Another week and weekend have flown past. The week flies by. My new job keeps me busy, checking in here and there, going where needed or making connections that will be needed later. One kindergartner I had been spending a lot of time with has been out sick. Last report was that he has pneumonia and has been in intensive care. Poor kid. Coming back to school, whenever that might be, will be hard for him having been out for more than a week.

To tell the tale!! I know no one else thought I wouldn't make it but I have to admit, I did have my doubts. Even after 3 C-sections and 1 appendectomy, I've never been put under before. Sometimes people don't wake up. It can happen. Of course no one ever thinks it will happen to them, but I do! I had surgery on my eye on Thursday to remove a mole that was on my lash line and starting to block my vision. When I was telling people at school that I was going in for this surgery only a few even knew what I was talking about. I've managed to camouflage it well for 10 or so years but without that makeup it was HUGE! I went in Thursday morning at 7:00, got prepped, which amounted to wearing a gown and getting an IV in my hand. I was wheeled into the "operating room", the anesthetist said he was going to start giving me "the medicine" and the next thing I knew they were calling my name in the recovery area. Easy peasy! I've kept ice on it for 3 days, as ordered, tried not to bend at the waist or lift anything, slept on my back propped up, taken extra strength Tylenol and now, 3 days later it's looking ok. Now my next dilema, how in the hell am I going to get through the next week at work with NO MAKEUP?

The leaves in some spots are really changing all around the neighborhood. The sun was hitting this tree just right yesterday morning.
