Just sitting here counting the minutes until it's time to go to bed and "sleep fast" as my little sister used to say when she wanted the next day to hurry up and arrive. That's me today. I will finally have my hand surgery tomorrow and I am soooooo ready.

All the laundry is done, the house is totally clean and I have at least three days of meals done, perhaps more. When I went to the market today I stocked up extra on those things Glenn likes best.

I can't have anything after midnight tonight but my surgery isn't until after 1:00 tomorrow afternoon, so I plan to have a small snack about 10 tonight so I won't try to eat the door off the hinges when I get back home.

I cleaned out the freezer today and found part of a turkey carcass from December that I forgot I had. I took it apart and put it in the Nesco along with some carrots, celery and onions for turkey stock. It's simmering away and the aroma is killing me, it smells so good.

Thanks, everyone, for the well wishes. Right now I'm eating a nice bowl of lovely fresh cherries and listening to the coyotes barking outside. They roam and "carry on" this time of the night. They are very prevalent in our neighborhood.

Katie, please add me to the list of well-wishers for your surgery. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Knowing the pain you are feeling right now I am excited for you when it is all over and you have the use of your wrists and hands back.
