Recuperation Projects.

Well, this has been way harder than I thought it would be. I guess I didn't plan on how difficult it would actually be for me to lose so much independence! Another thing that I did not realize is the energy and athleticism and grace that it would take to do simple tasks like....go to the bathroom, put on a pair of pants or get a drink of water! Muscles hurt that I never even knew I had!
Mentally, I spent a few days actually feeling sorry for myself and well just generally not being a very nice or fun person. At one point, I actually started contemplating inflicting mortal harm on JWS for several reasons, not the least of which included not flushing the commode or carrying the dirty dish towels to the basement.
I think I am coming around. Coming to grips with the fact that I might not be the most pleasant or obedient patient and owning it has helped a lot.
All that being said, the I Spy quilt is in the frame, the VBS houses are ready, and I have several scarves, a ton of yoyo's , quite a few wool projects and some painting done.
We are not going to discuss what isn't done. I need to just chant that last statement!

I pray you heal fast - I do know the same feelings...lol...I'm not a good patient either - thank goodness my husband understands that and goes with the flow...lol

Lots of projects in store for you...oh those VBS houses are just too cute!!!

Just remember, "this to shall pass" though I know that's easier said than done as I'd make the worst impatient patient there ever was......therefore working my way to the padded cell quicker than I could blink!
Hang in there girl ;-)

The next time I start thinking that it would be nice to be laid up a bit and not have to go to work, I'll remember this post.

The older I get the more behind I get,that includes the butt too !
So sorry you had to have surgery but good to know you are on the mend.
Broke my ankle years ago so know the the process of being a bit helpless.
Will most likely have knee replacement (both ) this fall.
Hope you continue to mend quickly.
Big Hugs
