After delaying a couple of months due to sickness, job change, and the lack of health insurance, I finally started my phototherapy treatments last Friday. Basically, it’s like standing up in a tanning booth. I’ll go three times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays) up until our wedding in June so I’ll probably be a couple of shades darker by then. LOL

So far it seems to be going okay. I mean, my skin hasn’t completely fallen off or anything scary like that. It’s a pain to have to get up really early on those mornings and trek over there, but hopefully it’ll all be worth it in the end. Cross your fingers folks.

This is totally random but I was searching for something on my blog and came across a post on 3/23/06 about making lists. Funny, I don’t make lists as often as I did back then when I think about it now, but my job situation has changed a lot so maybe that has something to do with it. Anywho, I had posted something I had received in an email and thought it might be fun to fill it out with current answers, especially the food part since we’ve discovered my food allergies. What would your answers be? (I posted the old list in black type and put my new answers in green next to them to see the changes.)
