A whole week. Ouch. Have I kept you all in suspense?

Not much to tell.

My mouth really started to ache starting Friday and I still have pain but I think I am finally starting to feel better. I ate for the first time in a week on the left side of my mouth and it felt so weird. Kind of like a massage. I think my teeth have shifted back a bit now that there is room because my bite feels different.

I attempted to snowboard on the weekend at a friends house and it didnt go so well. The snow was too powdery and it took a lot of effort to get down the hill. It was quicker walking up the hill.

I still havent started my Christmas shopping yet. One week left to shop.

I have Christmas celebrations on the 25th of December and the 26th of December. No plans for New Years yet.

Kim is still pregnant. We hung out yesterday and I got to meet Maya (Luke and Annes baby) and Emily (Dan and Brendas baby.) Both babies are extremely cute. Babies are so exciting even tho they dont do much of anything.

Well day two proved to be a little painful. I woke up this time with blood on my pillow and duvet. Im a little pissed about that. And everytime I swallowed my mouth hurt. It felt like the pressure of swallowing was going to rip my stitches out. I stayed at home today. I shamelessly slept till 3:30pm. Drugs help alot.

I thought for sure my best bud Kim would induce herself into labour tonight. She is a balloon, due in two weeks and she still went out to teach her final tap dance class. I give her a week and she'll have the baby. I am extremely privilaged to be able to be her coach in the delivery room. Am I equipped...I think not. I will take any suggestions or advice.

The wisdom teeth pulling session was a success. I feel darn good. No pain so far although popping advil and tylenol maybe has something to do with. Im wondering if the second day is worse.

Anyways, it only took an hour and I was back at home. I was super tired so I went straight to bed. Woke up at one point to go the the bathroom and there was blood all over my face and pillow. That sucked until I realized that it was an old pillow case that I can throw out and not one of my good ones. I think I am over the bleeding stage now.

I get the other 2 pulled January 6, 2004. It will be nice to have them out, over and done with and then I can take steps into getting braces. Yes, I have this all planned out in my pretty little head. And after braces I go for the teeth whitening. I want to smile all the time and have people go wow, shes got a great smile!

I attended our 3 annual Wal-Mart Christmas party tonight. It was pretty good. A little depressing. I always feel so out of place with function like these as I tend to be one of the few who is still SINGLE and not married/engaged/etc. But I sucked it up and asked one of my managers if I could sit with her and her family. I ended up leaving in a better mood then when I arrived so I am glad I went. I also won a door prize too.

The food was really good. Not your traditional beef or turkey but instead there was lasagne and meat balls...and all the other usuals like buns, cheese, veggies. The social committee did a really fine job this year.

As you can see I got rid of the dumb-ass enetation comments and went with Haloscan just like Luke and Anne. Enetation was getting so bad that there would appear to be no comments posted but when I went in to look there were comments posted. So I think Haloscan will work out much better.

OK, I lied. Here are lots of pics of my board. I uploaded them to my web site so all you have to do is click here to see them.

Also, here is a pic of my new coat and my new board pants.(Mine are the blue ones that match my coat.)

I am making a scarf to match my coat as it is going to be an everday coat too. Its a really awesome coat. Its really light but warm. It also has all these hidden zip compartments. I keep finding new ones all the time. The pants are like that too.

As of 6:30pm I am feeling a whole lot better. I didnt go to work today because I was still feeling pretty crummy. I think in the last hour I have started to feel like myself again.

Hopefully this is it for the flu bug. I need to stay well since next Tuesday is the day I get my left side of wisdom teeth pulled. Ghastly Fun!

It still might be a little bit before I get the pics up of my new board but here is a link to the Burton sight so you can see what it looks like on the it is, but not the right colour...mine is a medium blue and the underside is a sage green.
