I never thought I'd say I was sick of my bed..
|I've been stuck in bed with my feet up and a heating pad on my tummy for the past few days. Yes, I am NOT following doctor's orders and I am sitting at my PC right this minute. But lemme just tell you. A sentence of being imprisoned in bed for even 24 hours is way toooo hard to deal with. 72 hours and I'm going absolutely batshit crazy. I can not read another book, I can not talk on the phone for another minute. I will poke someone's eye out with my number 2 pencil if I am forced to do yet another puzzle. So I walk across the hallway to the office and sit with my feet up on the couch and play a lil online canasta, check my e-mail and do a lil surfing.. which brings me to this post. I found an incredibly funny and (for me) completely wonderous fairly new blog. It's not even a foodie blog.. it's a personal blog written by a gal who is originally from Texas but now lives in Naples, Italy. She did not deny her dream. She had visited Italy a few times and fell in love with it and knew she had to live there. So she upped and moved. Her journal describes what life in Italy is like compared to life in the states. She's fantastically funny and has a great gift in describing what she's feeling, seeing, tasting or doing. Oh.. and she takes pictures so you can see some of the beauty that she is seeing. Did I mention that a lot of those pictures include her boyfriend, Gennaro? Okay well, I don't speak Italian, but Gennaro must mean, "George Clooney clone" in Italian. *swoon*|
If you'd like some funny, make you feel all melty/gooey, good reading.. check out Tracie and her adventures in Naples at My Life Italian. My recommendation is starting from her first post back in January and reading through the whole blog. The last month or so is sparsely posted as she found a job and life took over her blogging time.. but up until then, it's a great read. =)
Okay back to me now!! *cheesy grin* I haven't cooked, due to my prison sentence, but Hubbs made a "beer can chicken" yesterday. I'm happy to say it was a complete disaster. (Only because of the giggling and fun making we both got caught up in during the process of making this chicken he had to try and then in the less than fantastic results while eating said chicken.) I'll post about it another time when I can sit longer.
Also, I don't mean to be mysterious about what ails me.. I, apparently, over exerted myself while helping Hubbs bend some metal at work on Thursday.. I guess there are some abdominal muscles, that are easily aggravated since the hysterectomy, that I shouldn't f*ck with. As if I knew I was using these muscles?? And I pulled something.. or rubbed something the wrong way.. I dunno.. doc wasn't toooo concerned, but because of severe cramping and a couple other icky factors, she's sentenced me to bed rest. Some of the icky factors are going away but the cramping is still excruciating, so even though I'm a horrible patient (always have been, always will be) and am being naughty by sitting at my PC, I shouldn't stay here long.. so I'm off! Back to bed. Gah.
