Sinus Surgery – Day 9

Things I’m thankful for:
1. Neosporin + Pain Reliever all in one tube. Because I needed to put that stuff on a q-tip and rub it around inside my nose anyway; I’m glad they’ve added pain reliever so it’s bonus good.
2. Nick teaching the boys all the cooking things last week. So today the younger boys could make and bake brownies all on their own (and the house didn’t burn down because they took them out all by themselves when I totally forgot about them!) and tonight David will be making lasagna and broccoli for dinner.
3. Friends and family that check in by phone and in person, that bring us food from their homes or from the store so I don’t have to waste my energy on wandering through stores and instead can invest it in my family.
4. The sunshiny weather we’ve been having the last few days because it makes going outside to the car bearable when I have to go out to drop off and pick up boys (which is still the only reason I’ve left the house this week).
5. Time to heal and to be restful. I’ve spent a lot of time on my comfy, cozy couch this week.
6. There is no #6.
7. Netflix, without which I might be crazy from watching American daytime TV.
