Bad Bad Denise

I did it.
I did too much today and I am paying dearly for it.
Pain.....lots of pain.
Please don't yell at me.....and don't tell me I know better.
Because I DO know better. But I also know ME and I know that I have trouble with this whole do nothing stuff.
Plus I am having trouble watching my Hubby struggle with doing all his normal stuff plus all MY stuff. So I try to help a little but don't know when to stop.
For instance, my plan this afternoon was to unload and load the dishwasher. I'm sure if I had done that and ONLY that, then I would have been fine. But no.....I didn't stop there. I also hand washed the rest of the dishes that don't go in the dishwasher. Then blanched 3 dozen ears of corn for freezing. Then made tea. Then it was pushing dinnertime and Hubby was still outside mowing the lawn so I set the table and put biscuits in the oven.
This may not sound like much......but to my sore body it was WAY too much. So here I sit, suffering in silence. Knowing if I complain I will not receive any sympathy.....even though I did most of this to help Hubby.
He would just tell me he doesn't need my help. And he is right.

I have a friend who's Aunt had surgery like ours. She did similar things like in your post and the bladder sling ripped out and she had to re-have the surgery. Just sayin.... It was this story that kept my butt down for 7 weeks!! Take care of yourself!!

I'm thinking it's time for your husband to break out the duct tape.

Amy said...

OH! I like Em's idea!! Ask John if he needs me to bring some over! lmao!
