Sometimes we go for really cold walks, but most of the time we stay in when we can. Cuddled up under some blankets. Or get our sillies out by having relay races, hide and seek or other indoor shenanigans. It is a long winter, and with my shoulder injury it feels even longer. I do get to go to a orthopedic surgeon on Thursday to discuss either surgery or physical therapy. My will and stubborn streak alone is not healing this. I wish I could take advantage of this cold weather and get some stuff done around the house. We are working on the laundry room, but with one man down it is slow going.
Sometimes the only thing left to do is let Mother nature do what she has to do, hunker down, enjoy the beautiful winter wonderland out of my window, and ride it out. Sometimes life has to do what it has to do and you handle it the same way. Birthday’s still happen, the cold does not care if you are done with it, injuries don’t care if you have a fever for DIY and the only cure is more DIY. Or *cowbell (please tell me someone got the reference). Cabin fever has set in and all I want to do is be lazy and miserable. But I have a almost 7 year old who is looking to have THE party of the year. Time to get crafty, one handed as of right now, and get things done.
