Yesterday I had a root canal.

My mouth still hurts like the dickens.  I've decided I'm completely done with carbonation.

The doctor asked me if I'd like a shot of long lasting anesthesia since I shouldn't take ibuprofen while pregnant.  I said yes.  Five hours of numbness later I was rethinking my decision.  Five hours past that and I was wishing I was still numb. 

From 1 a.m. until 2 a.m. I sat in bed with my face throbbing in pain wishing I could just go back to sleep and not feel it.

I better cut back on the peanut butter M&Ms too.

Yesterday the washing machine was fixedHallelujah glorious day!!  But when the Sears' repairman was leaving he said, "Don't use it until tomorrow morning so the glue can really set."


Is that 12:01 a.m. tomorrow morning?  Or is that like 8 a.m.?  Cuz you know I've got five loads of laundry waiting and my sheets haven't been washed in three weeks. 

So at 6 a.m. when I got up to take some extra-strength Tylenol, I remembered my fixed washing machine.  I started a load and sat in front of it for at least twenty minutes watching it do its thing.

And I decided, I could survive without internet and phone and enjoy the prairie life, have my own cow and a few chickens, but I CANNOT live without my washing machine.

Funny - root canals never bothered me. I'd much rather have one than a regular cavity. Of course, I am always on the gas when I get the root done.

I've never had a root canal. I really don't want one either.

I can't live without my washing machine either. The thought of having to do laundry by hand it the stuff of nightmares. If I had to do laundry by hand, I think I would have to run away to some nudist colony, because I refuse to do laundry by hand.

Of course, if I ran away to a nudist colony, I'd have to gouge my eyes out first. Because looking at middle-aged overweight nudies is just gross.

Sorry about the tooth. I agree with you 100% If I lived long ago without a washing machine my clothes would stink.
