That toothache

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a really bad toothache. Last week while we were at the theatre enjoying the show of “Guardians of the Galaxy” my tooth started to throb. While eating popcorn on the right side of my mouth the left side started to really hurt bad. I didn’t have any ibuprofen or aleeve and neither did the attendants. So I sat through the entire show applying pressure on my now extremely painful tooth. I was afraid if I let off the pressure the pain would shoot through the roof.

Unfortunately, I endure two hours of throbbing pain in my jaw and a slight headache by the first hour passed. All I could think of was a cone of ice cream 🍦🍨 as the time slowly crawled though the film was fun and entertaining, my seat was starting to get really uncomfortable. I didn’t want to get up and excuse myself infront of all the people to walk past them to the counter to get a cup of ice cream. So I simmered in pain and waited patiently until the show ended —

Finally we made it home and I immediately took ibuprofen and was lucky to have slept through the night. However, when I woke up I had this extremely weird feeling on the left side of my face just under my cheek. I looked in the mirror and the left side of my face looked like a small mountain ⛰. It had swollen to the size of a tomato and it’s on my jaw — where my toothache had been. 

This is how my face looked like when I woke up that Monday morning. I went on working at home and then three hours had passed my face started feeling uncomfortable.

My face looked bigger by the hour. I could feel the infection has gone down my jaw line and started to spread towards my nodes. So I rushed to the ER and saw our favourite attending doctor. He prescribe me with a higher dose of penicillin for ten days-three times daily. I couldn’t wait to take the meds amd start feeling better. I could feel the infection eating away my flesh and all I want to do is flush it out with some penicillin. I couldn’t wait to get feeling better again.

Though today I feel somewhat better, I can still feel that infection eating at my flesh.

I hope your weekend is better than mine mates. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and thank you for stopping by.

Hello New Year 2017

Hello Everyone!!

Gosh it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything in here. Honestly, i’ve been very busy with things living here in the countryside. There’s so much to explore even until today. Since our move here about four months ago, we really haven’t ventured the east.. west.. south and north just yet.

Due to this harsh weather it kept us at close proximity in venturing the unknown vast space out there. We are having such a wonderful time experiencing this great countryside living. The air is fresh & crisp every morning til noon…then theres the drop of temperature in the late afternoon. I truly wouldn’t like to be caught driving at night since there’s no street lights on the road. The road really plays tricks on you when your car’s headlight is the only source of illumination on the road. I feel like i’m in the film “Riddick” when they were walking in the darkness & their only source of light were those tubelights from some battery pack-

Needless to say, I will be posting some of my quilting projects soon.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a fabulous day and New Years everyone!!

A special birdy-day

So before we celebrate xmas holidays we first have a birdy-day for my now eleven years old Jupinxter. So far she’s been having great anxiety of what she wants to do for her big-day.  Finally, she thought of just a low key family dinner. So Red Lobster we all went and enjoyed our time. 

The timing was right when we arrived. There was no waiting to be seated. Of course we had a closed quartered area of 4 groups of party tables and 2 booths. We had it good. The family we sat next to were preparing to leave, so we were left the only table for about 10 minutes until elderly couples were seated behind us in one of the small booths. 

We all had fun and our meal was delicious, as always.

Her birdy meal- Ultimate Feast Platter. She did finish it all as well 😀

My Admirals Feast, truly scrumptious.

Her one favourite treat, lava cake & ice cream 😀🌟

With aunti Rhea and her Shrimp Feast

Brother’s favourite popcorn shrimp meal

It truly was a great day and dinner with family. A fabulous surprise for the birthday girl to have dad home in time for her birthday dinner and holiday. Leaving again day after xmas.

We’ve managed this few months just ok. Today truly was splendid and kids had no idea dad was home for 5 days in time for the holiday. Though he was still away, it was a great surprise. 

Not only that, the couple behind us secretly paid $50 of our bill. It truly was unexpected and we were so elated. Grams took our group photo and they were so gracious to have done such wonderful deed and gift to my Jupinxter. They sang happy birthday song with us and greeted & wished her a fun-filled birthday! I truly wished we took down their names so we can keep in touch with these lovely couple 😀

Happy Birthday Jupinxter!

Invicta – Swiss Made Watches

Really late upload for April 2016

“what a beautiful day it’s going to be…my first thought as I opened  my eyes and saw the sun rays through the blinds this morning.”

Indeed it was a splendid day. I took the kids out for a drive and enjoyed the scenery. It’s been months since we had a great time outdoors due to weather. Today we took advantage of that. Just us three.

As the children grew restless, I took them shopping. Clothes, shoes, toys and more stuff to add to their clutter of junk in their rooms. They were happy nonetheless. That’s all that matters to me. Finally, it was time to go home.

Later that night, I perused online. I searched for the “best affordable swiss watches” and I landed on “Invicta Watches” website.  I was totally amazed how gorgeous these watches are. I read a lot of reviews and they are really good and comparable to those watches that are super expensive. I read on more and the more I want this watch.

The next day I went to Costco to renew my membership and there I went to peruse their jewelry aisle. Truly surprised to see a couple of invicta watches. I checked it out and was happy to come home with it. I bought it for the Man unfortunately. So now I will be buying mine online, sadly.

Here is the Man’s watch I came home with from Costco. Unfortunately, this watch is too big for my tiny wrist.

Finally, after three days of waiting, my first Invicta watch came in the mail. Here is a mother of pearl face plate in a divers watch. Yes! I bought the Sub Aqua divers watch. I am truly happy. I didn’t stop here.

I bought another men’s Invicta watch. This here is the Sea Hunter Sub Aqua. The Man is super stoked he’s getting all these expensive watches. He never imagined someone would spend this much money on a pair of watch for him.

I bought another Invicta for me. I made sure they are at least 300 meters deep. I tend to just jump in the pool or beach with my watch on. Lucky for me this one’s 1000 meters. I love this watch so much.

Here’s the face. Though it’s simple but I’m telling you, it’s a good investment mates. This one’s from the reserve line.

I didn’t stop here maties. So far I have eight of these watches. I am still in the market for these beauties. They all can be worn with formal clothing or casual. They are really thoughtfully made.

How bout you? What’s your weakness?

…riding the train

A late upload

It’s been a long time since I’ve taken the public transport. Here in the city, it’s a blessing to have as many choices of any public transport that fits your needs. Trains, buses, taxi-cabs, uber and so much more. For about a month now, I have been riding the public transport. There were reasons why I try and stay away from using these amenities. 

First, I’m a total germophobe..I don’t like touching anything or be in places where other people left their dirty prints on or has parked their booties on. I don’t know where they’ve been or what they’ve been handling and sitting right next to them isn’t a good idea for me.

Second, I don’t like the idea of being too close to someone for that amount of time. I don’t like to hear them breathe, feel their warmth or smell them either. It’s enough I have to deal with meself.

Last, I really don’t like the way people smell..either too much perfumery can trigger my allergies and I am left to struggle the rest of the day or a gagging body odour, that would make me want to jump out of the train for some clean air, I can’t find unless I’m in a virgin island. 

Today however, I will enjoy this ride. It’s a beautiful day and I have chosen to ride the latest train. There’s less people to deal with and there’s plenty of room to sit anywhere.

How bout you? When was the last time you’ve taken the public transport?

Thank you for stopping by everyone. Have a splendid weekend.
