Just everyday life

Today I have an orthodontist appointment. I've had braces almost 2 years now. I've forgotten how my teeth feel without them, or what it's like not worrying about everything I eat getting stuck in my brackets. Some days it feels like I will have them forever, I see no end in sight. Every month I go in, the do a check and tie and send me on my way. No "Looking good!" "Not much longer and you'll be done" or "Let's take those off today!". Sigh.

I didn't do much on my to-do list yesterday. The only thing I did was dishes, so I still need to do some laundry, vacuum, and whatever else was on my list. Plus I'm going running tonight. I went last night but only ran a few laps because my back hurt too bad, hopefully it'll be better tonight.

Well, I think I've wasted enough time while I ate lunch, I should go do something like clean my living room.

They didn't give you a time frame for when they'd come off today? What a bummer!

Have fun...when you're done, mine needs cleaned too. :)

Oh, and in your spare time, I've tagged you for a meme.

I had braces for 4.5 years beginning when I was 10. I remember when I got them off it was the strangest feeling. My teeth looked huge and felt so slick! It also took a while to look at myself smiling in the mirror. You'll see...you look so different!

Well, didn't really get a definite answer today either :P He did say that we should be able to take off the top ones soon. The bottom will depend on how well we can get my back two teeth to rotate (they grew in weird cuz I've had 2 molars pulled).
