Blog Post #999: Dry Socket

They said it would be over in half an hour (it wasn’t). They said I wouldn’t feel a think (I did). They said I wouldn’t need stitches (got those). They said it will heal quickly (it didn’t) and that I’d be eating solid foods the next day (8 days later).

Due to a complicated extraction, I developed a condition called dry socket. Not fun. I was pretty out of it and grumpy last week, hence my lack of blog posts lately.

On Friday I was finally able to chew. Hooray!

Weekend thrills: baking cookies for my sister, girl talk, shopping, scoring a deal on designer sunglasses, naps, Vitamin D (aka sunshine), Starbucks, coral colored makeup, antique fair finds, and finally getting to eat solid foods.

I've been attending the Sacramento Antique Faire pretty regularly lately. I especially love the people who put extra time into their displays (check out my photos from last month). There were two booths in particular that struck my fancy — both appeared to be manned by a twenty-something crowd.

My finds included a Mid-century magazine stand (only $5!)

AND a new S&P shaker set for my collection. I couldn't resist.

Yesterday I had lunch at Suzie Burger, a 1960s Orbit/Philips 66 Gas Station that has been converted into a 50s style diner. Their cheeseburgers are pretty good and just about everything else (cheese steak, foot long hot dogs, fries, and shakes) are excellent. Fun atmosphere too.

I have some fun things planned to celebrate my 1,000th post. It should be happening in the next couple of days, I'm still catching up after a week of not feeling so hot.

See you then!

i love your mag rack - what a steal for $5!

Amy, when you said you were having that thing pulled, I thought to myself, "I hope she doesn't get a dry socket!"
I've had TWO so I can relate, bless your heart!

Hang in there!

(BTW, I've been a fan since the first Pimpstitch post!)

Ewww I got dry sockets when I had my wisdom teeth out. No fun at all!

I've never been to the Sacramento Antique Faire but it is definitely on my list!
