i was feeling better than i had in a long time. craig and i went to his sister
-in-law's house to babysit
. we wore them out early. they went to bed without protest
. after they were asleep
, i promptly konked out. i had to be up pretty early
i tested for my purple belt
and passed with flying colours. i am glad. it was my last time at the studio before i go in for surgery
. i don't know how long i'll have to take off from practice
, but i am glad to have gotten the next belt beforehand.
later that afternoon
, craig and i invited my sister
over for dinner
. they didn't stay long, jenn wasn't feeling too well, but it was nice
to see them.
slept until 2pm. WOW!
that felt good. went for a wonderful
dinner at The Palm. Craig had a big big prime rib
, i had some chicken
, and we ordered the asparagus
as a side. A bottle of merlot
topped the meal off nicely. then we went back to my house were vegetables
for a while. went to sleep around 1am.
wake up, get dressed, walk the dog
craig goodbye (such an angel
when he's sleep
ing), and head to work
. here i am.
my mother arrives sometime late this evening
. she's going to be helping me out while i'm down and out after the surgery
. i'm so glad she's coming down. i love
feeling kinda (okay, REALLY) poop
y, so i leave work early. if it was just pain
i'd stay at work, but i don't want to stray too far from my toilet
today, if'n you know what i mean. when i got home i was pleased to see that craig
is still here.
since ma is coming tonight
, i decided to clean a bit.
now there's a nice loud thunderstorm
outside (that i hope
isn't slowing mom
's drive here), and i'm smoking a bowl
. i'm trying to hold off on pain killer
usage this afternoon
. it's leaving me wonky and mom
is coming over.
