Glowing

I just spent $600 on a splint for my mouth...to keep it open. All this time, my hubs tries to get me to shut it and here I go buying something to keep it open...

I really didn't by this nasty little mouth piece because I wanted it. You see, I have been having this horrid jaw issue and well it is resulting in surgery on NEXT Wednesday. Bad part: Surgery & $600 splint/mouth piece Good part: Only $42 out of pocket for surgery AND a few days off of work that I don't HAVE to do anything.

My whole "new business venture" is REALLY taking off. I have discovered that shipping is pretty cheap on party baskets, so I have been sending them off to friends and they have been doing SCENTSY basket parties for me. I have started a blog plus I also have a website that people can order from.

As with most teenagers, life is a struggle at times. I am happy to say that my daughter has seemed to have a good last month... Good grades, no missing homework, no major issues, good behavior, good attitude (mostly) and she has gotten back involved in her church youth group. She even helped CLEAN at the house. I about fell over dead! Now if those boys would just leave her alone, it would be perfect.

This weekend my friends (hubby & wife) are having a 40th birthday party. I am getting the honor of making the cake for the luau. I have a million and one thoughts of what I should do...

I am also glowing today because I feel so honored! I am actually a Featured Friend, over on Our B Life, and would like to send a big THANK YOU over that way! Our B Life is a great blog that I have ended up reading on a regular basis and I enjoy every minute of it... I bet you would too. :) Go check it out...

Sucky about your mouth but awesome about your business! I have been staying with my 17 year old sister the past week and I DREAD when my kids are that age, although the tantrums these days have pretty much killed me too so I guess, whatever! :) Sounds like you have a good one though! :) Can't wait to see the cake and congrats on being a featured friend!

Sounds like things are going well, except for the surgery. YUCK! However, a few days off work would be nice, if you are not in pain.
