March 11: Day 19th Post-Op

You know, I could really get used to this whole staying-at-home thing. I actually have time to, you know, put away laundry and get my homework done!

 

Here is me, after drinking lots of water and taking ibuprofen to minimize my swelling for the day:

 

After much effort, voila! New haircut and developing new smile.

(note the laundry air-drying behind me, ha ha!) My smile is still “heavy”; it takes a lot of effort to make the smile pictured above, plus it droops a bit on one side. Gotta give my muscles time to regenerate! Even so, I’m LOVING my new smile. Can you imagine what I’ll look like once my braces come off? Geez. I’m going to cry with happiness on that day.

I got my hair cut and bought some fresh Bath and Body Works candles today. It’s amazing what retail therapy can do for the soul. Now I’m tired- time to rest! This spring break week is cool! 🙂

  1. I’m so happy for you!! 🙂 The hair and smile look great! I had to laugh at your ‘staying at home’ comment bc I’ve been saying the same thing.
