grin and bear it

I am still adjusting to my new braces- ow. The best diet plan ever- it hurts to eat and cleaning them is such a bother- eating seems like more trouble than it is worth.

Lately there has been so much going on. Rushing around, appointments, church obligations, scouts, Jack's various classes and sessions, school stuff, out of town guests...
and somehow the Holidays were just yesterday, but March is half done. Zooooom!
I have not had a chance to work on my novel in way too long. There are things in the family to worry over- health, finances,harmony etc. It snowed again today. Time for a big sigh and a regrouping.
My kids are really individualizing lately. I enjoy seeing them use their time to find themselves. Kids use time much better than we do as adults. They really live in the moment and seem satisfied with things as they are. They experience more joy. I gotta remember to do that more. I will squeeze that into my schedule.

YOu look great in braces. As if you need to diet. How long do you have to wear them? Good luck finding time to work on your novel!

Hey, great idea ... I need to lose about 20 pounds. How much do braces cost?

: )

I'm thinking about getting them on my bottom teeth. I hate how tight they feel at first but, over time you get use to them. You still look great!

"Relax! It will all, braces and kids, be over before you know it." (I keep repeating this mantra to myself too ;)
