More good news at the Horne house today. A couple weeks ago I went in and had a few moles checked. They said they'd call if they found anything wrong, otherwise everything was fine. Well, they called. One of the moles they biopsied was "changing." I went in today and they checked it out a little more. Its not a normal mole, but its not a melanoma either. It falls somewhere in between. The doctor removed it and some of the margin around it to make sure it never had the chance to become cancer. I got three stitches, and I'll have a small scar, but I am totally ok with that. Since I grew up playing outside ALL the time in the Florida sun, I know skin cancer is something I need to watch for, but I am glad to say everything is ok for now.
In other Horne house news, our yard is finally under control. When we bought our house it was a completely unfinished mess. The weeds were 4 feet tall, and there was broken glass, trash, and rocks everywhere. Our lot was the last one in the neighborhood to be built, and I think our yard was the dumping ground for a long time. We still haven't planted any trees or flowers yet, but we'll get there. At least its not totally embarrassing now.
