Its Wednesday !!

When you break your arm you adapt ,you learn to do things a different way especially when its your writing hand,its a learning thing ! You adapt!

Getting dressed for instance.... try putting on your bra with only one hand or your jeans !
Getting into clothing is an experience..... meant for contortionist only !!
Just using this computer I am typing with one hand .... well one finger really.... its a slow process.

Yesterday for supper I made chicken and lentil and spinach soup its easy and filling, as I was eating I was using my right hand, after a few spoonfuls I noticed my mouth was having to meet the spoon closer to the bowl~~ my arm was tired, eating with my left hand is messy business I had to make myself a bib out of my napkin.Not a pretty sight ......LOL!!

And on top of it all I am rather house bound not because of my arm or my ankle but because of solid ice surrounding the house, you could skate on the street right now, it rained last night and today is bright and sunny and slippery !! I can't win !!!!!!

When you break an arm you feel sorry for yourself that's normal but you must stop and see the humor in it as well,I have to keep thinking it will be a halarious story someday... right now I am living it one day at a time !!!

Hi Diane,
It must be tough to do the things that you once took for granted. I remember when my late mother in law fell and broke BOTH her wrists. She had to have help with everything (and I do mean everything!)
Hope you feel a bit better each day :)


~~~ putting on your bra~~ oh Diane I feel for you ~!!
I have trouble with two good arms>LOL
I use the sports type 'no hooks'..that helps..(:)
The chicken SOUP sounds good and the jokes are darling --Perfect ones for your situation..huh?? hugs,Patty

I'd not wear a bra; I wear only loose shirts!

Well, for sure Diane don't go skating off on this ice! I remember when I've had my right arm in a sling due to surgery. When I had carpal tunnel on both at once! Oh, was that scary. Hang in there, or hang "out there" as the case may be when braless!!! I hate bras!

Brenda said...

I'd leave off the bra too, and anything else that wasn't necessary.
I hope that cast comes off soon and the ice melts so you can be free!

you poor thing, I just stumbled on to your blog and cant believe your bad luck. I had a car accident 6 weeks ago and was just told 2 weeks ago that i had actually fractured my foot and tore tendons. Long story short I had surgery last thursday and am now using crutches. I kind of know your pain, lol. Best of luck to a speedy recovery! Sue

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I am so sorry for the broken arm. The soup sounds so good..m..

I think it's pretty much unanimous, just go commando! Less clothes to mess with,less hassle. The soup sounds yummy.

Isn't it funny - it's the bra everybody can relate to! And I cannot imagine how I would do that with one hand. You have to get creative, huh? Or get help!
