Take This Pain Away

I don't think i have ever felt anything like this before.

It was excruciating I couldn't even put it in words. It was so painful that I literally cried.

Yes, I cried. It WAS bloody painful.

I don't even think I cried giving birth to the kids.

The pain subsided a bit after Deli gave me some zam-zam water. The pain was still apparent but bearable. Driting to sleep was slightly easier after that.

This morning, we headed to the clinic to learn that my 'lovely' wisdom tooth was the cause of my misery. It was oddly angled to begin with, it has now cracked a bit and extraction is vital.

Now I need to wait for the swelling to subside before the surgery. Until then, I just to have to bear the pain.

I realized that I have made my daughter more like me than I ever intended.

100 in 2010

I just realized that i have read 5 or 6 books in the month of January alone.

I wonder if I could read a hundred books this year.

On that note, I am starting a drive - if it's the appropriate term at all.

I will strive to read 100 books in 2010. This is gonna be interesting :)

Let's start counting!!
