2 1/2 weeks. that’s how long it’s been since I had knee surgery and I haven’t been able to drive. 2 1/2 weeks. That’s how long I’ve been sitting on a couch or a bed with ice on my knee. 1 week. That’s how long I’ve been dealing with sick kids. 1 1/2 weeks. About the time I started to feel like I might lose it. And my husband, my poor dear husband. I hear him downstairs trying to deal with three boys and I just can’t help him, so I just yell for someone to come upstairs and shut the door for me. And since I have to put this monster brace on every time I get up, there is a lot more yelling now. But let’s be honest. I’m Italian so that’s not much different than every other day. So this blog is really about nothing. A Seinfeld blog if you will. Other than what I’ve done for excitement in the past two and half weeks. Probably the most exciting thing that happened was that Louie turned six. We had actual guests over that night. It was fantastic. Kids ran around and played and screamed, I drank a beer and laughed. By the end of a few hours I felt like my leg was going to fall off. So that was that. The next day as I laid in bed Rex decided that it would be a good idea to jump on my newly reconstructed knee. That’s put me back just a little 😫. But Probably one of the main highlights of my time off was the series finale of Sons of Anarchy! WOW! I watched it and then read article after article about the show because it was soaked with symbolism. I kept learning new things. That put my excitement level at an all time high. So there was that. I also got my new iPhone 6. That was a great treat. I think Rich went and got it for me because I kept crying. Post surgical blues. I’m pretty sure Its what happens when your stuck in the house, can’t drive, are on painkillers and the most exciting thing of your week is waiting on your new iPhone because your contract is up. I think he just got tired of hearing me cry about everything!! It shut me up for a day or so. I also did way too much online shopping, more than I care to admit, but that will come out of the closet real soon. OH! And I got to finally see Anchorman 2 last night. I can’t believe I didn’t get to see that gem sooner (cue the sarcasm). And how can I forget that my kids snooped through the closet and found some of their Christmas presents (“who is that for?”) grrr..How will I explain that? Santa dropped them off early? Ugh. I’m going to be a mean mom and make one of those videos from Santa where he will tell you if you are on the naughty or nice list and I will have Santa tell them that they are on the naughty list. I don’t care if that makes me a witch, but they have been naughty! So I want to thank you my fantastic husband. You have been my rock for the past 2 1/2 weeks. You have kept us all together and I hope I can repay the favor to you one day. It’s good to know that the people that love you are there for you when you need them the most. Even though my kids have been little devils, I know I’m truly blessed. And I guarantee there will come a day in the future that I am going to miss sitting around watching 80s movies. I can guarantee it.
Housebound and losing it!
