I'm technically on spring break this week, but it's not one I'm looking forward to. The weather is terrible (these photos were taken last Saturday, which was a beautiful day, of course)- cold and rainy. And tomorrow I am having sinus surgery, a septoplasty and turbinoplasty to be exact. Y'all, I am scared to death, seriously! Kinda like horrific birth stories, mention that you are having surgery to fix a deviated septum just brings people out of the woodwork. "Let me tell you about MY surgery," they start, before launching into a terrifying tale of blood and gore and pain.
All, that is to say that I'm not exactly sure what my blogging schedule is going to look at. I've gathered up some posts. I've got a few, fun guest posts planned, and I guess we will see how I feel and take it one day at a time. At first I was a little bummed about spending my spring break in bed, napping and watching movies and surfing the web, but then I had to be totally honest with myself. Really, that's not too different from what I would have done (except with the addition of bloody gauze and pain pills), so I can't be too bitter.
|So many inappropriate photos as a result of the windy conditions! I spared you.|
You are welcome.
Vainly, I am afraid of my nose looking "different" post surgery. I kept hearing "Empty Nose Syndrome" and imagining my nose collapsing like Michael Jackson's did or Stevie Nicks' after years of cocaine abuse.
For the record, it's totally not your nose collapsing in on itself, but it's still a scary name! Plus, I'm pretty attached to this nose, despite the constant sinus infections and insane snoring. I'm assured that structurally, from the outside, it won't change. But my ENT also incredulously informed me that I had the WORST deviated septum he had ever seen. So if someone were to, oh I don't know, have his or her beloved nose collapse in on itself, it would be me.
P.S. Have you ever seen a cuter spring dress?? Cats. Hearts. Red. Turquoise. Eshakti just blows my mind sometimes! New customers can get $25 dollars off their first order and free customization. If you haven't tried Eshakti yet now's a great time because they have some super cute spring dresses available! I am eyeing this one or this one next!
