Monday, the beginning of the work week…another Monday off for me during my convalescing…I anticipate going back to my job from Hell next Tuesday. I will discuss this with my surgeon tomorrow (Tuesday) at my follow-up appointment, post-hospital.
I’m tired of daytime TV…though I’ll be watching the last 3 shows of Oprah Winfrey. I am tired of daytime TV but there are times when all I feel like doing is laying in my bed and watching TV or half-way watching, more times dozing…as I’ve said before, I’m not much of a nap taker, especially during the day…rest is an essential element to recovery from a major surgery.
Today is my youngest brother’s birthday. He turned 42 years-old today. My birthday is this Wednesday, I’ll be 53 years old. I remember when my brother was born…I was thrilled to be getting a “baby” for my birthday! I was 9 years old and a new baby was just so exciting.
I got all my errands done yesterday. I was exhausted to say the least but thankful my dear friend agreed to shuttle me to all the destinations I had planned on my agenda.
Today, I will get out on the patio and take the petunias I bought and create a tower of cascading blooms and vines around my antique plant stand. I’m hoping to place it on my front porch to give it a little more color. I may just leave it on my patio and enjoy my creation out there…
More storms are predicted for the area. Tornado season is in full swing…the ferocity of the tornadoes this year is unbelievable. My thoughts and prayers go out to those folks that have suffered from these fierce storms.
Time for another cup of coffee and decide which project to attack before I have to take my first rest. Have a good Monday.
