It’s been about a week since my first post and some things have happened…first and foremost I had my surgery (a breast reduction)!!! I have actually felt pretty good. The first day is a sleepy blur in my memory, but I don’t remember being in much pain and I do remember my wonderful friends that came to visit me. I also have a super awesome stepmom who came to stay with me during and after my surgery. She stayed with me at the hospital, changed my dressings when I got home, and cooked for me and took care of my house for me. I couldn’t have asked for better help!! It’s amazing the things people do for you when they don’t have to. I mean she’s my stepmom. She didn’t have to do any of that for me but she did. Amazing.
Now that I have had my surgery I am off work for the next 6 weeks. What to do with myself? Hmmm….luckily it’s the holiday season so with Thanksgiving and Christmas and family coming to visit it will fly by. I can’t wait for Thanksgiving! We always go to my Grandmother’s (my Mom’s mom). This year it will be my Grandparents, an uncle and his wife, another uncle, me, and my little brother and his wife. That will be fun! I can’t wait to see everyone. Especially my little brother. He is in the Army, but getting out in a couple weeks, and I haven’t seen him in months so this will be a good Thanksgiving!
After Thanksgiving Christmas will be right around the corner! I have some cute ideas for a Christmas tree this year and can’t wait to get it together! It might not be very traditional but that’s ok, I’m not very traditional myself :) Anyway, I will post pics when I get it all done!
So, a little bit more about me I suppose. First of all you should know that I LOVE to read!! And that I read pretty much everything! My all time favorite author is probably V.C. Andrews. My Grandmother (my Dad’s mom) got me turned on to those when I was younger and that was our “thing”. Before she died she gave me all of hers and now I am proud to say that I own them all! I also love Nicholas Sparks, Iris Johansen, Dan Brown, Jodi Piccoult, Candace Bushnell, Jennifer Weiner, Lauren Weisberger, John Grisham, and Stieg Larsson. I am also very much into the Harry Potter and Twilight books :)
More things I love: my wonderful family and friends, old Disney movies, the smell of Gain’s Apple Mango Tango laundry detergent, tanning, the color pink, my Chi straightening iron, summer, anything zebra print, the Razorbacks, peonys, lemon lip balm, anything pumpkin (coffee, pie, candles…), a good massage, Grey’s Anatomy, good music, pretty scarves, Kathy Van Zeeland bags, manis and pedis, NYC, sushi, shopping, and taking trips with my girls!!
Well, my arms are still a little sore from surgery so that’s all I will be posting for now. Hopefully I will be able to post more than once a week. I like putting everything out there and seeing it in writing.
