Cut cuddle and be Cute

Amazing!

Narnia was amazing! I will not give it all away, but it was just amazing! I loved it a ton. The description was beautiful. The sound was real, so real Julio got scared of the animals.
This was an excellent way to decompress after this week. I still feel like someone took a battering ram to my back and shoulders and neck, but things will get better once my body recovers from the tension of the last few weeks.
Maybe I'll try to get to bed soon. Waiting for the cooling effect of the lidoderm to take full affect.
Time for Amitriptyline.
Hugs!

Saturday morning.

I don't even have to say that I went to Brewberries do I? I did okay with the street crossings even though I was exhausted. I ended up getting to bed around 1 or so. Then got woken up at 9 for a question about French from MOm. It is very very good she didn't ask for a translation because I would have said "It means leave me alone!" She didn't think I'd be sleeping until 9. I was. It's not totally her fault.
I'm rather sore, but the swelling is down slightly.
Other than that, I think I just want to sleep... a lot!
Hugs!

Book recommendation: Christmas Child by Max Lucado

I found this on
Audible.com.
It's entitled The Christmas Child. There appears, however, to be more than one book packaged together. It's by Maxx Lucado who happens to be one of my favorite authors. So far, I've only read the title selection, and it is absolutely excellent. There were sound effects which sometimes annoy me a lot, but they were well done in this case and didn't bother me. Definitely one of those stories that warms the heart. I highly recommend it. It's not too expensive either.
Hugs!

Wonderful evening mostly.

The evening started out with Julio shreading a paper bag (*cough*turd!). Little bugger. Then we went to a concert by
Katie McMahon
She was amazing! It was a beautiful relaxing way to end the day. My pain levels were good, I.E., there were only a few flares of pain, and those were manageable, meaning they didn't make it necissary to dig my nails into my palms, gasp in a sharp breath (I try not to do that, but it sometimes slips out), or in general focus on the pain only. That was helpful. I got my schedule off, so I hadn't taken my last pill of Lyrica, but that didn't matter. The only down spot in the night wqas some reactions to us and our dogs. I'll be trying to find out what to do/who to contact to make sure staff/volunteers are given a bit more training about sensitivity issues. Luckily, my friends don't judge my college by that experience.
The concert was excellent, if you are at all interested in Celtic music, takt Katie's music a listen. I was glad I did!
We ended the night with hot chocolate at Starbucks (Brewberries wasn't open).
Now, it's bedtime. Or will be soon. What a great evening!
Hugs!
