Ten Things Thursday!!

Thanks to the gorgeous Laura Belle we have Ten Things Thursday!!

1. It is official. My surgery date is March 19th. Yikes....less than two weeks away. I turned in my leave paperwork today. Just like when I had lapband surgery, I have read all kinds of blogs, boards and forums. A lot of people said they slept in a recliner for the first few days. I didn't have a recliner and I was afraid I wouldn't even be able to get in my bed since it sits up kinda high and I am only 5 ft tall and already have to climb to get in it. So, I bought a leather recliner from somebody off of the list of Craig. I will turn around resell it as soon as I know I can sleep in bed again.

2. The "thing" that was going on at work last week has still not been resolved. Actually, I found out today that the situation was even worse than I knew. Wish I could tell ya about it, but I can't. I will say that I totally think some people should not be working around kids. Ever.

3. So we know we are getting furloughed, but we still don't know the details. The rumor is that starting in April we will go to four day weeks (off on Friday) and our school year will end 2 weeks early. I am NOT looking forward to losing 20% of my pay, but I could totally handle having a 3 day weekend every week.

4. My band doctor said I did not have to have an unfill unless I wanted it. I am totally going back and forth about this. I don't want an unfill, but at the same time I know you retain fluid after a tummy tuck...fluid retention means a tighter band....a tighter band means possible stuck episodes....possible stuck means possible throwing up. Throwing up after a tummy tuck.....I don't want to even think about that.

5. I saw this thing on the news the other night about a study on the length of a woman's pointer/ring finger. The study showed that if you are a woman and your ring finger is longer than your pointer finger then you are more likely to make more money, be successful in business, etc. Something about because you have more testosterone. Since I saw that I have been obsessed with asking to see people's hands to see if their ring finger is longer or not. By the way, my ring finger is longer and I can promise you that doesn't mean I make a lot of money :)

6. I have to pay taxes this year. That sucks.

7. I have been eating Activia to "regulate" my body. That stuff is no joke.

8. This weekend the clocks spring forward. I love it when the days are longer, but I hate, hate, hate the thought of losing an hour of sleep.

9. I have already started my "vacation box"...I go to the beach with my one of my bff's every year in June. We stay in a condo, so we have to bring stuff like laundry detergent, paper towels, etc. I usually just go shopping all at once for that stuff (or wait until we get there) but I am so ready for a nice beach vacation that I have already completely paid for it and started packing.

10. I want/need a new purse. The problem with that is that I have got to be the world's pickiest person about buying a new purse. It's either too big, or too small, doesn't have a zipper compartment, has too many zipper compartments, the color isn't right, I don;t like the strap...blah, blah, blah.

I think one of the best things about a vacation is looking forward to it, and this year you will even have your new belly button! :-) Now I'm jealous and realize I sorely need to plan a girl's trip too's been WAY too long!

As far as the unfill/fill question - aren't you likely to not eat much right after the surgery no matter what? By the time it would matter (a couple weeks post op) you could go and get an unfill if you needed it, right? Or maybe not...just tossing out ignorant ideas. ;-P lol I guess I'd lean towards avoiding the extra needle sticks if you don't need them, but I'm a wimp, and I admit it.

#8 - UGH. LIke I need to lose anymore sleep! You need a MK purse. I love mine and I'm sooooo picky!

Vanessa said...

I need a purse too! and my ring finger is longer than my pointer! Bring on the Bling!

Christy said...

I feel you on the purse thing...I have been looking for months and I can't find one that is just right. Congrats on your surgery date!!! :)

jennxaz said...

yay!!!! I am glad you got your date! The thought of getting an emergency unfill just after surgery in same area...scares the becrap out of me. The thought of getting a fill after having surgery on the same area...scares the becrap out of me...good luck with that one!

A.J. said...

March 19 is my bandiversary. Yay for you!!!

Mon said...

#7...I only ever refer to it as "the poop yogurt" :)

Oh, and congrats on the surgery date!!!

Anna said...

Yay for your official surgery date! And I am *so* with you on the purse thing. I actually just bought a new one last night, but picking out purses is almost as bad to me as picking out bras! I *hate* the process!

Cat said...

I need a new black purse. I keep hoping Drazzie's closet offers one up! Haha.

My pointer and ring fingers are the same length. I am doomed to poor!!

I eat Activia nearly every day. I have to or ... yeah, bad days follow. : )

Laura Belle said...

Damn it. I forgot what I was going to write. Shitballs.

Damn baby brain.

Sarah said...

Congratulations on the surgery date. That's fantastic news.

2) Indeed some people should not and it saddens me that they get to before anyone works that out :o(

8) British Summer Time starts while I am in Mexico. I am choosing to believe this will make the flight home shorter. xx

Congrats on the surgery; so happy for you! About you being the pickiest person on the planet about purses, I think you and my mother could go head to head for that title. ;)

Anyways, good luck with your surgery and may it make your summer vacation even that much greater!
