They're TINY!!!

Well I'm back from the hospital, where I had breast reduction surgery. I went from an H cup to a D cup.

I'm sore, stoned on percoset and laying here in bed, almost wishing I was back in the hospital with the automatic bed that moves to make me more comfy.

For those who know me in RL, know that I've been wanting to have my breasts done for years. It's only been since our decision to not have any more children that I looked into it. After all, you can't breast feed when your mammary glands have been removed. *smirk*

I'm in a certain amount of discomfort, and the swelling is bad right now. But I'm already much happier with how I look and feel. And my parent have been AMAZING!!! They took care of Moppet from 8am yesterday to 2pm today. They took her to playschool AND dance class. They fed her lots of treats (which they really weren't supposed to do) and kept her occupied. Which is a good thing, since she woke up crying because of nightmares.

I'm going to be laying in bed, surfing, watching DVDs and generally relaxing. At least for today and tomorrow.

*sniff* I have been killed. In Sock Wars. My assassin destroyed me with a beautiful pair of hand knit socks.

But! I have a pair of socks, knitted JUST for me! And I didn't have to make them! *glee*

I will post a picture of my feet in them, just as soon as I dig out my camera.

What is it with obsessions? Mine tend towards crafting. Right now it's all about the knitting. About 6 months ago it was cross-stitch. 6 months before that it was chain maille. And before that, it was paint by numbers. (the NICE ones, with 50 colours, and lots of detail)

So, hopefully this obsession will last long enough for me to knit enough socks for my family members for Xmas. Yes Christmas. I tend to plan for this early, as most of the gifts are handmade.

Inaugural Post

Okay, this is my first "blogger" post.

I'm a SAHM, with a precocious 5yr old daughter (AKA Moppet) and a loving husband (AKA Cherub). I work for a craft mail order company answering phones on weekends and holidays.

My favorite forum is Krewmembers (see link). My favourite web comics are too numerous to mention.

I'm currently disguised as a suburban housewife. Who likes goth, vampires, Discworld, slash fanfic, leather, dark chocolate, folk and goth music, science fiction and fantasy.

I don't exactly fit in where I live. But like I said, I'm in disguise!
