…staples out. The only ones that hurt were the 2 that were already pretty red from staples irritation. And even those…was just a tiny bit of pain when removed. Even the ones in the navel…didn’t feel a thing. :: phew ::
….yes, I’ll be watching the Royal Wedding. But not live. That’s why God gave us DVR’s. 🙂 (if it wasn’t at about 3-4 am, I might watch live. But that’s the time here on the west coast and no, not gonna happen.)
….I’m sad this is my last day off work. At first, of course, I was in the muck of post-surgery. Then, I was adjusting to time off more than a few days-week. I actually felt guilty. Not because of the time now, my body clearly needed it, but guilty about what my time will be like when I’m retired, and poor hubby is still working (even though at home) because he’s 16 years younger than me. Then he convinced me that I had damned well EARNED the right. That I didn’t feel I would have to keep myself ‘occupied’…that if I wanted to read, watch some tv, snooze, develop hobbies beyond what I have now, putz on the pc…I had EARNED it. That no apologies were necessary. That retirement was MEANT for relaxing and slowing down. It took me a few days earlier this week to accept that. It was a good trial run on retirement.
…sickened by yet another school shooting. I read a great tweet on the subject this morning: “I was told thoughts and prayers for Santa Fe High School. I prayed and God told me to knock it off and call my legislators and tell them to take action to put an end to gun violence.”
Pretty well sums it up. I’m trying to stay politics-free here now, but some things just scream to be heard.
Going to my oldest grandson’s delayed 21st birthday party tomorrow at an Italian restaurant. I have perused the menu. With luck, and a little help from their kitchen, I’ll be able to get some pasta not covered in oil/butter with some skinless chicken on top of it. Maybe some bread without butter or oil on it. If not, I sit and smile. C’est la vie. Not upsetting the apple cart to go along with the program. Just happy that I’ll be able to attend!
Have a glorious weekend!
