Tonight was the high school band’s banquet and dance. Of even more importance – tonight was the night Taylor met his girlfriend’s father for the first time. He’s met her mother and step-father, but never her father. We were supposed to drop him off at the school where he’d meet up with her, but she called him and said she and her dad would pick him up and bring him home. He nearly freaked! Dad turned out to be very nice, though, and Taylor seemed to be on his very best behavior. I hardly recognized him!
Todd has been hanging out in the basement all evening because it’s nice and cool down there, so Katie and I watched Pirates of the Caribbean. Sometime tomorrow or Sunday we’ll watch the second movie before going to see the third in the theater Monday.
We were supposed to host this month’s wine club tonight, but one of the neighbors took pity on me at the beginning of the week and offered to host this month. What a relief that was. Last weekend I was wondering how in the world I was going to manage with everything that was going on, but Kris came to my rescue. She’s going to get an extra special something floral tomorrow night!
As for all my stuff, I’m much better than I was last weekend. I still have a long way to go, but I’m not half as miserable as I had been. I was scheduled for a D&C and endometrial ablation this next Thursday, but I’ve cancelled that until my skin is cleared up. I’m just afraid it’s too weak right now and I don’t think it could handle another trauma of any type.
My dermatologist has gotten me in with the specialist a little earlier. Now the appointment is in July instead of August. But I am on the cancellation list so I may get in earlier. He’s also trying to get me into a Grand Rounds program near Allentown. That’s where a panel of about twenty doctors examine you and go over your complete history and brain storm until they figure out what exactly is wrong with you. Being the dermatological freak that I am, I’m a great candidate.
I’ve been having a horrible time focusing on anything. I’ve started three different books in the last week and never managed more than a chapter or two. I think I may have found the right read, though. I picked up His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman yesterday and have started the first book. His Dark Materials is a Young Adult trilogy which starts with The Golden Compass. The Golden Compass is being made into a movie staring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.
And that’s my weekend in a nutshell. I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Weekend and please remember our soldiers, past and present.
