Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Café de las Tres! Summer vacation is coming to an end because my son starts school on Thursday. I cannot believe that he is going to be sophomore in high school and turning 15 very soon! We had a very low key weekend at home. On Friday, I took him to the barbershop to get a nice fresh cut so he will be ready for school. We stopped at a couple of stores on the way home and that is it. The rest of the night was spent on the couch watching tv and relaxing.
I did unfortunately spend the majority of my weekend suffering from a major toothache. The discomfort started late Friday afternoon and I didn’t think anything of it. On Saturday, the pain level was through the roof. I felt the pain on the entire left side of my face from my eye, to my ear, and down my neck. I tried everything I could to relieve the pain (Saturday night was the absolute worse) until I could call my dentist yesterday.
Ironically, I went to the dentist last month and they did perform x-rays however they neglected to inform me that my wisdom teeth were peeking through. In my case, I felt the pain on the top and I could not even see the actual tooth. I presumed it was my back tooth which appeared most visible and it hurt to the touch. I went to the dentist yesterday and another painful x-ray revealed the cause. Apparently I only have three wisdom teeth and two of them are already cutting through. I was referred to an oral surgeon for the removal and I am going tomorrow afternoon for the consultation.
You can see my lovely x-ray below. Not pretty right?
Other than that, I plan to enjoy the next day and a half of quiet around the house before the hustle and grind starts on Thursday. I told my son that it was best that he made sure he had his clothes and book bag ready to go. At least he only has to go to school for two days this week and then he will be home for Labor Day. Can’t complain about that right?
How was your weekend? If your kids have already gone back to school, how was their first week / couple of days?
