Fly On The Wall: A Post From My Kid

Hey guys! As you might know, I recently had a major surgery. I'm not ready to sit up and write, so I thought, why not have my kiddo do it?

Meet Anastasia! She's 15 and this is her version of Fly On The Wall.

*It's February 28th, and my siblings and I are at home. It was the day that we finally got to move, and boy was it stressful. It didn't take too long, but there was a lot of heavy lifting involved. Anyhow, we got moved in nonetheless. I cried so much that day because sleeping alone after so many years of sharing a room was a lot harder than I thought, but hey! I'm doing much better now.

*On February 29th, we finally left for our cruise. Such paradise it was, and let me tell you, I had the best time of my life and was sad to say goodbye to the friends I made. The teen club had only guys in it, so the group was really chaotic. I had bruises all over me from playing capture the flag, running around the ship, and so on. All in all, it was a fantastic cruise and I wish that I could go again!

*When we got back on the 5th of March, we had a lot of unpacking to do, and it went by very quickly. I got my room set up, the walls are still kind of bare, but I can manage.

*And now for the present talk! It is March 19th, and I'm enjoying having my room with my own privacy. I've gotten into Dungeons and Dragons, and started writing my very own campaign! I've also found a liking for pink and purple things--which is quite odd for my taste of clothing. Now, I'm not the best writer in the world, but I love to write! The motivation needs to be there, but it's something that I love to do in my free time besides watch Disney+ and Netflix, or make videos on this app called TikTok.

Anywho, I'm going to end it here. Thank you for reading!

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.
