The Last Supper

This was SO not the "last Supper" that you know about. This was my last supper for SIX weeks.
SIX weeks. HOOOOOLY SCHMOOOOOLLY ---- SIX WEEKS! AND Not by choice! (well maybe kind of)


Anyhow, our friend Bob (his wife was out of town) met The Hubs, Kobi, and Me at one of my favorite places to eat -- Louie's! Oh their wraps are just totally to die for.... and the fried green beans, oh and the chips and salsa.... AND you can not get out of there without eating their fries... MMMMMMMM If you are EVER in the Oklahoma City area... I strongly recommend, it's not fine dining, just a "sports bar" bar type of place that is geared more toward the family type of atmosphere. (I have no issues taking a child there-so really not a sports "bar" to me) Anyhow, it's good - try it if you are ever in town...


SO, I am writing this post with a TOTALLY FULL belly on Tuesday night. (not posting it til Wednesday though)


I ate at my favorite place Tuesday night because I am having a surgery done on my jaw Wednesday morning. I am so totally thankful that my jaw will not have to be wired shut for 6 weeks, HOWEVER, I will have to wear a splint at all times, and it does not allow me to eat normally. I have somehow, torn and/or moved the disc in my jaw and they need to repair that and clean out the left joint of the jaw. FUN! They told me soft foods only. I tried to eat soft foods (noodles) the other day with the splint in my mouth...I nearly choked and gagged to death! Seriously, it is going to be soup and protein shakes.


I was recently asked, why don't you just use a blender or food processor to mash the food and then eat it. Alright folks, seriously, I was so over that by the time I turned 1. The thought alone is enough to make me gag.


So, if you do not see me around, or hear from me.... Sorry, I don't know when I will make it back to the computer. Who knows, I may blog hop around and leave totally random comments on all of your blogs....I am telling you now, in advance.... So sorry, it was the meds that made me say it...


T he million dollar question in the house that my daughter is asking ( I am sure the Hubs is thinking, but will NOT ask) ---Are you ready?

"Hey Mom? So how long do we have before you will be able to speak again?"




My child LOVES me!




PS: The giveaway is still going on... I am donating from my "side job". It is such great stuff, I just have to share it with you... ANYHOW, go back to this post to ENTER.

UPDATE- So I am a complete idiot... We got to the appointment to have the surgery AND my mouth splint was at home on the dresser.... Totally had to reschedule... So next Wednesday, I will be having my surgery... disregard the whole last supper thing... it was all a hoax to get our friends to go eat with us. Also, I didn't want to cook... In honor of my rotten day, I leave you with this.

My forgetter's getting better,

But my rememberer is broke

To you that may seem funny

But, to me, that is no joke

For when I'm 'here' I'm wondering

If I really should be 'there'

And, when I try to think it through,

I haven't got a prayer!

Oft times I walk into a room,

Say 'what am I here for?

'I wrack my brain, but all in vain!

A zero, is my score.

At times I put something away

Where it is safe, but, Gee!

The person it is safest from

Is, generally, me!

When shopping I may see someone,

Say 'Hi' and have a chat,

Then, when the person walks away

I ask myself, 'who the **** was that?

Yes, my forgetter's getting better

While my rememberer is broke,

And it's driving me plumb crazy

And that isn't any joke.

thats funny that you forgot it! I think you really just werent ready to do it yet... No food or talking????!!!!! that is insane. How long do you have to do that for? Go out and buy a whole bunch of magazines and books this week. I could never do it!

Di said...

Is your surgery for TMJ? Mandy and I both have problems with our jaws popping in and out of place, but thank goodness, not severely enough to need surgery. Mandy tried the splint thing, but it just made it hurt worse. I cannot imagine going six weeks without eating or talking. good luck on not going totally insane...LOL

Di said...

Oh, BTW I LOVVE the poem. I can so identify with it......LOL

Alright, you've got a week...line up those dinner dates...7 of them, right???? :)

Chell said...

Di - I will shoot you a message on facebook. The surgery is a result of a TMJ problem. My jaw did the funny popping thing x's 10 that day though... come to find out, my disc in the jaw had torn and a piece of it is out of place? They are scoping and fixing what they can. We will know for sure after the surgery if that is all there is wrong...
