Where Do I Begin?

How do I even begin to explain how crazy life has been at the cottage the last few months. I don't think I'll even begin to try. That explains my lack of posts as of late. The Comedian and I were lucky enough to steal away to our favorite B&B in Pacific Grove the weekend before Christmas to celebrate our 38th anniversary. Where on earth has time gone? We enjoyed long walks along the coastline, shopping in quaint Pacific Grove (about the only place I can get The Comedian to willingly shop with me), yummy seafood,

wine tasting at Ventana Vineyards

and most importantly, lots of quiet time at the inn in front of the fireplace without TV all weekend! We had a fairly quiet Christmas minus The Bride and Groom and the Cute Redhead. Since The Comedian and I try to take either a December or January getaway trip every year we don't buy each other gifts throughout the year. It sure takes a lot of pressure off and we both get something we REALLY want.

I brought in the New Year with a Vicodene cocktail. I had foot surgery on Dec. 30th and was pretty medicated the first two days but was off all meds by day four other than an occasion ibuprofen. I'm S-L-O-W-L-Y lumbering around the house in this humongous walking boot cast thing. I have the stitches out on Tuesday but have figured how to successfully have a deliciously hot shower without getting the foot wet (can't get it wet till the stitches come out). The boot is supposed to be on for 24/7 but sometimes I just have to have a breather or I'd lose my sanity! I spend most of my days lying either in bed or on the sofa with my foot propped up. I expect to be home for another couple of weeks. I sure wish they could be productive weeks with me happily working on the many, many unfinished projects around here. Oh well, all in good time I suppose.
