So, I lied.

The root canal itself-- a breeze.

The aftermath of said root canal-- sheer hell.

I can't decide if my mouth sucked worse before or after the root canal.

Before: Sharp nerve-like/ish pains radiating throughout my entire mouth. Not localized in any way. Woke me up in the middle of the night. Sucked a$$.

After: Localized dull ache in the upper right hand corner of my mouth. Very localized in every way. Can't chew without dull ache. Wakes me up in the middle of the night. Sucks ass.

See, it's hard to determine. Both suck-- and both are totally different pain-- yet equally excruciating.

Of course I read all about it, and they say that if your mouth hurt before your root canal, it sure as shit was going to hurt after it (excuse my french- I've been on advil for about a month now).

I felt crappy (tooth related) all weekend and considered calling my dental surgeon. I didn't- I felt bad about screwing up his weekend.

I finally called today and they are starting me on a round of penicillin. I get to take four today. Sweet. I haven't taken an antibiotic in about 15 yrs, so lets hope this goes well.

In other news, despite the shiteous tooth, I did manage to enjoy my weekend. On Friday, the fiance decided to be super romantic and forego wings and beer for a trip to the Christmas tree shop.

We had a tough time deciding between real or fake (we both prefer real- we just live in a small apartment inhabited by two wire-eating cats). We went with the fake, came home, ordered in chinese food, put together our tree and cuddled. It was marvelous.

On Saturday, we headed down to Northern Va to party like one-year-olds for his goddaughter's first birthday. We bought her a huge bouncy castle which was quite the hit.

We finished off the afternoon at the mall (sheer hell- nothing is worse than the mall during Christmas).

We were supposed to go to a party on Saturday night, but my tooth was aching worse than ever and we decided to stay in and watch a movie.

Sunday, we watched football, all the livelong day. I'd like to congratulate my other boyfriend's for winning the AFC North. You go boys.

I'll try to post pictures of the tree soon, but my camera appears to have taken a turn for the worse and every picture comes up looking fuzzy and/or dark.

Oh NO! I was afraid this may happen. After my root canal, I had an infection in the tooth and had to go on antibiotics too! I'm not even going to tell you about the other things that happened to my tooth after that (I know how you are a hypochondriac)! Hope it gets better soon!
