Took a drive up to see my brother and my niece, who I hadn't seen since the surgery. Driving upstate in October is one of the best things you can do to gain back some sanity points. It helps to start out early, have some hot strong coffee, and a large variety of music that doesn't involve screaming.
Gerri and I started out with some radio games, trying to guess the music first. After laying a severe beat down (approximately 25 to 1), we tuned in some Stevie Wonder on the .mp3 player and sang the rest of the way up.
So it took about a month, and right now I'm beat as hell, but I'm finally feeling like myself again. Thank you October.
