Indiana Jones and the Temple of Dryer Lint
After a weekend including completely ransacking our home office and trying to make sense of all the business/wedding chaos, I've come up for air.
Update on the Wedding Front: I'm shaking the dust off my wedding planner hat (which is bright blue and has a long feathery plume, at least in my mind) and kicking things into high gear. We've booked the reception hall, we've booked the church as of today, and we have chosen our bridal party. Next on my list: photographer, DJ, and try on wedding dresses. I cannot wait to try on every wedding dress I can get my little hands on. My mother is convinced that we'll "just know" which one is perfect, but I have a feeling I may try on several (read: is a hundred too many?) dresses before I can narrow it down. I'm so excited, though. Our wedding date is just a few months away!
Update on Diabetes-Stuff: To follow-up on my eye dilation appointment from Thursday, my eyes are looking very healthy. I used to see an optometrist for my dilations, with bi-yearly checks at the Joslin Eye Clinic. Since moving to CT, I've started seeing a retinologist, who shines that light into my eye to the point where I feel like I'm having an out-of-body experience. I wonder if I had any of these spots a few years ago, but my optometrist wasn't trained to detect them.
"What do you see?" I asked him, tears streaming down my face as my eyes revolt against what feels like the sun shining directly into them.
"Nothing, Kerri. One teeny hemorrhage, but I can barely see that." He hands me a tissue to blot my eyes. "What do you see?" I can hear the smile in his voice.
"I can't see a damn thing, Dr. Retina."
He laughs and takes the light off my eyes. "Looks good, kid. No need for a three month follow-up. Let's move to six. I'll see you the month before you become Mrs. Sparling, okay?"
And on the A1c front, I'm hoping to have that result soon. And taking a cue from the fact that a blood sugar of only 202 mg/dl makes me feel like I'm sucking on a popsicle made of dryer lint, I'm hoping it's a good result.
Update on Indiana Jones: This is just as crucial as the wedding, and in about the same timeframe. The fourth (and final?) Indiana Jones installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is being released in May 2008 and the title was announced last night. I am a huge Indiana Jones fan - "You call him Doctor Jones, doll!" - and I can't wait until this movie is released.
He is just too cool.
