Well, this week hasn't exactly gone as planned. I began the week with the Rock n Roll New Orleans Half which was so much fun. After returning home, I saw an oral surgeon regarding a mouth issue I've been having (he was one of three dentists I've seen in the past two weeks). The endodontist said a root canal wasn't in my best interested, so the oral surgeon agreed that my back molar that's been giving me trouble for over a year needed to be removed. I made him PROMISE I would be good to go for Princess so here's hoping!

The rest of the week was great, though! :)

I might have toted my medal around in my purse with me all week. :)

When we initially checked into the Hyatt Regency in downtown New Orleans for the race, the staff member couldn't stop smiling at my credit card. He asked if we'd ever visited the Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios and come to find out, he was a former bellhop there! He also introduced us to another coworker of his who was a cast member in the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot. Literally, what a small world! We had a great time chatting and he even left this little Mickey on my room key! It was an awesome end to our first day in New Orleans!

This week, the weather was GORGEOUS so we decided to take advantage of the afternoon on Wednesday. With oral surgery scheduled for Thursday, I knew my mileage for the week wouldn't be so great, but I figured I was recovering from Sunday's half anyway. Those New Orleans streets are always super tough on my body. 

Anyway, Jason, Brayden, and I enjoyed a 3 mile walk/run around the neighborhood. The azalea's can't decide if it's winter or spring! I was chased by an angry red wasp at one point which had me in a dead sprint for about a quarter of a mile. Y'all...he was big and angry. Have I mentioned I hate wasps??

Despite the whole wasp situation, we still enjoyed ourselves!

Wednesday afternoon was an awesome mail day! Along with several orders I'd been waiting on, I also received a surprise from a sweet blog reader! She sent Brayden an early birthday gift so he could pick something out in Disney. It was so sweet...thank you again, Miriam! 

My oral surgery went well yesterday and now I'm at home recuperating. My jaw is incredibly sore and I can't keep my eyes open longer than a few hours at a time. They told me not to be surprised if day three was the worst which will be Saturday so we shall see how I feel. 

Princess is in 2 weeks! I can't wait!! 

How was your week? Have you ever had a tooth extracted?


  1. Oh no, I do hope you are feeling better by Princess in 2 weeks.

  2. I got all 4 wisdom teeth out at 19, and the first full day had the most swelling. It wasn't bad, but my dad called me a chipmunk. Thanks!

  3. Sorry to hear about your surgery, Karen. Here's to a speedy recovery and that there's no impact on you running Princess.
