I'm still in excruciating pain but refuse to take any more pain pills (Hydrocodone). I stopped taking those the second day after surgery because they made me start itching madly, all over my body. It was like I had massive mosquito bites and it was making me cuckoo. Now, I'm just taking handfuls of Advil.
I'm still trying to get SD's room finished but the painter moves at his own pace, which I cannot control. However, I can rest easy in the knowledge that he has done his job well, albeit slow as molasses. Having explained this to SD, I believe she understands things might not be finished in time for her arrival and she's good with it as long as she doesn't have to sleep in a fetal position any longer. Okay. Furthermore, we've given him that time *off* so that she can have her privacy. When she gets mad, she takes no prisoners, so we wouldn't want that to happen, would we?.
That said, I think her room is going to be amazing. I've done my homework & can't wait to get everything installed and put to use. I hope it's going to be fabulous but won't really know until I have a chance to finish it all!
Since my surgery last Wednesday, I've only had chocolate shakes, lots of water, scrambled egg sandwiches with the crust cut off, and potato soup (that I made yesterday). Mr. Snoots is stuck with cooking for himself but at least he can eat what he wants.
I'm especially excited about Thanksgiving and cooking all of the food I won't be able to eat. Let's see... I can eat cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy and perhaps some green bean casserole if I keep my head tilted far to the left. It could work!
Obviously, I won't want to smile but knowing myself I'm sure that I will, exposing my newly removed teeth in all their gaping grandeur. Each one resembles a miniature of the Grand Canyon, tied with a bow (stitch) and is about as attractive as it gets in my life these days. Please. Don't be jealous.
So, what are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?......
