Stuck at home, not able to do much makes it hard to blog about non-personal things…so I’m sharing a personal, ugly picture.
Ok, I hate pictures of myself. Hate hate hate. So hard to find one I like.
So here is the ugliest I hopefully will ever look. But hey! I’ve got a thumbs up going on, so I must have been in a good mood
But yea, I don’t remember this picture being taken 🙂 This is me, still on the respirator, probably the day AFTER my surgery I think…when I had actually woken up.
Yikes it’s scary. Apparently I demanded my glasses because I am blind without them. I also asked to wash my hair (I have the paper on which I attempted to scribble this as proof). Not sure how I expected to wash my hair in this state – LOL!
This week I am doing much better after a slight relapse last week. Today, I went to the mall with my mom for THREE hours. It’s the most I’ve left my house for yet. I bought some cotton shorts (haha) because they are über-comfy and I don’t feel like anything uncomfortable these days, and an apron. Don’t ask about the apron. The hubby met us for lunch and I looked almost normal.
Then I came home, utterly exhausted and zonked out. Not quite normal yet.
I called work today to check in with folks. My vacation/sick/personal time was due to be used up at the end of June and then I would be on FMLA but not getting paid 😦 But I found out from HR that people have donated enough leave for me to get paid through July 17th. Holy cow. I am so grateful and thankful! I feel like I barely know anyone there but people actually donated their vacation time to me! This is enough to get me one extra paycheck I would not otherwise get. And I can’t even know who they are because it’s against the rules. I have to figure out how to get a thank you out somehow.
Speaking of thank yous…I must get others out (now that I’m feeling a little better) for the flowers and other things I have gotten. Unfortunately I did not think to take pics of all of them, but here are some of the things people have sent me. Darn it, why didn’t I remember to take pics of everything? My brain is seriously fried right now.
In garden-y news…we have cubanelle peppers growing. Cubanelles are my favorite pepper -I love them in fajitas!
As you can tell, these are all being grown on our deck. Still haven’t been able to get out to the garden 😦
