Sunday Social


1. Favorite New Years eve you’ve had before?
For a couple of years we went to my co-workers house for a lovely dinner & a night of drinks & games. We weren't invited this year since I no longer work with them. Sad since we used to consider them family. We always had the best time playing cornhole & drunk jenga!
2. Are you doing anything for NYE this year and if so what?
We've been invited out to one of CJ's friends houses for a party but will probably not go since I am still recovering from Friday's surgery. I don't know how long I could make it out of the house.
3. Name a book we should all read come January?
I am reading Still LoLo. It's a book about Lauren Scruggs who was in a plane accident last year. So far it's a really good book.
4. What are your new years resolutions?
Rehab my knee the right way (no rushing it!!), loose weight (I would like to loose about 45 pounds this year), get all A's spring semester (only taking two classes shouldn't be too hard), gain more patience for my boys (all 3 of them).

Yesterday I actually put some weight on my knee! I didn't fall over in pain like I thought I would have. I definitely needed more pain meds yesterday than I did on Friday since the nerve block had worn off. I am in quite a bit of pain this morning but can't take any pain meds until I eat some breakfast. Hopefully that will be soon. We are still at my parents house but I am ready to go home and get the boys back in their own environment. I really would like to go home tonight but CJ has to bowl and I am not ready to be home by myself with the boys. I don't know what I am going to do come Tuesday when I'm home with them while CJ is at work. I am hoping to be able to drive (well I'm going to have to drive home from my parents house at least tomorrow) come Wednesday so Hayden can go back to school on time. But we will see. Once the meds kick in they knock me out pretty quickly. Although I will have finished up one prescription by Wednesday I think.

Spring semester starts a week from tomorrow & I just ordered my textbooks yesterday. I normally have them ordered weeks in advance. Oh well, they should be here by Wednesday/Thursday and then I'm hoping to get a head start on reading for both of my classes (Personal Finance & Intro to Political Science).

I am starting to go stir-crazy in the house! I would love to go with CJ to the bowling alley tonight but I know that is not a smart idea. My surgeon took pictures of my knee while doing the surgery. My tendon was all torn up. It was so ragged looking, he ended up cutting out quite a bit of it. The upside is everything else looked good (meniscus, ACL, & MCL). I have to call tomorrow and make an appt for next week. CJ has his next blood patch next week as well. That will be a long day for me with a lot of walking. We will have to make sure we get to the hospital way early so we are not late getting to his appointment. I only *have* to use crutches for ten days...I'm sure I will use them longer. I cannot wait to take this huge bandage off of my leg today, it is driving me crazy! I am anxious to see what my knee looks like as well.

Time to go start bothering my mom for breakfast :-)
