So like, I'm on stuff but I still have my brains about me. I think.
I'm reading the news and in the news is a story, supposedly a very shocking one, about this lady who drank two 2-liters of Diet Coke each day. Then she quit and it was a very big deal because of the health benefits of not drinking two 2-liters. Is this news?? Because my husband can drink, like, four of those in a normal day. Unless he is really thirsty; then it is more. I suppose next up there will be a story about a lady who eats a bag of chips for a snack. We will compare this nutritionally to the traditional candy bar snack.
Maybe the drugs are catching up with me that I don't think these are very exciting news stories. I am just sort of mellow.
Just for the record, today my diet has been two doses of Miralax (hasn't worked yet, TMI, since last Thursday, but having gut surgery will do that to you), a bowl of grapes (also hasn't worked), two rolls with butter, a bowl of soup and a bowl of taco mix (meat, lettuce, etc.). And three cups of coffee and a Diet Sunkist. I think I should be in the news for that. It is at least more interesting than two 2-liters of pop. BORING.
I am just awake enough to look at all the news stories on the computer and then nap for a bit. Then I wake up and look at more stories and catch up with my friends on facebook. And then I nap some more. I think I am sleeping more than I am awake. Maybe that is my job, just sitting around and healing.
D has been buzzing about and taking the children to the doctor. All the children are sick. Emperor has one of those deep hacking coughs that frighten me to death. I'd be afraid of turning inside out like an old sock if I started on a cough like that. My stitches would pop and that would be it for me. Woodjie has an ear infection. Rose has a fever. What a mess we are! Poor D; I have left him to deal with all of that plus the kitchen dishes. I am NOT going down there to catch what they have.
Also? I don't want to go down there because then I would be tempted to straighten things up my way and I am supposed to be resting.
Somebody write me a comment, would ya? I'm bored here. I will check comments between naps. :)
