Things You Didn’t Know I Did To Stay Busy While I Recuperate

So, I have been recovering from a broken leg for about two months now. The break seems to be healing well, but the other side of my leg up by my knee is in quite a bit of pain. I’m undergoing physical therapy and working on my exercises everyday. We’ll see.

So, what have I been doing? When you spend as much time as I have on a living room couch, you might think it would be so relaxing and fun. It was for about the first two days. Then I became restless. I watched so much TV and movies as to want to just turn it off. So, I turned to reading books that I hadn’t had time to read yet. It was great, but also grew old.

What to do? I decided, after I had recovered a bit, to paint. I had a few unfinished wooden pieces to paint and a large flower pot that I had started but never completed. It was a farm scene with two horses, a barn, trees, etc. It started out all brown. Then child #3 had painted one of the horses, some of the grass, and bushes. I finished it up, she painted the second horse, and we were done. Now, we just have to put a finish on it, fill it with dirt, and plant some flowers. Yay!

What else have I been up to? I have been communicating with my friends, sewing, praying, and basically doing anything to keep busy. It was awesome when I could finally hop outside on my crutches! The weather was amazing. My kids have been nice enough to bring me flowers and put them in a water-filled vase for me. A little bit of Spring inside my four boring walls!

Now that I am out for physical therapy it is exciting to leave the house! My big treat!

I’m excited to start getting back to life! I have been able to sleep in my own bed again, instead of on the couch, which is so wonderful! I missed it. Couch sleeping is great so that I can get to the bathroom easier. However, sleeping in my own bed is so fantastic! It’s the small things that make the biggest difference!
