So, it's been a while. Well, not too much of a while, but it's been almost a week. I've been wanting to update, yesterday I even loaded the photos from my phone onto my computer, but then I fell asleep. Wednesday I had plenty of time to update (I didn't fall asleep until 8am), but for some reason I just couldn't. It was almost like writer's block, but since I'm writing about my life I'm not sure that I can have writer's block. Also, I had a tough Monday. I know, they're not good excuses, but that's all I have for you.
What have I been up to this past week? Well, let me tell you!
Sunday: Emotional break down. Yup. I'm half convinced I'm manic depressive. I have days where everything that happens seems to be crap. I was in an immense amount of pain on both Sunday and Monday. The worst part was my pain medicine no longer put the smallest dent in my agony (I didn't want to say pain again..). I had also started having major charlie horses in both of my calves.
Monday: Shopping with Sarah! I needed some retail therapy after Sunday. We went into Torrid where I dropped a size or two. Before, depending on the garment, I wore a 3 or 4. When I went on Monday I fit into 2's in most things and a 1 in a long sleeved dress. I ended up getting herringbone leggings, a blue/purple cami, a lace three quarters top, and a new belt with a bow on it! Then we went into Hot Topic. I haven't been in there in years, but they had an AWESOME Power Rangers top. I need to go down about one more size before I can buy it. But, I did buy hot pink glow in the dark nail polish. I'll be sure to let you guys know if it glows when I get my gel polish off.
Tuesday: Tuesday was awesome..mostly. I had a doctor's appointment with my General Practitioner. According to her scale, I weighed 252 aka 5 more pounds until I hit my goal surgery weight!! Well, maybe. The only scale that matters is the scale in my surgeons office and since he is going on vacation this coming week I won't be weighing in with him. I got something to help with the pain, the muscle spasms, and anxiety in general. I also hung out with Bill and Kelly later on in the evening.
Wednesday: I went with Mrs. Kathleen to our chiropractor (I totally referred her and she loves it/him as much as I do). She has him work on her shoulder, while my visits are still to keep my lower back in check and my neck in proper alignment. After that we went to lunch with my mom and Joanns. Now for the blogject: Dressing up in silly hats in public. I am an elephant and a pretty princess. I know, don't be jealous of my awesomeness.
Thursday: I got my hurr did! I don't have a photo of the finished product, but I will put one up soon.
Friday (today): I babysat the Rissland children. Yay for babysitting! Now I'm sitting in Bill's apartment while both Bill and Eric are playing WoW..and I'm writing this blog. It's funny how we can all sit on our own computers, but still have a proper conversation mixed with a bit of WoW noises and the clickity clack of my nails on my keyboard.
I'm going to try and update more often, I promise - especially since we're getting close to surgery! The whole point in starting this blog was A) to keep everyone informed and B) to hopefully help someone else that is young and getting a hip replacement.
So, in the next post: hair photo and Doctor Who framed poster photo...AND MORE!
