Just a quick check in. Life here is almost back to normal. My energy is slowly coming back. I even braved the Super Wal-Mart today. I don't care what you think about Wal-Mart - you can't beat their prices. It had been so long since my last visit, I needed one (OK, two) of everything. I literally left with two buggies full of stuff. In the process, I tested the new minivan's cargo capacity - it passed.
While, I am definitely still spending more time on the couch we are doing most of the usual things - even a recent trip to go Putt-Putt with the girls (see above). The only good thing out of all this medical stuff (other than getting cured, of course) is that Scott put all his work travel on hold. That joy is coming to end. He is probably gone for 1-2 days next week and definitely gone for 5 days the following week.
Jaley is still wearing panties most of the time. You notice I didn't claim she is potty trained - just that she is wearing panties. The mini rug cleaner is still getting quite a workout, but overall we are seeing the end of the diaper road in our family. It is a beautiful thing.
Sarah started a weekly science class. Her first class was Wednesday and they had a great time "charging" balloons to make their hair stand up. Yes, it's no secret. We are definitely hoping for a 2026 Ga Tech graduation for her.
In the end, I have decided that surgery really knocks ya for a loop. Surprise, surprise. My doc said it would take 4-6 weeks to fully recover. I am 3 1/2 weeks in, though I hate to admit it, I think she was right. I was much more in the 2 weeks is plenty mind set. However, it has been 9 days since my last medical "drama." Other than Advil (which I am actually taking for PMS), I am not taking any medicine. So it may be another couple of weeks until full speed, but I think I am on the downhill slope.

That is life in the stroller lane. Lots of love.
