Yes, I am aware it is after noon on a Friday.
I am also aware that it is not imperative to post a blog entry every Friday or have it post by 2AM for that matter.
However, I thought it might be fun to join in with a few others for
since that seems so applicable to my life right now.
1. Week 3 plus 2 days after foot surgery puts me one day closer to having the eyeball pin removed from second toe on right foot and hopefully not having to use the walker. I'm still having some discomfort from the other incisions and bones healing, but mostly late evening and night. What is it about night time and pain. Crazy!
2. For the 4th day in a row, I have actually put on clothes clothes. Since I had been moving from bed to walking around a bit, to the recliner, to walking around a bit, to the bed and repeating this over and over all day long, I have found loose fitting and comfy warm casual wear to be the order of the day. Plus, I have not seen any reason to apply makeup. Hubby hasn't minded. Or so he says.
However, a friend called to say she was coming over on Tuesday, so I felt compelled to at least put on something that didn't resemble pj's and actually put on a little makeup. She called that afternoon to say she wasn't able to make it but would come the next morning. In the meantime, another friend text'd to say she was coming over the next afternoon.
So, I was up and at it early to be ready and yes to go through the time consuming process of getting ready. Sure enough she showed up and we had a great visit. Incidentally, she did not seem to notice the makeup or my clothes clothes.
The second visit of the day didn't happen so we rescheduled for today. Again, I'm up early awaiting Hubby's return from the gym so I can get showered and dressed to be presentable for the day.
Let me just say here that Hubby has been such a trooper during this whole ordeal. Don't know what I'd do without him and don't want to find out.
Now, back to story. I'm dressed again with a very minimum of makeup but red lipstick to match my bright red top and ready for the visit. A few minutes ago she text'd to say she can't make it, but how about Monday. Do you know what that means?
Of course you do. Dressed in clothes clothes and makeup another day and here all by myself. Seriously, I'm grateful for special friends who want to come over and spend time with me regardless of what I have on or what I look like. They are a blessing and I really won't mind making myself presentable again on Monday.
3. I am also grateful for a pair of the most comfortable, soft, wide legged pants I have ever worn. They are from Soft Surroundings and I only wish I had ordered 15 pairs. They are my uniform these days.
4. I am loving these early days of Fall and have the sunroom windows open to prove it. So what if more dust filters thru the screens to add to the existing layers. It will all be there when I can safely pass a swifter or dust cloth over the surfaces. In the meantime, I will enjoy time spent enjoying the refreshing fall cool temps.
