The War on Drugs

I would love to write more that just a smattering of ideas that randomly come through my mind, but I'm still heavily medicated, so smattering, partial ideas is really all I get right now. I'm slowly trying to wean back on the pain meds, but my tummy is a bit tender and my back is a bit sore. And sometimes, "a bit" is "a lot". But the drugs are driving me crazy, because I can't think well. Seriously, I don't know how people get addicted to pain meds. I mean, sure, it gets rid of pain, but it makes my brain feel like a roller coaster ride that I barely remember. I guess if you like to be dizzy and stupid, then being addicted would be awesome.

I've been renting and watching "Friends". I'm on Season 3. It's like comfort food.

I'm in love with "Glee". After the first 5 minutes of the first episode, I was hooked. Go watch it! (Follow my link-it takes you to Hulu, which has some of the full episodes).

Before my surgery my fam got some pics taken down by the river by Megan Blethen. They turned out really well! This one is one of my favorites. I'm just having a hard time deciding which ones I want, and in what sizes. And since my brain is SO good at concentrating right now...grrr. Go take a look!

I'm glad that my kids already have Halloween costumes.

I love naps.

The end.

LOL Nat! I'm so sorry that you're still having to take the pain meds. I'm such a baby when it comes to pain so I would probably be on them for like a year! LOL I don't know how anyone gets hooked on them either. They really don't sound that fun:P

I'm so glad you like your pictures! That on of the kids by the river is totally cute! I love that Ivy is on the grass, but the boys are all on the railing:) CUTE kids!!

I hope you etting feeling better fast!

I actually saw your pics the other day while looking on her site for prices. They are so stinkin cute. I liked the same one as you, and the one of Pete crouching down by Ivy is just precious. I am sorry that you still are in pain. Get better soon.

Nat, it is really to bad we don't live closer to eachother. I am the proud owner of all ten seasons of Friends. And you could have borrowed them all. Not all at the same time though, you have to leave me at least one season for me to watch as I am addicted!:) Get better!

Super Mom said...

Sorry to hear that you are still hurting. Your family pictures are great! Tough decision to pick one, but they are all so good. Yea for Halloween costumes and naps!

Karlenn said...

Oh, those pics that Megan took are so adorable. I would buy almost every single one, if it was me. :) I'll have to have her do my kids' pics at that spot next year. I'm addicted to Megan's pictures. :) I love the end of this post. Major random thoughts. I'm glad my kids have Halloween costumes. I also love naps. :) Yeah, I've never wanted to experiment with drugs, because I don't like not feeling in control of myself. I know what you're talking about there. I'm glad you're doing okay. If you are still feeling good Monday, come with me to hang out with Kort.

Dude! Don't fight it! Give in to the meds and enjoy the fuzziness for a bit longer. You are going to feel much better and be a lot happier if you let yourself veg out and rest for a while.

But that doesn't mean you should take a rest from posting. No sir ree. I'm pretty sure that blogging is good for speedy physical recoverys, so keep the cute posts coming!
