So, I am doing my best trying to figure our this whole cast thing. Honestly, I really despise it. But, I have it so I am going to make the best of it. On a positive note, my left hand and arm will be stronger by the end of the 7 weeks =) Actually, it is teaching me to be more patient and forgiving with myself. That is a hard thing to do! I am the type of person that if I am home I want to be doing something (playing outside with the kids, cleaning, sewing or crocheting...the list goes on and on). There is always SOMETHING that has to get done, or at least that is what I feel like most of the time. I am still doing these things, just at a much slower pace. I am using the dishwasher more often (why didn't I do this before!!!), I am breaking up my cleaning into tiny intervals so I can handle it without pain, and I am learning it is okay to just sit down for a few minutes. Why do we (especially Moms) put so much pressure on ourselves to always get it ALL done? Do you find yourself doing this or are you the "it will get done when it gets done" type of person?
Hoping ya'll have a productive yet restful day! Find time to do both =)
