I’ve been holding out… partially because I’m embarrassed, partially because I’m a wee bit freaked out. Next Friday, at 11:15am, I have an appointment with an orthodontist. I am getting traditional braces on my lower teeth and Invisalign trays for my top teeth. Yes, at [almost]40 years old, I am finally getting my teeth straightened… and it couldn’t come at a worse time!
Why is it such a bad time you ask? Because I’m writing a food blog for god’s sake and wearing Invisalign trays SIGNIFICANTLY changes how, what, when and where I will be able to eat!!! For almost TWO YEARS no less!!!! Though, I will do everything in my power to keep things as ‘normal’ as possible when it comes to my love of food.
But that’s not why I’m posting this story here. The reason I am telling you this is because I want to document my Invisalign / “braces when you’re old” experience via a blog. What I want to know –valued readers — is do you want me to talk about it here? Along with my food experiences? Or would you rather I setup a new blog… dedicated strictly to the pain and suffering I incur through this procedure?
Honestly… what do you think? I am still going to do my food reviews and eat as much as I can… but I’m also going to juggle it while maintaining all the “rules and regulations” of the trays. Should be pretty interesting…
In the meantime… I can guarantee that I am going to eat like there’s no tomorrow between now and next Friday.
