On Tuesday, I had my post op doctor’s appointment and she was gentle but firm. The incisions look good and healing is going on, just not as fast as it should be. I was pushing myself a bit on lifting weights, even small 3 lb weighs are not good when you are trying to get abs to heal. I can continue to walk, slowly, around the block, but she said to give it another week or so of healing before I add anymore.
I am looking forward to stretching and dancing and getting out into the sun, at least I have a goal.
Talking about goals, I am down 3# YAY!
I have been watching what I put in my face and really trying to keep track on the my plate website. It keeps me accountable and for me, that is a good thing. I have had a few slip ups, but that is okay, no one is perfect and as long as I am happy all is good.
I know this weekend will be mostly spent in front of the computer, it is finals and I have been gone from one of my classes for 3 weeks. This class I have due-- two 3pg papers on discussion from classes I missed, a 10-pg paper or 50 slide PowerPoint on Uruguay and I need to type up notes for the final exam. Thank goodness, the final is open notes, too bad no one I had asked in class took notes the week I was gone. Sigh I will go over the book and see what I can come up with.
In my other class, I have four law cases to go over and write up IRAC's for each case. IRAC stands for Issues, Rules, Analysis and Conclusion. Oh so fun when discussing Employee Law.
I can say even though I know my plate is full, I am going to try to get to knitting tomorrow night. I need the relaxation and I just need to get away.
I do need to say a few Thank yous:
Last Thursday, I received a box in the mail. First I racked my brain as to why I was getting a box from California. It was the wrong address to be from family and I wasn't in any swaps with anyone in California that I knew of. I opened it and saw:
Lots of items all prettily wrapped up. I read and found out it was from Java Nut on Ravelry. Her and I became friends on the She-Knits boards and she has become a listener of the podcast I co-host. She sent the box as a recovery package. It is awesome!
Full of Chocolate goodness that I am snacking in little bits, so I can have them while still trying to be on a diet (moderation is good). Everything is just perfect for relaxing and healing. The little purple thing on top of the molasses chips is a light that clips on the books so I can read in bed, or knit in the car. AWESOME!
Thank you so much.
On Monday I received this package from XgvjXof Ravelry who lives in Norway. I was her partner in the Monthly Adventures 4/4 swap that was all about food. She sent yummy European milk chocolate and 13 bags of different teas for me to try. A goo cuppa makes me happy. Thank you it is perfect. Now I need to be a good swapper and send a package off to my partner. I have until the 10th, so I am not late yet.
On the last podcast I talked about how I wanted to try entrelac, I wanted to start small so I invited the listeners to join me in a garterlac along. I think garterlac is gartercrack. It is addicting and wonderful. I don't like huge washcloths, so I stopped two rows early, and I have yet to weave in the ends, but I can see me making something from this. I know entrelac has you purl back for stocking stitch squares, but I don't mind purls. Yes, I am weird.
I think that is all for tonight. After finals I hope to blog more often.
