Whew! Today was my last day at work before surgery. I have remote access so will do paperwork from home Friday & Monday to save 2 days of leave, but won't be back to real live work until AUGUST! Lots of well-wishes from co-workers. Enough that it made it difficult to get all my tasks done in the time I had left. As problems go, not a bad one to have.
I got my hair cut--told her to cut my bangs a bit short as it would be a while before I could come back. She misunderstood & cut about 3" off the bottom too. Oh well, now I don't have to worry about whether I'm too old for a ponytail :-) After that we went to the Sears Outlet store & plunked down a grand for a new fridge to be delivered Monday. I'm just happy that will be taken care of before surgery, although would have been better to have it in before company comes tomorrow. Until Monday all we have is a 2 cubic foot fridge that is destined for my office when I go back.
Tomorrow is work from home then daughter's college graduation (version 1) in the afternoon. Saturday we are chauffering my brother & sis-in-law to graduation (version 2). I'm not going to that one as there is no way I could tolerate the crowds going in, sitting in Husky Stadium for 4 hours, then the crowds out. So we're going to drop them off & go find something else to do for 4 hours, then retrieve them plus the graduate, meet her twin at work & all go out for dinner. At which I plan to completely ignore calories and sodium content. I'm going to get whatever sounds good--I know after surgery nothing will be appealing for a while. And all the while marvel at the concept that someone I gave birth to (yesterday, wasn't it?) is a college graduate!
P.S. No, I'm not nervous about surgery. I am, however, increasingly intolerant of my damned hip the closer I get to the big day.
