Time for a Break

As I looked over my schedule for the next two weeks, I saw that I had packed it pretty full of important things to do. With meetings, rigid deadlines, and work multiplying by the second, I had not built in any wiggle room.

Soooo...how can I toss this whole mess out the window?

Oooh, oooh, I know! Pick me, pick me!

Appendecitis!

So here I am, laid out on the couch, post-surgery. I am on oxycodone, my speech slurred like a drunk on New Year's. Occassionally, my two daughters turn into four, and I can't tell which one's talking to me. Or what they're saying. My doctor has threatened severe bodily harm and injury if I leave the house during the next two weeks. Right now, that doesn't seem like a problem, because whenever I even think about moving off the couch, the pain shooting up my side takes care of those plans.

Whether I want it or not, I'm getting a break.

Lawyer,

I feel your pain. I never had a severe bout of appendicitis before my emergency surgery though.

It took me two weeks to recover from the surgery.

I'm sure your daughters will be helpful and the work will still be there (with more piled on but that isn't comforting so forget I said that part).

Thoughts and prayers go out to you for a speedy recovery.

Trust me-take the two weeks of R & R. I was a tough ass after a week deceided to do some physical work. Bad move still have scar tissue to deal with.


Follow Doc's orders=speedy recovery.

God Bless

Bob,

Thanks for your prayers! Yeah, I need to slow down for a minute. Thankfully, my wife and daughters have been marvelous.

Did it MY way,

I'm not the kind of person to sit around, but you make a good point. And, I've got a lot of friends that are making sure I don't take any shortcuts.

Thanks for stopping by!
