Saturday was a nice lazy day. Still got a few things done… my 2008 NaNoWriMo novel is now down to 39,000 words. :P

Wednesday – what a day! I got the first section of the living room cleaned up (http://karalianne.tumblr.com/post/74980481891/back-to-the-living-room-again-i-keep-unfucking-it has photos and an explanation of what I did). Also got the dishes caught up and did an assignment for my course for school. Had shift tonight, we went to the workout room!

Wow! Your room looks fantastic! I need to do the same for our spare bedroom aka my junk room.

Hey, Janna – I saw the “before” photo, but there’s no “after” photo! Are you in the midst of changing it?

:) karalianne

MaryAnn, there’s a teeny little arrow to the right of the photo that lets you scroll to the second one. And tonight I’ll be posting a link to my before and after photos from TODAY! :D

Oh, I see! The text said "below is the ‘after’ ", and so I kept looking down, completely oblivious to the arrow. Duh.

You did a great job, and I love the systematic way you worked out the steps in the process. Did you follow a model (like UFYH or something) for doing that, or did you work it out on your own?

:) MaryAnn

Translation: Help! I need a template to do similar stuff here!

:) karalianne

Yeah, when I arranged them for the post it was below, and on people’s dash it’s below… but the blog template I chose does them scrolly instead. Which is kind of annoying. :P

I have dealt with this dang room so many times at this point that it’s almost second nature. ;) But the 20 minute stints are from UfYH (I just took longer breaks; she says to take 10 minutes and I took 20 most of the time).

All I did was start at the doorway and work my way around the room counter-clockwise. I started at the top of a pile and worked my way to the bottom. I worked with one type of thing at a time.

So first I got the coats and clothing put away or in a box for later. Then I removed the extraneous guinea pig stuff to the basement for semi-storage. Then I moved my NaNoWriMo bins to the basement storage shelves (don’t actually need them until next year, after all). Then I took the box of presents I need to wrap and mail off to the basement for processing. Then I moved the cardboard recycling and the plastic bags to the entry so I can take them to the barn (cardboard) and garage (bags) to be dealt with later. And that was five things and I took a picture.

Good work! That systematic approach may be helpful in my world, if I can adapt it.

karalianne, in the Yellow Bracket, played Tuesday January, 28th for 56 points, following 100% of her 3 rules. She didn't lose any life points and therefore got 1 piece of fruit for the hard work. Her public review of the day was…

Tuesday I had my dentist appointment. He said probably I was grinding my teeth and my tooth rebelled because an infection wouldn’t get better like that. So I should get a mouth guard and take pain killers but if the pain gets worse again call because they’ll call in a prescription for antibiotics.

We went to see Ender’s Game in the evening. It was okay, nothing spectacular. I didn’t feel like it did the book justice. A TV mini series probably would have worked better.

Returned my Fitbit Flex. I liked it and definitely wouldn’t lose it, but the information it gave me (aside from the really useful information on my sleep cycles) is all stuff I can get from wearing a pedometer all day. Pedometers are cheaper, they just require me to actually enter the information into the computer myself. So I’m going to suck it up and do that; I liked the toy but I don’t need it.

Sunday I was feeling sort of okay. Headaches and other fun though, and I had no patience for frustration and whatnot.

Today I ate a tiny bit of scrambled eggs, a container of applesauce, one ladle of pea soup, and some potato chips. What I could eat was dependent upon my mouth. Chewed all on the left but the eggs were in the morning when things were really sensitive; I poured the applesauce and soup onto the back of my tongue from a spoon; and by the time I ate the potato chips, I was feeling much better.

Yes, with potato chips, things must clearly have been looking up! I’m so glad you are feeling better.

karalianne, in the Yellow Bracket, played Friday January, 24th for 84 points, following 100% of her 4 rules. She didn't lose any life points and therefore got 1 piece of fruit for the hard work. Her public review of the day was…

I didn’t get much sleep last night and I expect I won’t get much tonight, either. Today has been awful. My gums around my back molars on the right side of my mouth are infected or something and they decided to get really really sore last night. I didn’t sleep much; spent a lot of time writhing in pain and getting up to go to the bathroom and swish mouthwash as that at least made it better for a little while. Today I found out that letting room-temperature water sit on that side of my mouth helped more than swishing the mouthwash. Nothing is really helping, though. Painkillers aren’t touching it and I even tried the really strong stuff I was prescribed after my surgery. My husband got me some children’s Tylenol to rub on and it did nothing. Things like swishing rum or salt water just make it hurt more. A cold compress did nothing for it. Heat makes it worse. And my regular dentist is away on vacation so I have to see someone else and I couldn’t get in until Tuesday so I don’t know what’s going to happen but it hurts so much and I just want to be able to sleep and eat food (I had barely any dinner because I can only chew on one side and I have to do the water thing right after I swallow; at least I’m not hungry right now). Also, I have drunk something like 12 or 14 cups of water today.

:) MaryAnn

Oh, that sounds awful! Is there an emergency dental clinic or something that could help? Even perhaps a hospital ER? They could likely prescribe an antibiotic. Because if it’s an infection, it may be wise to deal with it as something urgent, and get it looked at as soon as possible.

I hope you get relief soon!

Maybe a topical anesthetic like Orajel would help? I don’t know if that would hurt it if it was infected though. My wisdom teeth are coming in (well, have been for the past… two years or so?) and when they bother me that’s what I use. Careful though – if you poke at sore gums with your tongue (I am guilty of that) it will make the tip of your tongue go numb as well, which is a weird sensation. You can get it at Shoppers Drug Mart, usually.

I also hope you feel better soon! Tooth and gum pain is awful.

Deepest sympathy.I hope the pain goes away soon.

Try clove oil? You can get that at natural food stores, and it’s a good topical oral anesthetic. I hope you can get to a dentist ASAP.

:) kaizenkaren

That sounds horrible! MaryAnn is correct. If it’s an infection you should go to the ER so they can start you on an antibiotic. Tuesday is too long to wait.

I hope you feel better soon.

Could be an abscess, which can, in addition to being painful, badly affect your whole health through blood poisoning. If you can’t get to a dentist I recommend ER too.

Thanks everyone. I seem to have turned the corner. It’s not hurting as much now as it was. Fingers crossed that I’ll get sleep tonight; last night I went to bed but was sipping water every minute or two and had to go to the bathroom a lot (naturally).

I’m going to see how the pain is tonight and tomorrow, and I might make my husband take me to Urgent Care or the ER tomorrow.

Thursday was pretty good. Got a scene written in The Wolf & the Bear. Had shift tonight, was a good time.

Remembered a funny story from when I was a teen:

This one time, Dad (Anglican priest, remember) was baptizing twins.

He took the first child from her father and said, “Name this child?” as always, and the father looked at the mother and the two of them had to figure out which kid it was because they dressed the girls the same, the girls were about two years old, and they’d taken their differently-coloured hair ribbons out. “Cassie took off her shoes,” said the father. Except they were both in their stocking feet.

So Dad baptized one Carla and the other Cassie, but we still don’t know whether he used the correct names.

Wednesday was a great day! Got lots done. Made two trips to the barn with cardboard for recycling.

Do you then take the recycling somewhere or do you reuse the cardboard?
I have much cardboard to recycle. Pick up for paper is every other week. The past 3 pick-ups were canceled because of weather, Christmas and weather.

:) karalianne

Supposedly the recycling will go to the recycling place but that hasn’t happened yet. We have to take it ourselves, obviously. :)

:) EvaC

My house has three garbage-can-sized recycle containers, and we fill them every week, and recycle pickup is every other week. We end up with large box towers in the kitchen waiting until we can put them out on the curb without their getting rained on for days.
