Was it a nightmare? Was it sleep apnea? Something triggered me to bite all along the right edge of my tongue. I even bit though it, in one place!
Woke up with a start from the pain. There was blood coming out of my mouth. Because I am on a blood thinner, the bleeding would not stop. I got kind of scared, but didn't feel I could maneuver myself to the ER.
I sat up for awhile, I lay back down. I knew I didn't want all that blood going into my stomach. Finally, I just hung over the bathroom sink and let it drain--trying not to spit and make it worse.
Finally, I got a white linen napkin, put an ice cube in it, packed that between my tongue and bottom teeth and went back to sleep.
When I woke up this morning, it looked like a bloody murder had occurred on my bed and in the bathroom. It is sorer than anything. I think I better buy a mouth guard to wear at night!!!!!
From time to time, I have been known to spend $300.00 on annuals to fill pots and baskets and planters. Last year, we had such a hot and dry summer that every annual I planted died. I spent $279.00 last year.
I am proud to say, I showed great restraint today. I had my garden planting list with me and went to Lowe's to buy annuals. Now, granted they aren't as large as the fancy gardening center I like to shop at across the road from me, but they will catch up. I had 3 of the Chartreuse vines I always use that I couldn't find at Lowe's, so on the way home, I stopped at the fancy gardening center and got them.
All total today, I spent $111.19. Instead of putting Impatiens and Petunias in the three planters that fit on my porch railing, I am going to use only two planters and planting Sweet Pea seeds in them. If they succeed, they will trail as nicely as a Wave Petunia and if they don't succeed, it's no big out of pocket loss.
Today it was 88 degrees with 25 mph straight winds and an occasionally 40 mph gust. I unloaded my plants and put them in the shade, came in and turned on the A/C. Tonight it will get down into the 50's and tomorrow's high is predicted to be 62. It should make a nice day to get all my pots cleaned up and planted. Put the rug down on the porch and get my chairs in place.
Tonight, as I go to sleep, I am going to keep chanting, "Don't bit your tongue, don't bite your tongue"......and I think I will sleep on my left side, so in case I do bite, it will be on the other side.
