The weekend came and went and I think I may have overdone it. Saturday started out slow, but then my mom and I went out to run a few errands. I got the opportunity to drive and it went well. We ran to the local amish meat market, grocery store, and one other stop to pick up yarn so I can finish the scarf my mom wants. We then headed back to my parents. I rested for a bit and then we made a few meals so I’d have food for the week. I got a new kitchen toy (Instant Pot- electric pressure cooker) and we made two dishes in it and then a pot of soup all in less than 2 hours. I really like the Instant Pot!!! The rest of the evening was spent in the chair crocheting. I slept in the chair again Saturday night.
Sunday was pretty uneventful. I wanted to get out of the house because it was almost 70 degrees out (in February)…it was also wicked windy! We’ve been watching a lot of HGTV while I’ve been off so we decided to go walk around a local antique mall. About half way through I was really hurting. I told mom we were going to have to leave soon. We picked up our pace a little over the next 4 rows and then hit up this gold mine of old barn wood, doors, and other fun things in the back of the mall. Mom wants to make a cool table out of reclaimed wood and we found some great pieces. She and my dad will go back and get it this week.
We headed home because I was exhausted. Mom made grilled cheese and we ate the gumbo we made the day before. We then packed up my stuff and came back to my house. I am so thankful for my parents (especially my mom) and all they did for me over this last recovery (and the previous two as well). I enjoyed the company and was thankful, but I was ready to be back in my space. I slept on my couch until about 3:30am and then I was back to the chair.
I had to go in to work today for a few errands and I was EXHAUSTED. My stomach hurt and I just didn’t have any energy….I think I overdid it over the weekend….and today too! I don’t have to do anything until Wednesday afternoon…so I’m just laying low in my ice machine until I see my surgeons!!!!!!
