I've only had one other surgery - long, long ago. I had my gallbladder removed because I had gallstones. I remember the day I came home from the hospital - I was alone at my house. My mom had Alli who was around 3 years old at the time. I was in bed all day, sleeping on and off, watching TV. I believe it's the only other time I've really been on pain killers for an extended amount of time.

The TV show I was watching? QVC. And they were doing specials on quilts that day. The "Today's Special Value" was a quilt, and then they had a few hours throughout the day that showcased quilts. I love quilts. I was on pain killers. Do you know where I'm going with this? Yeah, a few days later I received my NINE quilts via UPS delivery. Yes, I bought 9 quilts. At that point in my life I lived alone with Alli. I had no need for 9 quilts! I ended up sending 6 back and keeping 3. One of them was my favorite quilt of all time, I kept it for years until it fell apart so much that I finally had to let it go.

So tonight, I took a pain killer, and laid down to go to sleep. I turned the TV on to watch until sleep took over and what channel did I end up on? QVC. I have not ordered from QVC for years. I watched a presentation and suddenly I can't imagine NOT getting a really cool cup - spill proof. They come in a variety of colors, and they come in sets of 2. So I kept watching, trying to talk myself out of them. I don't need more cups! I'm getting rid of stuff, not buying stuff! But I really could use them. And since there are 5 of us, I would need to get 3 sets of 2. Should I get all the same color? OR different colors for each person?

I got up, came to the computer to place an order, and remembered the quilts. Instead of ordering the cups, I wrote this post. I will schedule it to post later since I already posted once today... but I need to get back to bed and TURN THE CHANNEL!

This is a really funny blog, Katie!! ...or it would be if it hadn't hit home with me. I've discovered HSN! ACK!! I now have several sets of Green Boxes! And a really cool little DVD player. I think I better edit out that channel on my tv....

However....9 quilts??? It was probably the drugs!

Hahahahaha - nine quilts. It would be fun to read the transcript of your thoughts that day. "Well, I could certainly USE nine quilts. But is nine going to be enough? If nine quilts is good, wouldn't 15 be even better? I better hurry up and order -- they might run out! OOOOO.....look at the blue one!"

You are too funny -- great post!
