Terrific - Terrifying Tuesday

My dog is so hilarious, she thinks she is a small dog.  She thinks she fits on the ottoman.

"What?  I am tiny."

My 60 pound lap dog.  Isn't she pretty?  Silly girl.

Last night I put the finishing touches on the heart-man onsies.

Now I just need to get them in the mail to Will and Daniel.  Sweet boys.

I hadn't painted a t-shirt in years.  I am pleased with how these turned out, even though they are not perfect...I think it gives them charm.

So, about 9 months ago I had surgery.  As it turns out I will be having surgery again at the end of February.  This time it is a scheduled surgery and this time it will be a little more invasive.  I am having some fibroid tumors removed from my uterus.  The surgery will be similar to a woman having a cesarean section so in the grand scheme of surgery types not a gigantic deal, I know women have c-sections everyday.

As it turns out I think I find unplanned surgery a little less stressful.  Last time I was in pain, I went to the doctor, they gave me some meds and put me to sleep and I woke up feeling much better.  This time I am not hurting and I know the surgery is coming which gives my creative mind too much time to think about it.  Last night I had a terrifying nightmare during which I was awake for the surgery and couldn't move or talk.  It was a little scary.  Sigh.  The only comic relief to the dream was a couple of people making funny faces at me.  At least I can still laugh, right?

When I am awake I am not scared and I am not stressing too much...in fact while I was falling asleep last night I was thinking about what to pack for our Italy trip.  The surgery wasn't even on my mind.  Funny how dreams work, isn't it?

This morning I was up and busy early and wearing a cute outfit that includes this awesome necklace my sister gave me for Christmas.

She has one too.  We call it our sisters necklace.  We are silly.  Thanks for the necklace Sissy!

Have a wonderful Tuesday friends!
