I’m not sure if people go back and read my comments on your comments – so THANK YOU ALL for saying lovely things! (Although, Kirsty? No thanks on the more abdominal surgery for better skin, LOL! And Karen – me? *flutters eyelids demurely* tufts of colour? Surely not!!)
Hiding nuts in those cheeks?!
Tired out today – apart from the eyebrow waxing appointment, I felt brave enough to actually go around the supermarket with Mr Beloved. (One of the regular checkout chicks said “I was wondering if he’d traded you in!”)
(oh, I also had those #@(_$*_@#$* super stiff and DARK chin and necks hairs waxed off today. Maaaaaaaan I hope that eventual HRT will settle those suckers down, cos they make me feel HIDEOUS. Ick ick ick ick ICK!)
The last day or two have been the first that I have been able to skip some of the pain meds – which I’m sure will be a great relief for my poor abused liver and bowel. Now if I can just get rid of the horrible ulcers in my mouth…
Not a lot else happening – I’m really looking forward to going to the Stitcher’s Dream Day Out that Marion from The Patchwork Angel is running this weekend – I’m going Saturday. I’m a leeeeeeeetle bit worried that it will be too much at once for me… but I booked LAST YEAR, so I’m GOING!
Cute, and flattering - yes?
I’m hoping perhaps to get to Gardam’s tomorrow to buy fabric to run up a quick little blouse to wear (assuming we’ll have nice weather this weekend) – I think the no-pattern peasant blouse from Threads #120 could be just the thing. (And no, I don’t think I have ANY suitable fabric in my stash, cos I don’t normally go for “filmy delicate” things. (Just sayin’, O Teabot5000™ and anyone else who has seen my stash, LOL!)
I keep feeling better every day… and I’m REALLY looking forward to getting cleared to exercise by the doc. I didn’t realise how very sick I was before the op – seriously, the last two or three months before surgery were some of the worst I’ve ever been. Talking to the doc a week after surgery when he explained just how badly gummed up everything was has only just started to sink in – I was probably weeks away from having to have EMERGENCY surgery. Scary.
Weirdest post-surgery phenom so far? I suspect my chocolate cravings were located in my ovaries, cos since they’ve been gone I haven’t wanted chocolate at all. (Even when I was still in hospital and begged the Teabot5000™ to bring me an icecream, he ended up eating most of the chocolate shell!) Apparently too much oestrogen can cause “cravings for sweets” along with a whole heap of other delightful symptoms (most of which I was having – yuk!) Now my ovaries are gone, I’m suffering just bout all the symptoms listed for LOW oestrogen – talk about your swings and roundabouts!
That’s about all – except – OMG, the final of US So You Think You Can Dance was on tonight and it was AWESOME!! (sorry, K, I didn’t tape it – our video has died. Waah!) I’d already spoilered myself with the winner, but that didn’t matter – the dancers were AMAZING. Now I’m eagerly awaiting the next season of the Australian verson, which will probably screen early next year, since the auditions start at the end of this month. (Ok, I admit it, I am a dance tragic, and was super excited when Adam said he was part of Step Up 3 *in 3D!*)
And now I’m off to lie in bed, read, and have 8 or 9 hot flashes and night long insomnia. Swings and roundabouts …
