A Recovery List

(I've had several people emailing me about a way to subscribe to the blog. If you'll scroll down, there's a spot on the bottom right side that lets you sign up for the posts to be delivered via email. If you're on a mobile device, this doesn't work so hop on your laptop desktop, sign up, and then they'll shop up via your email address each time I post.)

1. Brian surprised me with a steak for supper Thursday night (purchased from a local butcher shop that we typically can't afford). When I had my tonsils out last year, the doctor told us protein helps you heal faster. It was SO good, and I only felt slightly guilty that I was eating steak while they had hamburger soup.

2. Speaking of my tonsils, I clearly have issues with Superbowl weekend since in 2014 I had my tonsils out. Superbowl 2015 weekend involved a new port.

3. Thank you, Liz, for sharing the good stuff with me. Tylenol was not cutting it. Again, doctors, why do you not think this is painful enough to qualify for something stronger than Tylenol?

4. I had 19 Kids and Counting on TV yesterday as I was snoozing. What is it with the Duggar women (and men)? They are so sweet all. the. time. I mean, clearly, they have the joy of the Lord in their heart and I DO NOT.

5. You people sure do love to read about cancer and hospitals. My medical posts get 800-900 views while my everyday posts only get 200ish.

6. My Facebook feed is blowing up with tears over the Parenthood finale, but I have only watched 3 episodes this season. I'm putting it off because I know once I finish these last few episodes, the Braverman story will be finished forever.

7. If you're snowed in and need some good comfort food recipes, try these 2 soups. They were both delicious: Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup (the Parmesan biscuits to drop on top of the soup are easy and definitely worth the effort) and Pioneer Woman's Hamburger Soup (I left out the bell peppers).

8. I may not have slept during my procedure Thursday or Thursday night, but I have made up for it since then. I have slept, slept, and slept some more.

9. I wanted 10 things on the list, but I just don't have anything left to say.

10. Have a great weekend.

I had never heard of Parenthood, until yesterday. Really! So, I'm going to binge watch for the second time(first time was Doc Martin). So far, I'm loving Parenthood and wondering how I missed it!

Keep sleeping...good for you! As good as the steak. ;)

I want to give Brian a big hug! That’s *such* a perfect surprise!! (and I can personally vouch for the healing effects) That is the part of the list that made me smile widest, easily.

I’m off to look at those recipes as well… cause guess what?! We have a snow day today. Again.
