Thanks RahRahluv, and it must be the alignment of our moons and such which gave us some awesome teeth. :D

July Adjustment was great.
I had the upper, left lateral repositioned once again. That lower left pre-molar was added back in after a short break. I'm having the remainder of my bridge severed to incorporate plans for my implant to replace the missing upper left molar. I am in an upper 18x25 stainless wire and my lowers are in an 18x25 Bioforce wire from GAC. I got clear ligs and powerchains, and my teeth are really sore today. I had taken pics and uploaded all onto lmy aptop and now Photoshop seems to have died on me. I defragged, ran recovery disk, deleted files, programs and followed everything to do online except delete my whole hard drive because I can't find my darn OS disk. And still Photoshop CS2 keeps telling me that my scratch disk is full. OMG... Seriously, this week is a bad week for me and computers. I'm thinking of just buying a new laptop... actually, I have been, but I love my SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM so much!!! Stupid CS2!!!! Anyhow, maybe I will edit pics at work and then upload them. We'll see but I will get them up here soon.

melissa - My teeth? White? Hardly...

RahRahLuv - I'm on my way to better!

After my adjustment yesterday, I did not think I would make it to happy hour today. My teeth deceived me and I surely made it through my happy hour, chips and crunchy onion rings didn't stop me. My teeth are not sore today but my gums are getting caught up and I have small sores forming. I have the wax on and have been drinking more water.

Update on my laptop - It is in the intensive care unit and that means no work for me!

HOwdy! Thanks for the welcome back!

I did upgrade my hard drive to a 250gb from an 80gb. My computer runs better than before, it's much faster and I don't have any more errors. If I were to have bought the upgraded version of my computer, it would have set me back around $3400. So I was happy that I could rehabilitate my old one. for $700. I went fishing at the pier yesterday and caught a bunch of mackerel, jacksmelt, and one halibut. My arm is still sore from reeling them in, after 2 hours of constant baiting, casting , and reeling them in, I just wanted to sit down and have a sip of soda in between casting and reeling but that was not in the stars for me. I did not get to brush my teeth that day.... until I got home. But I stayed awake for a total of 36 hours! My teeth were pampered once I got back home.

OH POO!!!!!! My computer is back in the hospital! Logic board went ballistic and now I'm using a loaner computer. It looks so small compared to mine. Anyhow, I won't be posting any pics until after all is fixed and my Adobe Creative Suite is reinstalled. Until we meet again. BTW I have an adjustment coming up again next Wednesday, I'm excited because we'll be working on opening up the gap for my implant site!
