under the knife today

This will be me after my foot surgery at 2:15pm this afternoon...
Except that I won't be quite that cute, I refuse to get a pink cast and I will be pretty doped up so who knows what kind of language will be spilling out of this mouth.  I'm sure I won't be so lucky as to pass out like this sweet kitten.  I will instead talk all kinds of craziness and embarrass myself.
The surgeon has nerve damage to repair and he is also hoping to fix my tendon.  Here's to hoping it's successful!

So where will this week of recovery take me?  And what will I be doing?

- I will be staying out of town with my aforementioned 95 year old grandmother.  So I will be watching Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Judge shows and who knows what else.  Maybe I can talk her into a little Shark Week to switch things up?
- I will be listening to said grandmother's stories about our family and my dad while laying on the oldest but most comfortable sofa EVER.
- I will hopefully be eating yummy sandwiches made out of the tomatoes in her garden.
- I will be making friendship bracelets.  Because I will be bored.
- I will have my ipad so I will be stalking you all.  Because like I said before, I will be bored.
- I will be re-reading Message from Nam, an old Danielle Steel book that was my favorite back in high school.  Not sure why I've decided to pick it back up and read it but I hope it doesn't disappoint!
- I will be driving my brother and all of my childhood friends nuts by begging them to come entertain me.
- I will be missing Mr Chance, as I will have to leave him behind in Charleston for the week.  The Moo will be traveling with me.

Sound good to you all?  I have scheduled a couple posts and have a guest post coming so that you won't forget about me!  Have a great Tuesday!
