Feeling pretty good

Last day of clear liquids.  It hasnt been real hard, i mean i am not hungry but i did find myself at fridge once staring into it and at once closed it.  I was just bored.  I have not cheated or strayed from the clear liquids.  I am kind of tired of fruity drinks tho.  The crystal lite I had was too fruity.  I have different ones so I just have to keep changing it up.  I have felt good today.  I actually did some laundry and stocked a couple of shelves with water (cases of water on floor by cabinet).  I also cleaned off a desk in my room.  I did take a short nap but woke up energized.  I am not in much pain.  It hurts more when I go to lay down.  I guess it is the stretching of incisions.
Only thing was that this morning when I peed it was a bit dark which means I'm not drinking enough so I am working on that today.  It isnt easy.  I sometimes worry about drinking too much at once or too often.  Until I get used to it I imagine it will be a challenge.  When I do drink I feel bloated and swollen.  I hope that is normal.  I know I will be swollen for a while though.

Well, I am gonna go for now.  I threw a lasagna in the oven for my family (Costco).  My husband took my mom to go get some of her medicine.  He is such a good guy.  I will make some more broth with my crushed red peppers and enjoy.  Tomorrow I get cream liquids.  Oh, dear coffee how I long for thee.  Yum, cant wait
