Must. Water.

The grass is going to start hating me if I don't!

The lawn with the new sprinkler system looks lush and lovely (pretty much). The part under the tree that Hector didn't originally seed? Well, I wish he had back when I was being good and watering every single day without fail!

Naturally I knew this would happen. Now we're closer to my deadline and other things are going on (like all the work yesterday) and I don't have the time to spare.


Well, I'm heading out now to water (it's just past 7 a.m. here). An hour from now I should be done!

Then I'll put in a few hours of scripting (!!!) before we head to Victor's funeral. (sigh)

I'm looking forward to seeing Victor's wife Brenda, whom I've always loved. And the rest of the family. It's sad it's under these circumstances.

(Reminder to self. Dig out one of those nice sympathy cards.)

Wow. My facial tic by my right eye just started to go crazy! I guess it's clear that this loss is stressful...

(Or maybe just thinking of seeing everyone again at the funeral. Hard to say.)

Marilyn mistressmarilyn sounded so bad on the phone yesterday because she was in so much pain from the exam.

The growth has grown since last visit. Surgery will take place the end of June. Then she'll need to take off the entire month of July (which is the best thing about this, really).

They talked the ins and outs of this type of surgery and whether or not to try and save the ovaries. (They managed to save one of mine, thankfully.) There are risks with potential cancer if you keep them, of course. (And we've got a friend battling ovarian cancer, so he didn't need to tell Marilyn how horrible it is.)

But taking your ovaries means you go into immediate menopause. I guess they can compensate the estrogen loss easily with a patch, but it's the testosterone loss that matters!

Anyway, he won't know much until he gets inside, seeing as they can't even locate/see the one ovary. (sigh)

Okay, I'm off. More about all that later!

It's supposed to be a sunny day. Good thing! That will help our paint job to draw decently...
