Yikes. See?

I went a whole month without writing. Eek. I've got to work on that whole thing.

Not a whole lot went on over the past month. Really. It was pretty typical, so there's nothing to really say about September. We did have a fun visit with Annette and Joseph and Kimball when they came in, though. Maybe it's part of being older, but I really enjoy spending time with my family. I always think it's such a shame that Kristin and her family live so far away. Brett's never even met them! We're thinking about trying to take a trip out that way sometime soon, so maybe we'll get to see them.

So, something really weird happened yesterday. A couple of times before, my foot has started to swell on the bottom kind of up by my toes. It's been totally random, but it goes away after a day or so, and I can still function, so I haven't worried about it. Up until yesterday.

Wednesday night I notice my left eye was a little bit puffy, but I figured it was because I was tired, since it was pretty late. Well, Thursday morning I woke up and my eyelid was swollen shut! It was huge! I looked like a total freak. Well, I tried icing it off and on for a couple hours and took some Aleve, but nothing changed. So Brett left work early to drive me to the doctor (seeing as it would have been totally unsafe for me to drive with only one eye). Well, he decided that I might have a skin infection, so he put me on antibiotics. Well, I disagree with him seeing as I don't have any other signs of infection, but it's a better explanation than "My eyelid felt like randomly swelling shut." I've been on the antibiotic for over 24 hours now, so I'm not contagious, even if I was before. It's still a tiny bit swollen, but it's way better than yesterday.

That's pretty much it. Today is Mom's birthday, and we're having dinner with the family tonight. I'm totally excited! I know Mom and I butted heads a lot while I was a teenager, but now that I'm not such a "twit" (ha, I can still laugh at myself) I really love spending time with her. She's such a fun person! And I am making her birthday cake for Sunday when we go down for General Conference. Exciting!

  1. Yikes on the random swelling! Hopefully you'll get that under control without further problems. Have fun celebrating with your mom and enjoy Conference. What are you guys doing for laundry these days? My parents are really looking forward to your visit.
