I’m not even a little embarrassed to admit that I just made a entire batch well I split it in half but half a batch of this extremely delicious coconut chocolate mousse with coconut whipped cream before two O’clock pm.
Now to my credit I actually slept last night! I mean I sleep every night but I actually slept from 10pm till 11am!! I woke up once to pee but other than that I actually got sleep!! After the initial shock of rest wore off I contemplated working out right away and getting it out of the way or waiting and I figured I better just get it done so I did. Then on top of that I made coffee and scrambled eggs for lunch/breakfast and I realized while drinking my coffee that I could drink my coffee without it even hurting!!
It’s the little wins.
Which is why I decided to make this delicious chocolate mousse and whipped cream. Which is currently chilling in my fridge for the next four hours but trust me come four O’clock that bad boy is mine!
I am also extremely glad that it is Sunday!! I am feeling better which means that when my sister comes home tonight or tomorrow whichever one that I will certainly be ready to go out!
But for today I will watch movies and play the Sims 3 pets which is my major addiction as well as watching movies all day. And cooking. Well baking really but whatever.
Also I did do something yesterday I made these.
Devils food cake cupcakes.
And consequently took an hour walk to compensate for eating half the batter.
Oh and that’s homemade vanilla buttercream frosting.
Not even embarrassed.

So something new happened yesterday.
Last night rather.
I actually slept!!
Sure I was in a fair amount of pain that hasn’t changed but I mean I really slept like if it weren’t for my pain management alarms waking me up I believe I would have slept more than the normal four hours!
I also am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel as in, this pain may end soon kinda light.
I was so happy when I woke up and realized that it was past 3 am in the morning then the pain started in again and I didn’t even mind it!
So that happened and then yesterday you know how I was in a “baking mood?“
yeah I must have just been in a oh I want to look at blogs and articles about things that I could bake then go back to sleep because that is exactly what I did. I slept literally all day yesterday well not just sleep I kinda laid around on the couch and dozed in and out of sleep. I mean this whole recovery period I haven’t felt as tired as I was yesterday. Any way it paid off because Sarah showed up around seven and Bret being the awesome man that he is took us to Jason’s deli for dinner and paid for all three of us! I was quite impressed. Anyway fast forward to this morning I am feeling very rested and Sarah just went off to run to get the car. LITERALLY. She wanted to go for a run and her car is parked at my place, we spent the night at Bret’s, and off she went. So I figured I’d squeeze a blog entry in before she gets back pick me up. I don’t remember if I said this before but I was suppose to go to the beach this weekend with my sister and mother.
Well that’s not happening anymore. After talking to my sister and having her see how miserable I really was she and I both agreed that I would be happier laying around in bed all weekend relaxing and recovering. After all I am on day 8 of recovery and I figured by the time this weekend is over I will be good as new and she can have her time with my mom and still have time when she comes back to hangout with Bret and I.
Anyway I didn’t just look at baking blogs and recipes yesterday. I waited till about 3 pm when Bret got home and decided to whip up some of this delicious vanilla buttercream frosting and this genius two cupcake recipe which literally only makes two vanilla cupcakes, uses one bowl,and is super quick easy and delicious.
I still have yet to make this dish which I have been literally drooling over for the past three days. Maybe I’ll make it tonight for dessert who knows but I have had the coconut milk chilling in the fridge for the past three days as well and I’m so curious as to what it is/does.
I have my post-op doctors appointment today and let me tell you I’m so excited to ask questions like how should I manage my sleep and if I can have a refill of my medication because I literally am down to four painkillers and its killing me! The only way I can really manage my pain is if i take two pills of painkillers and I have some things I want to get done this weekend which I can’t do if I am in pain. I also can’t wait to see how he thinks I’m doing because I think I’m doing a damn good job.
Anyway I hope everyone is having a great day and keep your fingers crossed my checkup goes well!
Anyway happy Friday everyone!

So here I am again bright and early on a Thursday morning!
It is exactly a week to the day that I said goodbye to my tonsils and of course I had my usual 5 am wake-up call of searing throat pain followed by more pain followed by a healthy dose of pain medication. I, for some reason, tried to be brave around 3 am and instead of taking my prescribed pain medication decided to opt for over the counter Motrin instead.
I make dumb decisions every once in a while and this was definitely one of them, So dumb in fact that I laid in bed in pain thinking you totally deserve this you dumb-ass, and as I woke up in more pain then I fell asleep in, well really the pain that I was experiencing was more pain then I had been in within the last day or week really, but all is right in the world as I have taken my prescribed medication and am feeling like a semi-normal human being again.
How do I know I’m back to normal?
I’m up at 6 am browsing food/baking blogs for recipes of what I want to try to bake today! I have all the ingredients that you could need to bake and with my sister driving into town today I figured as a tribute to her I would try baking. As you saw from yesterday I have two whole cheesecakes and eight mini cheesecakes to eat which I figure will be eaten by the time we leave for the beach tomorrow night. Bret is in a fraternity and boys eat…ALOT. Mother nature also blessed my sister and I with a little flow to our lives so we of course can’t get enough sweet treats! So my sister should be arriving at my moms around 2 or 3 pm today and then I’m hoping she will spend the night with me as I have a doctors appointment around 2 tomorrow afternoon and I am not suppose to drive on my meds. She of course does not know this yet.(evil sister laugh)
Any way I feel like I have too much flour and that means that I must bake something which I’m feeling is going to be something along the lines of cookies or cinnamon buns or cake…yup that’s what I’m going to make! Better yet cupcakes! considering I told Bret I would make him cupcakes yesterday and I never did. Anyway I wanted to share two of my favorite baking blogs with you they are http://www.howsweeteats.com she is simply hilarious and also where i get a lot of my recipes and the second one is http://www.joythebaker.com Pictures to come later today hopefully my cupcakes turn out!
