It is Friday already.  This week absolutely flew by.  So it is time to let it all hang out folks.  Lets hear about the great things that happened and the not so great things that happened this week.  I am here to cheer and to sympathize if necessary.  No accomplishment or problem is too small.  I like to hear em all.  

Lets get to it...What are you ruminating on?

Hi, Jk2003 (may I call you Jk?) ;-) (2.00 / 13)
I'm proud this morning of actually getting myself out of the house and down to the neighborhood barbershop for a good short haircut. Now I won't need to have my cadre of stylists at beck-and-call while in the hospital (awaiting the throngs of visitors who will descend upon me like the proverbial locusts) - and my hair is so short that I won't need another haircut for weeks and weeks, after I'm able to get around again.

Meanwhile, my apartment is still a royal mess - but I've decided to do what little I can to remedy that, and leave the rest to the Universe to sort out. I can live with a certain amount of chaos when necessary.

My world is very small and self-absorbed at the moment, as should be obvious. And I suspect that I'm (not-very-effectively) masking a growing case of the pre-surgery jitters. Thanks for indulging me! :-)

Hi! (2.00 / 11)
You may call me anything you like but my name is Jen.  I don't blame you one little bit for either jitters or self-absorption at this point.  That may be my normal state but you have an excuse!  
Glad you got the hair taken care of.  I cut mine off into a sassy shag just yesterday.  I have finally given up the idea of long hair again.  I keep trying to grow it out then make it to about my shoulders then off it goes.  
We will all be hoping for as easy a recovery as is possible for you.   If I were you I would just want it to be done.  Only three more days are you get a whole new hip.  Pretty cool if you think about it.

LOL (2.00 / 12)
As JanF will gladly corroborate, a "sassy shag" would be JUST my style, even if I tend to wear my locks a bit shorter than that. ;-)

Yes, a brand-new hip IS pretty wondrous. Back in the olden days I'd just have to suffer with this awful limp for the rest of my days. I'm glad to live now, when I can have a titanium implant, which sounds so very 21st-century. Now if only I looked as good as Lee Majors, the Bionic Man. Har!

Thanks much for the kind words, Jen. And please, call me Scott or silks or silky or "Hey you." Whichever feels most comfortable. ;-)

Magic legs (2.00 / 11)
Like Lt. Dan from Forest Gump.

Inquiring minds want to know ... (2.00 / 11)
What time is your surgery? I will be sending you healing energy and lighting candles. And sleeping with the phone for a few days. ♥

As it so happens, (2.00 / 11)
...I just now got a phone call from the hospital, informing me that surgery has been rescheduled for noon on Tuesday, and I am to be there by 10AM. This is a huge relief because I was supposed to show up at 5:30AM, and I'm not at my best before dawn!

I'm trying to imagine the soonest I'll be coherent and feeling up to communicating, and I think it will be mid-to-late afternoon my time, but if I don't get word out until the next day I don't want anyone worrying. They've told me not to bring ANYTHING with me, but I'm thinking of sneaking my cellphone in a coat pocket. Otherwise I'd have to wait for someone to bring it to me later that day or the next morning.

[ Parent ]
Surgical schedules are notorious for changing. (2.00 / 9)
I have the entire day set aside to worry about you send you white light and energy. I'd feel better if I were right there and could glare at those who need it, but I'll settle for a fully charged phone in your pocket. :)

"Is that a fully charged phone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?" ;-p

I'm thinking a front pocket is not the best place to carry one. :)

could be a substitute for Viagara (2.00 / 9)
but I'm a girl, what do I know? ;)

[ Parent ]
I forgot to add two things. (2.00 / 9)
First, to thank you for the white light/energy! And also, yes, I was told this afternoon not to be surprised if I get another call on Monday changing the schedule again.

I'm ready to go with the flow, but I do hope they don't change it back to pre-dawn!

It's what friends do, Darlin. (2.00 / 10)
If the weather were milder I'd go up to the summit and face San Francisco.

How are you getting to the hospital?

[ Parent ]
I'll travel by taxi. (2.00 / 9)
It's less than ten minutes from my apartment to the hospital (I used to walk there all the time for appointments) and costs less than ten bucks. :-)

[ Parent ]
I also have some white light and energy ... (2.00 / 4)
The white light will be for your surgeons to guide them during your surgery and for the rest of the hospital staff so that they can SEE just how important you are to your friends ... and treat you accordingly.

I will be sending mine while traveling the (fingers crossed) snow free highways and byways. By 2pm RPT, I hope to be heading home from a travel day that will start at 5:30am.  

Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.

Thank you! (2.00 / 3)

silky forgive my ignorance but (2.00 / 4)
10am for a noon surgery leaves 2 hours to prep. that seems like an incredibly short amount of time for such a complicated surgery.

 

time...it seems to move so slowly until that day, when it doesn't.


[ Parent ]
I don't know. (2.00 / 4)
That's what they've told me. But I was also told not to be surprised if I got another call on Monday with a different schedule...

Hi, Jen! (2.00 / 11)
At last - a diary that didn't post at 4 AM my time!

My week was a mixed bag. I had to stop letting my cats have dry food because it's making one of them sick, so most of the week was spent opening cans. However, the change was good for himself, and now I can spot clean the carpets.

I'm dealing with a few health issues, but - BUT! - it snowed on Pikes Peak. And it's snowing right now. We desperately need gobs and gobs of it, but this is a good start.

How was  your week?

"Do your little bit of good where you are; it is those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world." ~ Desmond Tutu


Glad the diary timing works for you. (2.00 / 11)
What a great weekend, cleaning up cat puke.  I have been there - personally and professionally.

My week was good.  Even though I am a winter lover I have to admit with the two kids I am looking forward to spending more time outside.  These kids are a bit stir crazy and I am too.  Other than that my week was good thanks for asking.

Here is wishing feet of snow in the mountains.


[ Parent ]
Professionally? (2.00 / 10)
Do tell!

I am a vet (2.00 / 11)
Practiced full time for eight years, part time for three once my first child was born then when number two came along I shut it down for a while.  Currently I only work when my old clinic needs relief.

[ Parent ]
You're in Oklahoma, right? (2.00 / 10)
How did things turn out with your basement? I just remembered your diary about the big mess while trying to sell the house. I have a crawl space, but it doesn't present the same problems. I've never had to deal with a basement, but they're very common in Colorado, too.

[ Parent ]
I went to school in OK (2.00 / 9)
We live in the Chicago burbs now.  The basement is on the mend and the house is still for sale.  We have a nibble right now though, so we will see what happens...

[ Parent ]
thinking good thoughts (2.00 / 5)
for a quick 'n clean sale. My least favorite thing to do I think because I reserve the native Texan right to assert that no one wants to sell property-only buy it. Like the rancher who said "I don't want all the land, just that what touches mine,"

There's nothing like eavesdropping to show you that the world outside your head is different from the world inside your head.--Thornton Wilder

[ Parent ]
Thanks (2.00 / 5)
We made the mistake of looking at a house last week so now I have the added stress of losing a house I want if my house doesn't move quickly.   I knew it was a mistake but I just had to see it.

An early afternoon howdy to the moozog, how's the munching going? (2.00 / 1)
Just finished a brunch of oatmeal with cooked apples and cinnamon, yum. Luckily I like oatmeal, and it's good for blood sugar levels and cholesterol. So anyone with diabetes tendencies and high cholesterol, take note!

Despite the afternoon hour, I somehow posted this in the wrong thread! (2.00 / 1)
There was no alcohol in play, I swear it! This was supposed to be in the F Bomb thread, oops.
