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.
