I never thought I'd be heading to the 30... with braces. It's been a week and three days. At first my mouth wasn't that sore, tonight it kind of does... and I find my jaw hurting the more I talk - which is really helpful at work. :)

One of my friends posted this verse when he got braces: "Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see— how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him. " Psalm 34:8 At first I thought it was funny, now I get it.

If you have never had braces, try to imagine... this contraption holding your cheeks so your teeth don't get wet... then another device holding your tongue. Then come the tools and fingers in your mouth. It was quite the experience I must say.

Here's what I've learned:
1. Biting a sandwich feels weird.
2. Wax is your friend, even when you think you don't need it.
3. I'm already sick of brushing my teeth.
4. Even when you're 30, people will act like they're 10 and call you names like "metal mouth."

I was kind of dumb and made my appointment at 8:30 on a Monday morning... this is me that afternoon. I was sore and felt like I was on drugs. :)

I go for a check up in six weeks. Wowsa. :) It's a lot to handle and a lot going on in my mouth.
