It's been awhile. I figure it's time for a small (somewhat random) update.

Saint Charles was pretty awesome and we had a fantastic time at the concert. We also had a great time at Medieval Times in Schaumburg. I didn't want to go home. :)

I managed to gather the entire collection of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic toys from McDonald's. I wasn't able to get Rarity during the promotion (they never seemed to have her) and had resigned myself to only having a partial collection, but my fiance surprised me by ordering her from somewhere. My desk is 20% cooler now.

My fiance and I recently joined a local Celtic/Viking reenactment group. I've never done reenactment before, but my inner history nerd is loving every minute of it. The first event is going to be this summer, so I hope to be ready by then.

Speaking of my fiance, I really should find another way to refer to him on here. Hmm.

I went to an emergency dentist today for some jaw pain and swelling that I've had all week. They couldn't do much for me since I can't open my mouth all the way, but I did manage to get some antibiotics and prescription ibuprofen and Tylenol. I'm supposed to go back in a week or so as an emergency patient, but I honestly don't think I'll be able to do that because of transportation issues. I have a regular appointment set up for the beginning of June, though, so I'll probably wait until then (assuming the prescriptions work).

My Walk to Rivendell has been on hold since we got back from Saint Charles. Life's gotten in the way, so I haven't been able to keep up my normal schedule. I'm also changing up my workouts a bit and the new stuff I'm doing doesn't translate to mileage very well. We'll see what happens.

I think that about covers it for now.

I had my first optometrist appointment in nearly ten years today (well, Thursday morning). I have an astigmatism in both eyes (used to only be in my left eye) with a touch of near-sightedness, which is new. I get my new glasses the week after next, which means that I'll finally be able to see! Yay!

And being able to pass the eye exam for my license renewal next month*? Double yay!

*Disclaimer: While I do have my license, I'm aware my vision sucks right now and, as a result, I have not been driving. My fiance does all the driving, so... there we are.

My last doctor's appointment for awhile was today. Nothing was helping with my issues, so my doctor is referring me to a gynecologist to see if something more can be done. I have to wait for them to call me to set an appointment, though; they need the results of a pregnancy test and stuff in my file before they can do anything else. In the meantime, my doctor put me on Ortho Tri-Cyclen. I hope it works out because this week has been hell.

On the bright side, at least I didn't have to have blood drawn again.

I was a bucket of nerves, but I went to my appointment this morning. The doctor was pretty nice and talked me through some of the things that could be causing my issues. He said that there's a chance I could be anemic, but I had to get blood drawn for testing. I also have to go back next week to get a pelvic ultrasound (which I'm not looking forward to), with another appointment to go over all of my results on the 14th of October. Whew.

Because of all this going on, as well as other things, I've had to put my Walk to Rivendell challenge on hold; it's disappointing, but I'm hoping I can pick it up again in the next week or two. I could just "cheat" and count my normal walking, but I'd like to keep this as a separate exercise.

On a somewhat better note, I bought more craft supplies online the other day. I ended up getting more perler beads from one store, and a bunch of random supplies that were on sale from Joann's site. I also got free shipping on my Joann order, so that was awesome. The day after I ordered, I got a coupon in my e-mail for free shipping on another order, so I may have to find something to use that on. So many things to play with~
