Middle of the Night Ramblings

Here it is, 1:30 in the morning as I start to write this, and here I am still awake. I'm not at home, and I forgot to pack some Melatonin, so I've got a double strike against me. I'm in an unfamiliar bed that is most definitely different from mine and I don't have my wedge pillow that I have at home, so laying flat means I can't breathe right. Normally in this situation I just stack up several pillows so that I'm propped up in a semi-sitting position, but for whatever reason it's not working tonight. I'm going to be really super tired in the morning, and I can tell all ready. And, I'm still feeling the tooth extraction and I didn't take anything for it earlier because it wasn't hurting and I thought I'd take it a little later and then forgot. Now it is, and I don't have a clue where any cups are so I can't take anything for that. For some reason, the whole left side of my face is hurning, and I don't think that's normal, but it's really hard to actually pinpoint where the center of the pain is so I'm not sure if it's from the extraction site or from the broken tooth in front of it. Somehow I think it's the tooth in front because there's some swelling in the gum area. I've been trying really hard to watch what I eat, but no matter what I do I've managed to either get something in the hole or else start biting down on the other tooth.

I had planned to be out of town today, not for any special reason, but because I'd made plans quite a while ago. Then I realized that I had a thing to do for work, and I wasn't able to leave as early as I had originally thought I would. I did that and then got picked up later in the day. I had a great meal though. I had Chicken Wellington with extra mushrooms and a twice-baked potato. It was extremely soft and good, and it really filled me up. Once we finished eating, we went to Giggles Comedy Club. They had three guys perform, and I guess one or two of them actually have a show on the Comedy Channel or something. So overall I've had a good evening, but my night isn't turning out so well. At home I'd be able to take some pills, grab an ice pack, whatever. Here though, I'm pretty much stuck. Oh wait! I had a glass of water earlier that I used for a warm salt water rince. If it's where I left it I might just be able to get it again and get some water out of the bathroom. I'll have to check that out and see if it's still there.

Well, I think I'm going to go post this and then read my friends page. I haven't done that today, (or should I say yesterday), so I've got a days worth of entries to read. Later.

    I did not like these questions today! So, the fact that I got my second 10/10 of the week was definitely a nice surprise. Here are the questions.
