I'm waiting to hear from the doctor's office about scheduling surgery. For the first time in weeks, I'm not on edge or worried, just waiting. That is a very nice thing, for sure. I'm not looking forward to the surgery, but I'm not dreading it, and I will be glad to get this done and put it behind me.
Since Friday, when I got all the facts about my situation and made a decision about how to proceed, a big weight was lifted from my shoulders. I have slept like a rock every night since then! Wow, it is so good to be feeling in control again! The unknown was eating me up.
I have had much warmer weather over the weekend, and it has melted about half of the remaining snow. It was 50° yesterday. I think about a third of the ground is now visible. It is good to know it is soaking into the soil, replenishing the much needed moisture. I hope we get enough to keep the forest fires pushed away for the summer. Of course, now this means we will be dealling with a lot of mud for a while, a prospect I'm not crazy about. These pups will track in so much mud! I am going to be cleaning the tile in the next couple days, and I know it will be something that I'll have to repeat frequently. gah.
Other than that, this warm weather is so welcome! It has been a long cold streak, a long snowy streak, and I'm glad it is ended. mid to upper 40s for the next 10 days looks wonderful, even with a couple days that include some possible snow showers. It won't stick around with temps that high.
So this week is off to a good start. Not that exciting for a post, but I'm glad to see it. It's all good. :)
