Use Your Words: Cut Me Real Deep Shrek

I know you guys are accustomed to my using the UYW posts for funny little twists. 

I decided to be real this time.

On March 10, 2020, I will be going under the knife and having a complete hysterectomy. 

Since probably 2014, I've had issues relating to bits. Last year, however, the pain magnified and I went to the ER. It was diagnosed at that time that I had an uterine fibroid. It was causing a LOT of pain. 

In the matter of 6 months, it grew. 

I FINALLY was able to get into the doctor and they did a biopsy. At that point, it was determined I have hyperplasia. 

On 1/29, I went to the doctor to schedule my treatment. I was shocked when they said they were referring me to an oncologist. I immediately thought the worst. 

2/13, I went to the oncologist and scheduled the date for my surgery. It will take place AFTER my cruise. Oh...and we are moving to a new home. I will be recovering 6-8 weeks. This won't be a bowl full of cherries for sure!

So what will I do?

Well, I'll have a bigger home, so I plan to hang out in my room in a fluffy towel a lot. Wearing pants will hurt.

If I had a way to do it, I'd make laser-guided wood decor. You signs and stuff like that. But I DON'T have the tools, nor the know how.

I'm going to watch the mailbox to see if I get any goodies.

I'm going to TRY to at least cook dinner so my husband isn't swamped with working and taking care of the me and the house.

Finally, I'm going to kick up my feet and watch all the TV...including Wheel of Fortune!

Have any of you gone through this? Got any tips?

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words were "A bowl of cherries ~ fluffy towel ~ laser-guided ~ mailbox ~ swamped ~ wheel of fortune" and they were submitted by my fabulous friend Tamara from Part-timeWorking Hockey Mom.

Secret Subject Swap: Ramble On

Today, I feel overworked and confused. For about a couple of months, I wasn't being used. Now, it's every single day! But tomorrow, I won't be used yet again and who knows when I'll get to work the next time. I don't get paid for this, nor do I get any appreciation. It's not really a HARD job, per say. I just run a few hours a day. I used to run all day and all night. I don't know if I'll get to continue or not and I guess that worries me, but I'm not sure. Sometimes, I have to have some help from the others. It sits in the room and they usually only use it at night. But sometimes, I can't keep up and they have to use it. 

One would think this is a cool job, but it really isn't. Being an air conditioner, especially in the Florida heat, can be hard.

What do you feel?

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 9 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My subject was "Let your mind take a weird ramble today. Start with the sentence, "Today, I feel..." and begin describing your emotions and how you feel about your day but from the point of one of your household appliances." and it was submitted by Jen from Sparkly Poetic Weirdo.
