Miss Melanie...how are you today?


Source

During the hussle & bussle of times, you have to remember to take off your high-heels, the make-up, let your hair down, & just let out a breath of fresh of air. I can’t believe it’s been a lil over a week since I had surgery. Honestly it seems like weeks. Perhaps it’s because my days are so long it feels like more time has gone by when it hasn’t. I think I wanted so desperately to feel better & to get back to my daily routine that I haven’t had a moment to really sit down & relax. Last week was insane, regardless of the 4-day work week & the heat isn’t helping. So honestly overall I feel tons better but feeling frazzled in a lot areas of my life right now.

I had a fibroid removed from my right breast on May 28th for those new readers (Hi!) & it’s still very sensitive. My right arm has been hurting me ever since & it still hurts. Not so much pain but a straining feeling like I’m on a weight machine pushing up weights that are too heavy for me. I’m a righty but I usually drive with my left hand so that’s a plus. All the muscles are connected which could be the culprit. It doesn’t help that I type all day long at my job. Time is what I need. The surgeon did do a good job; I don’t think I’m going to have much of a scar. I got enough scars I think. I also will admit I’m struggling on giving up all caffeine. I’ve been good so far giving up coffee, but I’m dragging. I’ve had some tea & some soda. This is hard. I didn’t think I was addicted to coffee but I was. Is their an A.A.A. for coffee-drinkers? No seriously is there???

I don’t feel overwhelmed, *knock on wood* but I just feel that the next 6 months are going to bring some serious challenges, changes, & decisions. I somehow need to get ready. It’s like I have to prepare for things. But…how can you prepare for the definitely coming unknown? It’s making my head spin. What will be first? A boyfriend? A new job? The apartment I so desperately want? A real vacation? Who knows…I’ll take it as I come but I want to be ready for it. Is that wrong? I need to continue on the feeling better part first…hopefully the mental wellness will catch-up then.

It’s a hard job, life…but someone’s gotta do it.

In other news I did get tagged by one of my awesome blogger friends Tess @ Quintessentially Quirkness to do a series of questions, so I gotta do it! =) If anyone wants to do these questions…by all means. =)

1. For those nights when you eat ice cream out of the carton, you are watching what guilty pleasure TV show?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I loved that show, I have almost all the seasons except the last one on DVD. She was sooo badass!!

2. If you could have any animal in the zoo as your pet, what would you choose?
I’ve seen the movie, “Bringing up Baby” with Carey Grant & Kathryn Hepburn too many times not say a leopard!!

3. What would your daemon be (for you Philip Pullman fans) or what would your patronus be (calling all Potterheads)?
I’m not sure what my daemon would be. Maybe a giraffe caught in the wind. Giraffes are always in my dreams.

4. What was your favorite childrens book?
This book where this kid had to name a bear Thockmorton. I can’t remember the title.

5. What is the most overrated movie you have ever watched?
Avatar. I’m sorry it was Ferngully redone.

6. What book character would you like to befriend?
Anita Blake, from the vampire hunter chronicles by Laurell K. Hamilton.

7. What is your favorite type of cake?
Carvel Ice Cream cake

8. What song to you sing along to in your car when no one is with you?
Total Eclipse of the Heart. – love that song. =)

as challenging as the uncertainty of the future is, it is also very exciting to wait for whats in store. I hope all the things you are wanting come your way from the boyfriend to that apartment you have been working so hard towards. I also hope that you get too feeling better soon from your surgery :)!

I can't believe Avatar was up for best picture! It was horrible.

Be careful what teas you drink, some have more caffeine than coffee.

I'm glad you are feeling better and I hope you get to feeling 100% very soon!!! I looooove ice cream cake too!!!!! I try not to bring any home though because I will eat the whole thing!! YUM!! :D

Diana Mieczan said...

I think changes are good and I usually just take them as they come...Most importantly you have to feel better and then everything will work itself out! I've never tasted a Carvel Ice Cream cake...Sounds so yummy :)
Kisses sweetie and enjoy your Monday :)

I can understand why you're nervous, the future is scary, but I think you're being optimistic about it

hope the arm feels better

thanks for doing the tag!

Uncertainty isn't a bad thing....the only thing I feel like we are in control of is ourselves. What we do, say, think and feel....but we can't control anything else - so we really shouldn't worry about it!

As long as you are doing what is absolutely BEST for YOU, things will work out :)

Hope you're feeling better!

Couture Carrie said...

I'm so sorry that you are in pain, darling!

Love this tag ~ yay for Carvel!

Oh!! feel good soon:)

I hate waiting and wondering about change, but it's often just what I needed. I hope it is for you, too.

Now, about that list. I. Must. Gank. It. And I must comment about your opinion of Avatar. I SO SAID THAT IN THE THEATRE! I dealt with it, as I would like to do things to Sam Worthington that would call for my husband to divorce me, but it was SO CGI Fern Gully!

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Kristin said...

THANK YOU for #5! And Ferngully was better. HA!

Tights Lover said...

Glad to hear your recovering. Hope you continue to feel better.

Good luck giving up the coffee...I know I could never do it!

If you find CAA (caffeine addicts anonymous), PLEASE let me know. I could really use their help too. I'm slowly cutting down 'cauz when I tried to cut down too quickly, I ended up with the most massive headaches. My shiatsu therapist/accupuncturist actually told me that espresso is better for you than coffee because of the way it gets absorbed into your system ... even Barry's hooked ... the man who never drank a whole cup of coffee in his life. Go figure.
As far as the future is concerned, just take it one day at a time and enjoy the ride. I vaguely remember being almost 25. I think I was having too much fun to remember too much about it. LOL But seriously Mel, try not to worry; just enjoy. I know you've been through some crappy men (won't call them relationships 'cause they really haven't been). I didn't meet Barry until I was 27, so there's lots of time. Just enjoy.
I hope you're out of pain soon. Take care of yourself!

Hey hun! Sending you lots of positive vibes. I hope you feel better soon. Life is a mystery, it's exciting and scary. I would love to know what life has coming for me and the adventures that comes along the way. If only we could peek and prepare for what may come. I guess we'll just have to cross the bridge when we get there.
Take care sweetie

Keith said...

Take care. I'm praying for you. I wish you all the best.

I was just asking myself that about coffee the other day. I never realized how addicted I was to it until my coffeemaker broke last Friday, and I literally spent the ENTIRE day sleeping. I could not get up without my coffee. I think we need to form CDA - Coffee Drinker's Anonymous! :P

Jennifer said...

I'm glad you're better.

As far as Avatar is concerned in my book, I loved it, but it was far from the BEST FREAKIN MOVIE I EVER SAW ZOMG like most people liked to think about it...

Really, the plot wasn't much different than most movies like it: Pocahontas, etc.

Changes are positive - it's how we deal with said changes - and finding the right balance. It's nice to be without high heels, make-up and painted nails - this is a wonderful way to unfold within oneself. XX

OceanDreams said...

I love Total Eclipse of the Heart, so amazing!! Glad your surgery went well and I hope you continue to feel better and changes are totally good! You know how I have been getting ready for them...thanks for all of your sweet comments by the way. Hang in there girl and just take one step at at a time.
