Um, did you know that today is August 1st! What!? I know. I'm stunned too! That means 23 days until college move-in. That means stress levels are about up over and through the roof 10-fold. I am beyond not ready and don't think I will be ready ever. Somehow we have to start packing and buying things I'll need which is another impossibly daunting task. Really I'm just still in denial and don't want to think about it. Right now I'm pretty content just staying here in my little room for the rest of my life. Yoga Gods...give me strength!
In other news, my facial swelling has gone down a bit, but my jaw is still terribly sore. The worst is sleeping since laying down is not comfortable with the blood flow and I can't lay directly on the side of my face. I wake-up a lot in pain and with a headache, but I'm still truckin' without any more Advil either 😉 Also, if you want to really feel pain after your wisdom teeth come out, do a handstand or other upside down inversion. You will experience some agonizing pain (yoga is a good time!).
In other other news, my mom had off of work yesterday so we decided to go on an excursion. She planned on taking me up to Jenny Jump Forest, but let's just say it was a total fail/ We never even found the right trails so we left and ended up driving around in the car for hours trying to find somewhere else to go. We ended up at the old playground park she used to take my brother and I to when we were little. I climbed the monkey bars and flipped around like a gymnast for awhile. We need to plan our adventures a little more next time 😛

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Slow wisdom teeth recuperation. I go back on the 9th to the surgeon so he can check the healing. Hopefully all is okay even though my swelling and soreness is still there.
+ Lots and lots of good cooking. I'm starting to re-think my life's plan. Maybe I should go to culinary school instead. Cooking is my true passion...o I'm having a not-even-quarter-life-crisis!
+ You should hopefully see the new Strength and Sunshine within the next two weeks! I am so excited to take this blog up a notch! (This whole process has added to my stress so much though. I will be so happy when it's done.)
+ This made me smile 🙂
So tell me:
+ Any recent fun outdoor adventures you've gone on?
+ When is the last time you swung on a swing or did flips on the monkey bars? I don't even know, but Thursday was fun! I always lacked upper body strength as a kid (being a dancer, my legs were where my strength was), and that's why I failed at gymnastics. Well I could totally do it now!
+ Like I keep telling you I have so many recipes to share! What type of recipes do you want to see next week? Breakfast? Dinner? Sweet? Savory? Granola? 😉
