We had an ice storm last night. Vacation began early for all of the schools in the area. A number of people lost power, but we were fortunate. It flickered some, but we didn't lose it completely. I thought long and hard about keeping my appointment in City for the follow-up mammogram this morning. I finally decided I was going. I didn't want it hanging over my head any longer. I went state routes rather than country roads, which meant it took longer, but I wanted to be on treated roads. I was about 15 minutes late, and was lectured for not cancelling the appointment when they found out I'd drive over 20 miles to get there. I'm glad I went, as after 3 more painful views, they determined that they had been looking at spots of calcification that had lined up in the first mammogram, but with the new views were spread out and not a problem.

Daughter was very relieved. She said she'd been too scared to ask me why I had an appointment. We went to Sam's Club and got her hair cut while we were in town. She bought me a Christmas present at Sam's: Mama Mia on DVD. Ever since we got home she's been telling me she'll let me watch it early, like right now. She would also be very willing to watch it with me. It's been rather amusing. We'll watch it sometime today, but I have some things I need to get done first.

I don't intend to go back out on the roads anytime soon. I don't like ice-- though it is pretty on the trees as long as it's not so much it breaks off major limbs.
