My appointment was at Noon, and the entire ordeal plus travel to and from his office took about an hour and fifteen minutes. It went okay, as well as having a molar pulled can go. For some reason this was more traumatic than the last one I had taken out, and for a few minutes I was afraid I would cry. I felt the same way driving home, but told myself to hold it together until I got in the house and then I could cry. By then I no longer felt the need. I'm still numb and my cheek is so swollen I look worse than a chipmunk! And I'm so hungry! Normally I have had 3 small meals by noon, but this morning just had my bowl of fruit. I think I will have ice cream for lunch and a protein shake later, but I'll have to wait until the anesthetic wears off. I go back next week for a checkup, and then need to make an appointment to get one pulled on the other side. It is a root canal with gold crown.
Just finished Bob Ross' season 5 videos, and the more I watch him the more I like his style - I don't care how dated it might be, or how "you will never grow as an artist if you paint the Bob Ross method", etc. I also like his style of teaching as he goes along, and after watching 5 series (x 13 videos each) I've learned as much from him as from any other source. The supplies for oil painting are costly, and I've already spent enough on the acrylics, but I'll assess the situation when the classes I've paid for have run out.
The mailman just rang the doorbell and left me a package containing a Bob Ross book I ordered. (The Best of the Joy of Painting). I glanced through it and think I'm going to love having it to read, and then as a reference. I can see a faint glimpse of oil paints in my future!
We are starting a week of warmer weather - into the 80's, which may go a bit higher. At least I know it will be temporary and we'll go back to some cooler weather.
Hunger is getting to me, and it's stronger than pain, so I think I'll go see what I can drum up. I doubt if I will have anything more to add today, and if I do I will just add an Update. I wish I could nap but I'm not sleepy in the least!
