The one where I am on drugs

I got my tonsils out over a week ago. It is not as bad as everyone told me it would be as long as I remember to take my high powered-almost-morphine drugs every couple of hours. Davey has taken two weeks off of work to be with me and take care of the girls, because he is awesome and secretly wants to be an at-home-Dad.

Even eight days into this there really isn't that much improvement, and that is somewhat discouraging. The worst thing is that my girls know that I'm here, but don't understand why I am always asleep or why they can't Karate Chop my neck or why I can't speak most of the time. Basically, I am communicating with them in a language where we can find common ground: The language of Candy.

Candy is the perfect way to tell your child both that you love them, and also to go away before mama changes her mind. It is working perfectly and Easter really a great way to restock.

Note to self: Make dental appointments next week to ensure that their teeth did not, contrary to what I have threatened, actually "rot out of your fool head for not brushing your teeth."

That is crazy I got my tonsils out just over a week ago too. I was off the crazy meds in a few days though. I hope you start to feel better soon.

I had mine out the 8th, so I guess that was more then a week ago. I got mine done at St. Vincents. This is my first day back to the computer too, but I went out a on Friday last week and did some stuff. Then again on Sunday. I only have 1 kid so that is probably a big difference too.
