Re: Pre-op thoughts on post-op pampering

Well, I started my pampering early. Went and got the haircut I've been wanting for months, but was too afraid to cut my long hair off. Other than that...I'm going to allow myself to sleep when I feel like it. One of my co-workers invited me to her house to go through her movies so I will pick a bunch out to "borrow" while I'm home recovering.

Re: Pre-op thoughts on post-op pampering

My pampering is beginning a bit early, too. My wife and I finished the Christmas shopping today, had a nice lunch out and spent the evening with my brother and his family. Tomorrow, she's making me potatoes anna and coconut sorbet. We're also having a cord of wood delivered tomorrow, so I'll be all set for fires as soon as I'm not too gorked to light one!

I plan on hitting the craft store for a few skiens of yarn so I can crochet me a new blanket. I've got a couple already started that I should have finished before then. I'll have a lot of my Christmas gifts made by the time all is said and done.

DH = dear husband (or could also be darned husband if you're annoyed with him LOL)

DD = dear daughter
DS = dear son/sister

Re: Pre-op thoughts on post-op pampering

Did I mention I got the Netflix App on my iPad and I have set up several television series that I've been meaning to watch, as well as some good movies? I can watch them from anywhere on the iPad or on the big TV in the living room, if I feel up to coming down stairs or need to rest in the recliner vs. the bed.

Re: Pre-op thoughts on post-op pampering

Netflix on the iPad is GENIUS.

My wife exchanged the bookshelves I was using as a bedside table with an actual bedside table, so things are organized and within easy read. We're cleaning out a chest height shelf in the refrigerator this evening, too, so I can find things easily.

I still need to do a few more touch-ups on the bathroom and a nice, long vacuum of everything...
