hey everyone sorry i haven't been on in a couple of days but today marks my 2 weeks with my braces!! YAYY!! lol just a billion more to go. So i'm happy to say that with my molar bands i've been able to eat more foods. i had a soft cheese burger on Monday for dinner it was kind of painful but i was able to do it:) And last night for dinner i had a Super Burrito man! can i say satisfaction!! it took me a little longer than it usually would but i did it.

At night, I can't sleep because I am clenching my teeth together, resulting in sore front teeth because my 1st pre molars prevented this which are no longer there.
Not a ton of new stuff to say, as I've only been here a day LOL, but I did want to have a blog entry to my name so I could feel truly accomplished!
I have an ortho appointment on Friday, which will be my first since Dec. 3 when I had these new screw-type things added to my braces. Sorry I don't know the official name. Screw-type things is the best way the ortho knew how to describe them, so that's all I've got. :p
