Update on knee replacement surgery. No shaving for 3 months due to risk of infection in joint from a nick! I look like a cactus! :hide

I tried to deforest my legs with duct tape, but it did not work. I look like an Italian woman from the 60's. I remember being amazed living in Italy as a 12-year-old that women actually had armpit hair! DH had no problem with not shaving since he had a beard for both his knee replacements. I can't even get a wax job because I can't lay on my stomach with my knee yet. :hit

I have a date with my razor on June 19th. Or to get waxed - depends on what surgeon recommends when I see him on Friday. This may be the worst part of the replacement recovery.
:tongue I have hidden DH's glasses.

What about Nair? Just keep it away from the incision, so you’ll have a hairy stripe…..

For a meal for the inspector, you could make lasagna now and put it in the freezer. Make tacos one night, grill hamburgers, salad, potato soup, garnish with chopped green onions, bacon, cheese, serve with garlic French bread. I’m just throwing ideas at you.

Hello Dolly Bars

1 stick melted butter
1 cup crushed Graham crackers
1 cup coconut
1 cup pecan pieces
1cup chocolate chips
1 can condensed milk

Grease 9x13 pan. Spread Graham crackers, pour melted butter over it.
Sprinkle evenly coconut, then pecan pieces, then chocolate chips.
Pour condensed milk over, making sure to cover all, evenly.

Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 minutes

Cut around edges to loosen. Cut into bars while still warm.

Those Hello Dolly Bars sound wonderful! I wonder if those are the bars that show up at the church socials that I love so much. I'm too quiet/shy to ask who made them or what they were so I never got a recipe, but I love them!! Always grab a couple for myself. DH won't eat anything with coconut, so I would have to eat them all myself... Can you freeze them?

Saw the surgeon on Friday.

HE SAID I CAN SHAVE MY LEGS! :bow
I can stop saying "Grazie" and "chiao" and have cancelled my Italian lessons. :weee I can also go in the pool.
:celebrate


The surgeon is super happy with my progress, knee movement, and range of motion. Saw the x-ray of the joint. DH says he plans to get me a second knee, 2 hips, and 2 ankles so I will be able to live forever and take care of him! :old The surgeon is soooo handsome. Too bad his patient looked like an old wrinkly cactus. :gig He is married with a couple small children. Lucky woman. ;)

Getting my paperwork ready for the Dorper flock inspector. ADSBS sent me a box with the grading tags and paperwork for the inspector to fill out. I don't have to put the tags in the ears so will just put them with the registration papers. My sheep lose their tags so easily I don't want to lose one of those tags. All unused tags must be returned to the Association and they will send me a check for the postage. DS1 was outside with DH this morning discussing how they will run sheep. He also told DH they need to unhook and remove the squeeze in order to use the other chute.

DGD1's birthday tomorrow. Have to get her a small gift to open to go along with the check. Have stopped shopping for toys and am just writing checks. I do have a Barbie doll put away that I can wrap for her. DD1 still wants me to make her a dollhouse with the furniture I made for her. We use a large IKEA shelf unit and put up wallpaper, carpet, etc. I enjoy making it. Made a huge one for DD1, and for my niece. DD2 was too old for dolls when she came to us, but when she was smaller I made her some doll furniture. I think she still has it. When DGD3 is older I will make one for both DGD2 and 3 to share.

Yes you can freeze them. You can also make half the pan with coconut and the other half with no coconut.
