Woke up to 60 degrees this morning in the house. It makes it hard to crawl out from under the covers when it is that cold at 5 in the morning. I took some melatonin last night and was able to get a bit of rest. I have talked to several friends and as I understand it this goes on for awhile, the lack of sleep, Arghhh. I had a couple of space heaters and the oven going to get the temp up to 62 while I made coffee this morning.
The service technician came by the house around 9:30 and replaced a capacitor and got the heater going again. Ah blessed heat. It took about 2 hours to get the heat up to 70. It felt so good to have heat again.
I got my exercise regime done, had some lunch, took a 45 minute nap and then we decided to go out and walk. One of my friends that has had this surgery said for me to concentrate on heel to toe walking and not to flat foot it. I could definitely feel the difference. We toured Wal-Mart, then made a trip to Best Buy and then hopped over to Sam's Club so I could pick up a prescription.
After we got home I decided to fix tacos for dinner. Boy, were they good and we had enough left over for lunch tomorrow. While fixing dinner, my friend Janis from Tulsa called. She is another person that has had knee replacement surgery. So we spent some time comparing notes. I needed to be reassured that some of the stuff I am experiencing is normal. Apparently the lack of sleep thing is normal, much to my dismay. I will be happy to get my energy level back up as well. At this time everything is a chore to do. Just thinking is exhausting at times. I was reminded today that not only did I have major surgery but major trauma to my system so it will take longer to recover.
After dinner we watched Harry Potter and the Half-Blood-Prince. We are defiantly Potter fans. Dave loves the Blue Ray DVDs as he says it is a film professors best friend, as in all the extras that comes with the DVD that can be used as a teaching tool. We finished out the evening with some football. The Vikings and Bears.
We are expecting snow again tomorrow evening, at least 2 inches. Ah, so much for global warming. Actually I think the snow is beautiful. Especially since we don't get to see it very often around here. Baby girl is driving home from Texas tomorrow. She is hoping to get here before the weather turns nasty. It will be fun to see how her dogs react to the snow as they have never seen snow before.
Just another day in the life of...
