I can't tell you how many times I've uttered the phrase, "I just really need a week alone in the house."
Which clearly falls in the category of "be careful what you wish for."
Because a random week alone comes at a price.
Without getting into the nitty gritty details of my intenstines, I'll say it's been a rough couple of months culminating in my gallbladder no longer being part of my body organ inventory and me going on 29 days sans coffee.
The latter being more traumatic to me than the actual removal of a body part.
I. really. miss. coffee!
I had surgery last Thursday and am "recovering" at home.
And by recovering, I mean partaking in painkiller-induced online shopping sprees (bathing suits in January in New England? Makes sense to this girl).
I'm going back to the doctor on Friday and am hoping to be cleared to return to work on Monday.
Because that's as far as my sub plans go.
And let me tell you, planning for an extended sub is no fun at all. But, I do have some pics and a blog post in the works for those of you who may find yourself in a similar situation down the road.
Luckily I lined up an awesome sub and I have a wonderful classroom aide this year so I have peace of mind that all will be well while I'm gone.
I'm not sure how this week will turn out. I was hopeful that the extended couch stay would result in having a chance to chip away at my blog and product to do list, but the past few days have actually found me falling behind. I'm feeling better each day. My kids are going back to school tomorrow so the house will be quiet.
Hopefully you'll be hearing lots more from me soon.
I hope all y'all who are off today are enjoying the l-o-n-g weekend. xoxo Jodi
