I spent the day, today, recuperating.
Last night, daughter insisted that I took a Tylenol before I went to sleep, so I took one, more for her peace of mind than anything else. She stayed up till 4:00 a.m., because she was nervous that I might get sick in the night and she might not hear me. But I slept right through until about 10:30 a.m. There was no pain, just a little soreness where the port had been.
I was having a cup of coffee and checking my emails when friend R called to say she woke up with a bad headache and a runny nose. We agreed that she shouldn't visit me, today. She said she'll try to come tomorrow.
I've spent a quiet, relaxed day, today. I really didn't do anything, other than respond to comments on my blog, comment on a few blogs, and play online (sudoku, mahjong, etc.). I called the temple to let the monks know that the surgery went well.
Lunch was a little more of the leftover Thai food. Later, in the afternoon, I took a nap on the sofa. When I woke up, daughter made me a cup of tea.
Later, in the evening, I recooked the curried pork chops and made it into a curry for dinner. I had it with a warmed up tortilla; daughter had it with rice and cabbage. I indulged in a little chocolate, afterwards (one Hershey's mint chocolate Kiss). The sink is full of dirty dishes, but I've been told not to wash them! I'll probably run the dishwasher, tomorrow.
Daughter and I have been spending a relaxed evening, watching ice skating. She also received her lease renewal to sign, so she's reading through it. The new lease specifically states that the apartment is unfurnished, so we assume that the furniture that came with the apartment, originally, now belong to her! In the prior lease, internet connection was included in the rent, but apparently, it is no longer included (the original lease included cable TV, as well, but that was dropped the last time the lease was renewed). Daughter is now wondering whether it is worth it to renew the lease or to look for another place! Oh, dear! Here we go again!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Not being in any pain or discomfort
- A day of relaxation and recuperation
- Daughter being home with me
- Afternoon naps
- A sunny, warm day
No major plans for tomorrow, other than doing the dishes and maybe a visit from friend R.
How was your Saturday? What have you planned for Sunday?
