In other news, there has not been much else to report. I have been under the weather and battling a massive sinus infection. Last Wednesday I went to bed afraid that I was getting a toothache. The last time this happened was over ten years ago but required a root canal. Scared that would be the case again I was actually proactive and went and saw a German dentist on Thursday afternoon. You want to talk about frightening? Think large German scraping around in your mouth, pounding on your teeth that are throbbing and the grand finale.......touching each of my teeth with dry ice to see how I responded. Not pretty. Only to announce that there was nothing wrong with my teeth (besides the other small cavity that needed to be filled a later date). I left having been told to be less zealous with my self bleaching and with not one, but TWO other appointments, for cleaning and filling. Sigh.
By Friday it became obvious that I was suffering from a bad sinus infection and that the toothache was just the first sign that it was coming. Of course, this was on Friday AFTER all the doctors closed for the weekend. Thankfully Germans aren't much for Labor Day and I was able to see one on Monday. I'm now on antibiotics three times a day for TEN days. To think that I actually look forward to taking those pills in hopes of getting closer to feeling normal again. It was not the best holiday weekend in our house however the pain was eased by the kickoff of college football. Only the greatest time of year!
Evans quite enjoyed watching the Dawgs play despite a concerning performance. UVA and Ole Miss pulled a W for the first week so it was a good day.
Deaner left this morning for Belgium for work. I thought he was in Brussels and was confused when he was describing to me where his hotel was. I could not place it in my mind despite dozens of trips there. And that is because he is not in Brussels, rather Mons, and clearly I wasn't paying attention when he told me that. Off to bathe my dirty child and put him to bed. Stay tuned for school news tomorrow! Happy Tuesday!
