Remember when I went for my mammogram last week? Yeah, well, I got a call a couple of days later right as we were leaving for Denver that my doctor had reviewed the images and ordered additional views. Sigh. I reluctantly scheduled another mammogram and ultrasound and tried not to think about it too much. Impossible. I wasn't too worried until I realized that the request was for additional images on the right breast--the opposite one with the lump that I had biopsied last year. My appointment was this morning. I'm happy to report that after my tests today, the area of concern turned out to be a simple cyst. BIG HAPPY SIGH OF RELIEF. I'm sad to report that the radiologist, the ultrasound tech, and the mammography tech each told me to expect this kind of scrutiny each year. I guess I need to be thankful that they do a thorough job, even if it does cause me some mental angst.
Today was a rude awakening for all of us after a week of being "off the clock". Everyone got up on time this morning but I'm not sure anyone was cheerful about it, including me. It didn't help that temps were in the 70s/80s all last week and weekend and today is c-c-c-cold, dreary, and windy. I traded my shorts, tank top, and flip flops for jeans, my down vest, UGGs, and my winter coat! How rude of mother nature to jolt us out of our lovely spring pattern. It's soooooo dry here and we need moisture badly, but I sure wish that the weather system heading our way would bring rain instead of the frozen stuff. Wishful thinking I'm afraid.
Our spring break was wonderful. We went to the movies (I really liked Mirror Mirror), shopped, ate out, hiked, had a couple of sleepovers, grilled out several times, visited with friends, and John and I even went on a date one night. I loved having a week to do a whole lot of nothing. Traveling is nice, but it's not as restful as staying home in my book.

This week is back to business with schedules and track meets and homework (loved our break from that) and carpool. Eight more weeks of school until summer break and I am definitely counting down! Spring break gave me a really bad case of summer fever. Hope everyone's week is off to a great start.
