A Bad Case of the Mondays

This weekend we a pretty good one. I got together with some friends for my birthday on Friday night and then spent most of Saturday with my parents. Got cards (and some free drinks) from my friends. My parents gave me a card and a gift certificate for the beauty salon (I REALLY need to get my hair done.) Most of Sunday was spent getting caught up on all the chores I had been putting off.
Now it's Monday, the least popular day of the week. My biggest problem on Monday is that over the weekend I tend to get on my own schedule which is to be up into the wee hours of the morning and then sleep until noon. Even though I only have two nights to be on this schedule I still have a real hard time getting out of it.
Last night, just like most Sunday nights, I tried to get to bed at a decent time. I ended up tossing and turning until well past 2AM. This morning I apparntly didn't wake fully the first couple of times my alarm went off (I guess I hit the snooze while still mostly asleep.) So, I was about 20 minutes late waking up.
The first thing I was fully aware of was this throbbing pain on the left side of my lower jaw. Awhile back I went in to get a root canal for that molar, but because it was infected the dentist could only do half the job and then treat the infection. He put in a temporary filling to plug up the gaping hole. I was supposed to go back and have the root canal finished once the infection cleared. Well, the infection cleared over a month ago and I have been foolishly putting off going back. Now all of the temporary filling has popped out and I have half a tooth with a hole that goes all the way to the jaw bone.
Last night I eneded up sleeping on that side of my face. OUCH! Everytime I drink anything hot or cold it instantly hits that nerve. OUCH!! Everytime I eat food gets wedged in the hole. OUCH!!!
When I called the dentist they said the soonest he can see me is next week. I explained in detail what was happening and the recpectionist assured me that she will talk to the dentist and see if they can get me in sooner. God, I hope so!
The second problem I had this morning was that ever since I had my gall bladder removed in the summer of 2003 my liver has been producing more bile than the rest of my system can handle. Some days are better than others. Today was one of the worse days. It feels like having the stomach flu or food poisoning (I'll spare you more explicit details.)
I was a mess this morning. I wanted nothing more than stay in bed. This wasn't really an option today. The company I work for is an internationally based company. The office I work out of is rather small. Right now there is only one other person in my department. She has the flu (God I hope I don't get it.) She called in today. I suppose I could have called in as well, but I have a hard time doing things like that unless I'm really terribly sick.
So, I've been sitting at my desk with throbing pain in my tooth, my stomach, and beyond. What a GREAAAAAT way to start the week!!!
Oh well, I'll just keep telling myself that it can only get better from here.
