It's good to have diversions when you're worried about something - gives you something else to think about. I spent Friday afternoon, after surgery, thinking and sleeping. Too much thinking.

Saturday Glenn and I had dentist appointments. I went first, so, while Glenn was getting his teeth cleaned, I decided to treat myself to a manicure and spa pedicure. It was just glorious and I love looking at my little pink toes! We then went and had a nice lunch and to the supermarket for a few things and didn't get home until late in the day.

Sunday was the spring concert of the Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus and it was simply a wonderful day! I have been a member of the chorus for 4 years and love, love, love singing with them. We sang at Symphony Space in NYC, to a crowd of 600+ and, I'll say it again, it was just a wonderful, albeit exhausting, day! They should add stand, and sing, and hold a binder full of music and emote for 3 hours to Wii-fit because it really is a great workout! I then had dinner with family after the concert and it really was a lovely day!

Yes, there were things that reminded me of my upcoming test results and my infertility, as there always are (I started to bleed again during the concert, someone's sister gave birth on Friday to donor egg twins, the ladies at the nail salon kept asking if I have kids, we sang about children being born and growing up, as well as a famous yiddish lullabye), but, it was just great to be busy and have some diversions from my thoughts.
