My thumb bandage is changed and much smaller but my agility is still not there. Today is short and sweet.
Remember last Sunday when I said the weather was going to break? – They lied. We never saw the 50 degree temps that were promised mid-week. We broke extreme cold records and had three (yes three) snow storms. The last one was predicted at 2 to 4 inches of snow. We got 7. If my work predictions were so off, I wouldn’t have gotten any bonuses or promotions or raises. Most likely I wouldn’t have had a job.
Housebound – Recovering at home seems like a great idea. No stress, taking it easy, reading, mindless TV. Peaceful. Lots of rest. It’s freaking boring! I may have to walk the mall with a plastic glove to shake out the cobwebs.
Finishing off, here are three things that are impossible to do with a bandaged numb hand:
- Floss your teeth. I swear there are big shrimp stuck in there. (Of course I haven’t had any shrimp so maybe not!)
- Type words that make sense. The bandage catches keys on the bottom row and often misses the space bar. Even I don’t know what I mean. (I wasn’t much for leaving comments on blogs this week either. It was too hard.)
- Wipe your bum! The good side of this one is that the pain meds block you so you don’t have to worry about it until you get feeling in your fingers again.
Sure hope your week was better than mine!
