Today I woke up exhausted!! Not sure if it's because JieJie was in bed with us and was so excited about getting up and making Blueberry Buckle (see Feed-the-Flap recipes) for her Daddy's Birthday Breakfast. So for a couple of hours I just kept telling her it would be a few minutes, so finally, around 6am we were up and cooking in the kitchen. Then while the Blueberry Buckle was cooking, we headed upstairs with breakfast in bed for Daddy. After all that I really was exhausted. Hmmmm, seems some days I can do alot and others I can barely get out of bed. Not sure if that's just me or part of the recovery process.
Now it's 10am and I feeling a bit more normal and energetic. It's Mike's birthday and in all the pre-planning that I did before surgery I neglected to pre-buy birthday gifts. So, now we are all headed out to do some birthday shopping with the guest of honor. I do plan to make him an apple pie and Taco Soup (also under Feed-the-Flap recipes) for dinner. That's probably all I will be up for, but on my list is making chocolates for my Aunt, cleaning the house, the basement, preparing for a yard sale, paying bills, organizing finances, tinkering with my work website, cleaning out the garage, redoing the girls' rooms, dejunking, making Shutterfly books, doing MeiMei's lifebook and video.....well you get the picture.
