Fourth of July
Well, here it is, the Fourth of July. We have no special plans. There are a few other American families living on our street, so maybe someone will set off some fireworks -- but probably not. In all likelihood, our holiday will pass quietly!
I'll be spending the day packing, or at least part of the day, as I take off tomorrow for Florida. I'm also going to try to get my stitches removed from last week's skin surgery. I made an appointment with my doctor's office this afternoon. It's about 36 hours early -- they recommended the stitches stay in for a week -- but I think I can get away with having them out now. I'm not planning on doing anything rough or strenuous anytime soon, and I really don't want to have to deal with it in Florida.
My swelling has diminished, thank goodness. My face is pretty much back to normal. And yesterday was my first day without any pain relievers! Woo hoo!
