#5. Getting Back to
Well it has been almost one month since the DD Spinal Fusion. She had her Post-Op appointment yesterday. The doctor is very pleased with her recovery and so is mom. We are starting to get back to normal. She no longer requires the prescription pain meds and we have transitioned to over the counter. We are going to gradually begin to add certain levels of activity back into her schedule and all in all I am so happy that the hardest past of her recovery is behind us.
#4. Getting the green light for the DD’s orthopedic surgeon that she now has been cleared to walk the dog!!!!!!!!! We will be going on a trial run in a bit!
#3. Girls Night – Dinner and a Movie
With the hubs out of town I make it a rule to cook as little as possible if at all. I called a close friend and we made plans to meet at a new Mexican restaurant. Two mom’s two DD’s met for dinner and some good conversation and then we took a stroll through the local Blockbuster for a movie. We ended Bride Wars with Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. It was really cute, a nice PG Chick Flick (although I was a bit disappointed that both the young women were cohabitating with their said boyfriends prior to marriage, but given the tone of today’s society those who choose to wait for marriage are in the minority) All in all it was a good movie! There might have been a Pomegranate Martini involved as well!
#2. Getting to Babysit My Granddaughter
She is three months old and came for a visit, She giggled, and she looked around, cooed, and made sweet baby noises. I got to kiss her chubby cheeks, play with her fingers, feed her, play peek-A-boo and generally have a fine time.
#1. Netflix Watch Instantly
OMGosh, I am not sure if this is a good thing or not but I LOVE it. Havening recently explored this option with my Netflix account it could rapidly become very addicting. You see all I have to do now to watch a movie is point and click. Last night when I retuned home from my accountability meeting, I tucked my DD in bed and I retired to my own room. I cot comfy in my jammies and a bowl of butter pecan ice cream and snuggle up in my bed with my laptop (since the hubs is out of town) and watched “Maid of Honor”. I did not have to go any where, do anything, just point my mouse arrow and click play and in a few minutes I’m watching a movie. It was too good. They have newly released movies as well as all my old favorites. It’s like being in movie heaven!!!
