Day 3 - Off the narcotics

I'm trying to wean off the drugs, only took Neurotin today, which apparently still makes me a little floopsy.  I wanted to try to get off the hydrocodone by day, during the day, while Eric was home.
That way if I got in a bad way, I'd still have Eric home to help me out.  He really is my Voice of Reason.  I am still taking them at night, because frankly, I am not cut out to sleep on my back all night long, and I find if I'm not drugged as I sleep the desire to roll over wakes me in pain where my stitches are if I'm not drugged into immobility.  On the upside, being drugged makes me sleep all night on my back, which is what they want anyway.   During the day, I like to nap in my little upstairs recliner.   It's hard to roll over there too.

I got dressed.  In clothes! 
This cute little bra is looking more and more natural on me.  
I'm getting used to it.  And I really enjoy the way some of my trusted T's fit on me now. 

As with many things that I attempt lately, I got dressed, and had to take a nap.  I got up, had lunch, and had to take a nap.  Luckily, having Eric around meant that I got rest freely, and I took full advantage of that.   I am seriously digging my re-establishment of the art of the two nap day.  

The roses that Jacob picked out for me opened up very prettily too. 

This shot rocks.  It's my new favorite.  Even though the edges aren't as crisp as they could be.  A. I'm on drugs, but B. It gives it a kind of artsy look I didn't intend, but I totally dig.  So Boom, Baby. 
A new favorite.  

The theme for today from my Photo a Day was Kitchen.  Mine is kind of a mess, because we aren't exactly feeling up to doing much within it.  But at the same time, it's kind of Lovely that way. 

A friend brought us dinner tonight, a homemade morrocan cous-cous.  I didn't think to take pictures of it, but I wish I had.  It was simple and scrumptious, a bed of cous cous topped with hunks of beef and veggies.   There were some mild spices like ginger, saffron, and maybe a smidge of turmeric and cinnamon.  Scrumptious, and we didn't have to do anything but have wonderful friends.  

We really are Blessed.
