Wow! Has it really been a month? Well, I’d love to share some fantastic news, and tell you all that I’m completely mended, that my wrist is “normal,” and moonbeams and ponies are flying out of my…nose, but…that’s not true. Left wrist was feeling left out, and now I’m sporting a wrist support on both hands. Ouch! Not only that, but I’m probably going to be making a “fashion statement” for a while. In fact, I don’t know if or when I’ll be back to the way I was before. That’s life, I suppose. I scheduled one day last week to feel sorry for myself, to really wallow properly, and have myself an ugly cry. Yes. I have to “schedule” a crying jag and make it work into my busy schedule. I’m not sure what that says about me, but I think that’s funny in retrospect. I’m weird that way. I waited until Hubby was out working, Kiddo was with the grandparents, and I FINALLY had the entire house to myself. It felt good to cry. I might cry a handful of times in a year. Crying isn’t really my thing. But, once I got that over with, it was time to focus on what I can do. Macaroni art, anyone?
With my wrist supports on, I am able to do most things, though I’ve had to learn to modify my daily activities and be a LOT more creative. My day job is a physical one; despite the cute management title I get to wear. Working 10+ hour days, doesn’t give me much down time either. Computer time aggravates me the most, but it is, what it is. What’s life without a little pain? I’m still me. I need my outlets. They keep me somewhat sane! 😉
On the bright side,I’ve seen more stranger’s scars and injuries in the past month, than I usually see in six. People really enjoy showing me their boo boos. I have that affect on people. Also, I’m on vacation for a week and a couple of bonus days. YAY!!! I’ve got a few pet projects that I’m looking forward to, and some reading to do. That should be fun. I’m spending some time with my family. Woo hoo! Plus I’ve got some SERIOUS TV watching to catch up on! Father Ted and Edward Elric say, “Hi.” 😉
While I don’t mind the look of my “Wonder Woman cuffs,” they do tend to get dirty. I’m thinking about making some cozies for them, something fun and a little whimsical. I picked up this package of socks for $4, on Thursday. I think I can modify them into something useable. Yes, I’m taking the Pippi look and running with it! Now…if I could just figure out an easy way to steampunk a set of wrist cozies. Hmm….
Have a great weekend!
