Winter Greens & Wisdom Teeth

Yesterday morning I got my wisdom teeth out, It hasn't been too bad. I'm doing my best to keep up on my pain medication and I'm attempting to keep myself busy so I don't get a crazy case of Cabin fever. A Major Video is going out of business this week in town so the other day I went and bought the majority of Wes Anderson's films to keep me entertained. Today I am swelled up like a chipmunk, it's a rather silly picture. 
The last couple days it's been f-f-f-freezing in Springfield! It's way below zero with the windshield, so I guess it's a good few days to be stuck inside. I've constantly been craving that Spring air and outside adventures again. The other day I went to one of our local green houses in town, Wickman's Gardens and got a few succulents for a sun tea jar I thrifted months ago with a friend! I love the way it turned out. In-door Plants and flowers are such a nice way to keep from going bonkers during the winter season. It's always so nice to see the way the morning light reflects off of your window greens. I hope your week is going well so far, my friends!

  1. Getting your wisdoms pulled out is not fun! I just got 4 of mine pulled 2 weeks ago - I found there was no pain; the only downside that I complained about is not being able to eat anything I want. I have a bad case of burrito cravings all the time, so that really didn't help me!

    I hope you have a speedy recovery, Sarah!

  8. Getting wisdom teeth out sucksss. I had five teeth pulled out at once. All four wisdom teeth and a baby tooth that was still in when I was seventeen! I was out of school for three weeks. Not fun at all. Rest up!

  11. These photos are brilliant - aren't succulents just the most wonderful thing! And Wes Anderson sounds like a great distraction from the pain of wisdom teeth removal!
    You have a beautiful blog,

  12. How are you now, Sarah? I'm surprised that you're handling the extraction very well. Did you feel any unbearable pain? Having your wisdom tooth extracted is a better choice rather than experience recurring pains. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Yikes! That looked like it hurt a lot, though I'd assume with proper and professional care, it should all be smooth-sailing enough to not warrant much wincing, given how essential and necessary it is. Nice to know it wasn't much in your case. Just keep up with those medications, and you'll be all set.

  14. I remember when I got my wisdom teeth taken out a few years ago. I was one of the lucky people because I had 3 of them already grown in so they were easy to remove. I could have kept them, but I didn't really want to because I have bad teeth anyways.


  15. Lovely photos of Succulents. They make everything look more homey. I have one in almost every corner of my house. They are just so relaxing to look at. Anyway, I can't believe you had to experience having your wisdom teeth pulled out. Post-extraction is the worst feeling in the world, if you ask me. I hope you start feeling better soon, though. It'll be good to finally be off of the medications. Good luck!

  17. Before removing a wisdom tooth, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. A general anesthetic may be used, especially if several or all of your wisdom teeth will be removed at the same time.

  18. Wisdom teeth can be problematic if they fail to “erupt” properly. This can happen when they develop crooked, underneath your gum lines, or push up against other teeth. During a consultation at our dental office, located in Montreal, a professional X-ray can expose the health of your wisdom teeth.
