Lazy Day

Today I am being very lazy.

That is not an easy concept for me. Oh, I know that on occasion I can be a world class couch potato, but usually I need to be doing something. I think my mother taught me that. I always wondered why she never sat still. She could not enjoy a full television show because she was always folding laundry or getting up to do something. Now, I realize that part of the reason she did that is because I WAS lazy back then, but the main reason was because she felt the need to be productive and to provide for her family.

I do not think I rate up there with her, but I usually pride my self in multi-tasking. It makes me feel good to know that I have the washer, dryer, dish-washer, stove, oven, crock-pot, and any other small appliance going all at the same time. Plus, at that very moment I am folding clothes with one hand, dusting with the other, and mopping with my feet. Okay, that is not really the case, but I do like to be doing something.

Today, however, I am not doing anything. Quite the contrary, I am doing nada, zilch, zero.

It is 10:30 and my greatest accomplishment today is that I am dressed. I even thought hard about that one. I guess the world will still turn if I cease to move much today.

That's exactly what you should be doing. After each of my surgeries I give myself about 48 hours of absolutely nothing to do, and the surgeries I've been having are nothing compared to what you had done. My last major surgery was back in '97 when Prophet was born and I had a bowel resection. It took a long time to recoup from that one. Be easy on yourself and give it time. I'm anxious to see you this weekend at the shower (if you're up to coming).
