Overdoing it

Over the weekend, I think I overdid it a bit.

By the end of last week, I was really bored and just wanted to get out of the house. Plus, my friends had a really fun day planned for Saturday, involving a visit to a bridal shop in Fairfield so I could see my friend try on her wedding dress and a visit to Middletown, to see another friend's new house.

Well, we added lunch and bridesmaid's dress shopping. Then we had an evening of pizza, Wii karaoke and board games. On Sunday, the weather was beautiful, so I drove up to Canaan to see another friend. There, I bought some yummies that I later made into dinner and dessert.

By Monday, I was exhausted. I really wanted to see the new Harry Potter movie. A friend and I had scheduled a date for Tuesday, but she asked if I didn't want to see it a day early. Of course I would! So I dragged Albie along to the mall in Milford. But before that, we stopped by his parents' house to see a captured kitten and then went out for sushi.

Needless to say... it was a loooong three days. And I paid for it. By Tuesday, I could barely get out of bed. I stayed in my PJs all day, didn't take a shower, and split my time between Facebook farming and HGTV.

Today was a bit better, although I didn't get out of my PJs until about 5 p.m., when Albie's mom came to take me out to dinner. Now I'm pondering if I'm really ready to go back to work on Tuesday... I think not.

Oh, poor thing... but I guess you had to overdo it to understand what you can manage (but did you have to overdo it that much?).

There is a moment in getting well after surgery when you are soooo bored while not having the strenght to enjoy yourself (even if you didn't realise that in time). In my experience next step is feeling fine.

I am waiting for that next step... although most of the times I am "feeling fine," and then I got to get up from the coach and realize how difficult it is to get to a standing position!

I am up to 1.7 mph on the gym treadmill though and did 13 minutes on Thursday. Might go back for a little while tomorrow, if it isn't too crowded.

Well, that's the consequence of having a "bikini cut", a horisontal scar instead of a vertical. The latter is much more comfortable but you will have to stick for a one piece swimsuit for the rest of your life. And why not? They are also much more comfortable!

I don't have a problem with one-piece swim suits, but I didn't have a choice about the cut. And I've also heard that the vertical scars can be much worse because they actually cut through MANY of your muscles that will never fully heal again.
