Play Date Saturday

Spent the day with the kiddo. We watched Twilight of all things. He confessed he thought it was the best movie out of the series. Then he wondered if he felt that way because it was the only book in the series he’d read? Not sure. But hey it isn’t every day that he’ll sit on the couch holding the dog and watching a movie and I didn’t even ask him to.

In other news…I slept in and had a lazy day, resting up for the upcoming week.


What are you Reading Thursday?

DownUnderWiththeHottieLast week I had the opportunity to read Juli Alexander’s newsest book in the Hottie Series Down Under with the Hottie. I enjoyed that story from the first word until the last. Her characters are fresh, funny, engaging, and I feel like I know them. Sure this is a young adult spy series, but what does age matter? It’s the story. The advernture that really counts. I’d recommend this book, this series to anyone.

Random Thoughts Tuesday

I’d like to wish my mom a HAPPY 70th Birthday!!!!!  She wanted it to snow and she got her wish. A pretty sight to behold with the wet snow clinging to the trees. Nothing on the roads where I live and I am thankful that school was delayed two hours so those in harder hit areas would not be in danger on the roads.

Brought a pillow with me to work today. I am going to see if that helps with my backache and maybe I can last all day. I really need to.

Remembering those in the North US hit by all the snow, suffering from cold temps and power outages. And those stranded at airports because their flights were cancelled.


Monday Musings

I returned to work today. For the first day back after being gone for six weeks it wasn’t bad. I didn’t make it the full day, but I did work until almost 2:30. I might have made it longer, but my back began to bother me from sitting at my desk and taking Motrin did not help. Plus I developed a headache, probably from being under the fluorescent lighting for such a long period of time– a big change from being at home.

I went home and took a nap which helped then I picked up my son. Even with it beginning to snow I have to say it wasn’t a bad day at all.


Sunday Sundae

Yep I have skipped a whole week without blogging and I am not going to go back and post one for each day. So don’t think you’ve missed anything.

Even though I am still out of work, last week was not a good one. I had my first migraine after my surgery and it lasted in different stages for most of the week. I did see my doctor on Friday and he released me to return to work tomorrow. He also prescribed me a patch to wear to release small doses of hormones to help with the migraines and give me energy (since I want to sleep until noon most days). And I can’t do that if I am going back to work.

The patch has been okay. I did sleep until almost one on Saturday, but I felt good afterwards. I even went to bed early last night so I could get up and go to church today. However, that didn’t happen. As soon as I got up I realised I had a migraine so I took my Excedrin and went back to bed. I am having mild hot flashes and my head isn’t that clear now, but it is much improved over the way I was before I had my surgery.

Anyway, it is a beautiful day outside. Windy. But otherwise lovely. I’m sitting at my desk writing this blog with my heater on and I’m trying to psyche myself up to return to work tomorrow after being off for six weeks. I know there will be so much to do, but I also know I can’t do it all in one day, not even one week, but it will get done. As my doctor said, I should pace myself and not push myself into doing more than I can.

I just pray I can do it.
