I never realized how much I enjoy my mobility. I don't watch mindless television and movies without having some other project going on. What follows is my descent into madness following the week after my foot surgery.
Day 1-2: "My assistant is so cute. I totally have to keep this quilt because of how well it fits us both."
Day 2-4: "I am a horrible dog owner," thoughts with intermittent, "I am so bored and nobody likes me," thoughts.
Day 5-7: "I have to get out of here! Where is my husband? Why have I been cooped up here so long? I entered the Red Dress contest at patternreview.com and I'll be damned if I'm not going to finish that dress. Oh, AND my shirt a month project. OMG....I can't reach the remote and I can't watch this anymore! Make it all stop!"
Now: Some house destruction but I am able to move and not elevate my foot constantly. The stitches come out on Tuesday and I should be able to take care of myself then. It is so hard being at everyone elses' mercy. Thank you all for your blogs because they were my lifeblood this week. Also, thank you for the kind words and advice on taking it easy. Taking it easy almost killed me, but I bet it will pay off in the end.
And I did get a small bit done on both a shirt fix that will have to count and that red dress. You'll see them soon as I have a deadline!
Oh yeah, and my assistant and I voted we do keep the quilt. :-)
It's so hard when you're a busy handed person to be still. I feel you! Hope you continue to mend well.ReplyDelete
You are so right it is! Thanks for the well wishes.Delete
Yay for some healing progress. I hope it keeps going well! The one time I was laid up for a week (rollerblading in short-shorts down a road called "Falldown Lane" - I'm sure you can guess what happened) I read an entire 10-book series. And was going stir-crazy by the end of it.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness!That is so something that would happen to me! I am laughing so hard with you, not at you. I'm glad you came out of it alright!Delete
lol, feel free to laugh all you want, it still makes me giggle. I came out just fine - ended up missing a week of exams (awesome) and the only lasting effect is a patch of skin on my butt with no feeling in it.Delete
