Good Week so Far

This week is going really well. I have been blessed with an abundance of freelance assignments this week and I've had the luxury of picking and choosing just the ones I want. Also, I've had the joy of being the caregiver for a change. Yesterday I drove Brad to the oral surgeon in the morning for a consultation about his wisdom teeth. Later that afternoon I drove him back again for the actual extraction procedure. It made me feel really good to be the one he leaned on (quite literally thanks to anesthesia!). I dropped his prescriptions off and picked them up, went to the grocery store and got some soft foods for him including some Ben and Jerry's ice cream that he ended up eating for dessert.

Brad spent the night on the couch which meant it was MY turn to see what it's like to have your significant other be gone. It was all I could do not to go sleep on the hard floor next to the couch just so I could be next to him. I don't know how we get through it when I'm hospitalized. Must be the grace of God and a huge dose of patience.

Today I had one of my personal training sessions at the gym. It was the first time I had been since I was hospitalized. I was initially a little concerned about how clean the place might be, but it turns out my fears were unfounded. I took note of 3 people with sanitizing sprays and towels cleaning the equipment. Hooray!

My trainer says I need to be doing more cardio. He was impressed with how my balance had improved; I told him I had taken my weights along to the hospital and had done some of the exercises there that he had shown me. I didn't want to loose too much ground, you know? He said it looked like it paid off. My right side of my body is still overcompensating somehow, but we're working on that.

After the gym I came home and played with the bunnies. They are absolutely adorable. They've come a long way in a short period of time. They aren't quite to the point of sitting in my lap yet, but they at least come over and sniff at me if I sit still on the floor long enough. They mostly just frolic with each other. They're practically airborne for most of the time they play together. They've already learned "bedtime" and "no." Those are the most important things in my book. We haven't had any accidents, but we did have an instance of breaking and entering. They found the door to my craft room ajar and snuck in. As soon as I went in and turned on the light they scampered out rather quickly as if they knew they were trespassing. Such interesting little creatures. I have a lot of fun with them.

Tomorrow I plan to get my haircut and meet with a friend of mine. Sounds like an easy day, doesn't it?

Glad you're feeling so much better and can enjoy an "easy"day!!Take care!
