To say that this week has been tough would be an understatement.
Adam had his ACL surgery on Wednesday which went smoothly other than the doctor finding two other small tears. It was one of those days when preparedness failed me. I brought everything we needed, had all the right questions, had the couch all set up at home. But I wasn’t prepared emotionally for sitting in that waiting room, staring up at the monitor willing his patient status to move from ‘OR’ to ‘recovery’. I don’t know if hormones were at play, but I’m pretty sure the woman next to me thought my husband was having some type of life-threatening surgery done.
Pregnancy does weird things to your head.
But the waiting did finally give me some time to think. About making some resolutions for 2013. I always try to go big with these, but between this surgery and expecting a little one, I’m thinking that I need to keep it more manageable.
Spending more time on the water.
Being more trusting in faith.
Making the time to take the dog on longer walks. Ones where I let him choose where we go and at what pace. Enjoying the quietness and his little tail wagging.
Creating in the kitchen more. Specifically with new types of a seafood that I’ve been hesitant to prepare.
Just the little things this year. That’s all we need.
