Today is my first day back at work after the big gallbladder surgery. It just happens to be the first day after winter break, also, so there’s a lot of “How was your break?” I’ve gotten to tell the story of the middle of the night trip to the ER quite a few times.
Speaking of recovery, can I just tell you how amazing yoga pants are? Particularly these brand new ones I just bought myself that can pass as work pants as long as I have the band on top hidden. I tried wearing “real” pants once last week, and was regretting it after two hours. Because all my pants hit me right at my most painful surgical site, real pants + gallbladder surgery recovery = pain. So I am so very pleased with the black yoga pants I found yesterday that allow me to look halfway professional, and at least don’t require that I unfasten the button and zipper while sitting for extended periods of time.
I was actually considering getting one of those pregnancy band things, but yoga pants have saved the day! (Or the week, rather, as I’ll be wearing them everyday until I heal.)
It’s taking a little bit of effort to get my brain back into work mode, which is a big part of why I’m blogging right now and not calling clients. Heh. I’m sure I’ll get there, though, and with these fantastic pants I can at least think about something other than my belly button being in pain.
