Even though my mouth hurts something chronic at the moment and I am so looking forward to the next six-eight months of not been able to bite into anything with my front teeth and then on top of that finding it relatively hard to chew with my back teeth. It is progress. It is a step forward at last. Every day is another day closer to the day I dream of getting that titanium screw in my jaw and a nice fake tooth on the end of that.
I went to the ortho on Thursday, I went in with a nice fake tooth on a removable plate and came out with a appliance that involves four bands on my teeth, a big spring, some acrylic and a pretty dodgy fake tooth that I can just about spin round on the wire which bonds it to my other teeth. As well as a fake tooth that looks more fake than any of the others that I had because the lab sort of messed up the tooth colour, it is just a bit whiter than the others. I just have to keep on saying to myself that in the end it is all going to be worth it, though I can’t help but wish that I hadn’t been born missing a tooth because after what 11 years of Ortho I am just a little bit over it.
Anyway now that rant is over, I just want to smile. well not about my teeth but about today. It feels like such a wonderful day. I did a Fiskars demo today at Kmart, which went as well as can be expected for a Saturday. I went out before in the garden to have a play with my camera, letting it see the daylight for a change instead of the darkness of the night. Going to see Mia Dyson tonight which should be nice.
I’m listening to some old Sarah Blasko at the moment and thinking that I really should get a ticket for the show next week.
