I think sometimes we are made to suffer a bit so that we will appreciate the blessings of our “normal, boring, everyday” life. My weekend in a wrist brace reminded me of how very useful it is to have two hands! Coincidently there was a report on television about a man who had his toe attached to his hand to replace a thumb that had been amputated, and the MSN home page had a story about a man who had a double hand transplant. I don’t need a slap in the face to get the point! Lol
It is great to be able to type again. That is such a huge part of my life. I don’t know how folks type with two fingers or one hand or any other method besides the old fashioned way. I learned to type in Mrs. Hodges’ typing class and I need two hands for the technique and speed she demanded. Okay, so I never lived up to the speed expectations…
My wrist is better and I will probably leave the brace off today, but take it to school with me. I will sleep in it for a couple more nights because I tend to curl and close my hands in sleep and that is not a good position for carpal tunnel problems.
Very different week ahead. A little review today and tomorrow, parent conferences tomorrow night, library research and doctor’s appointment Wednesday, Christmas shopping Thursday, more library research on Friday, and Springer reunion Saturday. If the world ends Friday as predicted I guess I will not be at the reunion.
Most of us have been around for at least a dozen predictions of the end of the world. I’m not sure why people are concerned with such things since none of us knows if we will live through any particular day. Do they hope to sit around in heaven saying, “I was right! I was right!”?
Have a great day!
