Do you ever just feel like nobody in the world really has a clue what they are they doing? That they are just making it up as they go?
Letters of Note, Best of 2012 Several of my favorites from last year made this list.
Orangette’s Chocolate Cookies These were my favorite cookies to make last year. Although Judah made some fabulous cookies for Christmas that I want to try to make. I need to get the recipe.
A Month of Letters I’m going to do my best to participate in this.Jan 26, 06:57 PM
Chris and I are going to participate in this class and so should you. The first class requires that you have a box of 24 crayons and four different kinds of paper to print coloring sheets on. (That sounds grammatically awful but I’m not changing it.) it sounds like a really fun class and we’ll learn about our minds as well.Jan 26, 10:26 AM
I had my gallbladder out yesterday. It only took twenty minutes for the actual surgery. Chris was weirded out when the surgeon came out so early to talk to him.
I had to be at the hospital and checked in with the surgery desk at 5:45. I was there on time but the admissions lady wouldn’t let me go to the surgery floor. She said that I had some papers to sign. I tried to explain to her that I had already signed everything and paid. I had an appointment the week before specifically to do all of that. Her response to me was, “Obviously there is something else for you to sign. Now take a seat and someone will be with you soon.” I was livid but I “took a seat.” When she finally called me up around 6:00 she had a lot of papers for me to sign. They were exactly the same as the ones I had already signed. I told her again that I had already signed all of them and paid. Chris gave her the receipt from last Friday. She said, “oh, well it’s not in the computer. I wonder why… blah, blah, blah.” She gave me a half assed apology and sent me on to surgery. Thankfully they were ok with my tardiness and everything was still on time. I was home by 1:00. I slept a lot. I’ll probably sleep a lot today too. It feels like I’ve done one million sit ups or a horse kicked me in the stomach or something. I am very, very sore.
I am going to be out of work for the next week. I’d like to think of it as a vacation but I’m pretty sure it will just feel like recovery time. I can’t lift anything over 10 pounds for the next month and am moving very slowly and hunched. I keep telling myself to stand up straight but I’m not listening.
The surgeon told me that he was going to make four holes to do the surgery but then told Chris that he only had to make three and that all of my anatomy was regular. No rogue organs floating around in the wrong spot. When I got home I wanted to look at the holes. (I don’t have dressings. The surgeon super glued everything closed.) I looked and looked but could only find two holes. Several hours later, once some of the swelling went down, Chris found the third hole. It’s in my belly button. That totally freaks me out. Ah!
I’m a bit orange from whatever medicine they rubbed on me but I can’t take a shower until this afternoon because the super glue can’t get wet for 24 hours.
The pets are mad at me because I won’t let them sit in my lap.
I have to watch what I eat and limit fats as much as possible unless I want to run to the restroom every 2 minutes, or so I’ve been told. I’ve been very careful up front so so far so good. I’m nervous about it though.
I think I’ll knit for a little while and then take another nap. I’m like a cat. Nap, nap, nap.Jan 11, 07:13 PM
I just watched Meet the Robinsons and this part was so funny. I rewound it several times. Watch a few times. It’s only 28 seconds long.
