This is a happy crappy post.
First up... The Happy...
I made FIFTY of these little flowers in all sorts of happy colors. Forty seven went on gift bags for my church-y girl friends who went with me on the New Hope weekend retreat. Three little flowers were sent to the recycle bin for one reason or another. It was fun to see these little flowers adorning shirts, hats, bags, and scarfs during the weekend. Happy. Very, very, happy.
Now it's time for... The Crappy...
Once upon a time I had a nasty tooth. Nasty tooth got a root canal. After the root canal, said tooth had a steel post surgically implanted into it. After the surgery healed, a shiny new porcelain crown was cemented over all. Nasty tooth had been redeemed. The nasty reconstructed tooth was shiny, new, and lovely (and more than a little $$$$$). Glorious.
Fast forward a few years...
Root canal failed.
Infection set in.
Shiny tooth looks happy, but feels crappy.
No options but to remove shiny, lovely, procelain-crowned tooth.
Tooth came out yesterday. NOT fun.
Crappy, in fact. Very, very crappy.
There you have it...The Happy and The Crappy.
I think I will now go ice my jaw and take a painkiller or two three.
