The Recovery

Am I better, yet?! This has been the longest week of my life! Pair that with Ella not being very good today and my poor husband who has been caring for me and the kids and trying to work and a son who wants dads attention and you've got our Saturday. Don't get me wrong, LOVING the weather today, but I can't get out into it and so it has me depressed. I'd rather it be snowing so the kids can be stuck inside with me and we could play games and watch movies all day. Jon just left to take the kids to the park with the warning that he may be coming back minus my daughter. Yep. It's that bad.

I have this headache that I think has something to do with the fact that I've done nothing all week. I'm really not handling this well at all, am I?

Okay, so I went to the doctor yesterday and he took my drains and packing out. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. A little uncomfortable, but no pain. All in all, not bad. When it was over and I was riding home I was so amazed at how well I could breathe! That didn't last long, though. By evening I was so stuffed up that my ears were popping from the pressure of swallowing. Today has been a little better. My nose is still very sore. Jon went out to get me more pain medicine (don't worry - I'm weaning myself) and got me a Neti Pot as well. That thing is cool!

One of the things I've been doing this week has been re-organizing and updating my recipes. I'd love to use this blog to share more of my recipes. I know I don't have a ton of readers, but the one's I do have have always given me positive feedback on the one's I've posted. So, look for more things like that to come! Another thing I've been working on is my monthly menu. I've been off the bandwagon (so to speak) lately with dinners and need to hop back on. I'm hoping my going through my recipes will spur some interest in me to do that. I love gaining new meal ideas and recipes and so I want to encourage you guys (you know, my handful of readers!) to comment and leave some of yours as well. That's the beauty of blogging!

Getting woozy from the meds. Look for good recipes coming soon!

Sorry to hear your week as been so rough. Praying that this week goes a lot better and that you feel a lot better from your surgery recovery too!
