Brace face follow up and holiday weekend was bust!

Well, we had about 3 days of tears after the braces were put on. The feelings she described to me, I remember all too well. For instance, alternating between feeling like all of your teeth are loose and then a feakishly weird tickling sensation. Then there was the pain of the brackets making sores on the inside of her cheeks. However, through it all we got by with only 2 evenings of ibuprofen for the pain and by Sunday morning, she said the only teeth that hurt were her canines. I felt so bad for her but at the same time it was hard for me not to laugh at the faces she was making because she was trying to wrap her lips over the braces were just pathetically hilarious! Any of you who've had braces know what I'm talking about. Pictures, like I promised, are coming soon.

This past weekend was a total bust as far as getting ANY yard work done. The meteorologist really got the weather forecast wrong. I swear we are going to need to build an ark soon if the rain keeps up. My dad told me that we've had right about 30" of precipitation since the beginning of the year - an all time record for the wettest Spring in like, forever. Anyway, I'm just totally pissed about this because I have no clue when I'm going to get my husband to commit to doing in the near future.

Please come pick me up in the ark should you get it built. I'm not that far away and I really want to escape the FLOOD.

I dropped by from Mocha's and must say I cannot fathom 30" of rain. We get less than 8" annually.
