Unfortunately, this first week of freedom from the workplace hasn't been that free. Tomorrow morning before the sun even shows its shiny face, I will be headed to the hospital for surgery. From my consultation with my surgeon, I've learned that this should be an easy, speedy process. I am having my final reconstruction surgery, and I am very excited - not because I will have a totally different "look", but because I should have a much more comfortable feel.
This week, in preparation for being out of commission for a few days, I've been running errands and doing chores like you wouldn't believe. I've barely sat down, well, except for the 4 hours that I spent at the doctor's office yesterday.
This morning my husband said, "You should just relax and take it easy today." I've recently discovered that I have NO idea how to relax when I am at home. I am constantly flitting about doing one chore after another, only to find that when I'm done, it's time to redo the ones that I did in the beginning. It's a vicious, ceaseless cycle!
In order for me to truly sit down and take a breather, I have to be away from my home. Isn't that ridiculous!?!
Do any of you have this same disease? How do you overcome it?
