Twilight and Missing Moles

How do you like my title?

First off, my mood has gotten better. I still wake in the morning with the shakes, not knowing what the day will bring, but I've gotten better at handling my days in general. I guess I really messed myself up by going to Louisiana this past summer, because I didn't give myself the time to adjust like my friends did, but at the same time, I'm glad that I used up three months exploring my home state and being with family. My adjustment period is now, and I'm getting to be okay with it. It helps to have plans with friends on weekends, since weekends can be a nightmare for me if we have no plans. Shoot...any time I have plans to spend time with other adults is good for me. And yes, I know I still have to get in touch with some new friends so that I can spend time with them (J.B.)....I want to, I really do.

I'm getting there. Just be a bit more patient with me.

I've spent a lot of time in the past week reading the book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I'd heard about it in the past and I tell ya, I can't put the book down for long. I find myself putting off projects and house work during the day (and especially when Sarah naps) to read this darn book. I'm hooked. I also feel like a traitor to Anne Rice, but hey...Ms. Meyer is a good story teller. I normally can't sit down for long to concentrate on a book before my mind starts to wander in all directions, but this is different. I had fun texting my friend, J.K., this morning over what parts I've read so far. J.K.'s read the series and it's fun to get some teasers from her.

I also went to the dermatologist this morning to get some moles removed. I didn't realize how attached I was, to a mole on the left side of my neck, until I got into my car and looked in the mirror. I feel like a part of me, my character, is gone. Damn! I should've just told the P.A. to leave it alone if she didn't see it as a problem. Otherwise, one mole in particular that has been a literal pain under the bra strap is gone. Yeah for that one! And another on my chest, that can clearly be seen when I wear a v-neck shirt...gone too.

I had to drop Sarah off at daycare on post so that I could go to my appointment, and I was nervous about it. I'd never left her with anyone besides friends or family, and I was curious to see how she and I would both handle it. I'm happy to tell you that we both survived, we have another appointment for next week, and she is exhausted and taking a nap right now in her swing. Oh, and I just love the way some ladies at the center called her "Juicy", obviously referring to her chubbiness. Juicy...funny.

One more day almost gone....and how many more to go?
I hope everyone is doing well.

Hello, Ms. JLo! So glad to see a recent post from you...I was getting worried. I'm glad you are doing better. I actually saw you dropping off your son with his teacher. I was going to jump out of the car and say hello, but you were already driving away. :)

Well, I just wanted to say hello. Maybe we can have coffee some time at the new B&N. Let me know, ok? If not, I'll understand. I know how life can be with little ones and hubby is away. :)

Talk to you later!

I read the whole Twilight series in about 2.5 weeks. I loved it. Once I was finished I felt like something was missing in my life, lol. I can't wait till the movie comes out!! Glad to hear your feeling better, this whole deployment thing is for the birds.

Juicy, I like that. Glad to hear everything went alright at the CDC. I'm looking forward to seeing you sans moles tomorrow!

Juicy...I like it. I'm gonna have to look into this book series. I love books that you could just gulp down like a good drink.
