Feeling much better this morning, thank you!

I have drugs (pseudoephedrine type allergy drugs) and my head feels clear!

I actually awoke with a giggle this morning. My sunlight clock woke me up and when I opened my eyes my eldest cat Luna was sitting there staring at me... I don't know what she wanted, it was creepy and funny all at once!

Ellis, I think getting your daughter a momento to mark her official womanhood is a wonderful idea. She may not feel like "celebrating" now, but maybe eventually she'll look at it differently, once she gets the hang of it.

Wildfire - PM me, I'll give you my company's 800 number, give it to your boss and I'll tell him to go himself. His reaction was nothing short of rude and self centered... like your pain is *nothing*?? Ug, grrrr.... I promise to make that appointment as soon as I have the fundage (no insurance here).

Well, guess I should work.... everyone!

Terri

NOW we're cooking with fire..

I phoned my dentist this afternoon because it suddenly dawned on me that I just shouldn't have to be in so much freakin' pain. He offerred me Tylenol 3 or Percocet...my choice. Well, since I still have to function at work, I took the T3's. There is so much pressure in my jaw, it feels like the side of my face might just explode. That root canal will be nothing compared to all this pain!

Punkin, compared to our inventory count, my pain is nothing to any of the managers at work. Even though I'm not involved in the actual count, just the adjustments when it's all done. Didn't even see the Boss man today. Your Luna cat was probably waiting for you to explain why it was SO bright in her bedroom this morning. Glad you're feeling better.

Gotta find something for supper that doesn't require much chewing.

Wildfire - I am glad you are soon to be in less pain!

Ellis - I think getting something cute for your daughter might be nice. I didn't get anything, but I didn't get my period until after I graduated high school and then it was actually drug induced. I had to go to the GYN and have all sorts of tests done to find out why I wasn't getting one. I was just fine without one as far as I was concerned Turns out I have a hormonal imbalance and need to be on the Pill to straighten it out. Not exactly something I wanted to celebrate. How are you feeling? Any better?

Christina - Thinking about you and I hope things are going ok.


Thanks for all the support over me & my boy. Talking was good and I am now over my cuddly induced haze. Just kinda bummed about the 3 month thing. But it isn't like we won't talk, just not see each other. Then he will be around for at least 6 months when he graduates. Then who knows. But that is far off from now. And Ellis, you are right, nothing is better then a good friend. Part of the reason I was hesitant when the whole thing started is as much as I like fooling around, his friendship was (and still is) more important and I didn't want anything to ruin that.

Hugs to all

Evening everyone

I am feeling much better today after sleeping for two days straight and being on the tea and toast diet I managed to drag my butt in to work and made it through to 5 pm. I hate being sick

Ellis-your poor DD what a bad start to the day but at least it ended well. Maybe you could get her a little something as a giftee to mark the occasion. My Mom barely even talked to me about it as she was very shy and embarrassed about personal things like that. In fact we never even had the "sex talk" no wonder I don't have kids yet

Wildfire-hope you are feeling no pain

Punkinseed- I was just picturing Luna nose to nose with you, I have a cat too and she does the same thing, it is kind of cute and funny but slightly creepy too.


Thanks Den and Ellis for the kind thoughts about my MIL. I still miss her

Mauvais, sweetie... would you like us to tell you all about ummm, sex!?
Thank goodness for sex-ed, huh? My mom sat me down at the age of 15 for a chat, and I said, "MOM!! We learned that in school!!"

Okay, you've all convinced me to get my daughter a gift. I know where it's coming from... you're all thinking, "Gee, I'D damn well like a gift for getting MY period!!"

Terri, Mauvais, Squeak, Wildfire... I'm glad you're all getting better...

Speaking of being sick, I was in bed last night and there was a mosquito buzzing around me. In fear for my life, I spent a busy 30 seconds trying to kill the damned thing before I dropped off to sleep. I don't know if it bit me, but I die you'll know why... fatigue... it can kill you.

Angry Ellis...

I do think it is a good idea to do something significant for your daughter's first ummm... menses?? (HAHAHA... I really hate that word!!) But seriously, I have heard of ceremonies and gifts and meals and the like. If I ever have a daughter, I think it would be nice to buy her something lasting that would remind her to value that she is FEMALE (yay!) and to also honor her sexuality. I remember when I got my period it just felt dirty and icky. No talk about what a great thing it is to be a woman. Maybe get her a garnet ring (something with a red stone) or something similar that she could always have with her. Now that she is a girl-woman she is able to get pregnant!!! AGHHHH!!!! A nice talk about cherishing and protecting her sexuality might be appropriate too. What a blessing to have a daughter!

Whew Sojo! I made the comment then you dissappeared so of course, I wondered.... As much as I adore the internet it does sadly lack the ability to show humor or things like that. I'm glad it cracked you up - humor is often the best cure for many of life's stresses.

Wildfire - You've got drugs!!!! Hope it feels better soon - I'll be thinking of you Monday.

Mauvais, I'm glad you're feeling better!

Ellis - I think Sojo's idea of something with a red stone is perfect! I remember the exact moment I started and there was no "yeah!!! You're now a woman!!". Instead my Dad asked sheepishly if I wanted to go to my Mom's house.
Both of my girlfriends with daughters have plans for their first cycle - my Pagan friend has been telling her daughter about her "moon time" for a couple years (she's 8) and she's thrilled to become a woman - unfortunately she will probably have her first pretty soon.

to everyone!

Hi-ho hi-ho,

Terri

Hey Christina, how are you doing lately?

Wildfire-hope your root canal went okay.

Ellis-I think the idea of some garnet jewelry is a great idea!

Hey, Punkinseed, I may need that Stay-Puf fertility god myself one day, you never know...

Wildfire - How's the tooth?? Do you have that side effect where you drool off one side because it's numb?? If so, maybe it's best to stay away from the keyboard!

Default I survived!

It wasn't fun by any means, but the root canal wasn't as bad as I was expecting. The endodontist specialist guy was pretty easy on the eyes, too. My dentist stopped in twice to make sure I was okay, which I thought was really nice. I was there for two hours! Geez, my jaw hurt! It's pretty sore today, but not sharp-pain-sore, more that I can just tell there was a lot of digging around in there, and of course I can hardly open my mouth because it's so sore from the injection. But I survived!!!! *happy dance*

I go back next Wednesday for a permanent filling.

Thanks for all the good vibes, they worked!!!
