Unboxing the PopSugar #MustHaveBox for October 2016!



Hi guys...so I was away for awhile having a knee replacement.  Man, that is ROUGH!  If you follow me on social media, you probably saw me about to loose my marbles the first month and whining about how hard it is.  I had unrealistic expectations going into it...didn't think it could be much worse than my neck surgeries, (they go in thru the front and pull your trachea and esophogas out and work on the neck bones from the front...ew), or my shoulder surgery.  (I ripped all the muscles and tendons off the bone and they were reattached with screws).  I honestly thought I'd be back to blogging within about two weeks while I recovered but was sadly mistaken.

At one month out, I was still barely mobile.  In my second month, I was trying really hard to come back to the blog and longest story short, I've had to dedicate myself to working hard on my leg and make that, not only my first priority, but a life consuming project.  The only way to get better with this surgery is too work as hard as you can as much as you can.  There's a period of time of only 3-4 months to get movement back and if YOU don't work it as hard as you can, you can't make it...and you'll never walk right again.

So anyway, that's what I've been doing.  It's very hard, but I feel like Rocky every time I finish a physical therapy workout.  And we have a right knee club there now, too, so we watch each other's scars heal and can talk to each other about things our SO's just can't relate to.  It sort of makes me feel old, but then again, I'm the youngest person there with a knee replacement.

Which brings me all to this:  The youtube video I made of my PopSugar Must Have Box unboxing for the October 2016 box!!!!  I love the PopSugar Must Have Box.  It's got such nifty items in it and the value always far exceeds the $35 monthly fee.  AND, they are full sized items!!!  Subscribe at the link and use the code SAVE5 for $5 off the first box.  Check my other videos for more.

You can subscribe, comment and even thumbs up the video.  I won't be mad.  Be sure and leave a comment and tell me what other kinds of videos or blog posts you'd like to see.  And follow me on social media for even more!




PopSugar sent this box free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.  The box has a suggested retail value of $153 all for just $35!  You can follow PopSugarMust Have on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, for more fun information.  ORDER here and use the code SAVE5 for five bucks off the first box!!!

Which was the item you're most interested in this month?  Are you following the "Fall Classic"...the World Series?  Who are you rooting for?  I'm pulling for the Cubs to break the losing streak!

  5. I love these boxes but they do repeats if you stick with them long enough. One can never have enough umbrellas, especially when it's HB.

    1. Oh I've not seen a repeat yet. What I like is how they find neat lit by things that I love, but wouldn't have known about otherwise.

  9. So sorry about your struggles with the knee replacement - my dad had one and it was brutal for him as well. Glad you are back on the blog!

    1. I feel for your dad. I'm having a really hard time sleeping because of the pain. It's taken over most of my life but they tell me that only lasts six months. Did he have one or both?
