Slow Day

It's been quite a slow day. I haven't ventured out as we've had snow, freezing rain, and now rain. In a couple hours it'll start cooling off again, and it'll all freeze! So instead of going outside, I've been watching TV, playing on the computer, cleaning the kitchen, and making Christmas candies!

I should go start making something for dinner...we had a late breakfast, no lunch, so an early dinner would be good. I'm just not sure what I'll be making yet.

On Thanksgiving I woke up with a sore jaw. After about a week I decided to go to the doctor. He told me to take 800 mg of Ibuprofen 3 times a day. He also asked if I clench my teeth when I sleep, as when I wake up is when it's the sorest. I didn't know until Thursday night. I found out that I was grinding my teeth. So, last night we stopped at Target to get a mouth guard. Considering I have such a good gag reflex, I didn't do too badly with it last night! I was trying to get used to it before I went to bed, but I kept gagging on it. So, I took it out for awhile and ended up falling asleep without it in. When I woke up at 4:00 with my jaw hurting, I put it in. I gagged only twice at that time! So, I was able to sleep with it in for a couple of hours. I just wish I knew why I started clenching my jaw now. Weird.

Well, I'm off to search the fridge to find something to make for supper!
