What I eat.

With my recent injury I've discovered I'm prone to wallowing in self-pity. I would do terrible with actually having to endure a severe injury that had permanent side affects. I am SO annoyed at this entire thing. My lip and nose are HUGE.... but there are no other signs that my face hit concrete. This may sound good, but it just means that when people look at me they just think I have an extremely fat nose and a funny looking lip, which I've also decided is bruised so it looks like I have a mustache.... Yippie!

Back to the topic: What I eat.

Let's see, what did I eat today?

Breakfast: Oatmeal from yesterday and then Andrea and I shared a jar of baby food, peaches I think it was.
Lunch: Yogurt and cream cheese pie. (See, yesterday in a fit of self-pity I made myself a cream cheese pie which is basically cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and lemon juice. I am now proceeding to eat the entire thing because it doesn't hurt me.)
Dinner: more cream cheese pie and a chocolate milkshake.

Sounds healthy huh? I was doing good until lunchtime when I realized I didn't want to squish food down my throat anymore and got grouchy about the whole thing. I bought a new flavor of yogurt but I'm pretty tired of that too. Mashed potatoes are even getting old and they are my all time favorite. I want to chew something. It's only been two days of no food. I'm being a sissy. I need to get over this... I have a long way to go. I'll try better tomorrow and report back.

What made me feel better was when I received flowers from all the other moms at school. :) I am loved. They all pitched in and had some flowers sent to the house for me! AND a friend from Paul's work also sent me flowers too! I haven't had flowers delivered to me in two years and now I get two big bouquets in just two days!! So girls, if you want some flowers delivered just smash your teeth into concrete.

Off to bed I go. There is always a small hope in the back of my mind that I will wake up the next day and my face will be normal again. :) For some reason I've decided that I heal better while I'm sleeping.

Fine, here are pictures. Say something mean and I will ban you from my blog forever. First one is me in the dentist chair after she glued a wire to my teeth. Smiling because I hadn't yet seen what she had really done to me. Second picture is me, three minutes ago...

And. All three kids went to the dentist today. Their teeth are all perfect. Even Scotty had his turn. He was very brave. Good kids with good teeth. I take a little credit for that. :)

And. There's a chance my nose is broken. HA! Nothing I can do for it anyways. Sierra had a doctor's appointment today too so I snuck in some questions about my nose. Sierra is fine... a clogged saliva duct sometimes causes a ball to form on the inside of her cheek.

Seriously Tara, you are a real trooper!! Cut yourself some slack, and wallow a bit! You are allowed! If it makes you feel any better, you don't look as bad as you probably feel!!! If I think of anything yummy but requires little chewing, I will be sure to send it your way!!

You really don't look bad at all. Listening to you I was expecting it to look worse. Pumpkin pie is soft and I guess you could say it is a vegetable. Love you!

Oh man, reading your blogs it sounds like that must have really hurt! (and still does I'm sure) You really don't look bad though!
