Almost Summer Vacation

Today was the 2nd to the last day of school for my youngest 2 boys. (The oldest finished last week) My littlest 'graduated' from Pre-K today so next year he will be in school all day long as a Kindergartener. I didn't cry like I imagined I would, but I am sure it will really hit me that first day of school next year. My middle son will start the 4th grade. Where on earth does the time go????

Last week I had my surgery and it went very well. I had to be in at 6:00am, and was the first procedure scheduled. I was in pre-op by 6:45 and had been given my anesteshia by 7:30. I woke up around 9:30 and the first thing I thought was 'Are we going to do this sometime???" LOL I left the hospital around 10:30 and was home shortly after 11. I slept off and on for most of the day. When I finally did wake up that evening I really felt wonderful. No pain or anything. Thursday was a bit different as I woke up with a horrible sore throat and a sore right hand where they inserted my IV.

It took me a few hours to remember that they told me my throat would be sore from removing the breathing tube. And add to that they said the 'happy juice' made me sick to my stomach. So I had a sore throat for several days. Thankfully I am finally starting to feel better about that. My right hand is still sore, but I can't really rest that as I do EVERYTHING with it, so I am just trying to take it easy.
I get tired really easy and have been taking naps every day, which is very weird for me, as I normally don't nap unless I am sick. But as my Momma keeps reminding me, I did just have surgery, so I am really trying to listen to my body and rest when it wants me too!

Now on to other things! LOL. When Momma got down here we got started on my craft area re-org...almost everything has been pulled out of my area and is sitting in boxes and bags in my living room. We picked up tons of new storage boxes so hopefully next week, (once school is totally done) we can get back into sorting and re'packing' my supplies! I am itching to get to creating, but can't find anything right yet! LOL

I will take pictures as I get things put together. Sorry for being gone for so long, and will try to update more often. =D


  1. Hope you are feeling better today. Take good care of yourself! So nice that your mom can be there with you. I know you want to get back to mini-making!
    Warm compresses(warm damp washcloth)might help your hand...

  2. hope you continue to feel better every day Deborah-so glad everything went well!

  3. Kathi, warm compresses is a great idea! I'll have to try that this evening!
    Kim thanks...I am feeling better every day! :-)It's nice to be feeling almost like myself again. The urge to nap is slowly going away too, so I see that as a good thing.


Hi! Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing what you have to say! =D
