For some reason I’ve got early 2000’s CCM stuck in my head today? I caught myself singing Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Speechless” earlier and it inspired me to turn on the album, which is still pretty great all these years later (but that might just be nostalgia talking).
I spent today planning for both post-surgery and Christmas, since I’m not sure yet when my surgery will be. If it’s during December I won’t have any time to get ready for Christmas, so I’d like to have all my gifts and plans firmly in place before November ends. As for post-surgery prep, I’ve got a to-do list based on all the things that tripped us up last time I had surgery, and we’ve already started crossing things off that list. I think this time around it’s going to be a lot smoother!
Overall, a lot better than I have been. I’m starting to feel the intended effects of both the iron and the antibiotic I’m on (instead of just the unpleasant side effects). My appetite today was great, and while I’m still feeling pretty tired, it’s not that miserable achey kind of exhausted that I’ve been feeling since last last weekend.
I found this recipe on pinterest for baked oatmeal cups and made a batch yesterday to help me get in more carbs and fruit each day. I used apples and blueberries and let me tell you! They’re yummy. The consistency isn’t what I expected, though.. They’re kinda mushy like thick oatmeal in the middle, but I like it!
this new blog theme that I accidentally installed yesterday when I was trying to just demo it. Whoops! Luckily, I actually like the new layout a lot. I’m still tweaking a few small details, but overall I think it works pretty well for this daily project. I also finally rewrote my About Me and About the Blog pages! Let me know what y’all think about the new layout and About pages, especially if you find anything confusing or weird.. I don’t want that to be the experience people have on this blog.
