Well, my recovery is going pretty well.  I'm more tired than usual but my doc says everything looks great and she's very pleased (saw her last week.)  No sex for 6 more weeks.  DH2be has been great about the no sex.  He's not giving me any pressure or anything, and in response I've been offering him a helping hand about 2x per week.  At some point I might graduate to offering him a bj, but the positioning required for it wasn't going to work out with my abdominal soreness (which is about gone now.)  He's out of town at a dog show this weekend, and it's been a welcome break, because honestly, he's been with me 24/7 since the surgery and I needed a little time.  

Yesterday I got a haircut, wandered around the craft store for as long as I wanted, then went to wal-mart and picked up some things I needed.  It was nice to be able to linger where I wanted for however long I wanted, without him to worry about.  Wedding planning is going great.  My outfit is complete now that my chiffon wrap has arrived.  His outfit is ready to be picked up at the rental place (paid for already and everything)  We purchased his ring, and had mine cleaned and sized, so that's all ready too.  I am making good progress on my paper and seashell flowers.  The paper flowers themselves are all made, I just need to glue the seashell centers into most of the flowers and make my bouquet, and the corsages and buttonholes for the guys.  I've gotten 2 centerpieces totally completed and am happy with the results.

At this point we are just waiting on the re-fi to close on the house, and we can leave town and start heading south.  We can head that way any time, as long as we arrive by Sept 1st.  If we get the house closed and have spare time we will stop and visit with some friends as we head that way, if not, then we won't.  It's all very flexible.   

Just wanted to stop by and let you all know that I'm on the mend and doing okay.  I know I've been pretty absent lately, but I never spend much time on the computer when I am at home, and I've been pretty busy in spite of not having to work (funny how that works out....)  Hope everyone here is doing well!
