We worked on the yard all day again today, spreading grass seed & straw over the new front yard. Rosie (and Colleen) spent a lot of time planting in the awesome new flower boxes in the new retaining wall. We went to the Avon Farmer’s Market early (around 9 am) and bought straw, flowers and vegetable plants. Rosie is excited about buying four different types of lettuce plants. We are envisioning a super-fresh salad every...

Old-Fashioned Chainsaw party!

We have had a couple of people offer to help with cutting up trees, and numerous people offering to help in any way, so we’d like to have folks over tomorrow afternoon, Saturday April 22nd for cutting up the trees, hauling the wood around, cutting off limbs, burning limbs, etc. I would LOVE an excuse to grill for folks and have a pitch-in type dinner. We’ll supply the chops, brats, dogs and burgers — you bring your...

The ghost in my boob.

That dang pain is back, but almost a ghostly echo of its former self. I suppose I need to make an appointment to see my doctor. I can’t walk around grabbing myself in public every time I get a shooting pain! The neighbors will talk. Dad’s party was a blast. He had a lot of fun too. I’m so glad we did it. It was our “life is short, celebrate while you got it” party. It’s a lot better to party with...

I guess it was nothing.

My breast pains are pretty much gone. I can still feel a sensation from what I imagined was the origination point, but I have no way of knowing where they were coming from.

It’s official: Mother Theodore will be named a saint....

Hmmmm…

Well, those pains in my breast are getting lighter, not so bad. However, now I’m feeling like my breast is leaking milk. However, when I check it, nothing is there. I swear I’m losing my mind. I keep touching myself! It really feels like milk is coming out — exactly like when I was breastfeeding and I would go to long past “feeding” time. Milk would start oozing out (then pouring). This feels like the oozing...

What the …?

Today, after all of us went to the gym, I was sitting in a chair in the living room when a lightning bolt of pain suddenly hit the center of my breast! I grabbed it, had to lean forward a bit and yelled “OW!” It was bizarre. I had several more of these sharp pains over the course of a few minutes, each less painful than the last. My first thought was that I pulled something under my arm while working out. As the day went...
