5 Silly Things to Do While Recovering from Surgery

There are 5 smart things to do while you’re recovering from surgery but sometimes you need a break from being smart and productive. Here are 5 silly things, because sometimes being silly is smart, too!

  1. Use the time to whiten your teeth! Resting in bed is the perfect time to have whitening trays in place. No one will see you and when you’ve recovered, you’ll miraculously be sporting a brighter smile.
  2. Watch all the dumb movies you missed on initial release (Netflix streaming is awesome for this). Watch them as long as you can stand it and feel guilt free when you ditch one 15 minutes into it.  I recommend, in particular, Hot Tub Time Machine.
  3. Read a crappy romance novel. It requires zero brain cells and makes you appreciate even more the good lit you’re used to reading.
  4. Coat yourself with self-tanner. Since you’re not going anywhere it’s a good time to experiment and discover which shade of orange looks best on you.
  5. Wear a lot of eyeliner and mascara. I almost put on fake eyelashes yesterday when I discovered I had them. It’s oddly uplifting to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and laugh at my Tammy Faye Bakker makeover.

  1. You forgot: read shelter mags dropped off by local design blogger whose fiance has threatened to wear bunny ears (you know the ones) at wedding if the stacks don’t shrink. 😉

    I’m joking, but I can’t send my beloved mags to the recycling bin. I have to pass them on to someone. Perhaps the twittersphere will know of them kids who’d like to cut them up for a project or something.

    I’m not planning on being confined to bed soon, but if I was, these all sound like fun projects!

    Thanks Marijean… I was going stir crazy and had looked at all the good ones left on Netflix. Another one to add to the list… watch the entire series of a cable show – I’m on episode 59 of 202 of “24” – Jack Bauer can do anything and not die.
