Couch Potato it is!

OK, I give......I am done trying to "help" around here. I'm going to listen to the doctors, nurses and all the wonderful friends and family members and sit my butt down and leave it there. Wow. This is going to be hard but I know I need to do it. I think my biggest problem is that I deal with pain daily (Sjogrens and Fibro....yep!) and have to continually push through to get stuff done. So my mindset is kind of set that way. But pushing through the Sjoggie and Fibro pain wont cause me to need more surgery. So with that in mind I am retiring to the couch. Only to be moved in case of meals, potty breaks and bedtime. See where I am sitting? I will still be here in 6 weeks. I promise. Ok, I promise to try really hard.
Luckily I have several new books sitting here with me. The Shack, The Purpose Driven Life and my newest (review book...not available in stores until later in Sept) You Were Born for This. Oh! And I just got an email that Ted Dekker's Three is being shipped to me. Thank you Paperbackswap.com!

P.S. Thank you Jillene, I needed that "example" of what could happen.
