I treated myself

I felt so good after surgery that I just wanted to go on with my life and do everything that I did before. I came home from the hospital on a Sunday and I went and ironed on Sunday afternoon. I mean, when I got home I did do a lot of resting. I was tired, but I still went on, tried to go on with my life. I had always put my family, my husband and my daughter first in my life, as most mother's do. I decided it's my turn, that it was time for me to take time for myself. So I did everything that made me feel good. I treated myself a lot. One of the things I did was I had a massage and it just felt wonderful. And I did all kinds of things to treat me, to make me feel better.
