Sounds easy enough, right? Here goes nothing…
Day 1- Something you hate about yourself. Wow, what a great way to start! Haha. Ok, something I hate about myself is my sensitivity to sound. I don’t know if it’s like an OCD thing or what, but I can’t stand loud noises and it’s a constant battle for me. It’s extremely hard to deal with especially when I have two small children who like to make a lot of noise! Like right now for instance, as I type this Lily is in her room singing at the top of her lungs. Sounds like a pretty normal thing for a 3 year old to do, right? And while it’s adorable, it’s so distracting for me and I can’t think about anything other than how loud she is! I also have a hard time talking on the phone because I have to have it completely silent while I do it…I mute the TV, have to tell the kids repeatedly to be quiet, and I usually hang up very frustrated because any noise whatsoever is extremely distracting when I’m trying to have a phone conversation. I don’t know how to get over this, but it’s something I just have to deal with I guess.
Well that was easy! Stay tuned for day 2 tomorrow.
I’m recovering from surgery just fine. I’m still super sore but it’s getting easier to move and get up from laying down. I have to take it easy for a while still and the doctor said no housework for awhile and no lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk. I guess laundry baskets are off limits then. I’m having an extremely hard time with this whole “not doing anything” thing. I’m not a lazy person and I’m usually cleaning constantly. Last night the kitchen mess was getting to me. Just think of the horror…dishes stacked up in the sink for days! No no no! I can’t handle that. I got up and cleaned the entire kitchen and did all the dishes. I think I overdid it because I definitely felt it when I was laying down later. I was shaking and I just felt weird. Shayne pointed out that not only did I break the rules and clean the kitchen, but I also didn’t eat much yesterday either. I think all I had was coffee, cadbury eggs, a pepsi, and eggrolls. Not a healthy diet, right? So I forced myself to eat some yogurt with strawberries, a glass of juice, and a fruity popsicle and I felt much better. Today I’m taking it easy again and I’m laid up on the couch with the laptop and remote. I got Ayden off to school and besides that I’m not doing anything, even though I cringe every time I see the laundry baskets getting full. I need to just breathe and let things go and remember I should be back to my normal self in another week or so and I can do all the cleaning I want after that! Right now I just need to focus on resting and healing…and plenty of blogging.
