Going For It!!

There are two things in my life that I truly regret!

1. I regret that I never went to college and worked for a degree.
To many people that is just not a big deal but I have always felt incompetent and 'less than' because of that decision.

2. I have always wanted braces. I dislike my smile because of my crooked teeth. So many would say that is foolishness and a waste of money, it's possible I would agree to a point yet it is something, that in these days following Mark's death, I think about regularly. Maybe it's a way of self medicating or covering some sort of pain, I'm not sure; I only know I made an appointment.

All of my adult life I have cared for my children and husband. My children both had braces and in the later years of hubby's life we spent $$$$ for dentures for him because his teeth were so badly affected due to all of his illnesses.

I suppose I'm just saying it's time for me!!


Remind me when I am crying in pain that I really wanted to do this!!!!

Considering This Choice With Joy (I Think)


  1. Hey, if you can do it, why not? I've thought about braces myself. If I had the means, I would probably do it. :)

    Bless you, that's great that you are taking time for you.

  2. You go girl! I think your smile is beautiful, but it's about what you think. I know that I've gained 30 lbs with chemo; lost about 6 of them. Others tell me I look fine, but I don't feel fine. So, while I won't be investing in braces, I probably should invest in some sturdy wire to keep my mouth shut and not take on any extra calories!

    Thanks for checking in with me. Please let me know if there is anything further I can do for you.
