I think today I learnt that I need to spend more time in bed.

Bed's still not quite at the bored to tears stage, and I actually slept more than I expected to. My pain levels are nicely low too, so I guess Bed and I are going to be even better friends for another day or so.

I had a rather awesome dream where I was a pilot of a ship. The ship would sometimes make a male form, and be difficult, sometimes demanding I wrestle with him before it would take off and things like this. Kind of like the ship who sang, but with more porn. Heh.
:-)

I have been completely unable to do *anything* other than FB games and sleep. This is kind of annoying, because so many people were like "Eh! Keyhole surgery, you'll be up and about in a week!" Except tomorrow is a week, and I intend to spend most of it in bed. Again.

I'm pretty positive though. I am feeling very well supported and loved by many many awesome people in my life. I feel guilt cos I have nothing exciting to talk about, so I try not to talk about my tummy all the time LOL John has done an absolutely STERLING job in mealplanning, gettting the kids organized for daycare and cooking and everything. I am so pleased, this has meant I really have had the time and space to heal. It's an absolute godsend. Absolutely brilliant.

I read a book today! I need to write a review of it, but OMG I read a book! It was a kids book, very easy reading, rather cool. I'd happy consume the other five in the series if they were a) out already and b) on hand. :-)

I think the lying in bed all day has been rather good. Less pain tonight, which is exactly why I was trying to all day in bed thing, and I am feeling a little bit mentally sharper every day. My apologies to any one getting deluged with FB notifications, I do try and tell the programes to skip any they ask me about, and don't know how to turn off the ones that don't ask me if it's OK.

My aunt is in hospital after a heart attack. She's now in an induced coma.

And I opened what I thought was a receipt and it was a debt recovery letter! Oops! I didn't open it for a few days because I didn't realise I hadn't paid the bill! Ah well, paid now.

But still worried about my aunt.
Not a lot I can do though.

We were too tired and the house too messy to enjoy Valentines day last night, so today we put in a HEAP of effort, and we had...

Hand made fettucine with chicken, parmasan reggiana, leek and cream sauce, with a crisp garden salad and a bottle of champagne.

And for dessert we have creme caramels* for the adults.

Yum!

*Store bought, I am afraid to say.
:-)

Tonight we had stuffed aubergines with tomato and yoghurt sauce with turkish bread, and burgar and chick pea salad. for entrees we had an aubergine dip that I made yesterday, a lot like a baba ganouj but with yoghurt in it too. I almost made the bread last night, thinking the 24 hour no-knead bread would have a great chewiness to go with the dip, but in the end I bought a turkish bread.

The aubergines wereh and grown, and the size of small fists. They hollowed out beautifully, and sat plump and ripe in the sauce and simmered for an hour or so. They were stuffed with lamb, pine nuts, cinnamon, and allspice. Served, they were surrounded by a lake of tomato sauce inset by a generous puddle of yoghurt mixed with tahini.

It was lovely.

Also, with entrees we had our first bottle of Rhubarb Champagne. Chesh was surprised it was pink! It really looked like pink champagne, and it tasted mostly like a lemonade with hints of other flavours. I really liked it, and it bubbled beautifully! I am liking this ! i think i will have to make this regularly, and when we get the outside fridge fixed, have some on hand as often as possible. :-)

It's 8:26 and I have ... bottled the rhubarb champagne with Sharkbait's help. Seasolled my entire garden. Picked some tomatoes. Put a load of dishes on. Made corned beef sandwiches for Chesh. Dusted down Small Fry from all the sand he collected in his five minutes outside.  Showered. Changed clothes once already. :-)

Things! Stuff! Not bad for 2 hours awake! 

Gosh it's humid. Ick.
:-)
Lovely that it's not too hot though.

So tired

J was running a fever yesterday and was miserable and cranky all day. The panadol worked for him, but at 7:00 we thought we'd try baby nurofen for him, and that did nothing. His temperature was still very very hot, so I bundled him up and took him to the late night doctors. Which was full. They said I could leave a name and phone number and they would ring if they had space, or else go to emergency. So, I went to emergency. He's better-ish now, but I was there until 2:15. I'm in bed by 10pm these days. God am I tired.

J had a temp of 40 degrees, and they kept us so long because his heartbeat was high . It looks like it's viral. So, nothing important, I guess. I feel guilty though, and I wish the late night dr's hadn't been full. I always feel like I'm wasting the time and efforts of staff who should be working on something else when I am sititng around in emergency, something more important. At the same time, it's good to have someone close by if everything really goes wrong.

Fangirly

There are times I forget I am a fangirl.

There's so much going on in my life at the moment, and has been since V was born. Now there's V and J and also books 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and the rewrites of book 1, and the plan for the Nanobook, and and and and....  I forget what sometimes makes me passionate.

Tonight I returned to the arms of an old lover. Those of you who don't know who Depeche Mode are, here's the only version of their huge hit Just Can't Get Enough that I can actually bear to listen to. (It's the Schizo remix if you care.)

My favouritest ever song... well, ok, remix of a song.. I didn't actually expect to find on youtube...but I did. In Your Room, Jeep Rock Mix.  The first flirt...the first kiss...sweet summer music...warm winter music...and whimsical fancy :-)

LIstening to this... feeling the music flow like honey, smooth, slow, sweet, I remember all the reasons why I am who I am today, and what makes me Me.

I feel like I do when everything is running the way it should be again. The way it does when I'm not pregnant, or recovering from being pregnant. My energies are flowing. I am endlessly creative, the essential earth mother, an organizing freak and content.

I baked bread today, meal planned the week, cleaned the house, did the dishes, coloured in, drew pictures, read stories, chatted with friends, cooked lunch, cooked dinner, and wrote four thousand words. I gardened in the rain and welcomed to kiss of the sky.

This is how I should be. And this is how I am.

I gave myself two days to relax and recuperate from Femmeconne, and today I am supposed to look at my future projects and try to decide which one to do next. I have lots of options! 

But I'm sick.
:-(
So maybe today won't be project day at all.
*sigh*
Happy 60th birthday to my dad though! 

Oops

Vinnie is sick too and doesn't want to go to daycare.
:-(
Bye bye productivity!

Update: He said he wanted to go. He's now in, the painting of the map is started, beans are cooking, and jackie is down for a nap. I need to re-org my whiteboard lists, have a coffee, and plan the remaining day.
:-)
Thank goodness for panadol!

Spent a lot of time talking lately.
My eyes hurt!

Had a very awesome day. I have new trinkets! Awesomecakes!
:-)

Shit shit shit SHIT!

I just made 1.7 Litres of white sauce. Which is great. Except.... I used real wheat flour. Instead of the gluten free flour. If I use this, it makes the gluten free lasagne sheets completely pointless.

SHIT SHIT SHIT!

Oh, and a bit stressy cos I sent something off to be critiqued
:-)

Off to make more white sauce I guess.

Um, what can I do with 1.7 litres of white sauce? Can it be frozen by itself? And I have no cauliflower. Maybe take it tomorrow night as a dip? Box it to make cream of something thoups? Good god I am so .... amused and making cross eyed faces at myself. I should have another glass of coke. At least the house is clean!

No Lazytown this morning. I shall have to go find my pr0n directory that I have saved just in case this sort of thing happened.

Feeling completely crappy. Hate life. I'm wondering if this is more than periody, and into the tummy wog or something. :-(

Dammit!

I am ready for this period to come now. I'm tired of this crap feeling.
:-(

My words aren't flowing, I just want to go to bed and hide. I want to buy dinner but I don't want to spend money. I have no energy or interest in cooking or eating well. I'm just feeling pretty low.

PLAN!

Winamp sucks. And I was updating file info yesterday when there was a powercut and now it won't play at all. I have reinstalled, and it's still not playing well. I could uninstall and then reinstall, but that sounds like work, and Winamp has been steadily sucking more and more with each version.

So, recommendations? I don't need anything unusual - play lists, plays music, that's all I need... I think...
