Every day does get better - thanks Jenny!

And Heather - I'm in St. Louis. Did you have your surgery here?

Haven't figured out how best to respond to comments :).

Yeah for me - I just drank about 3/4 of a premade protein shake pretty quickly (blech!!!). And, I don't feel an awful amount of pressure in my chest. I think that's a good sign that I'm healing and the swelling is going down.

So looking forward to being able to eat a healthy diet and ditch the protein shakes.

Three movies so far during the recovery. I honestly think that's more than I saw in at least the last 6 months, maybe even the last year.

The September Issue - pretty good. Nice and low key so good for resting. So fun to get a peak into Vogue.

Pirate Radio - British music in the 60s. Again fun, sort of slow but super cute British boy "Young Carl".

Sherlock Holmes - more rambunctious bit requires a level of attention that I wasn't always able to give. Really like Rachel McAdams though.

I'd rate them all - pretty good. Might watch 500 Days of Summer tonight (bouyed by Catherine's recommendation).

And, way, way too many episodes of House Hunters to count. So much for my grand plans of home organization.

Oh- I forgot, saw Toy Story 3 yesterday. Pretty dark for my 4 year old. Lots of tears for Mommy.


  1. I heard Toy Story is bad for any kid under 5...tears too though? Wow...I have to see it.

  2. I researched having my surgery in STL, but I live 2 hours south. I ended up going with a surgeon based in Champaign, IL (3.5 hours away), but he has an office in Mt. Vernon (1 hour away). This way I only have to take 1/2 day off work for appointments. I really like him too. So all is good. I do however frequent STL. It is the closest place to shop!

  3. Glad you are feeling better. Would be interested in hearing your review of 500 days of summer and if you think it is appropriate for a 14 and 11 year old. I believe it's PG-13.

  4. Really? I took both kids 4 & 5 to see it over the weekend and they both loved it. I guess it depends on your kid. I can see how it could be dark-
