Can't Talk So I Will Blog

Good morning fellow blog readers.

Thank you for the positive response to my little experiment yesterday morning. I was talking to my husband about it and he told me how several people had paid his toll going across the bridge before when it used to be $3. I thought that was a pretty cool idea too. I think any ways that we can find to be nice to one another makes the whole world better. And I'm going to continue to try and think of ways to do that. If anyone has any ideas/suggestions, please let me know.

I spent some time at the orthodontist yesterday and got an expander put in. The idea behind it is to re-open that bone suture in the roof of my mouth. Hopefully, it will just take about two weeks. (fingers crossed that it will work AT ALL) It isn't particularly painful but it makes it very hard to talk. And it's even hard to eat and drink. Maybe this could be the solution to my diet problem. Except of the fact that all I seem to want right now is a chocolate milkshake. I wonder where the nearest McDonald's is.....

I've been practicing some meditations in "The Fine Arts of Relaxation, Concentration, and Meditation: Ancient Skills for Modern Minds", by Joel and Michelle Levey. I learned about one called "driving meditation" in which I wish for the people I pass by on the road that they find their way to peace and happiness. I approched that meditation with a truckload of skepticism, but I have to say I've noticed my heart opening up a little while I'm practicing it. Whad'dya know! Life is full of surprises, that's for sure.

What I'm trying to say is that I don't yet have any ideas for Project Nice, but I am very impressed and intrigued by what you're doing. I usually have limited energy for people beyond those I care about, and I admire those who are out there at Starbucks, etc. getting things done. You mentioned McDonald's chocolate shakes - I am a recovering addict (wish they made a patch or something for that stuff), so maybe I'll soon find myself buying one for the person behind me.

What is your orthodontist's plan for this round of braces? How long will you have to wear them?
