Daybook 6-13-13

I never intended to make this blog strictly a daybook, but that seems to be the road I'm heading down.  I've been on bed rest for a back injury since Monday and I'm afraid that the meds and boredom have sapped all my creativity.


Outside my window... I hear that it's incredibly sunny, hot, and humid.  I can't actually see out a window from my bed or couch so I have to take their word for it.

I am thinking... That in exactly one month I will be turning 38 years old.  I don't really get too hung up on age, but it's funny because I really don't feel any different emotionally than I did at say 25.  Physically is a different matter altogether.  

I am thankful... For my wonderful husband and children.  They have been so helpful this week by taking care of the pets, cooking, and fetching things for me.  I don't know what I would do without them.

In the kitchen... I'm not sure what's going on in there, but it's not my problem for another day or two.

I am wearing... Tinkerbell pajama bottoms and a pink t shirt.

I am creating... Not a darn thing besides a dent on my couch / in my mattress.

I am going... A little stir crazy.  

I am wondering... How long it's going to take to get back to normal.

I am reading... Ladies' Night by Mary Kay Andrews.  So far it is very good.

I am hoping... To be able to get up and walk somewhere other than the bathroom tomorrow.

I am looking forward to... being able to swim again.

I am learning... to crochet.  Still.  Slowly.  I missed my class this week, I hope I'm not too far behind.

Around the house... I'm trying not to think about it.  It's going to be a few weeks before I can do any lifting or bending and the idea of the laundry, vacuuming, and dishwasher are disheartening.

I am pondering... Father's Day.  I want to help make the day special for my husband but I'm also dreading it a little.  This is the first Father's Day since my dad passed away.

A favorite quote for today... "Sister, they don't know what to do with just one of me."  --Richard B Riddick

One of my favorite things... My local library.  They keep me supplied with a steady stream of books and dvds and I've recently learned how to borrow and download ebooks.  All for free.  

A few plans for the rest of the week: Just rest and recovery, mostly.  Finish reading my book.  

A peek into my day...

I can't be up taking pictures obviously, but I saw this and it tickled me.

  1. Oh that sounds like no fun at all. Especially at this time of year when it's so much fun to be out of doors. I do hope you will be better soon and at least able to sit outside....stay out of the kitchen for as long as you can though...

  2. Thank you :) I'm healing up nicely and starting to be able to be up and about.
