a nice morning surprise; despite Chronic Pain

I awoke this morning to find a bunch of attachments from my fiance’ family; it was of “Baby J-Bird” (Josephine)- my fiance’ 9 month old niece, playing with her new build-a-bear we did with them yesterday. She absolutely loves and adores it. Despite my chronic pain and need for relief and pain meds, and despite my Wound bleeding badly and acting up again, but that is Life and can’t do much about it.

I’d post the video I did of Serenity doing hers, but the site isn’t letting me.

In other news, I finally got my “official” engagement ring. We had one, but it wasn’t my official one that had my initials on the inside of it. Finally got it today 🙂 #SoHappy

Fun last night; Sore today

The wedding for my cousin was so much fun. The ceremony was beautiful. The bride was gorgeous. The celebrant(priest) cracked some jokes and made the audience chuckle. The reception was great with awesome food, great music, a beautiful cake, lots of fun and dancing, a cute cardboard cutout to take photos in, a fun and creative “send off for the bride and groom,” and of course an open bar! All the makings of a great Louisiana Cajun wedding.

For me, even though it wasn’t my wedding, I still had a great night. 1.) I wasn’t hurting for once, 2.) My stomach cooperated which is very unusual for social events, 3.) I got to see my godson and his family, and 4.) I danced and sang almost the entire night! I danced with my younger cousins, older cousins, strangers (to me- they were probably family or friends of the bride or friends of the groom), Mom, and my wonderful fiance’ David danced with me a few times for slow dances and one fast song, “Brown eyed girl,” (which is usually me and mom’s song, but Mom was nowhere to be found when it came on, so I had a substitute. LOL)

However, today, I am paying for all that cutting up and fun, as I am sore to the max! I slept till noon, soaks in the tub didn’t help, had to give in and take my pain meds.
I can’t wait till after surgery when I can have fun and not be so sore the next day. I missed having fun like that!
