Just Stuff

Since it has been 4 days since my last post, I figured I should post again, to give everyone something to read. However, for the last 2 days I've been trying to come up with a good topic to post about. Since I'm here, that must mean I came up with one, right? Wrong!!!! I haven't come up with anything so far, so I thought I'd just write about what I've been up to this week.

I have had some issues over the past year with a Wisdom tooth coming in. But nothing I couldn't handle. However last week it was bothering me again and I discovered I had a large swollen "abscess" or some such thing on the side of my gums. I immediately made Garlic oil and started applying it directly as well as drinking lots Lemon water. That combined with T-Tapping, I managed to keep all pain at bay. Nothing was hurting, I just had this "bump." On Sunday we visited a church and went out for lunch afterwards, with 3 of the couples (and their families) that we had met there. Wouldn't you know, one of the guys is a dentist! So, naturally I told him about my tooth and asked for some advice. As I'm sure you've guessed by now, his answer was: Root Canal or get the tooth pulled. Now, I do NOT like dentists (no offence to any dentists), I just don't like people playing around in my mouth! So I was not too pleased with the answer... The "problem" is that because I'm pregnant, I can't do anything about the tooth now. So Scott and I agreed that with proper eating and giving my body what it needs, I could reverse the tooth problem. That means, I am not allowed to have any sweets and NO junk food!!!!!
On Monday we went out and bought a juicer (and a bunch of carrots) so I can be juicing every day. As of Tuesday morning, the bump was gone, with my gum still slightly swollen. Today, it is completely back to normal! Praise the Lord!!!! :) I will be continuing to eat well (good for the baby, too! :) ) and juicing!

This afternoon I have been going through and re-organizing everything (it seems like I do that every week now), and making lots of head-way. I have also gotten rid of 3 grocery bags full of clothes within the last 4 weeks! I've realized how few of all my clothes I actually wear, and although I can't bring myself to get rid of more yet, I got rid of all the things that I don't wear because I don't like them. (I know, why then, did I even bother to bring them with me???)

I've also been doing very well, exercising daily! Scott is noticing more of a difference than I am, but regardless of losing inches, exercising just gives me more energy for the day! It "get's me going" and is very healthy! :)

I need to get back to T-Tapping, too! It has been...very long since I've done it consistently!



P.S. Your e-mail is coming soon!

I know what you mean! It has taken me FAR too long to get back into a consistent schedule!!!! But then when I do, do it I ask myself "why was I putting this off? I feel so much better!".
Oh, I can't wait for my email!!! :)

Doesn't being pregnant count as a topic? lol! :-) I hope we get to visit sometime soon! BTW, I graduate in late May-early June this year. (hint, hint... lol!)


Fair Maiden said...

Yes Kallylyn, I suppose it does. :) It would be nice to visit sometime! :) However, my sister is graduating may/june too and we'll be moving. Sorry... :(

Kelley, you know I love reading about you're up to! :) What a great testimony that the pain and swelling is gone!! I'm praying that your diet & exercise will keep it at bay, and that there will be no surgical trips to the dentist. A little over 2 years ago, Tony actually had a root canal reversal. The surgery went well and at the 6 month check up the xray showed that everything had healed properly. Glory to God! You can read about it here. (

Looking forward to your next "Just Stuff" post. ;)

Hi Kelley,

I always love reading whatever you write, even things like "just stuff." I agree with KallyLyn though, your pregnancy does count as a topic. :) I'm so glad your mouth is doing better. Hope it says that way.

Can't wait to read your next post.
Your friend, ~HW~

Kelly I saw that you have a blog on your Facebook page and I just spent a great deal of time reading it. Laughed some, cried some. You are a wonderful women of God and an inspiration to me! I only pray that my daughter will one day grow up to be a women of virtue too. Keep on writing girl! I am going to have Kaleigh read a few of your entries too! God Bless you and I will certainly be praying for the new little one!

Thank you "anonymous". :) I read your blog too! I am honored by what you said. You are a great, inspirational, virtuous woman as well, and I'm sure with you as a mother, Kaleigh will have no problem! :)
