Can we just talk about my colonoscopy?

I cannot believe you even opened this.  Why would you want to read about that?  It happened. The end.

In other news, life is slowly returning to some semblance of normal. Last week I had the above mentioned date with a man and his colonoscope, which took up more of my week than it should have.  That was my first week post treatment and it just seemed like business as usual. This weekend we went out for dinner and a movie and had a great time with family and friends enjoying a lobster bake and being treated to an air show.  I realized at some point over the last couple of days that next week I can actually make plans, do as I please, be spontaneous (hey! it could happen) or do nothing at all. I was asked to accompany my mother to the coast for a business appointment and I quickly did a mental inventory of what my week looked like and it was like this  [                                          ]  a blank canvas. No appointments. No one drawing blood, inspecting skin, zapping me, poking me, asking all sorts of intimate questions that are, quite frankly, none of their business.  I’m not sure what to do with all of this new found freedom. There is a lot I should do, but once I fill that time up with busy work it’s no longer a lovely white space to do as I please in.  I want to turn calendar pages that are clean and white with no appointments penciled in. Just rows of empty uniform little squares to fill however I like.  I could get used to this.

oh! and my Bucket List is coming along nicely.  With the help of Thing 1 and his lovely wife I will be a grandmother around tax day!   I guess the rest of the list is up to me. Unless someone wants to get a tattoo for me?  No?   sigh
