Use Your Imagination

Things I like about having two mildly broken arms:
  • no diaper duty
  • no dishes
  • no laundry
  • no cooking
Things I don't like:
  • no driving
  • no beverage opening
  • no good sleep
And in an untitled third column:
  • inability to manage my own bra


  1. Yikes, that sounds like a huge pain. Literally and figuratively! I hope you're feeling better.

  2. How very frustrating.

    No cooking sounds good but no driving would be very limiting - and not sleeping well is the pits.

    How much longer till you're back to normal?

  3. Thanks you two! FH, that's a complicated question. My left arm seems to be healing well, and though it will probably take another month to be fully healed, I hope to have normal mobility and sufficient strength to drive within a week or two. My right hand works well enough (and is taking up all the slack), but hurts all the time and doesn't seem to be getting better. I'm supposed to keep it in a splint, but just can't spare the use of it. So it may be a staggered healing process: once the left arm heals I'll give the right hand a break for a few weeks? We'll see.

  4. Re: inability to manage my own bra

    *sings* Swing looooow, sweet...

    Ahem. Perhaps the "girls" will enjoy this time off, too.

    Do try to go easy on that right hand. Partial breaks can keep re-breaking themselves indefinitely; my brother had one in his instep for years and never knew.

    He finally got fed up with his foot always hurting when he went for a long walk and had it checked out, and only then did he learn he'd broken a 1995.

  5. LOL, JJ - about the "girls" I mean. Sorry about your brother! Actually (and I'm sorry if this is TMI), the girls are not getting any time off. In addition to diapers, laundry, dishes, and cooking, bra management has fallen to my husband. Would you blush if I told you this has worked out quite nicely?

  6. No sleeping and no bra managment sounds frustrating!
