Drop your child off at your mother-in-law's house.
Go to a facility with your spouse.
Get into comfortable clothing and lie down in bed. A heated blanket would be nice.
Take a little something to relax.
Have a nap. A deep, deep nap.
Leave the facility. Let your spouse do the driving.
Make your spouse get you ice cream from Coldstone.
Make your spouse get you salad from Cafe Rio.
Go to your in-laws' and let your mother-in-law continue to take care of your child. Eat your salad.
Watch Dr. Phil.
Take another nap.
Make your spouse go to Target for you to get you some drugs.
Go home. Lay down. Put your feet up. You deserve it.
Nap some more. Have your mother-in-law make you dinner. While you're at it, tell the Relief Society president that you wouldn't even mind if women in the ward made you dinner.
Watch a movie.
Go to sleep. And sleep in.
Head downstairs and put your feet up again. Make sure you take some heavy-duty drugs. Why not?
Make your spouse make you food.
Commission a painting from your spouse.
Watch more TV. Eat yummy Relief Society food.
Well... you get the idea anyway. Just continue doing these activities for a whole weekend. And then, on Monday, have your mother-in-law come to the house and vacuum and do the laundry.
I had my foot surgery on Friday and everything went well. I now know what it feels like to be put under (it's pretty cool). And hopefully, in a couple months, I'll know what it's like to have a normal foot again. Fingers crossed!
(This is an iPhone picture that Murray did while the surgery was being performed. On my cast, he is painting an octopus's garden. I'll post a picture when it is completed.)
