So after having my appendix removed Monday night, and coming home Tuesday, I have had to give up my normal perfectionist and controlling ways! It's so hard! My man has been a Superman though and his love for me is amazing and I am grateful. I was a tad bit worried that there was clean laundry all around our livingroom, dishes all over the kitchen counter and the floor was a bit too fluffy looking...we had guests arriving today from the North Island and I like things to be just right...so yesterday I just took a deep breath, grabbed a cup of tea and walked past the chaos and by 10 PM the house was perfect...at least for him...and it was good enough for me! People would know that I wasn't able to do much like wash floors, etc....so I have been proud of myself and have fallen in more love with my man during this process.
Tomorrow is my man's 40th Birthday Party and I may attend for an hour or so...but this sucks! I was the one that was suppose to do everything and I had to give up control for that too! LOL Tonight his birth family met the family that raised him and I missed out on that as well.
I am however a work addict...I can't help it! When you love what you do, it comes out of every pore and you can't shut it off, so in the hospital, and even from bed, my clients text me orders, they text me hurdles and things they need help with and I do whatever I can to help them. My man will get orders together and the clients can pick up. I have made copies, written cards and emailed/text/FB'd them answers and support during their weight loss journey since I can't see them. They don't get an easy out because I lost an appendix! They may not be weighing in...but I'll know when they do and I am still here! I haven't died. My man keeps telling me to turn my brain off...my business is my heart...:)
I do have to share that I had great satisfaction when at least 4 different doctors asked me if I had fish N chips, KFC, or Takeaways when I started feeling pain Sunday! I replied...I had 6 oz of grilled skinless chicken breast, 2 tomatoes, 2 large slices of red onion, a wholemeal tortilla, 1/2 cup refried beans, 1 cucumber, and garlic and lime juice. The look on their faces was priceless!!! Next question: What do you do? "I'm a weight Loss and Nutrition Consultant"....smirk....wink....he he he he
I have never drank, did drugs, or smoked and never had or want kids! It's fun to do this by the way! I just giggle and giggle on the inside!
Okay...I'm rambling...better get back to getting my Sparkpoints in :) Have a great weekend! xoxox
Thank you for all your lovely messages and sparkgoodies! I am itching to get back to normal!!!
