Still Here

Well, I figured I should at least post something while I'm recuperating.  My healing process has been very good and relatively painless.  I just have a little tenderness now and then but the part I'm really over is not having any energy.  Taking a shower or a trip to the store just really wears me out and I haven't gotten done all the things I had planned to do during this time.  I've never had surgery before so it is probably just the normal course of things.  A new friend of mine, Belinda, had the surgery the same day as me and she didn't plan on doing anything other than rest and recuperation during her time off and she is taking more time off to recuperate.  Probably smart but I just can't do it so I've been dealing with bits of papers and such that needed purging and filing.  Something I can do sitting down.

So, next Monday will be my first day back to work.  Am I ready?  Not really.  If I had more energy I'd be ready but not so much right now.  Part of the problem is I should go back and start working overtime but I just don't have the energy for that.  We shall see if I regret not taking a little more time off.

On another note I did spend Saturday scrapbooking.  It was nice to be out of the house and being a little creative.  Of course I didn't get as much done as I would have liked but the whole point was to go and have fun.  I didn't finish my project so I'll post it later.  Wish I could say I've been creative during this time but that didn't happen either.  Well, that's all for now.

Hey Laurel!

I am glad to hear you are recuperating. Sorry we missed you on Saturday. Stephie had a late lunch with the in-laws and I was having my car worked on. Did you find our note we left you at Archivers? I thought it was very amusing that we happened to sit at the same table, but on different nights. Did you and Rebecca do your usual 'get there when the store opens'?

I hope you don't overdo it on your first day back at work. Talk to you soon.
