A restful day...


Who knew that one could sleep so much?

The day started off great by having a two hour nap. Good grief - why two hours?   I don't know, but I lay on the couch with my ice pack and a flannel quilt and poof - I was gone.  Got up - did a bit of work, went to the quilt store and the grocery store with my chauffeur, back home and had another nap.   One thing about work - I miss going to visit the quilt stores.  There is no time and well quite frankly - no need to purchase more fabric!!!

I did manage to get a small quilt quilted before it was time for another nap.

Customer quilt - DONE


I have to say that just doing this small quilt, I could already feel a big difference in my leg.  Normally my right leg is tired when working on the long arm and I have to stretch it out.  Not one stretch was required!!!!   And the surgeon said I would have to wait three months to feel the full benefit of what he did.  Oh boy - I can't wait for those three months to be up so I can really feel awesome!!!!

Then back to the couch for another long nap.  This time, I think I got up for dinner and then back to the couchh to watch a movie and then to bed.    I did manage to sneak in 6,000 steps on the FitBit.  Not sure how - oh yes - I did take the dogs for a walk in the morning and before I went to bed to stretch out the knee.  If I don't walk, it seizes up and that is the last thing that needs to happen. I MUST use the knee - those are the surgeon's orders.

So for all of you who think that I wasn't going to take good care of myself, I slept most of the day away, was warm and snuggly.  The only thing - because of the timing of our outing, I didn't get a Tim's tea.  Drat!!!   I need to have a chat with the chauffeur!

I had a pretty good night - I'm not waking up, although my knee is still a bit stiff, but I wouldn't be surprised if most of that is due to the bandaging which comes off today at Noon.   See - I was told 48 hours and that will be 48 hours.  Just in case you think I'm pushing the healing process - I'm following orders.

The big question will be - can I drive the car tomorrow???   I'll have a better idea of that once the bandages come off today.  And then see how the knee bends.  It isn't painful, just stiff and I want to make sure that I have good movement before getting behind the wheel of the car.  See - I really am a sensible person!   And the surgeon said I could drive when I'm up to it and NOT on pain meds which I didn't take any - didn't need to.

Made the backing and loaded it this morning for the next quilt that I hope to have done today.  I have a lot of other stuff that needs to be done - none of it can be put off so it's going to be a busy busy week and I need to be well rested to make everything happen.  No danger there - I feel another nap coming on.

On that note - Have a great day!


Ciao!!!!

  1. The excess of naps is your body dealing with the poison of the general. Also natures way of 'trying' to slow you down.
