Where did this week go?

I was going to spend time on the computer this week. I have book posts and pantry posts and all kinds of posts... all running through my head. However, what I haven't had is time at home in front of the computer. I ended up spending hours in various doctor's waiting rooms instead.

I know what happened to today, I slept through part of it! If the old adage my mom always told me is true, that when we sleep a lot in a day it means our body needs it (assuming, of course, we're not doing this every day)... then I needed to sleep twelve hours last night and another two hours this afternoon!

I woke up just in time this afternoon to take a load of towels out of the dryer and put a load of whites into the dryer, start dinner (as Christopher would be home at 4:00 to eat and his dad at 8:00... that makes meal planning interesting), and generally do a little decluttering.

Thank you all for your prayers and comments! I think it amazing that he has been protected from further damage with all that heavy lifting he does, and yes... he does not plan to be in the weight room in the near future. :)

Stephanie had double hernia surgery at age three months. They run in my husband's side of the family. The only injury he had in Viet Nam was a hernia. They don't give purple hearts for that. No, they send you back on the front lines within days... or at least they did in that war.

I'm taking all the advice offered in comments, too. If I tell Christopher, "I read something online", he tends to give more weight to it and not tell me the advice is an "old wives's tale". Even if the advice giver is an old wife.

Glad that you have been getting a little extra your mother used to must have needed it. That's what I told myself after my two-hour nap this afternoon, too.

Next week will be better...more time for you at home and less time in the doc's office. That'll be a very good thing.

Brenda, I agree with your mother. If you feel you need to rest, then your body may be trying to let you know that's what you need. I think naps are wonderful. You have had so much going on lately and I think you deserve some nice quiet time. I pray you continue to rest and will get refreshed.

I think we should have been part bear and we could hibernate Jan. thru March. This winter has been awful. I am ready for spring. I sleep a lot too. I hope Christopher will get his surgery soon. You take it easy I think we will all feel better when there is more sunshine and we can get outside.
