Seriously though - I am on bed rest. I do nothing but lie here, watch TV, peruse the internet and eat [more on that in a second] - and I broke a nail. Not on the computer or changing the channel - I just clipped it on a blanket. I have some pretty strong nails. I am still trying to figure it out.
As to the food? You WANT to be me. You do. I have consumed, in no particular order, the following:
- Homemade banana nut muffins, brownie bites and chocolate peanut butter & white chip cookies, maple pecan scones and corn muffins
- Yummy bologna and PB&J sandwiches on wheat bread with clementines for lunch
- Baked salmon, sauteed zucchini & squash with brown rice
- Chicken and dumplings
- Senate bean soup
The last three meals put me in a coma I was so full. Something about eating in bed that just makes me eat more [boredom?] and then all of a sudden I am asleep. I actually fell asleep last night half way through Chicken & Dumplings. When I woke up I was sad it was gone [I have elves that clean up after me too!]. But the lemon sorbet was a nice palate cleanser at 11:30 pm.
I have to say bedrest does suck - and I am really tired of being in pain [True story: I have a converstation with myself everytime I get up to go to the potty - "Do you REALLY have to pee Skippy, because you know this is going to hurt walking, right?" It is amazing how often I don't get up. If that is TMI I apologize but I really don't want to stand up, hee...but it is only a couple of steps, so okay. I just can't wait to get back to bed and lie flat]
I don't want sympathy, honestly - life happens and we deal, right? And I have to admit I have it pretty damn good - the room service is amazing - I name it and it magically appears - I have all the company and entertainment I need. In fact I wish the dogs didn't want to keep me company so much - Spot has to touch me at all times [which annoys me and it hurts] and there is nothing conducive to a 110 lb Chessie wanting to snuggle, which he does, in my bed - my poor pups - they miss their Mommy. "Where'd da Momma go and why'd she in da' bed witout us?" This is the conversation I know is going on outside my door between those two.
Did I mention how bored I am?
There ya' go Tadpoles - my tales of bed rest. Monday can't come soon enough.
Oh, and Amy? We [yeah, we! HA! right...I mean they] are making Sarah's favorite dish tomorrow - the Pasta Fagiole - click the link for Amy's cute pics and an AWESOME recipe - mmmmmmmm.
PS: Thanks for the comments on the last post - I knew I wasn't the only one who is just fed up with her and the whole circus surrounding them. When is TLC/People magazine going to get a clue?
