Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ 1/27


In my life this week…The main thing this week was Paulie’s oral surgery. It went real well, but his right side was so swollen it was unbelievable. It’s been going down each day, but honestly, it freaked me out at first. Other than that, it all went well. And he was so funny right after surgery, still coming off the anesthetic. He was laughing, saying funny things and was just hilarious. 😀

In our homeschool this week…We cut our week short because of his surgery. One of the many blessings of homeschooling.

Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…We have a follow up appointment for Paulie this week. Plus I’m finally starting back up at our church’s Tuesday night bible study. I’m looking forward to getting together with friends again very soon.

My favorite thing this past week was…Having my husband around with Paulie’s surgery. He took such good care of him, it was such a blessing to him and me.

Things I’m working on…I’ve been crocheting and making cards. I’m working on some dish cloths and coasters for gifts. Maybe even a crocheted bookmark soon. Just some fun things to put in my gift box for upcoming events. 🙂

I’m cooking…We made our first gluten free homemade pizza this past week (the night before Paulie’s surgery) and it was a big hit! I still need to tweak it a little bit, but overall it was great. I can’t wait to try it again, but I’m waiting until Paulie is up to chewing harder food items. Having both lower wisdom teeth taken out, he’s still on softer foods.

I’m grateful for…That Paulie’s surgery went so well.

I’m praying for…Paulie’s swelling continues to subside and that he will be able to eat more solid foods soon.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share (silly, serious or both!)…I tried to take a photo of Paulie’s swollen cheek, and you can see it a little, but honestly, this picture doesn’t do it justice. It was so much bigger than this picture shows.

  1. Poor Paulie, it may not show exactly but enough that I could see the difference. I really need to do more gluten free things. That pizza sounds good. You have a great week and enjoy the bible study when you get back to it. Love

  2. I’m so glad everything went well with Paulie’s oral surgery and I so understand about the swelling. I had oral surgery just over a year and I cried because my Lance was afraid of me I was so swollen. M mouth was banded shut so I he couldn’t understand me and it freaked him out. Poor little guy.


    1. Oh Linda, that is sad. I’ve never thought about it that way. Thankfully Paulie’s wasn’t banded shut, that would have been so much worse.

  3. Oh, my, he actually let you take a picture! And post it on your blog!! Poor guy. Three of my four have had their wisdom teeth out, with no complications, PTL, but it wasn’t fun for them or for me! Glad he’s healing. 🙂

    1. Oh yeah Christine, he doesn’t mind photos and me putting them on my blog. I did ask first of course. 😉 Thankfully we have no complications so far either. Praying it continues that way.

  4. Poor guy! I’m glad it’s over and improving for him.

    We love gf pizza at our house!

    Today Miss 13 made burgers and had them on corn pancakes. That was good too. When Mr. 18 came home he thought we were having ‘real’ burgers, it looked so authentic!

    Enjoy your Bible study. I am still too tired to go out much at night, so I haven’t gone for a long time. I miss it.

    1. Annie Kate those burgers sound great. We’ve never made corn pancakes, do you have a recipe for them? I would love to try them sometime.

      There are many Tuesday nights that I don’t feel like going to bible study, but I try to make myself. I pray you will start being able to go soon.

  5. I will probably start making pizza once or twice a month too. I used to make it all the time, then we went GF, so I stopped. Now that I have something that works well, I’ll probably start up again.

  6. Poor thing! I’m so glad that he is healing well and that he is such a good sport about capturing the memory. And, I agree, it’s moments like this that homeschooling is wonderful for the flexibility to work around life’s challenges.
