Although I’ve been getting a lot done, I feel like I still have so much to do. I’m thrilled to have the new Chickiedee site up and running, and I’m working feverishly to re-stock the shop. Aside from all of that, Ron and I have been doing a bit of early Spring cleaning as well as making a few big decisions. If we want to grow our family, we really need a larger home. After nearly 7 years, we’ve outgrown our current one – correction, I’ve out grown our current one. I have so many hobbies and things, that I’ve done a good job filling up our home on my own, hahaha. So, we met with our amazing Realtor last Friday to get the ball rolling on selling… and buying a new one. Fingers crossed that all goes smoothly.
Then, I’ve recently been into the Orthodontist a couple of times for a consultation, x-rays, molds, etc. You see, I’ve been super lucky growing up by having straight teeth, but I’ve had a baby fang all this time and a few years ago the adult one came in behind it! Sharp as ever, too. That adult fang pierces my tongue once in a while – ouch! I had a consultation when the adult fang first came in. They estimated nearly $10k and 18 months. Eek! So, I kept putting the idea of braces on hold, because that was way too much and way too long. Plus, I don’t want to look like a twelve year-old… again. Well, after some encouragement from the Mr. I decided to go in for a second opinion. I’m glad I did, too. I should expect to have them on for about 9 months, and at a fraction of the cost. Although I haven’t given the green light, I think I’m leaning toward yes. I thought I had dodged the bullet of having to get braces. Darn. I’ll keep you posted on what I decide to do. Have you had braces? Any advice?
