Here’s a vid of my lil’ pony. Notice I’m wearing my hair UP - which I have missed, so, so much. So many straggly little locks to tame, with thousands of bobby pins, but still - it’s up!
The last month or so I’ve been writing a lot and loving my Grub Street class, as it’s gotten me excited again. I’m working on a sequel to the Hollow; it will be told from cracked out little Lauren’s point of view - basically a story of how in hell’s bells she became such a goddamn creep. Anyone who’s read the first one will be surprised that you may come to like her.
On the sweater puppy front I did have my 6-month checkup at Dana-Farber which involved one harrowing hour of uncertainty due to a hardened lump under my scar. I surprisingly hadn’t been paranoid about it at all, and mentioned it casually, but it was enough for my NP to send me right down to get a mammogram and ultrasound STAT. The urgency of that, coupled with a lady in the waiting room who got bad news (cue her running to the bathroom and crying), made the hour or so wait pretty nerve-wracking. But in the end it was what I suspected it to be: scar tissue, and I’m so thankful for DF to be so thorough (and got my first 3D mammogram! Painful but worth the peace of mind).
Um, that’s all, for now…my days have been flying by—I need to reflect more, maybe?
