So my surgery is in only 13 days. I know. So crazy. As I will be down for a long time post surgery, there is so much I am trying to get done! I will be eating through a syringe for hopefully only a month to 2 months #crossmyfingers So I am hunting for a really good blender. I have been told to get a Vitamix But those are way too pricey. I know "you get what you pay for" but I can't pay for that, lol. So the question is, does anyone know of a pretty good blender that isn't quite as much money as the Vitamix? Or have a vitamix they would let me borrow before the surgery and I'll pre make as much of the food as I can?? I'll clean your car and your whole house for a year :) Anyone?

So my computer is still down, and it makes blogging and other internet activity not as enjoyable. Luckily my sweet mamma and papio gave me a little keyboard that plugs in to my ipad, so I can type. But everything is tiny and half of the pages don't load, lol. Like this one. I have tried not to talk to people much about my surgery. (excpet Mike, of course. He's heared a lot of surgery talk, poor guy) Before, like when I first started down this road of brackets and chains and wires, oh my! The surgery seemed like it was never going to happen. After a long time of thinking it was something that would never happen, we started talking about it, and I was really excited! Then we met with the surgeon and I was really happy. There was actually a light at the end of this six year long tunnel!Now it seems to be approaching much faster than I would like it to. As the days get closer and closer I get more and more scared. I'm realizing that this is really happening, and it isn't someing "in the future" or something that "might happen" It's happening, and right now! less than 3 weeks away, and I can't stop the butterflies from fluttering around in my stomach. So many things so be excitied, and completely scared about. As I am posting this, I'm listening to Pandora and Ingrid Michaelsons song, Keep Breathing, is playing. I guess that's what I'll do, "just keep breathing" There are much worse things, but unfortunately knowing that, doesn't make me any less nervous. Keeping my fingers crossed for a carefree 2 weeks, and a quick recovery.

My computer is still down, so I'm still just using the iPad. Hence the reason I haven't updated the blog in a long while. I don't know if it's the fact that Fall is slowly sneaking in, or what, but I am in total "Spring cleaning" mode. I have so many projects I want to start/finish =, and a house I want to revamp. I also feel like this blog needs some serious help. A clean fresh look. Agreed? There is so much I want to get done before the sugery, which reminds me, in the middle of changing the blog, I'm hoping to put in a link to another blog, full of all the info you need if getting reconstructive jaw surgery. I've been in touch with some fellow bloggers who have had, or are getting, jaw surgery. Their blogs have been so good to read, so I have been inspired to keep one as well. Hopefully if there is someone out there who is super nervous and looking for some answers, they will stumble across my blog, and I'll be able to answer some of their questions. I love the Fall so much. It is definitely, hands down, my favorite season. And even though the weathe hasn't dropped too much, the leaves are still changing, and the smell of Autumn and pumkin spice is in the air. Mike and I were on a walk the other evening, and he turned to me and asked, "You smell that?" I shook my head, and he told me it was the smell of Pumkins, and Fall. We sat down on the grass together, and smelled the new season, while the crisp air slowly turned our noses pink. I love that seasons have distinct smells. Each smell brings with it a unique memory from times past. It's so beautiful out right now. It makes me want to make stew, and wear cozy sweaters and cute cardis. The weather just needs to be a little chillier for that. The problem is, when the weather drops, it seems to always bring winter. And I don't like Winter as much.
