Hello, Pixies. I hope that everyone had a peaceful weekend. We successfully simplified our Mother's Day this year, by opting out of everything all weekend (except church). Mr. Q tilled our vegetable garden patch, and I got about 1/3 of it planted. Yesterday afternoon, Mr. Q and E played video games, so that I could soak in the tub for a little while without a small creature banging on the door. I watched a British mystery show. We had takeout for lunch, after church. (It turns out that fast food places are really quiet, on the day when everyone is trying to go for brunch.) After a weekend without any obligations to anyone else, I feel relaxed like I just came back from a spa weekend.
And it's a good thing I feel this relaxed, because this afternoon, I have another internal ultrasound appointment. (Whiiiiiiine.) Cross all appendages that the result of this appointment is "everything's getting better on its own!" and not "We need to book you for surgery, because it's worse."
So: ups and downs today. I'm drinking my tea and staring out the window, trying to hold on to that last bit of peace from the weekend, and am trying not to fret about the afternoon.
