It would seem that I haven't had as much excitement as I'm supposed to. Today, I went to our local clinic because a wound on my foot wasn't healing after ten days, and was radiating red lines. That'll scare ya in a hurry, for sure. Turns out, though I don't have sepsis, I do have cellulitis, and have to stay quiet, foot elevated, taking antibiotics. I'm already bored, people. It's been four and a half hours. I don't the I'm going to be able to survive multiple days of this nonsense.
Has anyone else had to deal with something like this? I thought bed rest was way waaaay behind me after having the twins. It's this wacky role reversal, where monsters tell their mother, "Lay down! I mean it! And don't get up again!" And the Momma starts whining, " but I need a drink! I need to use the bathroom! I'm hungry!" I have to say, sometimes, I'm not thirsty. I'm not hungry. I just want to get up. Because I can.
I need reminders of how to entertain myself while being grounded.. er... on time out...oh, whatever it is. It sucks. Also, I will be totally throwing the doctor's orders to the wind tomorrow night, when the twinnies will be having their Kindergarten back to school night. I will again disregard medical advice Wednesday morning, for the first day of Kindergarten. And then I promise. I promise. I will stay down, foot elevated, watching everything on DVR, gaining weight from all the eating because I'm bored.
I have to give the fam credit. The first 4 hours has gone well. Dishes were done, the kitchen is kinda clean, the rest of the house ain't bad. But I shudder to think what will happen tomorrow, when dinner isn't already in the crock pot waiting to be eaten, the dishes aren't under control, and the house looks like a tornado went through it. Actually, it will have been three little tornados. And they are talented, people. Talented.
I'll keep y'all posted. After all.. I'll be here... Finding ways to entertain myself. Maybe it's time to start writing that book everyone is insisting will win me a Pulitzer. That could work.....
