10 more days!

YIKES we're getting married in 10 days. :) Actually, I'm surprisingly not freaked out or stressed out about it at all! It will be grand. http://www.theknot.com/ourwedding/KellyRobinson&GeoffreyMohr is our wedding website for those of you who haven't seen it. Email me if you want the password. We leave for Dallas in 6 days and we get in Wednesday morning. By this time next week we should have our marriage license and we'll have dropped our suit and dress off at Men's Warehouse and David's Bridal for steaming! :)

Okay this is funny - my friend Emily said this morning "oh Kristin from high school facebook messaged me this morning and asked me to join the service". I was like "WHAT?!" Emily is not military like AT ALL... just very random! I was so confused... then Emily explained that she meant she asked her to join FACEBOOK - not the Marines. That was slightly more normal - although still a little odd since we weren't particularly friends with Kristin. I just thought it was hilarious - "Hmmm... I just love the Army so much! Who should I ask to join me? OH!!! Emily!" Yeah, that would never happen.

So Geoff has a VERY HIGH pain tolerance. When he was a kid, he used to get HORRIBLE ear infections (side note: why do I use caps so much? ugh!). But his pain tolerance was so high that he wouldn't say anything to his mom until they were really bad, and then she'd take him to the doctor. The doctor once said "you need to bring him at the very first sign of pain, this has gotten really bad and it's not healthy". She was like "this was the first sign!" Similarly, Geoff's teacher at school used to ask him all of these questions about his home life, trying to determine if he was getting enough to eat at home because he would always eat so much at lunch! He was like "oh yeah, I had three hamburgers, a salad, and fries (or whatever) for dinner last night!" He was just a hungry kid. His poor mom though - always being accidentally accused of neglect!

Anyway, the reason for telling you about the pain tolerance is because last week Geoff was like "my tooth REALLY hurts". This only went on for a couple of days and he went to the dentist right away. Turns out his wisdom tooth came in and there wasn't room in his mouth for it, so food and stuff got in his gum because it had grown in weird, and it was VERY infected. They put him on penicillin for the infection and vicodin for the pain. Then he was to get it out yesterday. The reason he had to wait until yesterday was so the infection could actually go down a little before they did it. He has lost like 10 pounds in the past week because he can't eat much because of the pain. I think if I was in this much pain I would not be moving. He is a trooper. But yesterday he got it removed and he is in SO much less pain. Most people are down for a couple of days after they get wisdom teeth removed, but it's like he was just let out of prison! He worked on his motorcycle last night and took down a dining room table and chairs and moved them to a friend's condo (we got a new dining room set this weekend). Today he's picking up our new hutch, doing lawn work, and hanging up some shelves. Hilarious...
