oh, wow. I just spent the last hour resizing and saving the pictures for my next Scotland post. Then I checked my last post, and realized that I'd skipped over a couple of days! arg! What was I thinking? I've had enough feedback - thank you! See me smile! - that I don't want to skimp on trip pics, but I also don't want to spend another hour resizing pics right now.
Instead, I'll tell you what I've been up to.
On Sept. 10, four days after we returned from Scotland, I had my thyroid out. It wasn't a mandatory procedure, it was elective, but according to the surgeon, it was "going to have to come out eventually." We've been watching it for a year, and I decided "Let's do this!" I wanted it done after Scotland and before Houston. That's right! I'm headed to Houston next month! woohoo!
The thyroid came out, best surgery experience ever. I feel better than I've felt in years. I haven't felt this good since I was 40! I'm still having some surgery-induced calcium issues, but if taking megadoses of calcium is all it takes to keep me feeling this good, bring it on! :)
I made a single birthday card, for my oldest son, for his birthday on Sept. 14. He manages our walnut ranch, so I made something I thought he would appreciate: fallen leaves, and money in the form of a walnut. :)
