I Need My Magic Cape

 I'm Wonder Woman, not a mere mortal, subject to the conditions and limitations of such. So, how is it when I went outside this morning I was shuffling and weak? I had to say 'uncle' after turning out horses, that's not what Amazon women do. Perhaps removing my appendix is equal to Samson having his hair cut. Maybe my appendix was the source of my super powers. What a disgusting thought. Ah, but I did cut my hair..........


  1. If it is any consolation, I have had a general anesthesia surgery and it took some time for all the weakening affects to wear off, but they eventually did! I felt tired and weak and just generally in a fog for a few weeks after the surgery even though the pain was gone. I really think the drugs take awhile to totally leave your system or at least their affects.

    I am sure you will be back to normal Super Hero status soon enough! : )


  2. I believe you may be right. Others have said it's the anesthesia, but it didn't make sense to me. But I think I've changed my mind. I'm not used to being useless, I feel like a malingerer.
    I cancelled the lesson for Monday. If I felt worn out from handling horses this AM I decided I wasn't going to be up to dealing with Zing and a horse trailer. I intend to help bring in the afternoon. A little at a time. I wonder where aging super heros go? Probably crazy. : )

  3. Aging superheros mentor and inspire the younger ones!


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
