Wow, it is really cold. We are out of firewood because we like the ambiance of having a fire at Christmas. In retrospect we probably should have saved it until it was brutally cold like it is now. Joe has a source for some more wood. Now to just convince him to go out and load it in the cold.
I've discovered a few things about myself while I've been on surgery rest. First, I get bored easily and can become a grumpy patient. I also found that I really enjoy watching movies (let's see, I think I've watched five in the last couple days...maybe more. My DVR is cleared off now) and have somehow become a "techy" over the last few years. One could argue that I've always been somewhat of a techy since I was a systems major in college. However I think some of my techiness is rubbing off on my husband. We spent the weekend setting up our wireless internet. We've had it in the house before but haven't for the last year or so. Joe got a new hard drive for my old laptop so the kids now have a computer they can use. So yesterday was filled with updating that old computer. And we got the girls mp3 players for their birthdays (shhh, don't tell them! they don't read my blog yet!) so I also loaded some music onto them yesterday so they would be ready to go on their birthdays. Sounds entertaining doesn't it?
The last thing I've discovered about rest after surgery is that if you can help it you shouldn't get any type of cold. Sneezing, coughing and blowing your nose with stiches in your stomach is a killer!
My kids come home today! Yeah! Happy Monday everyone!
