Boredom is dangerous

One week after surgery, I'm feeling well enough to sleep a bit less, but not pain free enough to do cartwheels or spend more than ten minutes on my feet. I think this is the danger stage, because I think my brain cells are atrophying. I'm finding myself watching shopping channels of all things. This is depressing! It's time to tackle a good book.

Our son gave me a copy of "Proof of Heaven", an account of a surgeons near death experience. I guess since I made it through surgery he figured it was a safe choice. He was very taken with this book, so I think I'll give it a try, in small doses.

Cleaning up and renaming duplicate photo files is my other non-exciting days activity; but something I've been doing in small doses before surgery and now I certainly have the time to hopefully finish this chore. It's another job that I can only do in small doses before I go bleary eyed. So I think it's time to open Paint Shop Pro and get to work until I'm ready to nap or find another old movie to watch.


  1. Have you read any of Khaled Hosseini books ? I recently enjoyed "And the Mountains Echoed." I think my favorite though was A Thousand Splendid Suns - interesting look into life for women in a different culture. We are so lucky here in North America.
