End of October

I got to go to K's last soccer game of this season. It was a pretty nice day considering it was the end of October. Here she is kicking the ball! :)
My sis D was visiting Colorado and got to see K's game too. 

Oct. 28th snow as of about 9:30am. It's still coming down and getting harder by the minute. Pretty huh? Poudre schools are closed but CSU is still open--for now at least. I love snow days though! :) Ok, this picture does NOT do it justice! There is at least 8 inches of snow out there. I just trudged through the snow over to the 7-11 behind our apartment. I had my big Sorel boots on and my pants above them and I still got snow all over my pants. Wow, there's a lot and it's still a coming! :) Cool.
Turns out we got about 18 inches of snow from this late October storm. Pretty sweet! :)

Wisdom take 2

Ok, so I went to the Dentist today. Turns out I really, truly do not have anymore wisdom teeth. So I only had two upper ones and the two bottom ones will never form. So that's good news, and a relief. Yet, unfortunately didn't answer all the things I hoped it would--like jaw pain and headaches...

I was diagnosed with TMJ though. Which does actually account for those symptoms. Which is great, but the device they wanted me to get for it, a mouth guard for night, was $600. So I said I would think about it and have been looking online. They actually sell quite a few different kinds. Oh and I do actually already have one that I bought a few months ago when I realized I was clenching my jaw at night. I can't wear that one though because it's huge and I have a gag relfex...

I do think I am going to try another over the counter kind though. I am just not sure if I could ever justify $600 for something like that. You know? Weird because I was ready to shell out however much it would be to get my wisdom teeth extracted, but that's different. I couldn't do that myself or anything, or go somewhere really cheap. So for now I am going to try a different kind and see if that helps. Well I am sure of one thing. It can't make it any worse! :)

So I am glad to have some answers, but now I am left with more questions too. I guess that's how life is though, right?

So, now that I am 25 I am pretty sure my other two wisdom teeth decided to form and start coming in. I had my top two wisdom teeth out when I was a Junior in college and at that point I didn't even have any "buds" for my bottom ones. Well, I have had pretty much constant headaches for at least 5 months now, jaw pain and I have noticed this week that there is definitely something going on back where my wisdom teeth would be. So I have an appointment tomorrow to see the Dentist and hopefully get some answers. I don't mind the oral survey, in fact I remember my first time being very interesting and fun when it all was wearing off. :) I just want to be able to eat Thanksgiving dinner like normal..... I guess we will see tomorrow though. Maybe it's all just in my head. (Get it...LOL)

We went to Anderson Farms this weekend and had a great time. I got to catch up with my bestie and in the pic above you can see that things have been busy around her farm. Her Pigmy goats are having babies left and right. Aren't they cute?!?!? Ok, you can only see one baby in that pic, but there are several in that pin. Also while we were in the pumpkin patch another goat had 2 babies.

We also got to see J's friends B and J and J's wife J. So it was a cold day, but a nice time to catch up with good friends! :)
