Today wasn’t a very good day for me. I couldn’t sleep all night and then I was up a long time during the day unable to catch a nap. I sat at my computer and watched youtube videos on zentangles. I tried to copy some of them but my hands were really shaky today and they don’t look so good. I do so much better when I work them in pencil and then paint them in like I did with the tree. Maybe tomorrow I will do some more. I want to start a book to keep track of the zentangle patterns I learn.
I also knit a few swatches trying to find a suitable yarn in my stash to make a dog sweater for blue. She needs something to keep her warm when she goes out to go potty. I also need to make her some booties. She’s lost most of hers. Last year I had to use those little stretchy gloves you can buy really cheap. I just wrapped rubber bands around the top to keep them on. She looked so funny….. like a 4-legged seal or something.
Well I’m still taking the antibiotic for the mysterious abscess that doesn’t seem to be related to a tooth. The endodontist’s office hasn’t called yet to schedule an appointment. Around 1 pm or so my mouth started throbbing and it swelled up. I took some more ibuprofen which seems to help with this and went to lay down. I zonked out until 10 pm! I was sleeping so deep and dreaming some weird stuff about bombs in alarm clocks. I dreamt that I had this clock with a bomb in it running around trying to find a place to toss it but there were people everywhere….. I woke up totally freaked out. Well the swelling is down now but it is still bothering me a bit. Of course it is Friday again. This thing all started last Friday evening and I had to wait until Monday to call the dentist. On Monday I’ll call the endodontist’s office to see what’s up. I bet there is something going on with the tooth right next to this abscess and it’s the one the endodontist had to re-do the root canal on but that was a long time ago. I’m really worried I’m going to lose that tooth and have to have a bridge. I really don’t want to pay for one of those or deal with something like that. UGH!
