I came to work this morning feeling cheated, like I didn't actually get a weekend. BOOOO!!
For Christmas Peaches and I gave his brother and sister-in-law a gift certificate to a Chico Hot Springs Resort (this amazing little hotel with a HUGE naturally heated pool and an amazing restaurant), along with a 'coupon' for a weekend of babysitting. They cashed in this past weekend, so we had Niece 1 (10 yrs) and Niece 2 (4 years). Friday night we took them for pizza, Sat night we bar-b-qued and rented a movie and yesterday the girls and I had a 'girl' date and went to lunch and to see Mirror Mirror. I love to be Auntie Morgan for the weekend, but holy cracker jack kids are a TON of work. I really admire all you moms out there.
We also got all of our landscaping done in the yard, whew!! I thought the rototiller I rented was going to be one of those cute little things that you just walked behind....WRONG-O!!! It was a huge beast of a thing that nearly shook the poo out of me if I tried to use it. Peaches did the tilling while I used the power rake and mowed. Then we both shoveled dirt, sand and gravel. Now I am pretty sure I pinched a nerve or something, my left side is weak and tingly.
On the band front, I go for my two week visit with my weight management doctor and nurse today. M, my nurse/guru, will be going over the Pureed Stage with me and I will start on that tonight!! I can't wait, it makes my heart happy to think about getting closer to solid foods. I am kind of nervous though, the batteries in our scale are dead and they are these weird 3v disc batteries and it seems like every time I am at a store I forget them, even when they are on the list....maybe it's a sub conscience thing. Anyway I have not weighed myself since last Tue!! I am thinking of asking if I could get naked to weigh at the Dr office today.
Something else that has my crazy what-iffer brain going off is my port. It is still pretty sore and it seems like it is 'taller' now. Like it is sticking out more. I start going over stuff in my head, like lifting a laundry basket three days after surgery...did my port flip?? I can what-if anything for hours and hours. My surgeon did tell me that she sews the port onto a piece of surgical mesh (the kind used to repair hernias) then sews they whole thing to the abdominal wall, she has found that this prevents flipped ports, so I feel a little better. But I can't quite shut my brain down!!!
So with my busy weekend I did not read a single blog, but I am using my quiet morning at work to get all caught up on what's been shaking in your worlds!
