It doesn't get much better...

How much do I love my hubby?? Let me count the ways!!

Yesterday was our anniversary...and yes...we went to the store and picked up THIS:

It's been very tough to blog lately as I've been putting in 12-14 hour days with work. For that matter, the last few weeks have been tough even to work and function and do anything but work.

BUT...This is about to change.

I mentioned that I have a procedure coming up, and I am. I'm having a surgery on Thursday. Part of my recovery when I get home will be that I need to be able to sit in a recliner. I don't know that this is necessarily a "perscription" but have been told that it is very helpful. Besides, Grandy loves recliners and being able to put her feet up. She has a sectional that has 3 and none of them work (we have a friend who can't seem to stop destroying things) and so now I have the perfect excuse for one.

So, Friday was my last day at work for about 8 weeks. Doctor says "Grandy has GOT to get her heart rate down". Well, Hubby and I went out yesterday...our anniversary...and baught 2 recliners (his & hers of course) and this glorious laptop. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!! trying to relax today, what is Grandy doing? She has her feet up in the recliner, is watching The Producers on TV, and catching up with all of you. You're going to get to see more of me for a few days...then I'll be out of commission for a few days...but I'll be back after that.

Sound alright with you all?

Thanks so much for all your arguments on the wood. It helped me in so many ways!! :)

You know... The recliners might have wood in them too.

I upgraded to this laptop because I needed to recuperate from surgery and had to keep my feet up. Too bad it arrived the day I went back to work!

It's been a great thing with the leg the way it is now. Enjoy the freedom and good luck with the surgery!

Methinks the man's a keeper for sure! LOL
Best wishes on the surgery and here's to many hours of happy blogging during your recovery!
Hugs and blessings,

Hey! Good for you! I have been eying that very computer. I hope your recovery goes well.

I hope the surgery goes well. Congrats on the new laptop! It's so pretty :) Be careful....laptops are so addicting. They have a tendency to follow you everywhere. Including the bathroom! ;)

Christina said...

ooooh - awesome! Congratulations! Here's to a successful surgery and a very relaxing recuperation spent on the recliner with your new toy.

Other than the fact that you have surgery on the horizon, what a great day you had, huh? My kingdom for a recliner...and a new laptop!!
Good luck on the surgery...have a quick and safe recovery!!!

Dens said...

Woo Hoo!! I knew he'd cave...I mean..ummm...well, you know...hehehe.. now you're all set. You can relax and blog your way through recovery. I'm not that far away, so you can call me if you need anything...even just to jab when you're bored...even if it's 2am...
Glad you had such a great anniversary.

Two recliners and a laptop? Sounds like a good day!

Mrs. G. said...

You are an official hot blogger now! Congrats on receiving the greatest toy of all time.

What a sweet hubs you have.

It may not be a prescription but it will definitely ease your pain!

OHmommy said...

Nice gift!

Good luck with surgery. Will be thinking about you!

Tina Coruth said...

Congratulations! Matching recliners and a laptop - it doesn't get better than that. If there is a "great guy" award, your hubby deserves it!

Here's to smooth sailing through your surgery and recovery! :-)

krissy said...

Happy Anniversary!

I'm so glad you will be around more but I am so not glad that you are having surgery! Well, I suppose if it makes you all better it is for the best but.....well, I guess I've just confused the shit out of myself! Typical!

Hope the recovery is restful!

Michele said...

Congrats, Mary! The laptop is GORGEOUS and you soooooooooo deserve it!! Here's to lots of leisurely days with your feet propped up and laptop snuggled on your lap, burning a red hot trail on the cyber highway! :-)


Thanks to the husband!! Happy Anniversary to you!!
