Thanks for the much-needed kick in the booty. I feel better knowing that a) my feelings are normal and b) I'll get there eventually. I know I can't rush this, and if I try I will only screw things up. My body is way smarter than my head, after all.
Speaking of which, JayZ is sleeping on my shoulder and making the CUTEST. NOISES. EVER. He'll be a pumpkin tonight and help us pass out candy. :)
Just got back from the Docs. Without giving TMI, and/or grossing out the world at large, let's just say that she was VERY excited to see that things are healing VERY well. Also, inconvenient/embarrassing/nasty things that often happen when you have certain procedures that I had are NOT happening, which is outstanding. Then I had a conversation to ask her about using the elliptical that went something like this:
TST: So I have a question for you...
TST: See, I've been walking 2-3 miles a day the past 2 weeks....
DOC: (Making a face like I just told her I smoke crack for breakfast) WHAT? No, no no.....
DOC: 2-3 miles is WAY too much. I don't want you to have that much friction there...(yes, she said friction in regards to my bum)
TST: But...you said I could walk...?
DOC: Like, a mile or so at a leisurely pace! Not 2-3 miles and not fast!
TST: Oh. (Thinks in head that now is probably not a good time to ask about using the elliptical)
DOC: In two weeks you should be able to get back to exercising.
TST: Oh. (Thinks again that she might smack me if I ask about using the elliptical) Okay.
And so it goes. But when you tell me I can start walking, then I START, you know? Homey don't do leisurely one mile slow walks.
But I guess I will for 2 more weeks.
The weather here is absolutely GORGEOUS--I heart NEOhio in the fall. The leaves are bright colors and it's a nice 68 degrees...no humidity, no mosquitoes...perfect for Halloween.
So I guess me and the little Pumpkin will be going for a slow walk and then passing out candy, which I am going to REALLY try hard not to eat.
Except for one fun-sized Butterfinger. 2 glorious points. MMMMMMMMM.
