It seems like I've stayed very busy doing a lot of nothing lately.

So Jordan and I finally saw The Dark Knight!  (hence the music change) It was pretty fantastic and I'd love to see it again! I'm a fan of most superhero-ish movies and I'm certain we will own  this one when it comes to DVD. I've come to re-learn here very recently how absolutely nerdy I really am, so it comes as no surprise that I enjoyed this movie so much. I'm not saying you have to be a nerd to enjoy batman, there are so many other evidences of my nerd-dom besides loving the biggest movie in the country right now. 

On the teeth side of things; nothing much has changed. I saw the dentist & the periodontist and they were not all too concerned, said they'd seen it before and it could be months before all the swelling goes down. No nerve damage, things are healing well, but it's unfortunate that I'm still without feeling & movement. I have learned to deal with it... for example, right now I'm drinking a glass of milk and having some lovely spoonfuls of rainbow chip icing. Straight from the tub. (sorry Dr. Peterson.) I have a (dull/numb) sweet tooth. :)

One good thing about all this tooth mumbo-jumbo? I'm fitting into things that I havent in years. I dont know how much I weighed prior to this insult, but I'd guesstimate that I've lost somewhere in the range of 10lbs. I cant keep my "fat pants" up, and my "skinny jeans" have never looked better.... and that's without spanx. :) I want to shop my pants off, but i'm certain that once I can actually eat and taste again I'll want to eat everything in sight. 

I have started on our vacation scrapbook and am super excited to be back in the crop-swing. My poor apartment has taken a beating, with most every flat surface in the living room covered with machines or paper or trash or other accouterments. I dont think I've scrapbooked anything since March, other than the occasional greeting card. I've got a long way to go- we took like 300 pictures, and I'm working in an 8.5x8.5 album! I made a baby card for a shower yesterday, and I think it may have been one of the cutest cards ever... which I didnt take a picture of! I'll have to replicate it.  I love getting creative!

Speaking of creative, we finally invested in Creative Suite 3. I am crazy stoked about this and am already talking to people about pictures- now I just need a few tutorials on this photoshop! 

This post echoes what most of my life looks like now; lots of rambling on, but saying very little.

Current song stuck in my head: The Beginning is the End is the Beginning by Smashing Pumpkins (whom I secretly enjoy hearing)

:) You make me laugh... because you're you! I don't know how to explain it, but you brightened my day just by reading this.

I need to learn how to be creative in scrapbooking. I never like how my pages turn out.
