After being out of commission for nearly a week, I have had a few observations.
1 - Television is a joke! If the shows aren't 'educational' then they are 'reality'. And if they aren't home improvement then they are 'news'. Talking heads aren't anything but annoying and there are way too many infomercials!
2 - Radio is not an improvement over television.
3 - Reading is great BUT you still become easily bored.
4 - Computer games, sudoku, and other 'games' to keep your mind from freezing up only work for so long.
5 - Stitching takes up a lot of my down time.
6 - You must watch sitting for too long as the scale starts creeping up on you.
7 - Being stuck at home and looking at the same four walls makes you twitchy.
8 - SAHMs are saints.
9 - Not being able to wash your hair correctly and styling (using that term loosely anyway) makes you feel less like yourself.
10 - Bandages stink after a few days and your skin starts itching like mad.
11 - Having never been in a cast (and thinking for years how cool it would be to have one) I now know it sucks.
12 - My life is very small.
13 - The world economy is in dire straights.
14 - When the highlight of your day is the mailman coming - you need to get out of the house.
15 - Making tacos for dinner and only eating with one hand does not make sense.
16 - Sweats are too easy to get used to and they do not let you know about what the scales are doing. But, you can go to the bathroom by yourself - and not feel like your 4 year nephew asking for someone to button your pants.
17 - Phone calls (even from telemarketers) excite you.
18 - I miss stitching more than I thought I would.
19 - You can not make pasta in a large pot without help.
20 - I have a short attention span!
21 - Getting old is hell.
22 - Retirement could be very boring.
23 - Tying your shoes is not easy with one hand.
24 - Being bored, having a debit card, and internet access can be dangerous (see number 14)
25 - Opening packages with one hand is still exciting.(also see number 14)
26 - Having friends is a blessing.
I did get one totally unexpected package this week. His name is Sam and he's come to show all my other crows how to fly!
Thank you Mary Jane!!
Well kids, that's a wrap from my spot on the love seat for this week!
