When All You-Know-What Breaks Loose

Is it great how once you’re like, “Okay, I got this!” everything hits the fan. Or maybe that’s just me. Yesterday the house was clean, laundry was folded, Jack was in a great mood, sunshine and rainbows and puppies all around. Hooray!

And then today. I finally made it into the dentist, just to get that sore tooth checked out. “I’m sure it’s just sinuses! No biggie! I just want a quick x-ray to make sure!”

Um, not so much. It’s an abscess, requiring a full round of antibiotics and a root canal. Except that my OB doesn’t feel that it’s safe to do that before Baby #2 is here, so we’re hoping and praying that the antibiotics calm down the inflammation (& pain) for a few months. Lawdy.

Then someone rang the doorbell twice and beat on the door this afternoon, waking Jack up from his nap. And the icing on the cake was when Brian was getting Jack ready for bed tonight and Jack suddenly (and with impressive projection) threw his dinner up ALL OVER the place. He has no fever and 2 minutes later was running around and playing, so hopefully it was just a fluke.

Soooo… short post tonight. I had a mushy dinner: Baked potato and soup.

The soup was a Pinterest recipe for Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili. The ingredients were some of my faves- black beans, chicken, cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, Rotel- so I had high hopes for this one. It actually was pretty good, but SPICY. And salty. This was definitely not a toddler-friendly dish (Jack had some pretty tasty Annie’s mac & cheese). Next time I might just use a can of diced tomatoes instead of the Rotel to tone it down a little.

Okay, I’m raising the white flag and heading to bed before the dryer bursts into flames or a tornado touches down in our yard. Night!

(On a happier and slightly less whiny note, Cutting for Stone is SO good. I was up until 1am plowing through it. Highly recommend!)

(Oh, and you know what’s always awesome? Babies in glasses. Or toddlers in glasses. Enjoy!)

Hehe. Night! For reals this time.

  1. I stumbled upon your blog on Erin’s blog and this post is totally something I can relate to! Sorry about the tooth pain—I had something similar when I was pregnant with Meaghan and it sucked waiting all that time to get it fixed. Good luck!

    Well, dang! I’m actually making this tonight. Pretty sure I repinned it from you. Maybe I’ll take your advice and try diced tomaters instead!

    I thought I’d already read yesterday’s blog for you but guess not – that being said, so glad that I did because I am planning on making the chili tomorrow and now I know to cut down the salt and spicy stuff. Sorry about your tooth; I’ll say prayers for the antibiotic to do it’s thang (and fast!)
