All about Minimizing

I need another weekend!!

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!

  1. Maybe your port seems to be sticking out more because your swelling is down? Or due to the weight you've already lost or a combination of the two. Hope your appt goes well :)
