Needing to occupy the mind.

Picture yourself sitting in a hospital waiting room surrounded by people you do not know. Now think about the family member in surgery. They are close to you and its going to take 6 or more hours for the surgery to even be completed. And then you have the recovery time. Obviously sitting in one of the chairs with your thoughts is a bad idea. So what do you do to occupy your mind? I chose music and an adult coloring book.

@CRK109 Adult coloring books were introduced to me last year. I find it enjoyable and easy to pass the time. I also think it brings me back to when I was a kid. It can be fun to bring yourself back to childhood. Its relaxing in some ways. Also my sister will be fine and should be home sometime tomorrow afternoon.
I do love reading. One of my favorite past times is to curl up in or outside with a good book. Sometimes it will be a book I have read several times over. My only problem on this day was no matter how hard I tried I could not constraint on the book I was trying to read. To many people around me and worried.
I was in that surgery room 11 years ago, it took me 8 hours to get out from the surgery room and knocked me out for almost a day. My hubby was outside waiting and went off working and came back waiting again. My brother in law also came. No point waiting all the time, just carry on with your work.
