Not so bad

It wasn't as bad as I was anticipating. The surgery was quick and I slept most of the following two days. (Mike's theory was that I was trying to catch up on all the sleep I've missed in the last year or so, when the carpal tunnel numbness woke me up three or four times a night.) At any rate, it's over and I'm ready to get on with it! Mike says I don't make a good invalid, which I will take as a compliment (though I'm pretty sure that's not how he meant it). And thanks to all of you for all the good wishes. One down and one more to go (though not for several months).

I'm enjoying my quiet time at home this week. I've been thinking about how I would like my life to be in the coming year. I'm going adopt my friend Lindy's idea and pick a word for the goal I want to achieve (definitely not a resolution-that's doomed to failure from the get-go). Right now there are several words that appeal to me: balance for one and maybe living a healthier life. How about you? Do you have goals for the coming year?


  1. I'm afraid to make resolutions or goals or even a to-do list for 2011, as I rarely follow through! I even have an agenda typed on my best friend (computer) but struggle to get through even the simple ones. Oh, well, I'll just fall back on Mark Twain's advice: "Never put off 'til tomorrow what you can do day after tomorrow just as well."

  2. Glad to read that you are now feeling great and ready to think about the upcoming New Year. I like the quote of Mark Twain's by Mom L! Maybe that will be my mantra for 20ll :-)

  3. I'm glad your surgery went well.
    For me, the new year always brings my birthday (Jan 2) and this year I am turning 50 so that kind of sucks! How did I get this old???

  4. I don't like to constantly fail at my resolutions, so I haven't made any for the past few years. This year, though, my word is simplification. I need to simplify my life in so many areas. I think I can do that one.

  5. I hope to post my 2011 Word of the Year shortly... I'm narrowing it down! I have enjoyed following this track the past few years as I nearly always fail at resolutions by the 3rd week of January!
    Glad all went well with your surgery, Dianne!
