House of Smiths: My Favorite Blogs

{A Little Down Time}
On Wednesday we found out that Cason would be having a little impromptu surgery.  Nothing major, but a surgery all the same.
I've never been "put under"... HECK!  I've never even broken a bone, or gotten stitches!  But I HAVE been the support person for a few people who have been under anesthesia ... and I've learned a couple things.
1: They are always cold
2: Some of them throw up...ehk. (lucky, not Cason. ha!)
3: Their throats are raw, and they are reeeeaaaally sleepy, for pretty much the rest of the day.
I love this guy, and I'm giving him ALL my attention.
Because I can  :)
(thanks to Cason's Mom for taking the girls)
And because after I had my babies, and felt like crap ... he got MY pain killers, woke up at 3am to hand me our baby,
(which in this case, is a less noisy, ice pack) and made sure that I always had what I needed.
I think it's only fair to return the favor.
Plus, A day in bed, forced to watch TV with my guy, while browsing my favorite blogs...
Might just be up there, with MY top 10 most favorite days
:)

Projects will just have to wait.
Till then... "A browsin' 'round my favorites, we shall go!"...

    Lucky for him he has such a great nurse.

    great idea for "our" recovery! Cant wait to spend a couple days together.
    Speedy recovery wishes.

  8. when I was dating the lusty woodsman, he had a rod removed from his leg (long story short...he saved the arborvitae) and I was the lucky one who had to care for him after...he was in a drug induced swoon! told me he loved me, wanted to marry me, etc...so cute. we've been together 17 years. sigh...i hope your main squeeze heals quickly.
    happy weekend!
