A Little Of This…

filed under: Miscellaneous on February 26, 2011

I cant believe its been over a week since I last posted.

I feel like it was just yesterday!

That being said, let me share a bit.

I am now about 35 weeks pregnant.  I saw a picture of myself and was like, “WHO is that outrageously fat person?”

Um, me.

I have a toothache.  About a year ago a portion of my farthest back left tooth fell off and its been slowly disintegrating away ever since.  I have been treating it naturally… raw garlic, clove oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, and charcoal.  I have been able to tolerate the pain, but generally speaking, its always there.  Hitting my third trimester I was suddenly in excruciating pain day and night.

And being preggers means no drugs.

Yay me.

Finally went to the dentist and (long story short) they are just going to take out the tooth.  No repairs can be made.

Did I mention ever since I started treating teeth issues naturally that I encouraged my husband to cancel our dental insurance?  Yeah.  Should be a fun bill.

I am officially homeschooling Colton.  We started curriculum from Alpha Omega Publications, through a recommendation from Christy.  I really like it as it is detailed!  Tells me exactly what I need to do and teach and when.

Colton is not such a fan.  I really need to do more research ito how to make school more fun for him… as I don’t seem to have any creative energy left in me lately.

My favorite 50mm lens that I use for EVERYTHING died.  I panicked and called my husband in a tizzy and was totally incoherent.

Apparently I am addicted to my camera.

He came home with the most beautiful Canon 2.8 100mm macro lens.  Its like… gorgeous.  Wish I could take a picture of it. 😉


Macro lens’ are good for close ups of eyes.  My favorite thing to photograph.

I have so many things I want to share… about life and love and faith and family… but never seem to find the time to get written down. (Does anyone else sorta use thier blog as an online journal??)

Oh, and we still need to think of a baby name.

At least we know its a boy.

    awwww…a boy 🙂 Isn’t life ironic with canceling the dental insurance – DOH!! We don’t carry any either (knock on wood) – found that it was cheaper with there being only 3 of us not to get the plan – assuming we all stay healthy. Have not had one for 10+ years. Plus that way we can see whatever dentist we want to see.
    Hope you can get that tooth yanked ASAP to spare you the constant pain…

    when I look at your photos I’m convinced I need to get a “real” camera someday. The point and shoot with the red eyes/fuzziness just doesn’t even come close!!

    I really need to get on here more- 35 weeks already and you know its a boy! man, I’m behind with this stuff. But congrats! Cant wait to see him!

    You certainly have had a lot going on! I hope your tooth feels better soon. (I so feel what you are going through… I’m having tooth/gum surgery next week. No fun!)
    Hugs to you,
    p.s. I’m sure you are a beautiful pregnant mama. 🙂

    awwww! I feel your pain all the way! The same happened to me when I was pregnant (my baby boy is now 4mnths old) – actually two teeth started disintegrating. I’m afraid they’ll have to put them out for me too. I’m still breastfeeding and I will be, exclusively, until he’ll be 6mnths so I’m praying and crossing my fingers that the pain holds off until then. So I could get medication. I’m such a baby when it comes to dental things 🙁
    Yeah, so about the name? one of my boys is called Noah. I still think it’s one of the greatest names out there!
    Hang in there! There’s been a great journey and now you should enjoy what’s left of it with great passion, you know you’ll miss it afterwards! 😉
    Congrats on your new macro lens! Spring is right around the corner so watch out for all those great bugs and buds coming out!

    Yep, my blog is DEFINITELY my online journal!! And – we need a preggo pic!! =-D
    I’m so sorry about your tooth. That sounds really painful and bad! =-( We had cancelled dental insurance and have treated stuff naturally, too…but haven’t dealt with anything harsh. I am actually on the lookout for a natural-minded dentist in our area and want to take the kiddos soon. Just for a checkup.
    Sorry about your old lens – but yay for the new one! That rawks.
    And congrats on your HSing journey! You guys will have a lotta fun w/that!

    Whoa, I stumbled across this looking at your baking blog! But I can relate, my back tooth broke off and since I am breastfeeding I don’t want to get it fixed since I am avoiding drugs also. I actually did a filling that broke off without novacaine that is how obsessed I am but fixing a broken tooth or pulling it seems too much for me. I actually want to eventually have it pulled but dentist said crown. I am going to push for pulling it so it can be dealt with once and for all. In the meantime I am drinking LOTS of chlorophyl and the infection is sooo much better. And lots of prayer!

    Aidan IS a really cool name. I’m just sayin’.

  • Alyssa P says:

    I don’t know your last name, but Geoffrey, Grady, Byron, Judson, Levi and Nelson are some options. They are all pretty classic boy names.
