On Friday night, the family came down for Heather’s graduation. The speaker was dreadful, as expected, but the ceremony didn’t seem too long. After commencement, we headed off to Red Lobster for a little dinner celebration. I love that place. I had the Ultimate Feast and saved room for desert. It was some microwaved brownie thing with ice cream and chocolate syrup. Mmm mmm mmm!! I’ll usually have a Heineken with my dinner there, but I’m taking Tylenol 3 with codiene right now so that wouldn’t be such a good idea.
Let me tell you, this is one good drug. Not only does it wipe out the pain, but it makes everything else feel better too. I know why these things can be addicting. I’m also taking some Penicillin because my dentist thinks I might have an infection in my gums somewhere. The pain I was experiencing late last week is the worst I’ve ever felt in my life. At times I thought my teeth were falling out because it felt like someone hit me in the face with a hammer. The pain seems to be gone for the most part though. I’m trying just to get by with Ibuprofen and it’s working so far.
Heather and Steve woke me up on Saturday morning to go shopping for a digital camera that Steve was going to buy her for Christmas. I was sleeping the best I had in weeks, so I was not a happy camper. After checking out Best Buy and Circuit City, Heather had her mind made up on the Canon PowerShot SD300. She chose it mainly because I suggested getting a Canon and she loved the small size. It is one of their new models and looks pretty sweet. So we went back to my house and ordered it online with 2 day shipping so it would arrive for Christmas.
For the rest of the weekend I played poker and Xbox, when I should have been Christmas shopping. I’m not even done with half of my shopping and I only have until Thursday to finish up. I also need to renew my driver’s license this week before I have to pay late fees. It’ll be a slow week at work, so my stress level should be next to 0, making it easier to get motivated to get things done at night.
