Life in the Fast Lane

Yesterday I took my first Zumba class. Much to my surprise, I actually kept up very well. I wasn't surprised by the fact that I had fun though. It seems I've legitimately picked up some moves in recent years. Yeah! Of course, when I look at myself in the mirror, I still seem to appear awkward, but I think that probably comes from the extra weight on my hips and thighs that I'm working on losing, and my height. But I had fun and had a great work out, and that's what counts!

Dad's going to start an aggressive Chemo regiment in 2 weeks, but he's still in very good spirits and looking forward. He's awesome.

A surprise venue has come through for the wedding and I'm getting excited about it. It just seems like it was ment to be, down to some of the little details. So we're getting ready to make the big announcement about date and time, hopefully this weekend.

In other news, it looks like I'll be heading back to the doctor's office myself. Having 2 periods/month even on BCP isn't normal. Seems like my one ovary is having some issues, so it's time to get it looked at. I've honestly been avoiding this for a couple months, but My Sailor lovingly reminds me that I'm not doing us any favors. I guess I'm just not sure how much more medical drama I can handle, but ignoring it doesn't make it go away. So this month I'm tracking down a new OBGYN to get and ultrasound and see what's going. Upside is, I'm not feeling the intense pains I had before - though with severe Endo, that's not necessarily a good thing, but no use in speculating until I have all the information.

Either way, we've been prepared for a while to have a family however it's supposed to happen.

Other than that, we're back to work, working on wedding planning, checking in with my family (which is a near daily thing of late), and trying to line up the money in time to work out the wedding. We have 3 months, so we should be able to get it hammered out by then. So many of my friends and family have come out of the wood work to help - the outpouring of love is just amazing.
