A dapple of my weekend

I haven't done a dapple of my weekend post in awhile, and while the new place isn't quite ready for a full picture debut, I thought a little sneak peek would be fun.

My weekend consisted of making chocolate chip cookies that fell apart in the middle, but oh well they tasted good, and only making the smoke detector screech once while using the oven. (I'm still adjusting to how quickly it heats up).



It also consisted of lots of unpacking, and settling in. We even swapped the dining room with the mister's work area. The table looks adorable and tucked away, and it gives Ben so much more space to work.


I was inspired for a new blog series and I came to some realizations about celebrating big events. (More to follow on both of these, I promise).

I also spent a decent amount of time icing my knee. I figured it was going to bother me with the move, but I was in so much pain at the end of last week I left work early Thursday (my knee was so inflamed it was actually hot!), and went to the doctor Friday morning. Luckily I found a new awesome doctor (and not the idiot I saw last time), who told me yes, I was misdiagnosed originally and my iliotibial band was never the issue. He thinks it might be something with my meniscus, but is waiting until I get an MRI done to make a final diagnosis.


All my friends and family have been sympathetic when I've told them, but honestly? Besides the pain (which is obnoxious and well, painful), I don't mind, because I love this new doctor and I'm excited we're going to get to the root of the problem. The idea of me no longer having chronic knee pain is nothing short of fabulous.

Plus, I'm fascinated when you can see inside parts of the body. When the doctor was looking at my x-rays I was grinning at Ben and whispering, "that's my knee - isn't that cool?" On the way home from the doctor's office I started asking Ben about MRIs (I've never had one), and how I hoped the doctor would let me look at that too. Ben just looked at me and said, "Oh my gosh, are you excited to get an MRI? What's wrong with you?" What can I say? I'm curious. And knowledge is power.

So that was my weekend. How was yours? Do you like seeing x-rays or scans of your body too? (There might be some interesting searches that bring people to my blog because of that. Remind me to check Google Analytics in about a week).

Happy Monday!

Lol. I can just see Ben's expression and hear his tone of voice when asking if you were seriously excited to get an MRI. I had to get a neck x-ray a few years back as I was having neck problems and it was really cool to see the bone structure of my body! So I totally get it. I would be curious to see the results too (so long as insurance 100% covered it because I assume an MRI or any sort of radiology procedure costs a pretty penny!)

My weekend was great. It was the perfect mix of being busy + having down time for me. :)

I love you, but I'm gonna have to side with Ben on this one. You're excited to get an MRI? That's a foreign concept to me. I severely dislike going to the doctors though, so much so, that I rarely go. I really love your apartment though!

Those cookies look DELISH even if they did fall apart!

I really hope they figure out what's going on with your knee ASAP - this has been going on way too long! Can't wait to hear the results of the MRI!

I get it. I totally get it. Seeing the inside of the body is super cool!! There's this exhibit at a museum in town that has actual human bodies on display with the skin removed. Some of them are of people that didn't take care of their bodies, others really healthy. It's super cool!
I have never had a real x-ray that I got to see, besides dental x-rays. Hopefully I get to see one someday! (as long as I'm healthy.)

Oh, my gosh! I would be the same way! Hehe. :) When my mom got hit by a car and had a bunch of x-rays done on her elbow, I was SO interested in them. It's just so neat to see the inside of your body and how it all looks. Have... fun? Hehe.

Good luck with your MRI! I had to get one done on my knee a few years back and I didn't enjoy it at all - but at least you'll more than likely get an accurate diagnosis so your knee can actually get fixed :) I was originally told I had a knee sprain and it ended up being a torn ACL - kind of a big difference, eh?
