Limited Site Update

For various reasons I am not doing a full site update today. The areas that have been updated are: The sections that are usually updated, but aren't are the following: Why am I doing this? For one, I have had a nagging and persistent toothache for the past week and over the weekend it has become worse. While I am taking meds to ease the pain and I'm using Ambesol, I still have painful flare-ups every now and then, and when this happens I am unable to concentrate on much of anything. The pain medication also makes me feel drowsy. In spite of getting an extra hour to do the web site update as we rolled back the clocks this weekend due to the end of Daylight Savings Time for the year, I wasn't able to take advantage of the extra hour other than to get more rest.

In case you're wondering, yes, I have been to the dentist. I saw my dentist last Monday, but even after closely examining the affected area and taking an X-ray he did not see any clear indications of what might be causing the pain (there's no swelling of the gum, no signs of decay or infection, no damaged fillings). Meanwhile, he prescribed some Vicodin to help me cope with the pain. I plan to see him again on Monday, when he can hopefully find what is causing the pain and can treat it.

The other reason I am not doing a full update is because I discovered a number of significant errors in the new Survey for Sisters of Diaper Boys. Having to correct the form as well as retroactively adjust all the submissions received thus far has put me behind on this project, so I plan to have all the responses from this as well as the other surveys posted next Sunday.

Because of the difficulties I have with concentrating on anything while dealing with a toothache and the side effects of the meds, plus the fact that I spent so much time debugging the survey form, I didn't have much time to do more than a couple new diaper boy drawings. I felt it wasn't worth posting just the ones I had done, so these, too, will have to wait until next week.
