2nd day post op update

I’m home resting in my CCC and watching exceptionally bad TV. A new low – at present I’m catching up on behind the scenes footage of M and my fave go-to show “Naked & Afraid”. I’m also fired up for Jenni Garth and Tori Spelling’s new series which debuts tonight “Mystery Girls.” Set your DVRs!

5th night free

Watch out people, I’ve nearly hit the ultimate sapphire level at CPMC. They punch my card everytime I come in for surgery. 5 surgeries = an adorbs clear plastic title clutch with swag (with ear plus, face mask and Chapstick!)  I’ve heard a rumor that at 25 they give you a pony! Hello old friend

the countdown is on

Funny thing while I’ve been counting down the days until my exchange surgery (June 23rd), the little people in my family have been counting down until the last day of school.  Both share the same nervous anticipation and dreaded excitement.

Miss me?

Yep, it’s been awhile and I’ve had a whirlwind spring.

mother’s day gratitude

Hallmark cards, potpourri, home-made macaroni necklaces aside, Mother’s Day is a sweet holiday and a time to reflect. For many of my close personal friends – and my own mother included – Mother’s Day is a bittersweet reminder that they no longer have their mothers present in their daily lives. As it happens my Nana’s

full confession

Time to come clean. I’ve been doing more than my fair share of online shopping under the influence (OSUI). Last week the day after my surgery, I had trouble sleeping, and I was up until 5am. What’s a gal to do after she’s popped a few “Perkies” while she waits for sleep to overtake her?

speaking of Groundhog Day

Lather, rinse, repeat. My days are blurring into carbon copies of the next. I’m not complaining, not at all. Like I’ve said before, I come from a long line of “resters” and I can hang in my CCC like the best of them. But it’s funny to lose track of days just the same. [See,
