I have only been in this cast since Wednesday but already have figured out some advantages to having no use in one arm.
#1 I can sit at the computer for as long as I like, without feeling guilty, since I can't do anything else, like housework, cooking, dishes, etc.
#2 The kids feel sorry for me so they keep asking what they can do? I refer them to above post: housework, cooking, dishes, etc.
#3 When I say I am tired, the kids say go take a nap, we'll watch the little one's.
#4 I have lots of time to read, remember no guilt involved for taking time out for mom.
#5 I am definitely going to save some money this month because going to Walmart is no longer as appealing. After trying to push the basket with one hand, load the basket with one hand, find the debit card with one hand, use the debit card with one hand, and drive home with one hand, this option is way too tiring. That's how I'm thinking I will save some money this month.
I do,'t advise you all to go out and break your arm just to get waited on hand and foot, but if it happens you might as well make the best of it. I think I'll go take my nap now. Are you feeling sorry for me yet?
