You can always do the elope someplace warm thing ---- and then have a very informal (even potluck style) gathering once you get back from the honeymoon.

Man, I am grouchy today.
I made chicken soup last night. I could not restrain myself from eating two more slices of the gluten-free cake. The whipped coconut cream frosting was so much tastier after hardening in the refrigerator! I did not get a headache this time. I wonder if it was from the extra frosting I ate when I made it? That also would've explained the gas. I did get a bit bloated last night though. My gut felt really uncomfortable last, but it just felt like I was full of poop, not gas. Icky feeling, especially when it's probably not accurate.
I took 3mg of Melatonin last night and it knocked me out the way that 5-HTP used to. My legs went tingly and a little numb within 20 min of taking it, then I felt like I was about to fall asleep on my feet. Only, I didn't go to sleep right away. Hulky was feeling snuggly :o. I think I was asleep before 11, at least, but my alarm went off at 6 (needed extra time before driving Hulky to work). I took some sausages out of the casings this morning, fried them up in sausage grease from two nights ago, and had half with 2 eggs (over easy), saved the rest for lunch tomorrow. Lunch today will be chicken soup, apple with almond butter, and 1/2 an orange. I think I'm going to fry some sweet potato discs up in the rest of the sausage grease tonight. I forgot to defrost meat for dinner, didn't I? Damn. So close to have it all together! Oh wait, there's meat in the fridge that I haven't frozen yet. Score!
I'm pleasantly surprised to find that my teeth are no longer sensitive to citrus, but still VERY sensitive to cold (refrigerated orange slices = brrrrr). My commute is the perfect length to try oil pulling in the morning. I could keep a jar in the cup holder in case I need to spit the oil out earlier. I have a sensitive gag reflex =\ *cue jokes*. I'm about 4 months overdue for my bi-annual teeth cleaning. Might as well wait for the yearly appointment :D.
I skipped push-ups last night because I did laundry and my elbow was hurting really badly. I don't remember if I wrote about it here, but sometime last month, I smacked one of my elbows really hard off a door frame. Note to self: do not dress & walk at the same time. I don't remember which elbow anymore, but at some point after that, my right elbow started to hurt periodically. Sometimes I lean on it, and it hurts. Sometimes it hurts randomly. Yesterday afternoon, it hurt a lot. The pain started radiating up and down my arm. My right hand started feeling tingly. I even tried to drive home one-handed, which basically meant keeping my right arm low, on the shifter, and the left doing all the steering. I made an appointment for 11AM today with my primary doc. I also have a follow-up Thursday night with my gyn for the perpetual bleeding. Yes, that's still going on, albeit very lightly for the past two weeks.
And my toes are swollen/itchy again. Going to try to remember to bring that up at my appointment today.
Does anyone else think Mark Sisson looks absolutely adorable in the new photo at the top of the site? Such a cozy scene. I want to share hot beverages with him and chat about raw milk.
I thought it looked odd to see him fully clothed. lol

I didn't realize that's EXACTLY what made the picture a little odd to me!
Hope you get some answers at the doc. Make lists so you don't forget to ask things.
Why is my body INFLAMED? I need to stop eating that cake.
The doctor said my elbow problem is tendonitis. She offered to set me up with a physical therapist and I said I'd talk to my chiropractor (who has a background in sports medicine & PT). I mentioned the other stuff I'm dealing with (endless bleeding, constipation) and she said the doc I see tomorrow will probably give me some kind of pill to stop the bleeding. That will be a relief!
For my toes, she said it's athlete's foot. She told me to get shoes with a large toe box (Merrells?!), use foot powder in my shoes, wear sandals as soon as the weather allows ([URL="http://www.invisibleshoe.com/how-to-make-huaraches/"]make huaraches?[/URL]), and use athlete's foot cream. Sigh. We have some leftover from when Hulky had athlete's foot, so I guess I will start using that twice a day. I can't believe the tea tree oil hasn't fixed this yet! I think I was not using it consistently and stopped when my toes peeled because I thought that was bad, when that's just part of the healing process. I probably reinfected myself from my shoes. I will take a break from my moccasins for a bit, but they are my most minimalist shoes. The Old Navy sneakers I own are way too cushy, but the toes are well ventilated, at least.
Wedding stuff: the people that manage the manor (b&b) that was our #1 choice got back to me. They were out of the country and are having web issues, so they want me to call to discuss stuff. Ah! Nervous! I don't know what to say! I need to put together a list so I can just go through it systematically while I'm on the phone with them. I hope they aren't totally out of our imagined price range. I really need my parents to give me an idea of how much they can contribute.
hum..... I don't think you ever mentioned hulky having athletes foot. Its highly contagious! Scrubbing the tub and bleaching your sheets and socks is a must. Also - get some powder AF killer to put in all your shoes or you will just keep re-infecting. But - how nice to finally have a diagnosis! :) Should be an easy fix now that you know what it is.
I hope you are having fun with the wedding planning and not finding it too daunting or stressful. Remember when you make calls to these places - they are the experts and will probably just offer you the info they know you will need. I would just say - I'm getting married on ___________, can you tell me if your venue is available? and then they will take it from there :) Just don't let it overwhelm you. Often they have info they can email right away that will answer lots of your questions. :)
take a deep breath - and just dial! :)
