Lent Day 11-12


The last few days have been very rough.  I didn’t realize this until well after the surgery that days 3-5 are the roughest days of recovery when it comes to the wisdom tooth extraction.  I was in so much pain that I thought that I had a dry socket.  The pain was making me nauseous and unable to sleep.  The medication increased the nausea and made me sleepy.  Not only that, but my husband is going away for a few weeks on a business trip, so I’m here by myself, very sick, and with two kids.  Luckily, I have my daughter, who even though she is only nine, steps up and is amazing especially with my son.

We did the Seaside School’s 5K today.  It is a race where the proceeds go towards a one-room school house in South Walton County.  I didn’t run it at all.  Instead I walked with my mom and daughter.  It was cool walking with three different generations of women.  At the end of the race we get a Vera Bradley shopping bag.  I love going down to Scenic 30-A.  It’s one of the quieter beaches, and there are a lot of boutique stores and things to see down there.  So between naps, nausea and walking, it was a rough weekend.  I am hoping that next weekend, I’ll be able to run again.
