Toot Your Horn Tuesday - A Little Surgery



So, it's Tuesday again. What kind of fantastic accomplishments can you share?

I'm sitting here on my cozy couch with my feet up. Yep, I'm recuperating from a little outpatient surgery. Nothing to worry about, a few "female" repairs. Just my body telling me to "stop having babies" I think or maybe "you're getting old!"

Either way, I'm under doctor's orders to stay off my feet (generally) for 2 weeks. It's day 5 and I'm already going stir crazy. Did I mention that it's also Spring Break for my kids? AND the weather is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! The perks....Husband and Mother prepared Easter Dinner! Kids cleaned the house! I'm catching up on all my DVR'd shows! And this will be my view for a while...

You would think that I'd have more time to blog this past week, but that's a big FAIL! I've actually been on the computer a lot, but wasting much too much time of Facebook and Ebay. I bought Glynis some clothes! Yay!

Ok, I'll leave it to you guys now. I'm going out to lunch with a few women from my family, but I plan on coming home to loads of links! Can't wait to see what you are all up to.

Remember to use a link back on your blogs so that we can spread the fun!

Hi Leah,

I put my name in the box instead of the project name, duh! My first time linking up with you...

Can you change it to read "super-quick super-thrifty cutlery holder" pleeease:-)

Thanks for hosting, hope you don't go crazy resting up. I broke my foot last year and it was so hard to slow down! My sympathies.
