And so we’re back , from outer space !

We’re back , me and my Otter Sister and we’re crazier than ever πŸ˜‰

It looks like our brains don’t appreciate being put under anesthesia and especially not when they were given only one month and a half to try to bounce back after the first one .

But on the other side this gives us a perfect excuse to forget to turn the dishwasher on , or run it twice in a row or not even loading it at all , and to not follow and participate in conversations that we’re not interested in at all ! Ah Ah Bad Turtle πŸ™‚

Add to that the effects of instant onset of surgical menopause coupled with the hottest summer ever in a non-air conditioned house (yesterday we measured 30ΒΊC/86ΒΊF inside !) 😦 . We had a few days in a row close to 40ΒΊC/104ΒΊF outside and it’s impossible to cool the house even if we pull down all the shades all day long and open every single door and window all night long .

And no , I’m not complaining , just saying what’s been going on , and I know that a few of you had it much hotter and a few others would love just a bit of this hotness .

It’s a bit colder in my basement ( a cool πŸ˜‰ Β 25ΒΊC/77ΒΊF) but I’m still not allowed to be walking up and down the stairs all day long .

So I can’t wait for the next few days when it’s supposed to cool down a bit , and when I get rid of all the stitches and will be allowed to start showering as freely and as frequently as I want to πŸ™‚ Partial showers as clean as they might get you don’t cut it in the relaxing and refreshing power of a full on jet of cold water .

Through all of this the Husband came up trumps and my little otter girl – even if she is in the midst of “the getting back to college in a few days stressing out period” and “adjusting” (hard , hard work) to not being a teen anymore (she just turned 20 a few days ago) kept to her usual awesome Β πŸ™‚

Thank you all for your good wishes and thoughts ❀

I am OK , surgery went very very well and only two weeks later I feel so much better than before . And now that my center of gravity is back where it is supposed to be (and not shifted by my sizable “bump”) I am closer to my dream of learning to surf πŸ™‚

I will not go into further details either on a post or on comments , but I will answer any questions or concerns you might have if you will e-mail me πŸ˜‰

I’ve been missing you and I’m looking forward to (very very slowly – my brain is busted and sitting at the table where my “no longer a laptop” is , becomes very uncomfortable after a while) come update with what you all have been doing in your blogs πŸ™‚

So glad to be back

Turtle Hugs ❀

edited to add Β : and of course my two older kids are being awesome as well , just didn’t mention them because as they are living in their own houses they are lucky to escape the craziness on a daily basis πŸ™‚ Β πŸ™‚ Β πŸ™‚

  1. Dearest Turtle, I know cats are not a turtle’s best friend, but this cat has missed you very much. Mom and I (And little cutesie pie ZuZu) are so happy you’re up and about and send you our good wishes for a marvelous and restful recuperation. Love, Roxie D.🐒 😺

  2. Very glad you’re back and healing. I’ve been a bad blogger this last month too, my only excuse I’ve been travelling. But do enjoy your natural heat (while it lasts) and lack of air-conditioning: I’m in the USA right now, which I adore, except for the freezing cold artificial blasts of air in all homes and indoor public places. Physically stressful and unhealthy 😦

  4. Hello Turtle. I wish you good health and a swift recovery. I had a full hysterectomy when I was 45 and it was the best thing I did. Once I was fully healed, my life was so much better and I hope yours will be too. Remember that your wound needs to heal. Hugs from Texas. xxxx
