So having had my business trip pulled out from under me, I’ve decided to makes some different plans, sounds like vacation time to me. 😉 “Good times, riches, and son of a B****s, I’ve seen more than I can recall.”
First of all, let me apologize. I truly meant to keep this challenge up every week. Unfortunately, surgery, pain meds, and well … sleep have interfered. Bare with me while I catch up Week 3 of 2020 picoftheweek from Maria Antonia my prompt is: Greenery

Six days post op. Activity restrictions abound, no lifting, no housework, no job work, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera (insert awesome Yul Brynner voice). You might think this would make for an excellent opportunity to catch up on some television shows. Yeah, not so much. You see, we don’t watch “television” never hooked the cable up, no antenna reception, we watch dvd’s or stream old tv series (can you say Star Trek?) Thirty minutes is about my tolerance limit and that’s without commercials. So instead, I’m spending my down time reading, catching up on some crafts and …. sleeping. I haven’t slept this much in years, unless of course it was in front of the television. 😉

That pretty well sums up my day today. Today is filled with “I think I can … I think I can.” I’ve been out of it for a few days. Wednesday last, I went to hospital for surgery. Overnight stay, no big deal right? Yeah, needless to say the words “Major Surgery” went right in one ear and out the other and I figured I’d be back to most of my normal routine by Friday. Nope, not happening. In layman’s terms I had a total hysterectomy and extensive pelvic floor repair. I have somewhere in the vicinity of 100 stitches, mostly internal. I came home and went to sleep and the last 5 days have been, get up walk around for a while, go back to sleep, get up, go back to sleep. ARAGHHHGHH!!! This is more down time than I had when I had my total knee replacements! Anyway just thought I’d stop in, let y’all know I’m still alive, recovering nicely and hoping to be back to normal soon. In the meantime I’m going to go take (another) nap.

“Some days I eat salads and go to the gym. Some days I eat cupcakes and refuse to put on pants. It’s called balance.” ~unknown
“Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astair did but backwards and in high heels.” ~Bob Thaves
Balance is an illusion. Stand on one foot, feel the muscles in your foot and leg shift to keep you upright as your mind wanders or the wind blows. You adjust, you stay balanced. This is life. It’s a thousand tiny adjustments, every day. ~Me to my yoga classContinue reading “3.2.1. Quote Me! – Balance”→
OK so Rory is the host of the “3.2.1. Quote Me!” Challenge and I can’t resist this one. Plus, I’m probably spending a little more time sitting at my ‘puter than usual because I’m “recovering” from eye surgery yesterday. I’m a day late and a dollar short on this but I, literally, spent all afternoon yesterday at the Opthalmologist’s trying to figure out why 24 hours after surgery I can’t see out of my left eye. Anyway the topic was
“Identifying With You”
