Since finishing The Passion of the Purple Plumeria, I have been struggling to get through a single book. First, there was Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right, which as anyone that has read this blog in the past week and a half knows, I absolutely hated it. Then, I decided to re-read the first book in the Jaz Parks series, but I just couldn’t get into it for some reason. Finally, I thought I had come out of it with Deadly Vows by Brenda Joyce, which I loved when I first read it last year. However, I’ve been a bit distracted for the last few days, and I haven’t felt much like reading. Instead, I binge watched the last seasons of Hart of Dixie, New Girl, and Once Upon a Time.
You see on Friday, I found out that I need to have all 4 of my Wisdom teeth removed. Yes, I said all 4. Ouch. All along I thought I was having a really bad sinus headache–occasionally, I would feel pressure under my eyes (on my cheekbone, I guess), which usually means my sinuses are acting up, but I definitely didn’t think it was my teeth. On Thursday, however, I ran my tongue over my teeth while lying down from the pain, and I was jolted by a sharp pain in my mouth. After searching my insurance’s website for a dentist within close proximity to me, I ended up with an appointment on Friday morning (my first since I was 8 years old–I was not a very good patient, so my parents gave up taking me). Within a half hour, I found out that I needed to have 4 teeth out, and secured a consultation with an oral surgeon for this coming Tuesday. Boy, is that going to be fun, especially considering my fear of (a) dentists and (b) needles.
I have a feeling I won’t be reading anything for awhile, so be warned, I doubt this blog will be updated very often. More than likely, I will continue my binge t.v. viewing (I’ve got discs 1 and 2 of the second season of Chuck coming on Tuesday, not to mention a slew of shows and movies available on Netflix).
