Declaring 2005 a Non-Starter for Wagering Purposes...

Well, really, can you blame us?

We have decided to start 2005 again some time around March 1, which of course, isn't all that weird, in many calendars. Let's face it, those kids born of virgins in the deep midwinter were actually more than likely birthed in the milder spring months. Makes sense, and Mom has never been anybody's fool.

I had thought about declaring it started as of February 1, but I'm still on the damn steroids, which I hate, and Melissa is just starting her recovery from her hysterectomy (more on that anon), and so, let's just get this out of the way. Come March 1, though, we expect to be partying in the streets!

The hysterectomy went well. The doctor found severe endometriosis. Melissa being the science fiction writer that she is, she asked the doctor to photograph whatever she removed, which she very kindly did. It's pretty impressive. The good thing, I guess, about the endometriosis, is that she should end up feeling even better than she was expecting to, as a result. Dumb innards.

Today was the first day this week that didn't involve being at the hospital. In fact, it was one of the few days of the past two weeks that did not involve being at A hospital, either up at Dartmouth or here in town. Wow, no wonder I feel like I'm relaxing a little bit, finally.

Now, where's that Maker's Mark...
