That’s exactly how I’m doing right now (in case you’re new here…I just got my wisdom teeth out two days ago)!!
Yes there is swelling, yes there is pain, yes I have to rest, and yes I can’t eat my normal diet…but I am actually really happy with how I’m recovering and improving!! The pain isn’t nearly as bad as I expected and my only other real symptoms are a little fatigue/tiredness and a few headaches here and there!
I wanted to thank you all again for your kindness and get well wishes! I truly think its helping me recover! You all have been so sweet!
[My sister sent me these lovely flowers!! Love ya Lis!!]
I also want to give a shout out to the doc that performed my surgery! HE WAS AWESOME! So nice, comforting, and, in spite of all the digging and drilling, made the procedure as smooth as possible! He even personally called a few hours after the surgery to see how I was doing. Talk about good patient care!!!
So seeing as I ‘ve been having to rest lately…and that includes not going to school (usually I’d be happy about this…but this is such a BUSY time of year right now so it’s a little stressful staying home!), I’ve been trying to think of creative ways to fill my days!
Eating takes up a lot of time because I have to make stuff that takes longer to prepare and have to be a bit more creative with my eats! The first two days were pretty much all liquid and really soft stuff, but today I am actually eating some solid food! I missed it!
Recent eats have included (sorry no pics!):
-pureed winter squash
-lots of way overcooked veggies
-steamed kabocha (I actually really enjoyed this!!)
-LOTS of yogurt
-pureed frozen fruit (peaches, strawbs, and bluebs are especially delicious heated up and chopped up!)
-oats with pumpkin
-overcooked pasta with humus and tomato sauce
One snack I have been really enjoying lately is chopped apples or pears heated up with mashed and heated frozen blueberries, topped with peanut butter and peanut flour paste! It’s actually really delicious! I will probably have this even after I am fully recovered!
Despite the pretty yummy eats I am reeeeeally missing my crunchy cereals, crackers, raw veggies and fruits, and crisps!
Yesterday I took part in a little retail therapy to help keep my mind off the pain. I give myself a lot of credit for going out in public with my chipmunk cheeks LOL! Can’t believe I’m about to show you this…
[I look so enthused don’t I? This was right after I woke up yesterday morning…]

Anyways, my mom and I ventured to Barns and Noble and Target! Two stores I could spend HOURS walking around in!
I headed to the cookbook section first to see if there were any good new ones on the market! I found a few that looked really interesting and actually took a few screen shots with my phone of some recipes I wanted to try….shhh don’t rat me out.
Look what else I found in the clearance section…
Seriously? Hooters has a cookbook!? What’s next a Burger King cookbook?
On to Target! This is where the real damage was done!
Found some new Chobani! And FINALLY bought some of the new flavors!
Both were delicious. Yes they are both gone in less than 24 hours
More soft veggies for the teeth!
For some at home yoga!
The rest of the day was spent doing school work, knitting, and trying to stay productive! I am one of those people who needs to be doing something all day…its reeeeeally hard for me to sit and do nothing! So hopefully I don’t have any other serious surgeries or injuries any time soon!
Hope everyone has an enjoyable Thursday!
New Office tonight! WOO HOO!
