Last week I posted about some things I wanted to get done while the kids were away. I thought I would share some bullet points of where we are at in the process.
* My husband had hernia surgery this past Thursday. It was a long day. We left home at 9:00 am and got home around 7:00 pm. Really, sitting around the hospital for hours should not be tiring, but it is for some odd reason. I got to enjoy a quiet lunch in the Hospital Cafe, which was surprisingly good and so inexpensive - we should just "eat out" there more often HA! I also was able to get a fabulous foo-foo coffee from Starbucks while waiting. I tried hard not to laugh at my husband when I was finally able to see him after surgery but he is quite funny when he is drugged up :-) He did have a fabulous nurse AND it was a very slow day in the post-op so we got to stay longer than normal which was actually a good thing.
* I know I had thought about painting and setting up a new entertainment center but, on Friday, I was exhausted. Since a week ago Thursday I haven't slept well thanks to some unexpected hot and humid days (our room is very stuffy and hot even with a window open!) and then sleeping on the couch one night followed by the day mentioned above . . .I didn't feel like doing much. I did manage a quick trip to the store to get some groceries but otherwise, we hung out at home all day and, yes, I did nothing. It felt good.
* Saturday I considered going to the garden center but . . .I didn't. I even thought about going to town and wandering the mall but ultimately, I was tired. Darryl was still in a lot of pain so really, we just hung out. I watched a lot of HGTV and Food Network while he napped
* Sunday . . well, repeat of the above HA! We did sit out on the back porch in the sun for a bit in the afternoon but otherwise, we were 100% lazy. Darryl was still in quite a bit of pain so we just . . ..enjoyed hanging out together.
Do you see how much I've gotten done? LOL Oh well, Today a little reality comes back with babysitting so I'm going to actually work on some things like scrapbooking and homeschooling. My printer took a lightening his last week so am waiting for my new one to arrive on Tuesday which means . . no printing :-) That really cramps my style .. . .since I am a huge list maker and love to print stuff!
