back to work i go

Other than the minor setback of a terrible rash on my face (we think it's from antibiotics), my recovery is going well. I went in this morning for my first post-op appointment, and my doctor suctioned all of the packing out of my face. Talk about a weird experience. I won't go into detail, but you know the tool they use at the dentist's office to suck the crap out of your mouth when you're having your teeth cleaned? Yes. That. I have to go back several more times to get "cleaned out" in the next couple of weeks.

The good bill of health means that I'm back at work, and I have a feeling it's going to be a long five days since I've grown used to afternoon naps.

More to come later this week, with an update (or lack of) on the adoption process, what it feels like to hit the six-month mark in the wait (!) and our featured Etsy item of the week. Please remember that we are still accepting artwork and crafts for our site. If you have anything to donate, you can email me at fromiftowhen (at)

Hope everyone is having a lovely Monday. :)

Glad you're on the mend. Was the surgery better or worse than you thought it would be? You sound like you're doing pretty well!

Glad to hear your recovery is going well. I cringed when you described the suction. I hope it's not too bad.

That suction procedure sounds pretty interesting. Hope your nap free week isn't too long!
