WARNING-Cranky Rant Coming

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

I am so crabby today! It started with my having to go back to work yesterday after my knee surgery. I get to work and there's a bunch of stuff that didn't get done while I was gone (not necessarily anyone's fault - it's just when someone is gone things pile up sometimes). Not many people do my part of the job regularly so they don't know how to do certain things like I do. Plus there aren't many patients this week so I wasn't kept as busy as some weeks.

The knee is fine - of course it's sore, but it's not a big deal and will recover nicely but I am seriously limited in the amount of activity I can do and even though I know I need to take it easy, I'm still frustrated. Monday night I walked for a mile around our neighborhood and even though it wasn't much, it was still some activity and more than I had done since the night before the surgery.

Tuesday I wanted to go for a walk but my husband bribed me with going shopping for plants for the garden and I gladly agreed. Tonight I wanted to walk but had a webinar for school to listen to so I did that but it wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be and was a little confusing so I was a little annoyed. After it was over, I wanted to walk but Ken wanted me to watch Paul plant the plants in the garden so he could do some other things around the yard. I should be HAPPY he was doing all of this before he leaves for the state dart tournament tomorrow but instead I am crabby about not being able to go for a walk. And got antsy standing around the garden watching everyone else plant since I still can't bend down much and can't kneel at all on my knee.

Then I had to wait for Ken to be done so we could watch American Idol but when we went to watch it, the stupid DVR didn't record it. SOOOOOO ANNOYED! I feel like a toddler who didn't get her way and I really want to have a little tantrum but instead I'll just go to bed.

Of course, it could ALWAYS be much worse and maybe this is a little residual reaction from my mom's passing but I'm just cranky. Sorry to rain on everyone's parade - tomorrow has to be better.

    I get that way sometimes too... Hopefully a good night's sleep has helped.
