I’ve been able to add in oatmeal and mashed potatoes. But can’t eat anything more at this point.

I appreciate all my sweet friends and family who have been checking in on me and seeing if I need anything.

I was able to take Savannah for yogurt tonight since she was so good all day today. I couldn’t have any toppings just plain yogurt but was nice change from soup and oatmeal.

Brandon had his orthodontist appointment today and I asked if they would be able to let me know when he gets X-ray next if his wisdom teeth will need to come out.

I am hoping he doesn’t have any issues like I am having with mine. Both on screen in books and life lately there has been so much showing of true colors. Anyone that’s been fake is becoming clear.

We saw an adorable baby girl while at yogurt tonight and it made me smile. Can’t believe we’re grandparents what a blessing. Savannah has grown so much and I can hardly believe she will be four this summer.

Brandon turns 13 in October and I hit the big 40. I don’t want to waste a moment of this precious life we have.

My husband Jeff has been helping out a lot while I’ve been recovering. He’s cooking for kids and making me soup he took Brandon to school for me this morning so I could sleep in with Savannah.

He showed me a picture in his phone from back when we first met. It was a great picture but definitely showed me how much I’ve aged or matured and it’s nuts how fast time flies by and how much my body and face is starting to show signs of aging.

Kids will both be at school tomorrow so plan is sore or not to get a lot done. I hope everyone had a wonderful start to your week! Goodnight 😴 day four swollen face after wisdom tooth removed.

February 10, 2019

So Friday I had my wisdom tooth removed was supposed to have three removed. But the one we took out was really infected and took a lot more time than expected.

I was pretty sore and still am swollen and ache. Saturday was the worst I was puking all day even during my drive home which was awful. I was having fever and chills.

Today thankfully no more nausea but I was sore all day. My son spent last night at his best friends house after their basketball game. Glad he had such a good time.

Savannah was so good for Jeff and I and he got me soups and yogurt at the store. Today I had ya meet them at Starbucks to pick up Brandon I was able to eat a oatmeal thankfully and had a little coffee but didn’t really have much.

Savannah got a little cranky so we left shortly after that to get us home. I was able to eat soup today lots of fluids and keep medicine down.

My husband went to get me mashed potatoes and coleslaw which I was able to eat potatoes pretty well not so much the cole slaw. Kids got chicken and other goodies.

Savannah was so cute playing doctor with me today getting me ice packs when I needed.

Not looking forward to getting my other wisdom teeth out since this has been so horrible but they need to come out. My face doesn’t look pretty I’m definitely swollen.

Tomorrow Savannah is home from school but Brandon has school so we will have some girl time for sure.

Hoping to take kids to LEGO Movie when I’m all healed up. I need to make an appointment for a physical and a Pap smear. I’m turning 40 this fall so I’d like to get all my bloodwork done and get s good checkup.

I’m thankful I had my Dad looking after me Friday after my surgery and on our way home he has always been the best caretaker. Love him so much.

Don’t think I’m going to do barre this week but hoping to get on Peloton by Tuesday when Savannah is back to school. I need to get valentines stuff for kids school exchanges.

It’s not looking like I will be up for valentines dinner out so maybe just a movie if my jaw and mouth are still sore and swollen.

Hoping to get some sleep tonight. One last dose of medicine but no more pain pill until the morning 😂

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Goodnight 😴

Well it’s already February. Can hardly believe how fast January went by.

I’ve been getting In peloton and Pure Barre workouts. This past week was good just very busy. Got to have coffee with my friend on Wednesday and again with another friend on Friday.

Thursday enjoyed Savannah’s snack and share day at school with her and got in a great Reform class at Pure Barre and did a 45 minute peloton class after.

I’ve added mediation to my daily routine and it’s really nice. Friday my son got out at noon so I went straight from coffee to pick him up took him out to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch and had. Nice afternoon. We saw my niece and nephew as well which is always nice.

Friday evening I took Brandon to get In N Out burger before his junior high dance. He had such a great time. Savannah and I got some fun girl time together while Brandon was at the dance.

Today we took it easy it’s been raining all day and night. We went out fir coffee stayed in relaxed and played with kids all day.

I went out to meet my friend Sheri for dinner and it was nice I rarely go out for dinner with a friend it’s always a treat. I made sure I was home before Savannah’s bedtime so I could cuddle with her and we put Moana on.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and wonderful February so far!

What a week highs and lows for sure. My kiddos went back to school Tuesday I got a lot done. Wednesday was a huge bummer noticed around 7:45 am that my 11am class was cancelled then looked to see what other morning classes. I then noticed another instructor teaching the pm intensive class that is only taught by my favorite instructor.

I was worried so I texted to see if she was sick or something else was up. Found out she was fired which was a fife bummer to a great many of us who love barre as much as we do in a huge part because of her motivating us and positive light.

I skipped barre all week until Friday. I did do Peloton nearly everyday though. Got to see some friends but felt bummed in a contract can’t leave so still barre for my exercise but really have limited choices now.

Brandon’s grades have gone up greatly he’s almost at A honors. Savannah had a few tantrums and had two poop accidents. We took my mom and Dad our for Moms b-lates Birthday celebration bow that she was back in town.

Had a lot going on been drained but blessed with family and friends. Brandon’s team did not pull out a win on Saturday which was a bummer.

I got two cute workout outfits which is always more motivation to work out. My husband starts a 42 day program at fit in 42 tomorrow wishing him the best!

My skin has been starting to show signs of a breakout coming. I want to get my thyroid levels tested and get food sensitivity she metabolism tests as my body and hormones have seen out of wack for awhile now.

I am turning 40 this year so getting a physical this year ya a must. I hope everyone had a great weekend filled with more highs than lows 🙏😘🏡

Today was a nice day o slept in and called my mom once I woke up. My beautiful mom turned 70 today she’s on a trip with my dad and having a great Birthday.

I look forward to celebrating with her when she’s back in town. I got in a great Pure Barre workout missed Jenay though was hoping she was teaching today.

Enjoyed my friends and went to lunch with my friend Sheri. Was so nice to catch up. Enjoyed rest of afternoon with my son Brandon and waited for my hubby and Savannah to return home. So happy to see them both.

Stayed in with kiddos made dinner and cinnamon rolls and relaxed and cuddled.Hubby went out for a well deserved meal out he was so great with Savannah on his own for the long weekend.

Yesterday I had nice day with Brandon did my Peloton workout and got to see my bestie Sara for coffee and catching up. Her hubby hurt his back and she had to rush home to get him to the doctors thankfully they got him stuff for the pain. I’m hoping he heals up soon and feels 100% better!

I was able to also get a night out and meet my friend Elizabeth for dinner at a new restaurant and it was a great spot and such s nice time visiting and catching up.

I feel so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. Sending love to all those friends and family far away your always in our hearts.

Hoping everyone had a relaxing and fun filled weekend!

Today I doubled up and did my Pure Reform class and another hour long special Yoga Stretch class after.

Then I raced home to get Brandon to basketball practice and game. The boys played well but the other team pulled out a win.

Came home and had a late lunch one of the prepped meals. It was a delicious taco salad bowl very filling too.

I took a relaxing bath blow dried my hair and cleaned. I miss my sweet little girl but she’s having fun up in the snow. My latest Birchbox arrived will have to try out all the samples this week 😊 Yesterday I had morning coffee with Jeff and Savannah and did Pure Barre went home and prepped three types of mason jar meals and filled a dozen jars.

Picked up Brandon from school hung-out until he had Basketball practice then dropped him there.

We had a goodnight and slept well. It’s so weird not having my little girl and hubby here we kiss them but I have been trying to relax and enjoy time to myself.

My whole body has been sore since Thursday night. I am feeling my workouts for sure and that’s good. I turn 40 this year and I want to be in great shape.

I’m watching A Star is Born love this movie. Hoping that when Brandon’s assignment grades get posted from last week he will have raised his math and English grades.

I’m tired so off to bed I go 😴 Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

So this week has gone by quickly. Sunday we had a nice day with the kids and then went to see The Upside which was a great movie 🍿.

Monday after getting the kids off to school and my morning coffee. I headed to Mexico with my Dad I got my teeth cleaned and found out o need two wisdom teeth pulled next visit.

It was raining like crazy and not fun to drive there during that weather. When we got to our house it was still pouring outside so I rested a bit.

We went and grabbed some dinner the soup was great I wasn’t dying for the rest but it was enough. I got some time to visit with my Dad which was nice. I then just cleaned up for bed watched The Bachelor and got some sleep.

The next day we had breakfast and headed to get things done for trust and I got my visa. We then went to get my dads taxes done then headed home.

We had a late afternoon lunch in San Diego before heading home. So when I got home I hung out with kids but never had dinner was too full from late lunch just snacked on some almonds.

Wednesday I took Savannah to school and then had some coffee and relaxed before my Pure Barre class. I’ve been getting in Peloton workouts nearly everyday and feeling good.

We went to Mc Teacher Night at McDonald’s to support Savannah’s school and her friend Truman. Then I came home and did Peloton workout.

Savannah is excited to go to June Lake to play in the snow tomorrow through Monday. Brandon is still killing me with Math and English grades his other grades are mainly A’s it’s just annoying because it’s simply from lack of effort on his part.

Today I am gonna meet my friend Sheri for coffee after I drop kids to school. Savannah was having fun with her friends when I dropped her off at school.

I had some high fiber oatmeal for breakfast and am getting organized. I have a few more items I didn’t find at grocery store yesterday that I will look for later today or tomorrow.

There will be lots of meals prepping done and make some infused water. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! 😊🏡🌧🌈
