I know I’m going to flip out with holiday stress any minute now …
But, I’ve been too busy with non-holiday stuff to stress out about the fact I’ve done nothing (Christmas-related) yet.
Today I’m visiting a close family friend who recently had an adorable baby boy.
It’s been awhile since I’ve had a baby in my life.
I’m looking forward to meeting him.
I had so much fun buying gifts for him ….
It made me want a baby of my very own.
(And no, I’m absolutely not planning to do anything about those maternal urges.)
Tomorrow I will (finally!!) see Paul Newman.
It has only been two weeks since my last visit, but Thanksgiving is always particularly brutal on my arm.
(I’m pretty sure the rain is not helping either … did you know changes in barometric pressure really DO affect joint injuries?)
I had an appointment yesterday with my orthopedic surgeon and I begged him not to touch me.
I am *that* inflamed right now.
Of course, in my doc’s eyes it’s all the more reason I need to have Surgery #10.
I just can’t bring myself to do it.
I just want Paul Newman to keep taking care of me so I can manage my life as best as I can.
(Confession: Paul Newman wants me to have Surgery #10 also.)
Purchasing a new computer a day or two before Thanksgiving was not my smartest move.
I’ve been trying to get work done half on one computer, half on another, and partially on an iPad.
I haven’t had the time to consolidate everything to one place.
Also, newborn babies, and fluffy puppies, have to take priority over decorating my house and/or gift shopping.
Everything that needs to get done will get done, eventually.
I’m just not sure WHEN.
