...some of the dumbest things i did:

1) 2 days post..attending a kids birthday party (tons of kids there! bouncing off the walls...I was glad when my daughter drove me home and deposited me on my sofa!

2) one week post - went to the mall - bought a phone at a kiosk against my better judgement for ($150!) just because I needed to hurry up and get done so i could find a bench to sit down! boy, those salesguys were thrilled..

3) about a week post - I had no 7up and was nauseaus due to the vikadin, and noone to call for help, so I had a pizza delivered for $18 just so I could get some 7up delivered (couldnt eat the pizza till the next day!)

4) 4 weeks post - did a major overhaul of my garage, including a ladder and lifting stuff into the rafters - bad very BAD! - boy was I sore...was on the couch for days after!

what a great questions! sure brings back memories...Im now 8 months post and no ill effects due to my not-so-smart shenanigins

I know, but at least at work I get to sit at a desk instead of running after 2 kids and taking care of the house. It's almost better for me. Thank you for the prayers.
