Quick Pained Post

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Instead of getting lots of reading done, doing Christmas cards and catching up on the Tivo, I've spent the last several days writhing in pain, and once I got stronger meds, sleeping all darned day. This knee surgery sucked, and the recovery is nothing like I expected. I took (or was given) my first shower yesterday and it was lovely, lovely I tell you. I feel so I typed that Lily walked out of the litter box and scooted her dirty butt on the carpet. I guess she is feeling clean now too.

It's been an interesting couple of days, filled with nice phone calls from friends, lots of gentle cuddling with Fern and Lily, several terrifying doorbell rings where I prayed the doors were locked. (They were, and it was actually an edible arrangement delivery from work which was super cool)

My post isn't all that great, but I wanted to move the poor Olive picture down a little ways and bring some good cheer. So GOOD CHEER TO ALL and I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving. I will be enjoying some stuffing and mashed potatoes that were promised to be vegan. I can't trust Mircea's mom on that sometimes, but at least they'll be vegetarian. I've been on an interesting diet the past few days. Since I can't move anywhere and Mircea is working 12 hour days he just leaves me with a weird grab bag of food. Yesterday it was a pretzel and a bag of assorted (disgusting) crackers. Today I got some cold perogies and really watery coucous, but it was better than the nasty grab bag. He's so sweet trying to be my nursemaid and work all those hours so I am trying to think of a good "thank you" surprise when I am finally mobile again. Somehow I have a feeling it will involve a lot of summer sausage and cheese, but we'll see. I may find another way to his heart.

lol @ lily - that's something my cat would do!

I am sorry to hear recovery is being such a rough process. Although I do have to laugh at the grab bag of food.

I hope that you had a good Thanksgiving and are feeling a bit better by now!

ha ha I thought of a thank you "gift" but it didn't require cheese.
