Valentine decor around the house...

I put out a few Valentine things before surgery.
 I didn't realize how tired I really was until everyone left the house Monday for school and I was alone.
I love my family, but I’m also enjoying the peace and quiet while my body is healing.
My energy has been completely zapped and I've actually been napping (something I never ever do).
I haven't felt like reading yet, but I've been making lists of books to check out later. Many of you have been sharing your favorite reads.  Thank you.
A box of Valentine ornaments arrived from Sarah at Makin Projects.  I always participate in her holiday swaps and bowed out this year knowing I would need to focus on other things before surgery. 

Thank you, ladies for your generosity.   Totally unexpected and much appreciated.
 I also need to thank everyone who sent get well cards and special Valentines too. I'm definitely feeling the love.  

On Thursday, I'll have a very special Valentine post.  I took the pictures well before surgery when I was allowed to climb through mounds of snow and strategically bend my body in odd positions to get the perfect shot.  Stay tuned.

Nap away! It's what your body needs right now.

Yes naps help I know after my surgery I took lots of naps, don't feel guilty before you know it you'll be up and around!

Nap all day if you need to. Sleep is the best thing for you right now.

This is all very natural after surgery, just take your time getting well and don't over do...you will be totally back to normal in no time. And take all of the naps you need.

I'm so glad you are at home and trying to rest at least. I hate taking naps but when your body needs one, it's better to sleep. Love your sweet Valentines and gifts. Those with ice skaters are my favorites! Sweet hugs my friend!

Once this is over, you'll think it's the best thing you ever did! Don't rush it. I had mine when I was working at the nursing home as an activity director. I went back 2 weeks before I should and I paid for it! Take care of yourself first!
I love the cookie cutters!!! Hope you feel better than your old self soon!
