#Microblog Mondays: Time Flies

How can it almost be Thanksgiving? It seems unbelievable to me that the holiday season has snuck up on me and I haven't even bought a turkey yet for the family meal we're hosting. I like to do my Christmas shopping BEFORE Thanksgiving, and that's out, just seems like everything is just speeding up and speeding by.

I am looking forward to our Christmas in Vermont and starting to put together a stack of books (mentally not physically, as there's stacks of books everywhere) to take there.

I am hoping that I can have my hysteroscopy scheduled in early December (wishful thinking?) so that I am all set and done with this nonsense in time for a romantic, hopefully snowy, fireplace-filled respite for the holidays. It turns out my endometrial biopsies were negative for polyps, but there's something at that top end of my uterus that could be a small polyp, or a small fibroid, or the very odd "possible buildup of endometrial tissue" -- so off to the specialist I go to get eyeballs on my broken womb.

I so want this vacation to be a capper on another year that's come and gone (so far) without a change in our family status, not one that's depressing and reminds us that everything stays the same but one that is rejuvenating and restorative, and leaves us refreshed to face another year where things have the potential to change at any time, but also to stay the same. I vote for the former.

  1. I can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week. It's snuck up on us and it's been difficult to think there will be much to be thankful for. I was once told that leap years are years filled with promise of turmoil, so maybe we just got a weird batch of it. Regardless, im wishing you guys peaceful minds as you plan for your upcoming Christmas holiday.

  2. Hi from #MicroblogMondays! I'm not prepared for Thanksgiving, and I'm ready to decorate for Christmas :)

    I hope that you're able to schedule your hysteroscopy for early next month. I would prefer to get that out of the way before going on vacation too.

  3. I hope you're able to close out December with the surgery behind you and answers that are easy to resolve.

    And yest, I vote for the former for you, too.

  4. Hoping you get that relaxation in and return to it feeling recharged for the new year.

  5. Ah, a vacation sounds lovely, you're so lucky. Enjoy and I hope you get good news on your uterus!

  6. That sounds like a lovely plan for Christmas. Fingers crossed you get your gyno exam (and the results) out of the way early!

  7. Unreal that it's the end of another year, and I haven't done much with it, again. I'm trying not to dwell on what I haven't achieved, but it's still hard to dredge up anything concrete that I have actually achieved. Maybe just getting through it in one piece is the best thing. Good luck getting your hysteroscopy scheduled..I'm sure your trip at the end of the year will indeed be rejuvenating and restorative - SUCH a good idea to go away like that to cap it off.

  8. I'm coming up on the one year anniversary of my hysterectomy (November 30th), so please feel free to shout out with any questions. I'd be happy to help/support in any way I can. Fingers crossed the end of this year brings about the beginning of beautiful things for you.
