The day after the day after...

First of all, it's Storm's birthday! Happy Birthday, Tormie! Oh....and did y'all know that he is going to be a daddy in April!!!?

So, today is the day after the day after my surgery. Yesterday, I felt pretty decent. I mean, this "pain" is nowhere NEAR the pain I get every month. But today, something is different. The pain still isn't that bad, but when I have monthly cramps, I can crunch up in a ball, punch myself in the stomach (not that I ever do that) or roll around and writhe in pain if I wanna.

Today I noticed that I got beat up pretty badly. I'm bruised and confused. Not really confused, but what else rhymes with bruised!? Amused? That, I am not. The pain isn't that horrible, but I can't really move very well, what with all the black and blue tender and puffy areas. It's ugly, I tell ya!

So, I sit here, swimming in the aftermath of Hurricane Vicodin, thinking of all the things I could be doing. I have umpteen thousand sewing projects to be finished, four or five rooms in this house that haven't been touched in a week, and I can't stop searching the internet for fun projects to start when we move.

If anyone wants to get me something for Christmas, feel free to get me spray paint.

I wanna do this and this....and this. Oh yeah, and this too.

And if those aren't enough, I'm wanting to start making aprons to add to our etsy store. Have I told you about that yet? I think these would sell too.

Anyhow, see how my mind goes and goes and goes....when my body can't!?

Glad to see you have not lost your sence of humor even when hurting.

You have WAYYYYY too much time on your hands if you can craft ALLL those objects.


BTW, the wiener in my blog will not walk across the cover but his sister will. She is fearless.

Craft On Girl!

hi rachel - glad you're hanging in there - when is your move? i wrote a card to you but i don't have your mailing address. i find that pain is always much worse on the second day and sometimes that will linger through the third day - but after that - it usually gets better so hang in there - and i am glad your mind is racing - that is usually a sign that you are able to just relax and when i relax - i have a million ideas and things to add to my to do list - so i think that is a great sign - but do take adavtage and relax and have people do things for you - you more than deserve it. you'll be up and flying around again before you know it :-) take care - kim

You are clearly not taking enough drugs because all you should be dreaming about are rainbows and ponies.

Suzanne said...

I'm glad you're feeling better. I was totally on the joysofhome blog this morning when I couldn't sleep! I want to make all of those too!!

Glad your still blogging while feeling stuck... at leat the rest of us don't have to suffer and miss out on your blog.

Surely you can create a product to help post-surgery victims?


Come on....think!

Becs said...

The day after the day after is always worse... AND especially coming off the "good" stuff. I hope your dad is still there.

ADORE the skirts and aprons.

Thanks for all the things I now want to do that I don't need to add to my evergrowing list.

I am still bummed I couldnt get the contributor thing to work, btw. I was already to post.

I am glad you are feeling better. The bruising sounds painful. Take it easy and let your body recover. I tried recovering too fast from C-section. So my advice it to relax and let someone else do the work!!
I love the craft ideas, what a great blog that was. What is the etsy store you talked about??

Baby Kry said...

So I am commenting again just to say I did it!! I made the top commenters!!!!

Heidi said...

Hey girl! Hope you are feeling better! Hang in there! I love all of your craft projects. I might just steal one of them!

Carissa Anne said...

I'm sorry you're so bruised and can't move. Is the fact that you have minimal pain a good thing? I'll continue to pray for your healing. I'm sure you'll be back up and about in NO time!

Carissa Anne said...

PS. Will you make me one of those little skirts?!!! :)

Tabitha Blue said...

Dang girl, you have a lot of products on your agenda... I can't do all that when I'm feeling fine!! Take some time and get better, I'm sure you'll be burnin' at both ends before you know it.


Came by way of a friends blog :)

Hey! I see you got the 3 column coding working. Hooray for you!

I put some pictures up today over at my blog!

Heather of the EO said...

I'm all upset because I'm telling myself lately that I CANNOT keep looking at new blogs. And I ABSOLUTELY cannot add any new ones to my reader...
BUT...
Um...
You said that your mind just goes and goes.... I love that.
And you also said "You just ROCK" and I'm pretty much known for my ability to drop "you ROCK the party" waaay too frequently. So I think I love you.
Is that scary?
Bye.

No more posting about crafts! You're gonna get me in TROUBLE! :op

KC said...

Rachel, I had no idea you were going through all of this stuff. I haven't had a lot of time on the internet lately. I hope you are feeling better. Thanks for the updates.

P.S. I LOVE those little skirts...Noe would definitely be a customer! What kind of store are you wanting to open?
