It’s been a not really that pleasant day. On the plus side, I slept in the bed last night and managed to sleep all night through until 5:30. On the minus side, the laptop from work isn’t working for me, and the guys in our IT (outsourced, naturally) opened up a ticket that apparently still hasn’t been worked. My knee exercises made me cry today, but I’m on the emotional side right now anyway.
It doesn’t seem to matter how well prepared you are for a procedure like this. The shock of the pain afterward can still be startling. And every time I get up from a seated position, it takes a moment to gear up for the momentary pain that will pass after I’ve taken a few steps. Our house is really small, so once an hour I cruise around our miniscule living room and down the hall, where I turn around and repeat. I can now do that without getting breathless, and can even go to the bathroom and back without getting breathless, which is nice.
Joe still hasn’t been given an assignment, so he’s even more stir-crazy than I am. The house is a disaster zone. I’d love it if someone would come over and clean my house and wash a couple of loads of laundry, and then sit down and play stupid games with me. I’m so damned lonely right now. And as I type that the tears well up again. This pity party needs to end.
