I wouldn't call it the worst day ever by any means. I stayed in bed sleeping until 11:30 a.m., then I got up and went out and sat in my recliner. My wonderful husband brought me my warmed up breakfast and I ate it. Before I knew it, he was handing me my lunch and I ate that too. I sat there in that recliner until about 3:30 when I came out to the kitchen and planned some baking for the next couple of days and made a list of a few things that I need at the grocery store.
After we made supper and ate that, I spent a little time down in the vault wrapping a few presents. Kids took showers and Stacey did some wrapping before I met the boys back in their bedroom for night time stories. They got into bed and I was back in the recliner.
I do have to say that Zachary and I read three chapters of Charlotte's Web from that chair and Matthew and I snuggled while we watched some Clifford so that was no time totally wasted. I am looking forward to spending some time in my kitchen baking tomorrow and Monday.
I am a week out of surgery and this recovery has been a little different. The majority of the work was done on the top which means every time I move my arms I get pain across my chest. It isn't that bad but after doing one or two small chores I feel like I need to sit down and let everything rest a bit. I hate that! I know I am feeling sorry for myself and I need to be thankful and I really am. I am thankful that it is break and that all of my loved ones are here in this wonderful new house to spend time working and playing together.
I just want this recovery to be over, I am not very patient or a very good patient!
