As the old song goes, what a difference a day makes. I don't know when the injection sites will start hurting, but they haven't yet, and the stitches don't bother me at all. I can't believe I will get away with having two molars extracted and only need 2 Advil for pain.
The laundry was building up so I'm trying to do most of it, if not all, today. The sun is shining but it's only 55F and there is a strong wind blowing. As much as I dislike using a dryer I decided to make it a bit easier on myself. At least I've gotten the 2 sets of summer sheets clean and on the shelf waiting for next spring! Two more loads to go and I'm finished for a while.
I managed to eat some cooked cereal and a banana this morning but that is only my normal "first breakfast". I'm trying to figure out what I want for lunch and mashed potatoes topped with cheddar sounds good, although the potatoes I have on hand are better for other uses than for mashing. I am not going to start complaining at this stage of the game, as I'll probably have much more complaining to do after a week or so.
Ok, so I stopped writing long enough to peel, cook, mash, and eat a whole lot of mashed potatoes with lots of cheddar! I'm reminded of when my 4th younger brother played high school football with Moeller High School in Cincinnati (along with John Boehner I might add). A high school junior playing football simply cannot eat enough to satisfy and fill him up, and I probably was not close to what he could put away, but I can say I thought I was making enough for several meals. All gone and sooo good!
I'll be taking the last loads over to dry them in just a few minutes and the thought occurred to me that I haven't even formed the word "nap" in my mind or on my lips all day long. I'm so grateful for feeling like doing anything at all, especially the laundry, so maybe I should reward myself!
