A day of rest and worship today.
Not much surgery preparation, thank goodness, I believe I needed a break!
Life goes on.....
Tomorrow I will be gearing up, with housecleaning, grocery shopping, and setting up my office computer equipment on my already crowded desk!
Question? How do you fit a second laptop computer and a large screen montor and a wireless keyboard on a desk that already has a laptop, a printer, an external hard drive, and stand alone computer speakers? Plus a lamp, a radio, a fan, a few small boxes to hold pens and pencils and paper clips, etc., a box of tissues, a desk calendar, and sometimes an iPad?
Answer? Oh boy, I'll let you know how this shakes down....
Have a good one?

Hello Sparkfriends, I am pumped for this surgery and believe all will go just fine!
I had my last day of work "at work" for a while, although I will certainly be working from home. I told my boss that he will probably be getting e-mails from me on Monday afternoon, but if I were him I would ignore them, drugs.....
Speaking of which, I plan to take nothing stronger than tylenol 3 and that for a short a time as possible. Do you have Tylenol 3 in the States? It is tylenol combined with codeine. Anything stronger will turn me into a gibbering puddle on the floor, way too much.
I have my joke ready for my surgeon. I will ask him if he does tummy tucks on the side. He is pretty serious, hope he at least smiles!
Got my haircut, and moving into the weekend with housecleaning and grocery shopping on the horizon.
Surgery, here I come!

Continuing to count down, and feeling very ready to get on with this.
Today I stopped all of the supplements I take except biotin. I take this one for my hair and nails and the idea of stopping it made me too anxious. As well, I take it because my doctor told me to, so I view it as a "pseudo prescription". Everything else is stopped though.
When I got home, I adjusted the cane we got when my DH had knee replacement surgery, I was told to bring it to the hospital for when I go home. It is ready to be used.
I also downloaded an iPad app that assists you in organizing your music. It cost a bit. Like a lot of folks who have been with music for years, I have a number of what are called "fake books" that I have put together. I have two from when I was a teen that have folk song lyrics and chords. This app allows you to enter the lyrics and the chords, among a whole lot of other things. It will even transpose for you. No more counting half steps on my fingers! It should keep me a bit busy anyway.
I did not binge last night. Yesterday and today I have eaten more than usual but still in my calorie range. What it is, it is. No worries about it for now.
Off to practice guitar! Have a good evening everyone.

We are getting quite the thunderstorm right now, this is good, it has been too dry.
And, I don't mind because I brought a lot of "stuff" home from work today and got it in the house before the rain hit.
This is especially good, as the stuff included paper files, a large monitor, a wireless keyboard, and so on.
Yes, I have brought home from my office allt he equipment I will need to work at home.
And, I did a bit more of stocking up today, on Kashi bars. I think that will be the end of it for the stocking up.
I do have my worries about the surgery, but am managing them with self talk and as much kindness to myself that I can give myselt. I may binge, but I will not get upset if I do. I feel up for and ready for the surgery and it will go fine!
Take care, off to cook dinner, have a good one and take care if you are getting some violent weather!

Busy day at work today, part of which was preparing to be away from the office. I've had meetings about what I needed to move ahead so i can continue work in projects at home.
I have two direct reports. I have arranged alternate methods of supervision with one and will do so for the second tomorrow.
Feeling peaceful and optimistic.
