The ‘After I’m Done Being Ill’ To Do List


Ya know what’s not awesome? The weird stuff our bodies do to us. My body has decided to grow things it’s not supposed to in places it’s not supposed to. In turn I’ve been on bedrest and pain medication in order to let myself stay stagnant. So far I haven’t gotten worse. 

Surgery is getting nearer and I am getting more impatient every day. So. Here’s a list of things I plan to do as soon as I’m allowed after recovery. 

  1. Deep clean my house
  2. Shampoo carpets
  3. Winterize home and greenhouse
  4. Roof greenhouse- wind-proof that bastard
  5. Finish learning code
  6. Start back on my blog and other writing
  7. Reorganize basement 
  8. Start walking kids to school again
  9. Finish planning Scout year
  10. Fix chimney
  11. Geocache at the beach
  12. Fishing!
  13. Finish collecting wood for winter

Some of these may sound silly or mundane as they’re maintaining a home or things you can do on a day off. But I can’t. I can hold a book for a little bit before things get loopy. I can’t pick up my kids or drive. I’m temporarily disabled and as much as I always joked about not wanting to get out of bed for a week, this is not the way. Argh. 

But some of the nice things is that I have kitties cuddle with me.
