I am sitting here writing this while the feeling slowly creeps back into my face. I had a tooth pulled this morning. I was extremely impressed with my dentist. He made sure I was comfortable, and it took him almost no time to get the tooth out. Always a plus in my book. I have had more than one tooth extracted that didn't want to leave my mouth. Those are the worst. Those are also the worst to heal from. I am keeping my fingers crossed that since it didn't really put up a terrible fight, it will heal quickly.
I think Chase is still trying to get over his cold. It's 12:00 pm and he's still asleep. I know with him being sick rest and sleep is the best thing for him. I told Jerry I'm just going to let him sleep until he wakes up. He should be in a good mood when that finally happens. I know I'm still trying to recover from my bout with that cold. Most of my symptoms are gone with the exception of this lingering nasty cough. I hate coughing.
I seriously need to spend more time on my blog. It seems like I do good for a bit, then I let it fall to the wayside. I don't like that. I created this blog to keep track of everything. Seems like more often than not I don't blog, but I do write religiously in my paper journal. Go figure. Definitely something I need to work on.
Jean'-Luc is showing steady improvement with his school work. Occasionally it's a fight to get him to do his homework, but at least his grades are showing the effort that is being made. His English teacher is amazing. I really like her a lot. His packet (grammar, spelling, and reading worksheets for the week) accidentally got thrown away, by him, before his teacher saw it. Instead of sending him to the office for an incomplete assignment like she could have, she sent it home with him to be redone. I appreciate that more than she will ever know, I know she didn't have to give him the second chance. Luckily she told me on the phone when we talked last week that since she realizes Jerry and I are caring, involved parents she will help us get him on track anyway she can. So far she has kept her word.
I am married to such an amazing man. Even after 8 years together the little things he does for me continues to surprise me. I know that's a good thing. I am reminded on a daily basis what a lucky lady I am. I thank the dear Lord everyday that he made that awesome man all mine. I look forward to us spending many, many, many more years together. I can't wait to see what happens. The ride so far has been amazing, and it just keeps getting better. Even though I didn't think it was possible I love him more with every passing day. He completes me in ways I never could have imagined.
Wow this post is longer than I would have believed. I guess that's why I don't blog on pain meds. LOL. More later from this Funny Farm that is our life.
