Braces...anyone?

I'm getting braces tomorrow. HA HA HA, it makes me laugh so hard. I'm scared that it's going to hurt like the dickens. I know, I'm a big baby. Oh, well I can be if I want to.
I am kind of excited to be able to just be for an hour and a half while he does the darn procedure. Is that awful, or what? I love my kids, don't get me wrong. But, since we have been back to school it's been a Mad house. We have projects and meetings with our teachers, tests, mission designs up to my ears, assignments, required reading selections and on and on. Why did I want to homeschool? Ohhhhhhhh, yeah I remember now....just a little brain fart.
So, life is life and we are just trying to get through the winter. This cold weather is so hard on me. I was up until 6:30 this morning crying in pain. All night long I thought I was going to die. The weird thing is during the night like that when all is so lonely and quiet I wonder what if I did slip away in the night. What if the pain gets so painful that I just combust? Now in broad day light that doesn't make any sense and I now that the chances of it actually happening is slim to none. But, at night in the dark, when it's just you and the Golden Girls the possibilities are endless.

  1. You're getting braces? I was pondering that myself but I don't think I could afford it right now. Hope it doesn't hurt too bad. I still vividly remember the pain from back when I had braces in third grade :(

    Good luck :)

  3. I got braces when I was 21- felt like kind of a dork, but it wasn't bad.

  4. I got braces at 21 and I was sore for the 1st week while my teeth adjusted but it was not unbearable. You will be happy with nice straight teeth. Make sure you get the permanent retainer after you get them off because I didn't and my teeth moved a bit again and I am kicking myself for not getting one.

  5. You can do the braces--I know it! Plus, to us (as parents) the 2 years you have to have them on for is like nothing; whereas to our kids, it feels like an eternity..."I can't have gum for 2 years??!! How will I survive?" I've heard that one a few times too many!

  6. I am having the rest of your night and your morning, minus the braces of course. I woke before 9 am because I hurt when I tried to roll over.

    So--who takes over from me? Do you have the schedule, because they 'forgot' to send me one.
