It's the first day of Spring, and look what was welcoming me when I got home from my 6-week check-up! Isn't she beautiful? She's still not so sure she wants to face the world, especially after the heavy snows we had last week and the flooding rains that we have had for the past few days.
I don't blame her; I know how she feels.
For the past 6 weeks I have been recovering from having a hysterectomy. The first two weeks were a little hard on me, but after that I felt like blogging and sewing again. Now that the 6 weeks is over with, I'm a little unsure about going back into the world of what sometimes feels like chaos.
I'll have to be honest...it's been fun. Yes the blogging and sewing has been fun, but not having many responsibilites has been great fun! Do you remember when you were a child and all you thought about was playing outside and occasionally cleaning your room? Yep...that's what the past few weeks have felt like. All I thought about was playing in my sewing room, blogging, and doing some light housework.
Do you remember when you were 15 or 16 and you couldn't wait to drive? I have loved not being able to drive. I have loved being at home and staying here. In a weird kind of way this has been a vacation for me; one that I evidently needed.
Like the daffodil, I am going to have to face the world sooner or later. The doctor said today a little later than planned. It seems that I need more time to heal. That's fine with me. My family understands. I don't want to do something to my body that would create problems later and I may not be able to change.
Hopefully when I do face the world I will face it with a new understanding of myself. I do love being at home. I love keeping my house clean. I love being organized to a certain extent. I love spending time sewing. I need that. I love spending time alone. I need that, too. However, for those things to happen, I need to be home more often, which means that I have to make some changes.
Change is good. Now I will just have to convince my family! LOL
