My Chefs

The boys and Mark have been taking turns cooking dinner since I had my operation last week.
I have supervised when the boys cooked and the boys have done a great job.

Brodz cooked tortellini carbonara

Angus cooked rissoles and veggies. He also cooked lamb chops and veggies last night. YUM!!

I Feel Under-dressed

I finally took the bandage off my wrist yesterday afternoon. It felt really weird not having the extra padding there. Apart from the fact that it kept my wrist warm (it's winter here) it helped my wrist feel more secure. I'm kind of worried that I may accidentally bump it now :-/ 

My fingers still feel a teeny bit swollen. I'm itching to put my rings back on my finger but I'm not quite game enough to do it yet. They do manage to slide on and off very easily though. 

I am dying to pick up my crochet hook again but I don't dare over do it. Not after driving the car yesterday and hurting myself. I guess I shall keep working on my crosswords puzzles. Thank goodness there are lots of puzzles in the book I bought. I am already on puzzles 6 as it is. Let's hope my wrist is better before I run out of puzzles. 

Someone please remind me not to touch the palm of my hand :'( I could've cried when I touched it just now.

Driving Too Soon

I think I over did it today. I drove to Church this morning which was all good no problems except for taking the hand brake off. It hurt my hand a bit to push the button in. My wrist ached a bit while we were at Church. I could handle that. I taught my little sunbeam class and once the children all went in for swimming time I asked if the Primary President if she minded if I went home. Yes, no problem. The children had a lesson with me and there were lots of others who could supervise the children for the remainder of the time.

The boys and I hopped in the car for the drive home. I reversed the car and tried to steer the car using both my left and right hands (to straighten the car up) when I got this awful pain in my hand. OOPS. It ached like crazy on the way home. Thankfully now it has all settled down now.

I'm thinking I got behind the wheel too soon. That being said I just get so tired of waiting for Mark to be ready to do stuff. He has his own health issues to deal with and by the time he is awake and alert to do the things that I need to do the day is almost done. I hate sounding ungrateful but it is very frustrating when you can't be as independent as you usually are. I just want my hand to get better fast so that I don't need to rely on others so much.

T-Shirt Yarn

I came across this video on youtube this morning on how to make t-shirt yarn. One day I am going to have to try this. I would love to make a couple of bathroom mats from old t-shirts.
