It's been a week since I got my braces (this afternoon, anyway), and I'm finally starting to feel back to normal...painwise, anyway. :) I think it will take me a little while to get used to having all this in my mouth. :)

I've been getting a lot done on my blanket lately...I think I might be nearly done with the first strip. I just have to decide if I want it to be length-wise, or width-wise. If it's width-wise, I'm nearly done. If it's length-wise, I probably need to keep going for a while. I'm excited to start a new strip--I think I'm going to change things up a little bit, try something new--but I want it to look nice, too. Since it's a blanket for me, I plan on doing whatever strikes my fancy, but I'm not sure how it will work. We'll see. :)

More pictures to come....

Happy to hear the mouth is hanging in there! For my wisdom teeth is was soup and yogurt. Lots of it. How exciting your blanket is progressing! I love blankets. I would make loads of them if I had time. I love wrapping up in a nice cozy blanket. Keep going!!

i had braces for almost three years, and they still tell me to get them again, just to straighten them just a little... yeah, right! I cant deal with that pain again! good luck, and take some tylenol or ibrofun!

I love it when I'm doing something for myself... it's like a no holds barred thing... for ME it's whatever it takes.

Hope your mouth feels better. I remember when my daughter got her braces... pretty painful for a while... and at times there after. Don't like pain if it can be avoided.
