Toes: I elevated them while I slept last night and they seem better today. I will try to do that for the next few nights. They did seem to improve as the day went on yesterday; some of the feeling returned after walking around and the ones that were very swollen reduced a little. Unfortunately, I'm in the office and can't keep them elevated during the day. I will try to get up and walk around the building a few times today, however.
Allergies: Allegra seems to do a good enough job of keeping the sneezing and itchy eyes at bay. The neti pot helps with the post nasal drip, but is not working as well anymore, now that everything is blooming. I'm interested in trying stinging nettle leaf (in a supplement), but that will have to wait until after next paycheck. I am waiting until I can order colostrum again, I want to see if that will help too. The neti pot is a hassle, but at least it helps pretty significantly.
Weather is looking up this weekend! I want to go biking!
I ate pancakes yesterday. So tasty. A few little pimples to show for it. Yes, they were regular wheaty pancakes (well, chocolate chip). I had an egg and bacon with them to help mitigate any hypoglycemic symptoms and I was fine.
I got my period yesterday, much earlier than expected.
Wedding: Hulky and I are tossing around ideas for favors & programs. We'd like to have some kind of print-out that can be left out for our guests after the ceremony, with a basic announcement "Tasha & [Hulky] were married in front of friends & family on July 13, 2013 at the [my last name] homestead in [my hometown]" and information on our registry/honeymoon website. I'm thinking of making a "wedsite" where we could also host pictures and videos that people take, or possibly set up a place for people to upload their photos to share with us. We'd link to the registry from that site. We want these programs to work for people who cannot attend, so we can mail them out too. I think I'll probably design something in Photoshop or Word, otherwise I think we can design something for pretty cheap online, possibly less than $1 per program (need 50-60, I think, so there are extras). We'll just need to buy nice paper and be stealthy about using somebody's color printer (my mom has a good one, but I'm worried that she'll notice the ink levels reduce =P).
I want to make my template/trial infinity dress next month. I'm going to need something like 5 yards of stretch fabric (probably stretch jersey) to make it! For the template dress, I think I will just use an old bed sheet for the skirt. I'm mostly concerned about getting the circle skirt measurements right, and the waistband. The rest seems fairly easy and any messy seams will be hidden. I should have enough fabric leftover if I buy the jersey for the straps to make two sets, otherwise I can just reuse the straps on the final dress if they come out right. That means I have to pick a color! Still leaning towards a pastel/baby blue.
We want to jump into the pool after the ceremony ("You may now take the plunge!") but I'm not too keen on getting married in a swim suit. I may put my bathing suit on under the dress and while Chip reads the last announcement, I'll take it off.
Also, I'm going to plan on getting a pixie cut (I may get it trimmed soon, the back is getting ridiculous) 2-3 weeks before the party, then bleach it 1-2 weeks before, and pink soon after that .
Hulky's best man will probably not be able to make it out . Flights from Flint, MI to here around that time are over $300. I don't know if we'll be able to afford his ticket, but we're going to try. Unfortunately, Jet Blue doesn't fly out from there and they are usually pretty cheap.
