Day Three Has Been Grand. . . So Far

I woke up at 5:30 and tried to decide whether to go back to bed or not. I decided that I'd read a little, until the meds got far enough down my gullet. Well, that turned into an hour. Then I decided I wanted to make my way to Hell*Mart before the droves arrived. It wasn't too bad, but I had to park further away than I wanted to. I bought everything soft. Pudding, 'minner cheese, spongy white bread, potatoes. Well, I can't open my mouth very wide at this point, and chewing can be painful, so I wanted to go a little soft. I have grits and 'meal, as The Child calls oatmeal.

After Hell*Mart, I decided that the carnivore in me had to be sated, so I went by Krystal at 8:00 a.m. and ordered up three cheese Krystals. I smashed the buns down and scarfed them. Delicious. I'd only had a little bacon at Mrs. Beth's the day of the surgery. And I do like my meat. Anyway, I also got Supermom a gift certificate from Krystal. She really has enjoyed it being here. Then I traveled to Mrs. C.'s to replace the hair dryer I destroyed yesterday. It was one of those old Vidal Sassoon dryers circa 1978. I had it on high while drying my hair it decided it wanted to power down to low. Then I smelled some burniness (not to be confused with truthiness). I then decided that my hair didn't need to be THAT dry. Well, Mr. C. made the comment that he had had the dryer for over 25 years and he wanted it replaced. So, I saw a small one this morning at Hell*Mart and took it over.

I shared some coffee with Mrs. C. and she gave me my Christmas gift, which was overwhelming. It makes me a little nervous to try to figure what I need to get to complete her gift! She got me a mondo addidas bag for the gym and a gym gift certificate. Oh, and also an i-pod sleeve-holder thingie. All so neato! She's already the bomb for letting me convalesce at her home.

Then I trekked over to the Walgreen's again. I needed to pick up some things I thought they'd have at Hell*Mart, but didn't. Then I found some Burt's Bees stuff that I thought that my sis-in-law might enjoy. The lady today was number one. Not like the girl who kept my ice cream yesterday. So, for the moment, Walgreen's has been redeemed. Thank you, nice lady.

Then I took the car to the service place I go to and had them check fluids, etc. I need to have my tires rotated and my transmission fluid flushed. The dude says it's foaming. He also said that I had a little much in the oil. He asked if I had added any. Ha! That's what they're there for, right?

So, I got home and made some CDs for Momma and Snoopy. The rest of the time I've been cutting up and watching my personal porn, The Food Network. Elie Krieger and Guy Fieri ROCK my face off! The crunch from the onion rings sent me to another dimension.

That's been my awesome morning/early afternoon. Hope your day is equally satisfying.
