Finding A Way To Work With My New Normal. . .

Posted Nov 23 2012 5:18pm
The original title for this post started out as Finding a way to work around my new normal until I realized that if this is my new normal ( at least for the time being), it makes more sense to work with it rather than around it. . .

I haven't been blogging regularly because while the tablet the boys bought for me is great for reading e-books, checking my favorite blogs or playing angry birds it is not great for working on as it doesn't have a separate key board.

I tried to blog on it a few times and I kept getting the wrongs words showing up, or not being able to see what I had written and, worst of all. . . .   there.  is. NO. SPELL. CHECK. on my tablet!!

Ideally, I want to work on my desk top. My new normal insists that my leg has to be elevated and the fact that  my computer is on a pedestal table means I have to sit sideways rather than pull up under the table.

My new normal also insists that I not put the keyboard across my lap as half of that lap has a rather large incision which, since my leg is unevenly numb,  means I can't feel which area to avoid. . .

So. . .

I have spent the last couple of days trying to come up with something that works and I think. . . I hope. . . I have found something that will consistently work. . .

How have things been going over here??

Last week. . . aside from two great outings. . .  beyond grumpy.

This week. . . after a visit with the doctor and the realization that it is going to take much longer than I thought to get even close to normal. . . oddly. . . a lot better.

It helped a lot that, when my two sister's -in law dropped by Sunday evening for a visit, one left behind a small manageable project and the other came by the next day and cleaned both my kitchen and the floors upstairs. . .

One of the biggest issues I'm struggling with at the moment is how little it takes to wear me out.

Tidy the kitchen and load the dishwasher. . . done for the day.

Visit the doctor and decide to go into the grocery store with Henry for a few minutes. . . toast for the next two days. . .

As you can imagine cleaning has fallen even father down my priority list than usual. . .

A bit of a problem when a clean pan or dish is needed for a meal. . .

Today every plate, bowl dish, pot and pan I own is waiting in the sink, discreetly covered with a dish towel ( or three. . .) as I chose instead to have a little fun and took pictures of my sister- in - law Leona's  jewelry instead. . .

I have no regrets. . .

Well. . . I might have a few by dinner time tonight. . .

Although. . .  with Henry out of town hunting, maybe it's a takeout pizza night. . . because that can be eaten on a napkin. . . so. . .  no dishes required. . .

Yes indeed. . . tonight is going to be a Panago night.
