My kingdom for a crown

The long dreaded crown dentist appointment happened yesterday. I had happily put it out of my mind until it arrived. My biggest beef is the cost of course, my insurance will cover half, and I'm always a bit nervose about a procedue I've never experienced before.

Today my jaw feels like it's gone a few rounds with a prize fighter and I've been advised to chew on the non-temp crown side. I now have to get a little creative with food. Biting into stuff doesn't appeal to me due to sore jaw. I had Carnation instant breakfast this morning. I'm attempting a not horrendously chunky chili for lunch and itty bitty bites. Thankfully my dentist has put a rush on the permanent crown. My original appointment was the 27th for that but she's moved it up to the 20th.

I don't think I've ever eaten this slow before. On the way home from the dentist I swung by DG for a milkshake as I was still frozen and had pre-planned that. I walk in and all I can smell is hamburgers....cruel how that happens. Next Saturday after the permanent crown I am so getting a burger.

It will be interesting to see how my quasy liquid diet will be effect weigh in on Saturday.

I've read more in the 4 Day Win book by Martha Beck, I really like this book. There are parts that make you laugh out loud. It's really interesting to learn more about the thought patterns behind dealing with weight loss as opposed to just the eat this and do that advice you typically see.

Watched Survivor last night and thought for a heartbeat that Ozzie might be kicked off. Now there's been two injuries. I did find it interesting in the closing credits that the other votes were for Eric..what does that mean?

I have a school focused and food planning weekend ahead and a hair appointment on Saturday.

Hoping for a loss on Saturay.

Happy Friday everybody!

Yuck, I had my first crown down last year right around this time of year. The temporary was ok...I could tell it ws temporary and it didn't fit well. When you get your permanent crown on, you may still have a bit of tenderness around the gums, for me it lasted a good week after the permanent crown. Did you have a root canal too?
