Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Typing with one hand is a bit frustrating.  So is doing a lot of other things. After the stitches came out a brace was put on so my thumb and its tendon could rest.  I had my first therapy session the other day and have been given some exercises to do at home.  Needless to say the housekeeping has been put on hold as well as just about everything else.  My maternal grandmother had only one arm.  She lost the right one when she was in her twenties..and she was right handed.  Back then there weren't the modern conveniences we have now and she had to learn how to do everything with her left hand. I admire her tenaciousness, especially since my mother hadn't been born yet.  She lived with us when I was young and taught me some things, like how to tie a shoe lace and do needle punch.  Eventually she lived by herself and she managed.  I honestly don't know if I could do it.  I will do the exercises and when the brace comes off I will be careful not to do what made the surgery necessary.  In the meantime I'm learning to make do and not worrying about making my bed or housekeeping.
Y'all have a thankful day.

I reckon that we all have to learn how to do the best with what we have, but I sympathize with you for sure! I don't know if I could do what you are doing with any success!

Don't worry about making the bed. Who is going to know? I certainly won't tell anyone!

Thanks for stopping by, Jim. I just do what I can and don't worry about the rest.
