Okay, so this hand thing is getting played out. I don't mean to sound like a whiner, but really, my left hand is my long lost friend. While I've discovered many little tricks to accomplish things one handed, here's a list of just a few of the things I can't manage without my left hand:
Button jeans (who'd think I'd get sick of sweats?)
open pull top soup cans (it spilled all over the floor)
take oatmeal down from the top shelf in my pantry (it spilled all over the floor)
strain a pot of cooked pasta (DH wanted me to individually drain each ravioli out of the pot with a slotted spoon. I know, insert eyeroll here.)
Carry laundry baskets (not a perk when you need clean underwear!)
Shave under my arms (don't worry - I get help, LOL)
put on deodorant (again, I get help, hee-hee)
Blow my hair dry into any semblance of a style ( it's as flat as a pancake)
Hold the phone while multi-tasking (I bought a headset to ease the chronic cramp in my neck)
Cut my own meat (feel like a toddler again)
But all in all, I can't complain too much. The kids have stepped up and offered to help me. I get to poke around on the computer a lot. And hopefully it will only be for a few more weeks.
I've tried scrapping again. It's slow going. But I was inspired to try after my LSS owner told me about a one armed woman she observed at a crop. I finished this page for STM. The song this week is "Shine" by Anna Nalick. This is our newest nephew. Isn't he gorgeous?
Have you checked out the reader's gallery at Dreamgirls? There is just oodles of eye candy there. Challenge #3 will be posted on the first, plus we have some fun planned for NSD. You won't want to miss it!
