So the other day, I shared some interesting facts about myself in my Sunshine Awards post. I hope you learned something or at least smiled.Sorry that I've been so quiet over here lately. I've only posted a few times in the past while and I thought I would share some of what's been going on in my life.
Back in February I got to feeling really unwell. The pain got really bad one night and I ended up in the emergency room. Long story short the end result was that I had to have some "minor" surgery. As some people say, "Minor surgery is only done on someone else." I realize that for the doctor it wasn't a big deal, but for me it was huge.
Pop Rocks is amazing at taking care of me. When I had to go the ER, I woke him up in the middle of the night and he never once complained. I wasn't even planning on waking him up, but somehow my body did without my brain's consent. He was ready to go right then. I called the nurse line from my insurance (which I love BTW) and after her series of questions the nurse on the line recommended that I get help within the next three hours. Oh, and that I not drive myself. That was more than enough to get me in the car (though I insisted that Mary go out first).
My parents came to town and helped to get me on the road to recovery and I missed a week at work. It was interesting to be home from work for a whole week. Typically if I'm off that long, we are on vacation (like this time last year) or its a major holiday. It was pretty restful, but t.v. gets pretty boring after a few days. There was a local murder trial on all week, so I ended up watching a lot of that coverage. It was really interesting, but so so sad.
Since then, I've been adjusting back to real life (and life post operation) and working on lots of little projects. I should show you some pictures. I only have after pictures, but that should be okay.
Oh, one of my dearest friends came to visit a couple weekends back and spent one night with me before her family got to town. I've also had some really long and wonderful conversations with my other bestie's and its been so great. Those girls make my life so much more beautiful and rich!
