Hello. I have not posted for nearly three weeks. I had hip surgery, and that plus the never ending tummy issues put a kibbosh on the blogging for a while.
Recuperating from surgery is painful, tiresome, slow, and boring. For the first week after the surgery I basically lay around in bed, only getting up to use the bathroom. I did try to go outside a few days after the operation, and that was a big mistake. I felt dizzy and tired and a little...sad, for lack of a better word. During week two I was able to start doing small errands, and suddenly a trip to Walgreens was super, duper exciting.
I got to miss school for two weeks, and while it was hard to plan for it and I was, at first, very nervous about how things were going in the classroom, it ended up being great for my recovery. I stopped thinking about those little challenging people and just enjoyed my gourmet meals of cream of wheat, my Percocet, and my long, long naps.
I did have to do 22 report cards, though. That was a bit of a challenge.
I also managed to shop online. Surprising no one, yep, I shopped while lying in bed, even while unable to get up to pee by myself. Here are some of the things I got:
So I didn't go crazy, but really, it was very enjoyable and, dare I say, therapeutic, to receive boxes of goodies while lying around.
