Y’all, I’ve obviously been watching too much Peg Cat, because this is the part that I want to yell, “I am tttoootalllllyyy freaking out!“- all you mamas know what I’m talking about.

But for real though, I really am. I have to get my wisdom teeth cut out Friday. Not pulled, not just one, but all four have to be CUT out. Impacted and infected. Gross.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that I’m a little bit nervous.

I don’t know if it’s the fact that I won’t be able to eat all the foods, or if I may say crazy stuff when I come to, or if it’s just because I’ll be put under for who knows how long while another human being cuts out all my teeth and I don’t know what’s happening or if I’ll ever wake up again. Kidding. Maybe?

I’m a foodie and a snacker- now I’m wondering how I’m gonna make it through it.

When I’m only able to eat soft foods that are all mashed or blended, where’s the texture? Where’s the flavor? I’m sure eating soft foods only gets old really fast.

UPDATE: I made it through. I asked for my teeth and I cried on the way home (who knows why?), but I made it! Don’t forget to leave a comment about your wisdom teeth removal story!

Additional Tip?

This is an amazing time to think about investing in a pressure cooker

Why do I say that? I absolutely love my pressure cooker. It is a time saver in the kitchen and makes cooking so much easier when I don’t feel like doing it. 

I no longer have to stand over and monitor a pot, I don’t have to worry about heating up my house, and there are so many one-pot meals, which means fewer dishes.

Also, if you haven’t got one already, a high powered blender or food processor like Ninja or Vitamix is an amazing addition to your kitchen arsenal- especially for times like this. 

I use my Ninja blender ALL the time to make smoothies and slushes, blend soups, and easily chop veggies. Time-saver = lifesaver for this mama.

If you’re a smaller family, this is my favorite budget pressure cooker.

Any time that you see it under $60, know that you’re getting a good deal!

For larger families, I absolutely suggest the Instant Pot 8 Quart! It’s a perfect size! 

I paid over $100 for mine when they first debuted, but if you can find it for under $80, that’s amazing!

  1. I am sure this is late too and you already had your done. But I just had mine done yesterday all 4 and it was nothing. I was freaked out like you and had already canceled on them several times before so I had to not chicken out this time. Now I don’t why I canceled the first few times. It was nothing. They knocked be out before novacane and stuff. Woke up better then when I have surgery in the hospital. The only thing that drove me nuts it’s being so numb in the face, thank god that wore off. Now to eat something. Thanks for the list

  2. I’m probably too late on this, so if you’ve had them out, I hope that it went so well, even better than you thought!
    If you haven’t yet, I just had mine out this morning, and I was absolutely terrified of every aspect. In addition, I’m so scared of needles, so I was worried about the IV, and I was afraid I’d say something I would regret under the drugs. Also, I too had to have all four cut out, and it went totally fine.

    If you’re afraid of needles, I would definitely suggest asking for laughing gas before the IV and ask to be allowed to listen to music through earbuds as it’s kicking in and while they put the IV in. It started working pretty fast, and it made me feel heavy, relaxed, and calm. The music gave me something to focus on other than the IV; I didn’t watch her put it in, and it went totally fine. The anesthesia kicked in pretty fast, probably about 30-60 seconds and I was out. If you’re worried about saying crazy things, I’ve heard that fighting the drugs can lead to being more loopy, but just relaxing leads to less loopiness.

    Either way, once I woke up, I didn’t say anything crazy st all. I mostly just cried (lol) and even though I felt really drugged I was generally aware of what I was saying and of what was going on.

    This was my first legit medical procedure and I was severely anxious, almost to the point of a few full blown anxiety attacks, but it’s been going really well so far and I’m sure yours will too!

    (Sorry for this long comment lol) Finally is like to say that I liked your article about what to eat and it’s given me lots of ideas for the next few days, and hope that I won’t just be eating potatoes, puddings, and smoothies. Thank you!
