My big day is tomorrow. I have a dentist appointment and a nativity scene, lol. I don’t know how the two are going to mix, but I’m sure the scene is going to be beautiful. I always have a slight allergic reaction to local anesthetic. I get a sore throat and a bit of a fever. The injection site is usually sore and inflamed, as well. It depends on which anesthetic they use. I know lidocaine is a big no-no for me. Lidocaine= temporary unconsciousness. I had a lidocaine epidural for the birth of J. I passed out and had breathing issues. The injection site hurt horribly, and I received no comfort whatsoever during most of the birthing process. It was a scary time. I think they gave me morphine to shut me up after the entire hospital heard me screaming for the Lord (literally). That worked!
I like the folks at this dentist office. They are always gentle and comforting with me. I’ll speak with the dentist about giving me the best anesthetic. I’m sure they have on record what they gave me last time. I had some allergic reactions, but they were bearable. I’m doing the nativity scene no matter what.
I’m going to go to bed early tonight. J wants a Christmas present before Christmas, lol. He knows there is no Santa Claus because I never believed in the custom of lying to children about a random jolly non-parental benefactor. The only downfall about him knowing the true nature of gifting is that he always tries to weasel me into giving him a present early. He’s a persistent little fella. He doesn’t know what he’s getting, but he knows he’s getting something, and he wants one ASAP. Lol.
If I have to crack open something early, it will the Simon Swipe. The tablet is “the big one” that he asked for, and the 3DS game is one that he requested, as well. Those will bring him the most smiles. I don’t know though. Simon Swipe might end up being a hit over here. My son is as enthusiastic about colors/patterns/sounds/sequences as I am. I’ll have to write about the early opening if it occurs. I think he fell asleep for the night, so I’m safe for now. I will try to postpone it as long as possible.
I hope no one thought I was being mean in my earlier post. I was being stern because I don’t like to see people being abused. Some of my commenters and emailers remind me of myself at an earlier time.
We are supposed to forgive everyone who hurts us. We shall not hate other people or seek personal revenge and such. We are also supposed to pray for people who hurt us. However, we are not supposed to include ourselves in things that involve sin and general wickedness. The relationships that I was referring to in my earlier post are abusive. The abusers have obvious ill intent, and no one of any faith (or lack of faith) has to take abuse. Sometimes we have to love other people from afar because not doing so would result in the death of our souls. Sometimes the NC rule is completely necessary.
