Well into week 2 of no shaving, my legs are seeming like a field of wheat springing up in season and are just as itchy.

It’s been over a week post op from back surgery from which I’ve been told not to bend at the waist, stoop, pick up anything off the floor, or lift anything over the weight of a gallon of milk for 4 to 6 weeks. I never realized how many things I took for granted with regards to how a body normally works such as being able to shave my legs. The hairs are getting soft for goodness sake! Soon I might be able to style them. LOL
Other things affected by not being able to bend at the waist or bend down to pick things up… getting dressed. Yep. I’ve figured out how to put on my skivvi*s but am still not at all ready to try to put on pants instead of dresses(plus it might hurt my back). Forget about anything by my slip on shoes for the next several weeks. Our duplex is littered with toys and my kids have been great picking them up but then POOF! All the toys are back on the floor in no time! Plugging things into outlets is nearly impossible.
Doing dishes, laundry, sweeping, and mopping have been relegated to the rest of the members of the house. Yesterday, my youngest son picked up his toys in the living room, my oldest swept the floor, and my daughter mopped! It was so great to watch their teamwork and know even at 7, 5, and 4 kids are capable of doing this! Who knew I would have put them to work sooner. LOL
So really it’s not all bad. I don’t have to do much of the housework for a while. My husband is babying me to a point(I have figured out my limits like he’s not going to hand feed me grapes or anything ha!). My kids are working hard to take care of mommy and the house. And I can still get myself dressed. Now I’m just excited for the days I get to rent a bush hog and take care of these scary harry’s! LOL
