Back….dat azz up?!
“Cuz it feels so empty without me” – Eminem
So I am back after the surgery and I am trying to get back on track of everything. It is chaotic and stressful but the hard part is over and my healing is going quite well! Thank you for the well wishes and thoughts. You have no idea how much they mean to me and help! I got some amazing flowers from my parents to wish me well and a dragon coloring book. I am a happy girl!
Ya know, life is kinda funny when you think about it. Everything seems to fall into a full circle no matter what you do. Between surgery and everything else going on, I sometimes just have to laugh or I may go insane….or cry.
But here I am and while many of you don’t have details, this surgery was needed and welcomed. It is making me a better person and even more beautiful. Ever realize how hard it is to see the good in yourself and how easy it is to see the good in others? It should be easier, but for most people they never truly love who they are. It isn’t hard to understand why. There are a lot of pressures. You didn’t do this…you made a mistake….you need to do better. The pressures in life constantly mount. So I made a decision. I do not want to grow up and I won’t. I will just work on me and brush off the pressures. People will not work to their full potential with stresses as they are and despite saying they work well under pressure, you do a far better job at whatever you are doing if you just do you.
So do that this week. Just do you.
Anyhow….so tomorrow I am going out for a bit. The first time since surgery. Sadly it isn’t with friends for drinks but Bean, Lala, my mom, and I are going to get some clothes and see Beauty and the Beast, then dinner. I am pretty excited about it all in all and excited to be outside. This week has been more insane than I expected. I have had appointments all week, dealing with post-surgery bleeding, 2 sick kids, school starting up again, issues with bullying, a sick relative, smoke detectors, trying to get the house back in order from resting last week…etc. I am so severely overwhelmed, this weekend it is all about me and doing things at my own pace. I plan on sleeping when I can….hopefully not interrupted like it was last week to take meds and change the gauze, watch movies, do some school reading/notes, and just enjoy things. Monday starts a new round of appointments and I will be 100% in about 3 weeks. Just in time to regain everything before I go to Philly!
Forward and Reverse
Popcorn Worthy: Burning Sands on Netflix and What Dreams May Come were a few of the movies I watched while recovering. I also got caught up on Scandal which is an awesome TV Show!!! I adore Kerry Washington in it!
Coffee Chaos: Dunks has a new coffee…..COCONUT CREAM PIE. OMG it is amazing. Get one but do NOT get sugar or you may get diabetes with the sweetness.
Press Play: My music has been silenced since surgery but I need something new. Anyone have any suggestions? Leave them in my comments!
Furioustival 9 Countdown: 9 Weeks…or 63 Days! BTW F9 prices increase on April 15 so PAY NOW!
Kitchen Kauldron: While I have not been cooking prior to tonight, my mom made me a killer chicken and rice soup with a homemade stock. I think I am going to experiment with soup stock soon! Plus I am learning how to make bagels. Homemade ones! I will show you soon hopefully!
School Daze: I just started my 6th term. It is kind of crazy but this term is cognitive psychology…the understanding of the mind in relation to memory, learning, etc. I am loving it so far but Chapter 1 has 9 pages of notes. I R Smrt!
K guys…be good or be good at it! I missed ya!
