Mental Lassitude

These days I have been doing pretty much nothing except school. I need to remember that I'm a human first, then a student. It's easy to forget that life exists beyond the walls of my school or the confines of my study. Then I hear about what someone did over the weekend, or the plans that they have for the week and I think "Oh yea, people can have lives and do things that they want to do." I miss having plans, I miss having people over, I miss life. I find myself starting to resent the fact that I'm going to be in school for the next two and a half years. But, it's more in my hands than I tend to remember. I can give myself a break and a life, even if the professors don't. I'm working on it...

...Michael's not feeling so well these days. Though he tells me he's not sick, I'm not too convinced. He's certainly not normal Michael. I hope he gets better soon because I've gotten kind of fond of his antics. I've been shoving popsicles down his throat and I think it's working.

Oh, and my mouth healed up just nicely.

Catch Up

So apparently I stink at this whole blogging thing. Who knew?

Well, my wisdom teeth came out with no problem. The medication, however, made things quite miserable for about a week. I'm back eating normal human food, which is a relief. Michael's really getting a kick out of using the syringe the doctor gave me at my check up. (Does that surprise anyone?)

My mom's been up here visiting for the past week. We've been enjoying her company a lot. She leaves tomorrow, but it feels like she just got here. Have I mentioned she's the best cook in the world? I was pleasantly reminded of that fact this week. (But the clothes fitting a little more snugly is a little less pleasant.)

My college roommate, Carly, and her fiance are coming up here on Thursday. I can't wait to see them. This will be a great week. Totally ending my summer on a good note, that's for sure.

With that...

The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom...

Okay, so in approximately 10 hours, I will be sitting in at the oral surgeon's office drifting off to sleep as the doctor prepares to pull out all four of my wisdom teeth.

Now, I've been putting this day off for years (seriously), and I am really quite nervous. I know that I'll be fine, as everyone keeps assuring me, but it's still uncomfortable. Thankfully, my wonderful Michael is going to be with me all day. He's promised to take care of me, which I know he will do so well.

This week my diet will consist of tropical Jello, mashed potatoes (flakes, not the real stuff), cheesecake pudding, vanilla ice cream and FlavorIce(here's to you, EFurstie).

Wonder how chipmunk-esque I'll look. Maybe I'll have to post some pictures...We'll see.

See you on the other side, with a few less teeth, but hopefully a little more wisdom.

So, we're going to try this blog thing out. I've never been too great at keeping up with these things, but hopefully I can improve. We'll see how well we keep this updated in the coming months, especially after school starts back up. Anyway, just wanted to start this up. Grace and peace.
