...or should I say, "SCREEECH!!!"
Okay, contrary to what you all might believe, I'm not sleeping my days away. I wish I could say that. I've been getting up early to the sounds of a screech owl that lives in the tall palm tree in my parents' backyard. My dad finally got a good pic of him, and when I finally get back to my real computer at home I'll try to post it. There are actually two. If I happen to get up in the middle of the night to smoke or something, they scare the hell out of me, flying out of their nest on the prowl, swooping by me with their loud screeching. I'm finally getting used to it.
That is my excitement right now. So far, every day is getting better, and I should be home by next Wednedsay. I feel like I could go now, but the 'rents won't have it until my first follow-up with the doc, so I'm being a good patient. I'm actually milking it for all it's worth. I've also discovered a new ice cream: Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Panic. It's worse than any addiction to pain meds I could ever have. Once this carton is gone, that's IT. NO MORE. I swear. I mean, really, how much do I have to eat to keep up my strength? How much strength do I need to just sit/lie and watch TV or read? I know they mean well but seriously.
I've watched several movies and read two books in this first week. I'll do reviews later, as I wouldn't want to bore you guys all in one sitting.
One movie I WILL mention, however, is Miss Potter. It recounts the life of Beatrix Potter, author and creator of "The Tales of Peter Rabbit" and such other children's books. I LOVED it and instantly thought of Alkelda. Girl, if you haven't seen it, I really think you'd love it. Rene Zellweger did a fantastic job.
Hope everyone's having a great week.
