This is the first tooth I've lost since I had to have four pulled for braces when I was a kid. The thought of losing it bothers me much more than the reality, although I'm still numb. I'm writing this in the twenty minutes off of the icepack (a bag of frozen peas). I haven't been bleeding very much yet, but I'll have to see what happens when the numbness wears off and I can try to eat. Didn't eat much breakfast this morning. I'm getting hungry but I can't figure out how to eat. I could probably go for days without eating and it wouldn't do any harm.
I'm still struggling with the paper, but I've made great strides. I kept writing around the point of it, because I wasn't sure what the point was. I think I finally got it. I hope to have it done by Thursday, but the icepack doesn't help.
I am taking time this morning to catch up with everyone else's blog. In my next twenty minutes off the icepack I'll write some comments.
