We finally got everything organized into our new place. My goodness, it took such a long time. I guess it's just a reminder that one only needs to move if they really need to. So much work and it gets so old and tiring real easily. Oh well. Michael and I really like our new place. We especially like all the space we have. We went from having a small one bedroom apaprtment to now having a two bedroom one. We also have a food storage closet!! So awesome. It makes me feel even more like a good LDS person knowing that we have space to stow away our food and everything. So nice!! Anyway, we didn't go to church today because we wanted to get everything done before the crazy semester starts. I hope all goes well for the both of us. I have 18 credits that I'm taking. I have never done that before. Michael has four classes. Two are online. Hehas never done that before, so he's a little worried. I know that we will do fine though.

Since 10:00 this morning, we have been doing nothing except moving into our new place. Some of our stuff wasn't packed, so we had to deal with that. We also didn't have enough boxes and that posed a problem. It has been such an exhausting day. I have just been cleaning, while Michael and a few of our neighbors have been making endless trips to get all our stuff over to University Village. Michael is just packing up the last of everything. I hope our next place is worth all the hassle of all this moving agony. I'm sure it will be.

So, on Monday, I had to take a nice trip to Dr. Lewis' office. He is a great dentist here in Rexburg. I didn't think much of anything, but I should have because I hadn't seen a dentist in like the past ten years. I guess I am just a little scared of them because of all the pain they can inflict on people. After my exam, I was told that I needed to get my wisdom teeth taken out and get a tip root removed as well. My appointment for this procedure was supposed to be the next Friday... only like 4 days away. That was yesterday. As Michael and I were driving, I started bawling my eyes out. I knew that I was going to be given a general anesthesia, but I was still freaked out. People can die from that sort of stuff if it's not done right. I got to Dr. Hicks' office and he and his nurses all took great care of me. I was sitting in the operation chair and Dr. Hicks was asking me about what I did yesterday. It was supposed to be a distraction so I wouldn't notice the IV and catheter that was about to be inserted into my right arm. He couldn't find the vein or whatever it was that he needed to insert the needle into. He then started looking at my wrist and at the top of my right hand. I was freaked out about that and told him to try to my left arm. Luckily it worked. The needle was inserted and before I knew it I was waking up from the procedure. It literally felt like on a 2 minute nap. I must have asked the nurse for my surgery cap, because I left the office with it. Anesthesia is the weirdest thing ever. I didn't feel any pain for the first 20 minutes or so, but then it kicked in. Michael took me to Jamba Juice, but I couldn't and didn't want to drink the smoothie because my mouth was so numb and full of blood. It was disgusting. As we got closer to Rexburg, I realized that the smoothie Michael got me had bananas in it and that I wasn't allowed to eat it. We went to the Jamba that's her in town. I also went to Broulim's and talked with Steve about my surgery. When I got home, I should have gone to bed or at least taken a nap, but that didn't happen. I watched Ratatoullie. Such a good movie and one of my favorites. When that was over, we went over to a neighbor's house and played the Wii. Then we got back home and watched Baby Mama. Finally, around midnight, I took more medications and went to bed. Now, I'm here blogging. So far, I have atteneded a baptism and went to the part afterward. It has been a productive day. At least for someone that should be at home and taking meds and resting. Oh well. I'm a little upset though because I didn't get my wisdom teeth. I did end up with a nice bruise on my right arm too. I'm a trooper.
