To be perfectly honest, I'd pretty much given up on hoping that I'd make it home between operation the first and operation the second. (Yes, there’s indeed another one coming, on the 4th of August to be precise, and no, I didn't know about it until I was already in the hospital - feel free to picture me grinding my teeth here.) But what do you know, I'm home now and I've got the amazing amount of ten days to stay here before someone'll start poking me with sharp objects again. *snorts* Seriously, though, I'm not quite that bitter. I mean, ok, there's this foul-mouthed part of me that just won't shut its gob and keeps on being all nasty and cynical, but really, above all else I feel like doing the dance of home sweet home right now. Oh how I've missed sleeping in my own bed, wearing my own clothes (hated the pink hospital garb not to mention the one size fits all socks, yuck!) and not having to share the toilet with anybody! And then there’s the big plus of having a computer within reach all the time. O' sweet computer of mine - we must never be apart again! LOL! My dogs are still at my parents' place, though, because I'm not really up to taking care of them yet. Actually, I'm kinda useless in general at the moment. Can't really bend down, can't lift things, can only sit upright for 20 minutes, tops, at a stretch, and sleeping is a bit of a problem too. Narrows one's activities quite drastically down, that does. But then again it is possible to have quite a few 20 minute computer usage sessions over a day even if I had to rest between them. Plus this is home, I’m home and it’s all good.
I realize I’m really really out of the loop with everything. I’m going to try my best and catch up with everyone, but despite of my previous boasting my computer time’s kinda limited with all those stupid restrictions, er, restricting me and, to be honest, I still get tired pretty easily. Also, I’ve got this one birthday present manip thingy in progress that I’d really like to finish before the 4th and I seem to be sorta rusty not to mention slow. But I'll be around as much as I can, and man, I can barely wait to see what everyone's been up to lately! I've really missed you guys and I want you to know that your kind words and lovely messages have meant the world to me! Thank you ever so much from the bottom of my heart! *group hugs you all, once again*
Thought I should post something fun, too, and not just my sleeping pill substitutive blabberings. And since I haven't been able to create anything myself in a good while here's a little Spuffy comic clip instead. I came across this while going through my very badly organized picture files and it made me smile. If any of you happen to know the name of the comic this is from and/or if there's any way to catch hold of it I'd really appreciate the info. :)
