Just Keep On Recovering

I think I can I think I can I think I can I think I can I think I can I think I CAN............................................

Today is Saturday and I have taken 3 showers in a row!  

However, after the first two showers I was so tired and sore after the washing extravaganza that I was forced back into the bed.  

But not this morning.  

This morning I not only shaved my legs but I walked down the stairs to have breakfast instead of having breakfast brought to me!

So,  here I sit eating some cream of wheat (so yummy and warm), sipping some poweraid and hoping that by the end of breakfast I will have enough energy left to blow dry my hair. I really want to fix my hair today but with the room currently spinning I don't see that as a possibility. 

Our Realtor said it correctly "I had my appendix taken out a few years ago and Honey, let me tell ya, I would rather go through two natural child births than to have to go through that."  She has two children and no appendix.

Like me!

Two wonderful ladies from Living Faith Baptist Fellowship brought lots of food made by the church members. (Miss Ruthie made homemade chicken noodle soup and let me tell you what, that was some good stuff!!!) They also brought lots of boxes for us to pack up our stuff and sat down to entertain me for a while. Good thing, because I sure did need the entertaining.  I've kinda started to get the "i've been sick for a while when is this going to end" depression.

I also miss my children so bad.

Yesterday evening was the first time I had been down stairs since Sunday.

If I stay in my room  I can pretend that the kids are down stairs playing but as soon as I walk down stairs, past their rooms, I realize they are really gone. They are such a big part of my life that being without them for so ling is kinda hard.

Plus, they both have refused to talk to me on the phone. Paul said quote "I don't want to talk to mom because I am on vacation."

***stab in the heart***

I can't wait until I can cuddle up with my whole little family in the bed and read our favorite little book by Shel Silverstein, The Giving Tree.

Although I complain about missing the kids I must admit that the first couple of days away from them was nice. : 0  

I was able to sit in bed for hours watching Netflix and spacing out. I would have liked to have read but the pain medicine made the words seem to jump around on the page which made it impossible to comprehend what I was reading. I have a book review due Nov 16 and I REALLY need finish the book.

I have knitted as well!!   however, the knitting has been a bit tricky because of the added adventure of the pain medicine.

Speaking of pain medicine....I am slowly coming off of it.  I tried cold turkey and that was REALLY REALLY PAINFUL and just plain stupid on my part.

I have only been taking one every for hours instead of two and today I am going to try one every six hours.

I guess we will see.
