Online shopping binge while on steroids and opiates

Yesterday I went to the dentist for some very-much needed work on my teeth. I had 7 fillings! They were tooth-colored kind! Yay! The fact that I had atrocious, worse-than-cavity-looking silver mercury fillings (endearingly called "lead" by me) dates my last dentistry work on them. Three of the fillings ended up being very deep, which might lead to some root canals in the hopefully distant future.

Anyways, after he was done, he told me "these are really going to hurt for a while". Which sounds bad enough to a person with normal sensitivity and relatively high pain endurance. To me - it translated to "knock yourself out for the next couple of weeks so that people don't have to hear your screams." You have to understand - mere regular cleanings are painful for me.

So he prescribed some steroids and opiates, which leave me super-charged and super-drowsy at the same time. But they do help my sleeping disorder. (Divine sleep - I love you drugs.)

However, I did go on a online-shopping binge last night to "reward" myself. Below are some items I ended up buying at Fossil and the Gap (all on sale). Yay for the Toothfairy!
It was a very expensive night. Now on to revising the budget for the next month. Ramen noodles, here I come!

Socks and hats

Finally! It took me months to finish my hubby's wool socks. The needles I used were small and delicate, so it took longer than it needed to. But alas, they are done! And it seems like hubby likes them. He even slept in them - it was kinda cute.I also finished my flapper hat. Turned out pretty. There are two ways you can wear it, with the flap up or down. Too bad my head is so large.
Now on to those other projects! My goal is not to start a new project till all the others are finished. So I got three pillow covers, another hat, and a crocheted amigurumi owl to go. All I need is more free time.
