***The last week has been a whirlwind of "not about me". That shit's tiring! My kids have been bathed, fed (I'm almost 100% sure), cared for properly (not necessarily by me), and present at school and practices. My house is spotless, laundry is done (what I lack in parenting, I made up in cleanliness). My husband has had his broth and jello ordered promptly (by me) whenever he desired. His anxieties were quelled by my
***I'm tired, I have a sore throat, and have resorted to healing myself by emotional eating of Halloween candy, ice cream and good old comfort foods. Great! My husband comes home 20lbs lighter and I have gained 20 lbs!
*** My husband just had surgery, but why do I feel like I have been hit by a truck?
*** The husband was released from the hospital yesterday- exactly 7 hours after surgery. It hurts to sit, it hurts to lay down, my driving(10mph) was erratic and irritated his incision! He woke me up 6 times throughout the night INSISTING he was BURNING UP with a fever. He had 101 and that was normal for after surgery, but he's still quite confident that there is water in his lungs, blood clots and that they must have left a suture in his abdomen cavity causing an infection. Hypochondria, surgery and an early release from the hospital- NOT A GOOD COMBINATION- GOD HELP ME!!!
*** He won't take the Percocet prescribed for him because he "doesn't like the feeling" and he's keeping a close eye on me and his inventory. I swear at the Wallgreens pharmacy drive thru he said "you stay away from my percocet." But now that it's just going to waste...!!!
***Although there has not been a lot of "me" time, I have had a little time to blog (when I should be taking advantage of free moments for napping) and skim some of my favorite blogs. I have been fairly current on my reading, but often too tired to comment.
***I have also become somewhat philosophical in my sleep deprived state. Many of the blogs I've read have touched on politics as of late, and who can blame them, with the election hangovers, it's still on many minds. I have learned that I am right in tune with some of my bloggy friends and on a completely different hemisphere as some. Don't hold that against me- I won't for you.
***I have come to a realization. My name is Tena and I am a liberal.
I have recently discovered my gay African- American inner self. I'm not gay or black, but from all the tears and emotions stirred up this week from the election, I thought I was and I think I should be considered honorable mention.
