I'M GETTING ALL READY ............

Monday morning I will check in to the hospital at 6:00 AM (GOOD GRIEF!!) and I think I am just about ready....

I told you about getting a pedicure so I'll have pretty, twinkle toes while I am there....

I also had my nails done in a very light pink, almost clear with just a touch of color, really.....So when the nurse starts looking for veins to put my IV in, by golly, my nails are going to be pretty!!

I had my hair trimmed shorter than I normally wear it so that, not only are my twinkle toes and fingernails going to look pretty, my hair will have less tendency to stand STRAIGHT UP while I am in the bed!!

I have ALL OF MY WASHING done!!!!! WOW.....I'm not sure I have EVER had it ALL done at the same time. I just figured if I had it done, I wouldn't EVEN be worrying while I am recouping.

The ironing is finished (well except for those that are stuffed into another know, the things we don't wear very often.) GREAT SCOTT...I am impressed with MYSELF! lol

I made a couple of casseroles to freeze. Nothing fancy...this one is just noodles, Cream of Chicken, onions, ground sirloin with celery added. It will taste good one night with a salad, tho. And sweet hubby will be so happy to have something already fixed and he won't have to do much cooking.

This one is MEATY BAKED BEANS and cheese. It is one of our favorites and you just add the ingredients that you want and you are good to go. I'll have a green salad, salsa and tortillas with it.

My house is fairly clean...enuf so that it suits me. Out here in West Texas, we always have a little dust on things but it's not too bad this time of year. With just hubby and I, we seldom have too messy a house so just a quick run of the sweeper and a little dusting and....we're done!

Good Morning BJ,
I'm here for some coffee. Oh my goodness, I must have missed something. I had no idea you were going in the Hospital. I do hope it's nothing serious. I will be praying for you and for a fast recovery. Your Casseroles sure do look good. I have done a post this morning, so when you have time be sure to stop by and visit me. I'm sorry I had no idea you were going in the Hospital. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

What a nice feeling for you to have everything done. So you know what this means DON'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES!!!!
Being women and the great home makers we are it is very hard to just not do anything but truly take this time to just relax. You will be in my prayers. Make sure you post as soon as you feel up to it so we know you are okay my friend. I will miss you posting because I can always count on you having a new post for the day, I look forward to it.

You must read Annie @ Saucerful of Secrets... she has a Mr Depp story to tell... that will make you feel bright eyed and bushy tailed again!

Much love to you.

I hope you have a quick recovery from your surgery. Will be sending you my thoughts and prayers.

Joyce said...

Will pray for you and good luck. I never thought about hving my hair, nails, and toes done before surgery before. I think I will try it the next time I have to spend time in a hospital.

Love and Hugs,

Sweet BJ,

I didn't realize you had to have surgery. You've made some delicious looking casseroles for your hubby. That will make things a lot easier.

I will be praying for a successful surgery and a fast recovery. Take care.

Blessings and hugs,

I hope you have a quick and good recovery. Wishing you only good thoughts :)

Tammy said...

It looks as if you are ready as you can be!

Prayers for a quick recovery time!


PAT said...

Had no idea you were going into the hospital! My thoughts and prayers are with you!!

Your preparations sound like what I did 9 years ago this month, when I was going in for surgery. Casseroles and cleaning and a bit of time for other things. It sure made all the difference, during recuperation!

Thinking of you, BJ!

Jackie said...

BJ, I am praying that you recover nicely. Take care and I hope to see you up posting soon.

By the way your meals look scrumptious.

Jo and JD said...

I will be keeping you in my prayers. Hopefully all will move along as newly scheduled and you can put this behind you.

I have to say you are very much the organized woman. Your hubby has to feel quite special that you have taken care of all of these tasks before your surgery to make life easier for him.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
