So I'm sitting here on my butt recovering from surgery. I'm feeling fine by the way, but I have strict orders not to lift anything over ten pounds for six weeks. This is frustrating for me because I've got things I want to do around the house, and nobody is home to help me, because M and B are at work. I did get B to remove all the pollen laden furniture off the front porch this morning so I could hose everything down. Now I have a clean porch, but all my furniture is sitting in the side yard because B didn't have time to put it back before he had to leave for work. I'm finding myself sitting here looking at things and wondering, "is that less than ten pounds, can I lift it, move it, clean it, paint it?" This is going to be a long six weeks.
