Hi there, so I apologize for the infrequent posts as of late, but I have a secret to share with you.
I have braces. *gasp*
It’s unfortunate that I didn’t have the opportunity to correct my teeth and bite long ago, but better late than never. I’m revealing this secret because I will not be able to post that often this summer. On July 10th I’m going in for oral surgery where they will be breaking my jaw to correct a severe overbite. (Oh fun!)
Do I really need this you say? Well, my other choices were to wait until I would inevitably need dentures or have two of my teeth pulled resulting in the appearance of a larger nose (no way!). I figured that if I was going to wear braces for two years, I wanted my teeth and bite to be fixed.
One good thing, the forced liquid diet will help me shed the extra ten pounds I have put on since last year. 🙂
I’m so glad you can’t see me now because I have these lovely custom wires in my mouth that make me look like Hannibal Lector; with prongs sprouting up from each tooth so there is something to attach the tight rubber bands to keep my jaw shut. (Sorry if that’s too much information)
Needless, to say, I look far from fashionable. I’m trying to keep my mouth closed as much as possible, which has been pretty easy, because I currently have laryngitis (the gift of a virus from my 3 1/2 year old).
So, please don’t cancel your subscriptions. Better yet, if you haven’t already subscribed, do it now so you will know when I have a new post.
I may post here or there, so keep an eye out.
Have a great summer everyone!
