WARNING: This is a big pity party post.. due to hunger, pain and exhaustionWorst. weekend. ever. Wisdom teeth surgery itself actually went great, I ended up getting full anesthesia so I don't think I even saw the doctor once! Its just been the following 48 hrs that have been horrible. My face didn't puff up until Saturday morning, and now I look like a freak show. I had even planned on posting a picture thinking it'd be funny to look back on, but I lose respect for myself every time I look in the mirror.

To sum it up, I look like:
Shallow Hal meets J-Lo pregnant with Quadruplets meets Charlize Theron from Monster..

Painkillers do not seem to be working, my face is still numb, I've had a fever and an ear-ache, and I think half of my lip has fallen off from being chapped. Have NO CLUE how I'm going to go back to work tomorrow, unless a surgeon from Extreme Makeover makes a house call and figures out how to drain some puffiness out of my face.

Alright enough with the depressing complaining.

Instead I'd like to do some pretend online shopping in my head and think about what I SHOULD'VE spent $1,000 on this weekend, instead of electing oral surgery!
Makeup: Hmmm I dropped $330 at MAC on wedding makeup 2 yrs ago and that only managed to fill up 2 small bags. So doing the math, I would buy 4 small bags worth of MACness.
Shoes: Instead of saying I'd buy 1.5 pairs of Jimmy Choos, I'd probably just go to DSW and pick about 12 pairs of shoes instead.. cos I like to have a lot of options for shoesie woosies in the morning. And knowing my luck, I'd break my Jimmy Choo heel within 1 week walking some Boston Cobblestone.

Luggage: I've been searching online for some cute luggage (because I think if you have just plain black luggage, the odds go up that the airline will totally LOSE it!) and unfortunately Gus will not agree to let me buy Betseyville Luggage (from Betsey Johnson). "Julie, you really think I'm going to take that hot pink thing as a carry on when I go on a business trip!?"

Clothes: J.Crew spring collection. SO up my alley. (minus the hat, I'm not THAT cool)

Donate to the MSPCA (Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals): They sent me the cutest address labels last week, and I made a small donation, but I'd love to make a bigger one.

Hope you all had a better weekend than me.. I'll think up a shiny happy post soon.

I'm definitely in summer-mode when my biggest swoon moment was over the shorts. I mean, you posted about shoes and MAC, and I'm gushing over shorts?! But the shorts are cute, not too long, not too short and are such a great color.

I'm off to check them out!

(And you could pull off the hat).

Most importantly- feel better soon!!!

I still think you should have posted a picture of yourself. It will be a reminder of what you've been through and a warning to others. :) I hope you feel better and less puffy by now.
