More chipper today. I wasn't prepared to hear about a surgery yesterday, but PMS has a way of reminding one that there's an upside. I think it's the initial shock, like being popped over the nose with a rolled up newspaper. Spokane has excellent doctors, so I'm in good hands.

Feeling slightly glum. Doc says I need a partial hysterectomy. They'll leave the ovaries, remove the uterus and fix the prolapse (s). Have to speak to surgeon next week, but the guy I picked is supposed to be good without using mesh, so that's a plus.

Also, I have 3 teens, so I'm done with babies until grand kids. Intellectually, I'm cool with the procedure; there's no non-surgical option to fix things. Emotionally, it feels too young to have a hysterectomy at if age had anything to do with it.

Blech. I need chocolate.

New covers

Smashwords needed larger covers and I didn't have large versions of the older ones, so I remade a few:

I had energy thanks to this:

HemeMAX - Heme Iron Supplement for Women and Men | 1 Month Supply | Non-Constipating | Safest Form of Iron | Highest Absorption | 1 Pill = 6oz Steak Worth of Heme Iron | Hemin Supplement

Working my way through list of things that got put off. Our youngest just turned 16 and our eldest graduated this year. A couple more years and everyone should be graduated and employed. :)

Lovely sunny day. There's pollen out but it's not bothering me inside so life is good. I haven't written yet, but the fact that I can think about it without a panic attack is progress. Meanwhile, I plan to enjoy my summer.

My brain's been a giant blank since spring. Since I rarely do a lot of writing in the summer, that's not the end of the world, I suppose.

My granny died yesterday at 98.

I talked to my doc about the allergy thing and we're trying a couple of things. He's ex-army, badly allergic and wears a mask with a respirator all spring. My husband (retired air guard) took notes, and he's determined to have me wear one next spring. He rarely insists on anything, but I think he'll get his way and I'll be glad he did.

They were blasting rock behind my house this week for construction on the subdivision, which shook the house and left my dog shaking, too. I jumped a lot, and the kids found it exciting. We have lots of heavy equipment parked outside my back window.

Cooler than usual summer, nothing is on fire and lots of fruit on the trees, so that's good.
