my big fat greek lip

Warning, the picture of my lip is not for the faint of heart. Its, as my husband would say, "iggy".
Also, the title of the blog should be "My Big Fat Italian Lip" since I am not Greek, but rather 1/4 Italian, but it kind of loses the play on words when I get technical.
I went to the dentist yesterday for some routine fillings and also a gum flap removal. My dentist forgot to tell me that the gum flap removal would be sore afterwards and that I would resemble a hideous version of Angelina Jolie. I think perhaps some banana popsicles are in order to help nurse my swollen and painful lip back to its normal self. The pain from my gum extraction runs along my jaw and for some reason is even causing me some bizarre ear pain. I did refrain from going to work today. I just couldn't fathom dealing with my lip and my painful gum flap removal site for 12 freakin hours. Last time I went in to work when I wasn't feeling well, I ended up losing my voice partway through the shift and had to write notes and have our unit secretary answer all questions and calls for me.
On another note, we got back from vacation on Saturday. I only came off with a small turtle sand sculpture that my husband accidentally stepped on before I could get a picture. I did get some good knitting done on the way down and back and have pictures to show for it.
