On the Positive Side

I am trying to be a mature, grateful adult even while staying home with the kids for the fourth snow/ice day in a row, the fourth day of school that was cancelled right after a federal holiday, on the third day of living with a splint and sling. 

I am mostly succeeding, thanks to the world’s most patient husband, a 5-year old who can actually make his own meals when needed, and the kindness of friends who make food, buy coffee and food, and provide their children for my own kids’ afternoon entertainment. 

I am also learning about my limitations: I cannot use a can opener, open the tiny Tupperware box where I store my meds, or do my hair at all. In fact, I am very close to cutting it all off and if my beloved hair stylist agrees, the next time you see me, I might have short hair. 

But! I’m surviving! I discovered these super comfy bralettes from Soma, that while making my boobs into a uni-boob, I can put on myself. P’s kids floss is easy to use one handed. And with enough pillows all around me, I’ve figured out how to sleep mostly through the night. 

Thanks to everyone who has sent their love, advice, and food. ❤️
