How are you going to pass time while you recover?

If you are going to watch TV , what shows will you watch?  I have Netflix and Hulu so I can watch some older programs. What else?  Electronic scrap booking?

Organize your Pinterest. Partake in some day time TV. Window shopping for bikinis (Victorias Secret). Watch How-to YouTube videos. Dexter is a fantastic show if you have Netflix!! SLEEP!!

I watched a lot of TV and movies and got caught up with a lot of shows I wished I could watch. If you have Netflix and don't currently watch Homeland its fantastic, you can watch season 1 and 2. It's intense and you lose track of time. Comedies are good to keep you happy. I did some online shopping for Compression Garments. I was going to shop but decided against it as it appears your body changes daily and I had (and still don't) know where I'm going to end up. The swelling is insane! I love the Christmas present shopping online that is a terrific idea! I also read two books.

I heard that Homeland is good! I will write that down!

Ok, so here is a funny confession: I was still on Lortab when I was Xmas shopping online, and when the packages arrived a couple days later, I wrapped them immediately (still on Lortab) so that the kids wouldn't find my stash and get into them. Well, by the time Christmas rolled around, I was off pain meds and totally surprised by every package the kids opened...I only vaguely remembered what I had ordered "under the influence!"

Mu husband stayed home with me the first week, and we watched a lot of movies, or so he tells me. I was honestly so out of it, between recovering from general anesthesia, and being on heavy narcotics (Lortab 10/500), that I remember very vaguely what was going on. I think he talked me into some old Arnold Schwarzenegger movies! Once I was less sleepy and out of it, I did my Christmas shopping online (my surgery was in November).

My favorite pass time was TV, magazines and word search puzzles.  Well that was when I was off the heavy pain meds..LOL

I then moved to cutting cute outfits out of magazines.  I was planning my summer shopping trips for my new clothing.  I also did a little online shopping which was fun!!

Oh I love that idea! One of my hobbies is finding outfits I love and re-creating them for cheap! Great idea. Will search for outfits to recreate and do some online shopping :)
