When life gets in the way of reading

Sometimes life gets in the way of reading.

I’ve just had surgery on my knee. I thought this would be a great time to catch up on reading, watching shows on netflix and relaxing. There has been a little netflixing and reading, but because of the medication I’m taking my ability to focus is limited.

I start to read and I just drift off. Perhaps the sleep is needed right now for recovery. I just thought I’d still have some brain power to be able to focus. I’m also excited to read the book Ive just started – The Affair by Sheryl Browne. The Affair is off to a great start and I’m already hooked, but I find I’m having to take it slowly.

It’s also a little difficult to get comfortable. Laying on my back can hurt my knee after a while, but it’s also a gamble to lay on my side. I’m hoping in a few more days I’ll be in a little less pain. My ability to concentrate will be improved. I’ll be back to my reading and blog loving self.

Today’s post is a little different. I think it’s good to acknowledge that sometimes things get in the way. Sometimes circumstances aren’t exactly what we expect. It’s ok. We all have days or moments when we are a little off. Right now my body needs time to repair. I just didn’t expect my mind to take a break too.

I’ll be back before you know it.


Hunter taking care of me.
