April 26, 2012 was the first anniversary of Frodo’s passing and also would have been Grandma Osenbaugh’s 94th birthday. I still miss both of them a lot. That day was busy for me as I worked 8.75 hours at 3M (for a coworker) and keeping busy took my mind off things for the most part. Then I came home, crashed, and cried a little. I felt better after that. I called my friend Jean and she listened. We talked about her stuff too.
I haven’t written in 3 months, mostly because I’ve been so busy. I got through the colonoscopy OK. I found out I had 2 abnormal polyps, which was good to know, and I had them removed. I have to have another colonoscopy in 5 years. The prep was worse than the procedure but the procedure was pretty painful. I plan to ask for more sedation and pain medication next time.
Today is Beltane. Happy Beltane to one and all. It is an ancient fertility festival (people would pair off and try for children) as well as celebrating the earth’s fertility this time of year. We are having an early spring and I am enjoying every moment of it. Although we had a mild winter, and a beautiful March, I am always happy for spring.
