Confined to Bed and Books

I was in the bed all day Thursday and Friday because of pain. That in itself is very frustrating and draining, but I feel better today. I am having to sleep in what used to be my brother's room because my hips and legs have been bothering me. His bed is a little firmer than mine, so I've slept better. I was waking up about six times a night in my bed. I had gotten so used to it that I thought it was normal. My little nephew knows I should be in my room, so he's been saying, "Ou not be in my daddy's bed! Ou in your ur(your) bed!" while pointing his little finger at me. :) I gently remind him it's just for a little while.

I went to my surgeon on Monday, and he gave me a cortisone shot in my right foot to help with the pain. I was grateful for that! It has helped some. I am trying to post at least once a week because it helps me to write, and I like to look back on things.

I am working on the book about my life! I have been for about two months. Those of you who are longtime readers will know this has always been a dream and goal of mine. I am excited! There will be lots of things in there that I haven't mentioned on the blog. The book will be raw and real, for sure.

I've also read some great books recently, so I am planning to post about those soon!
