best thing i did for myself!

HI all ladies in waiting, i am gearing up for surgery tues, and the waiting has been killing me!!! I was really bored this morning and it seemed like i was watching seconds tick by. So i decided that a little pampering was in order, i has a nice long bath, and when i came out, i did a facial, hair treatment, lathered up in my fav lotion, threw on comfy terry cloth robe, did a manicure and pedicure, lit my fav candle, drank some herbal tea, had soft music playing, and just vegged. I have been very stressed all weekend from worrying about surgery, i finally calmed down enough to sleep for 3 hours without waking up, i have barely been sleeping, got up 6 times last night to pee, cant wait for the bladder to be fixed! it was great to do something nice for myself, i would have waited till tommorow to do this, but busy day getting everything ready for kids to go stay with friend, and getting bills paid, etc. But if you have the chance before your surgery to do this, it really helps to destress!
hugs to all, thanks for letting me share!

Way to go Lynn!
Taking care of yourself is the best thing you can do and it sounds like it was a mahvelous time! The days leading up to our surgery can indeed be super stressful, it is good to step back and relax. All the best to you on Tuesday!
