Met with my supervisor yesterday for my evaluation. I received the "Expected Level of Performance." I have resigned myself to be average. I'm okay with average. The last couple of years, I took being average really poorly. I'm proud of myself this year, no crying and no going home to sleep off the crying (not like I have the leave left for that!)
My finger is healing nicely. It turns out that I will not be able to fully use it until six weeks after the surgery. The joint itself doesn't hurt. Every once in a while it gets a little sore depending on how much I use it. I'm allowed to use it some, but I need to be careful not to over-do it. The incision isn't healed yet. I go the stitches out on Monday. They used nylon stitches. The stitches were the worse part as far as I'm concerned. They were too hard and they pulled too much. The incision is at the base of my thumb and it's a really bad area. Part of the cut is still partially open. The doctor's office gave me these things that look like little pieces of tape. I call them my sticker stitches. I have to use them for about three more days. They are much less painful than the nylon stitches. So, now all I have on the incision is those sticker stitches on the one side and a band-aid to keep the dirt out. I try to take the band-aid off for a while in the evenings so that it can get air, but it feels really weird not having anything on it. I have these really horrible pictures in my head of the incision pulling open and my thumb falling off. I know that's not going to happen, but I guess I'm being a bit of a baby. I'm also being a baby because I haven't been able to knit for two weeks!!! :( I might try a bit of knitting and see if it doesn't hurt too much after I stop using the sticker stitches and the incision seems to have healed. I really can't wait for that. I'm tired of "picking my nose." LOL
Well, I think I've droned on enough about my miserable life. I'm sure you are all bored to tears. Don't get the tears on the keyboard. They are a pain to clean out and you don't want to mess up your keyboard because I'm so boring! :)

More bad news... My memere (french for grandmother) passed away last week. I was unable to travel to Massachusetts to the funeral because I was too ill. At the time I would have had to leave, my doctor was considering hospitalizing me. I am going to miss my memere. She was a very sweet lady and I loved her greatly.
I'm very excited about the brunch at ppsassygrl's on Saturday. And then Saturday evening, my entire family is going to Medieval Times. We even bought royalty tickets so we get to sit in the front row! That's very exciting. :)
Fred was really sweet while I was sick. He was stuck working 12-13 hour days everyday, so I didn't get to see much of him. I was a pain because I was miserable and scared. (I'd never been that sick in my entire life.) He bought me "Pride and Prejudice", "Walk the Line", "Sense and Sensibility" and "Prime" to watch this weekend. They were all really good movies. I watched "Pride and Prejudice" twice this weekend and am dying to get another copy of the book. I really want to read it again. Yesterday we picked up "10 things I hate about you", "Karate Kid", "Say Anything" and Season 4 of Charmed. So those should help me keep busy after the surgery. I also bought "Jane Eyre", "Mansfield Park" and "Sense and Sensibility" to keep me busy reading. But I will look forward to calls from friends while I'm home. I promise I won't keep you on the phone long because I'm not much of a phone talker. But it will be nice to hear some voices. :)
Okay... Well, don't expect another entry for a couple of weeks while I'm recuperating! :)
