so, remember that time when i told you all about the pain i was having in my back? well, the pain persisted and despite my best efforts-including but not limited to visits to 2 MDs, 2 chiropractors, a massage therapist, a neurologist, an acupuncturist and a physical therapist (right up until my insurance wouldn't pay for any more appointments)-i am now scheduled to have the offending part surgically removed. on friday the thirteenth.
guys, i'm nervous. the idea of having surgery of any sort freaks me out and surgery on my spine really freaks me out. there is some important stuff in there and i would really, really like it all to stay intact. you know, except that bit that shouldn't be there-i.e. the reason for the surgery. even though i know that my surgeon is one of the best, having a major procedure on friday the thirteenth is just a terrible idea. if i see a black cat i'm staying home.
p.s. did i mention that my neighbor has a black cat that likes to sleep on my doorstep? every time i open my front door, there it is, staring at me like a genuine creeper. not cool.

i had the chance to re-establish myself as the world's best aunt recently. i took my niece out to eat and then to the park for some fun and finished the day off with with a little art making. i didn't manage to get any pictures of the art, but we had a genuinely fantastic time!
