Miss Me?

Wow... I officially made it through the entire month of November without a single post. Aren't you all lucky?
The month started off pretty awesome, I spent 4 days in Las Vegas with one of my best friends, Kelly. It was great to just hang out and catch up, oh and sleep all night long. Kelly was also nice enough to not wake me up in the mornings. It was basically like heaven.
We spent one evening on the Strip just walking, people watching and enjoying the lights and everything that is "Vegas."
Then we went to The Hoover Dam, my nerdy engineer gears were spinning like crazy. It was so crazy impressive. Then I made Kelly walk over the bridge. She wasn't super excited as she says she doesn't even like to drive over it, I asked if we could bungee jump off of it (no, they don't allow that... bummer).

Can you see how teeny tiny the cars are, for perspective? You probably have to zoom in to even see them.

Proof that it is possible to be in two places at once.
So, after a great trip.... it was time to head home. I had one day at work and then my surgery. That totally sucked, but at least Dr. Yummy was part of that plan. The bad news: He definitely saw me naked because I was in a different shirt after surgery then when I went in.
I told him I was taking his picture for my blog, I think he thought I was joking. Next appointment I'll tell him he's an internet sensation.
Oh, but I did get a little crafty. They told me to bring an old t-shirt that could be cut up the back, I would be wearing it for 4 days. So I cut a t-shirt myself, put a snap at the neck and then sewed on ribbons up the back so it could be tied shut. The staff thought it was great, I thought it was awesome that my shirt actually stayed on that long. I guess with enough pain and enough drugs, you worry a little less about that stuff.

After surgery, my mom took my picture. Luckily she took good care of me so I still like her. I've spent the last few weeks recovering slowly, watching The Good Wife on DVD and trying to figure out how to dry my hair with only one hand (I put the hair dryer in the towel holder, works awesome). The bad part is that I can't hold Baby Olive or take care of her at all... the good news is that I also can't do laundry, make dinner or help with the dishes. You win some, you lose some.
Alright, it took me about 2 hours to type this with 1 hand so I'm going to get back to my TV, I think Tori & Dean are waiting for me on my DVR.

I had shoulder surgery several years ago, it sucked!

I hope you're recovering well....and catching up on your dvr!

Glad to hear you're getting some rest!
When do you go back to see Dr. Yummy?

hope you have a speedy recovery. Beautiful pictures of Vegas, and nothing like sleeping through the night, and not being woken by a snotty, little kid.
