Hysterversary

In the spirit of the last post, I will proceed to "do it now" instead of putting it off. Ha!

So last Tuesday was my "hysterversary". That is what the website HysterSisters.com calls the anniversary of your hysterectomy. If you're registered with them, they send you a friendly e-mail to celebrate your hysterversary. Last year about this time, if you'd have told me that I'd be celebrating, I don't know if I'd have agreed or looked at you like you were crazy. I had a fun go-around with hormones (or lack thereof) and the absolute end of my reproductive capacity.

But here I am, a year later. I've been working like mad in my garden, teaching the twins (a little anyway) and trying to dig out from under my messy house. I do not have the wonderful decorating skills that my friends have (check out Friend Cherylyn's last post!) but I've figured out that if I get rid of some of this stuff, life will be a lot happier. I'm trying.

Another do it now: the laundry. I had 5 huge baskets of clothes lying around, waiting for the maid or laundress to show up and fold and put them away. Today, I took a bunch of misplaced anger and folded or hung up all of those clothes. I'm talking probably an entire basket just of socks. Oy! And I'm not capable of matching socks that do not match, so I had to evaluate all of them to get them in the correct pairs. And I washed & dried & put my sheets back on my bed. I love fresh sheets! And these are rinsed in a lavender-scented rinse. I can't wait to try them out. So that's where I'm off to. Have a good one, y'all!

Oh how fun to read a post from you again! Facebook just isn't the same, is it? I didn't realize you had a hysterectomy, but I'm so glad that a year has now gone by and you are mended & feeling better.....and even able to celebrate the hysterversary!:)
Good for you on all the laundry and sheet washing. I love fresh, clean sheets too, but laundry is not my favorite household activity ha ha. I always have to remind myself just how blessed we all are to have so many beautiful clothes....that generate so much laundry lol! It's great to see you here & to read your posts once again! I hope you post more often. I'm really trying to get back into blogging again. Blessings to you!
