It's the middle of a sunny, coolish Friday afternoon. I just got back from taking the pups for a long walk. I may lay down and take a nap. I could use one.
I went back to the dermatologist this morning for a "procedure". They found a cyst between my shoulder blades during my semi-annual visit last week so this week they removed it. I've had cysts removed before, when I was younger (as in - 20 or more years ago), and in the scheme of things - especially compared with other things I've had done - it was pretty easy. But I don't think we realize how much psychic energy these kinds of things take until afterwards - I'm tired.
I think the shot they gave me for the "procedure" is beginning to wear off. I go back to have the stitches removed in two weeks.
It has been a busy week. My sister has been visiting, but went to Virginia for my cousin's 60th birthday. I would have loved to have gone, too, but between this procedure and my scuba classes it's a bad weekend to try to get away.
The scuba classes are going well. Last night we did our first dive in the pool. So far so good. I tried scuba in my young teens but had a pressure problem so I stopped before the end. It's fascinating even in a pool to be sitting at the bottom looking up. Anyway, we're off today, then long days of class/water work the next two days before the certification exam on Sunday. We're headed south for our Open Water certification next week.
I had my hair done this week. I got a pedicure. I've spent some good "me" time. I've had some good time with my sister. I've spent some time with a certain someone. I'm doing things I haven't had time to do for a while. It's good good good.
Of course, it can't last forever. I'll need to be employed again at some point. It's just a fact of life. But for now I'm not worried about it. I'm enjoying today too much. :)
