It’s been one week post knee surgery and I sort of have a routine.
Get up whenever I want. If it is early and cool out, I sit outside sipping a glass of orange juice.
Check on the plants and water them if needed. The lettuce is starting to grow.
After a bit of rest, it’s time to fix lunch. I then eat lunch while icing the knee and watching a movie. Today’s attraction is Paint Your Wagon. Great musical from 1969.
Now it is chore time. Maybe a load of laundry, dishes, or vacuuming. Today is vacuuming. Mostly Miko’s hair.
Rest, elevate, and ice time again. I usually get some reading done until I fall asleep.
Now for the day’s highlight: cleaning litter boxes! If that doesn’t earn more rest time, I don’t know what does.
Dinner time or dessert time, depending on how I feel. A little Netflix maybe (I am watching NCIS, currently on season 4).
Bedtime requires pain meds, book reading, and cat snuggling.
All in a days work. I don’t feel retired yet because I can’t do anything carefree yet. But it is nice to not worry about work stuff.
